I read them like that too! DH always makes a comment but I can't put it down. So you haven't been able to find it since Cmas? Dang, I better start looking - I just assumed I'd walk in this weekend and find it but
I'm really late to this discussion, but I am so excited for the new season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love Eric - I can't wait to see more of him on screen. :o)
I haven't been able to find it, but, I live in a small town and my only options are Hastings and the world's smallest Books-A-Million, should be *maybe* Books-A-Couple-Hundred.
Response is in white...
He did finally call; he's been having a rough time at work and didn't want to talk to anyone. I think he's going through another bought of depression (which he won't get treated for b/c he thinks it'll make him look weak; blargh). He always ends up shutting everyone out when he's in these moods and since I don't live with him anymore, he's not forced to let me in or anyone else for that matter. He's driving me nuts! We went from living together for 2 and a half years (I moved in unasked after about a month of dating) to maybe seeing each other once a month and talking over the phone maybe once or twice a week. I feel like I'm waiting around for him to dump me. Really, I just need to give him some space and he should eventually come around; I was too clingy and now I'm paying for it. =( But on the plus side, I've started working out regularly, writing, drawing, and I have plenty of time to study; so all in all I'm becoming quite independent (which I have NEVER been). So it's got to be good for me. Anywho, men are a pain!
I never read the Anne Rice books; I seem to gravitate towards books with a dash of humor, her's might be darker than I'm accustomed to. I'm sure I'll tackle it eventually, my favorite book ever is Insomnia by Stephen King and that has no humor really, just have to be in the mood I guess. Quinn killing Andre and then disappearing was his only redeeming quality (that and the tiger thing). =P
Oh, and never worry about being too nosy with me; b/c I'm as noisy as the best of them! =) Besides it felt good to tell someone about it, I'm always afraid of boring my best friend and alienating my parents against him. I really appreciate you asking, it means alot to me.
I'm glad you're seeing it as an opportunity to focus on you. And yessah! They are a pain indeedy.... Esp with all their "manly man" jazz. I've read almost all Stephen King's - except that series he has, some Tower series. Anne's are very dark and quite, um, sexy.
I'm glad you didn't mind - I am nosy but try not to be (with little success). And I know what you mean by spilling too much to those around you - it does change their viewpoints whether you mean to or not. I'm here anytime - k?
The Dark Tower series is actually pretty good! It can be really, really dry in some places; a problem with a few of his books (mainly during the beginning). Once you get into it though it is really quite an amazing story, albeit a long one. The most amazing thing about it is the way he weaves elements from so many of his other books (Insomnia, The Stand, Pet Cemetary, and others), books from other authors (Wizard of Oz jumps particularly in my mind and maybe a little of The Little Engine that Could), and even puts himself into the story (the ultimate in narcissism! =) ). Plus they started making a few comic books about the main character before the events in the books take place (basically prequels with pictures, and they are soo much shorter than the books!). It's definitely worth looking into if you can look past the dry parts. The best part for me was revealing the necessity of one of the character's survival in Insomnia. It was so amazing to finally find out why since one of the few things I disliked about the book was it never explained that part; I just didn't know that he would explain it in another book.
I am reading about this right now! I am likeing how the books are pretty ture to the show so far. I can't wait for it to come back on!
