I have removed a few people from my friends list. I always feel… - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
I have removed a few people from my friends list. I always feel really bad about doing that, because I want to encourage everyone to read this stuff if they are so inclined. That's why I write online, after all. I just removed people who don't update much, and who (I believe) never read this journal. If I was wrong and you want to be able to read my secured posts, just let me know and I'll be happy to add you back. Or if you're new and you'd like to be added, just let me know. Around 25% (guestimate) of my posts are friends-only.

So it's monday again. I am really tired and painfully unmotivated today. I think I'll take a lunch break, check if the goslings are around, renew my auto insurance, and try to get some work done when I return.

I saw Pirates of Pensanse on friday, and I saw a bunch of juggling and magic and stuff on saturday. There was an act with a guy folding a banana when he was supposed to be folding a bandana, that had me laughing so hard my eyes leaked. Sunday was wonderfully lazy, and I finished my book (Secret Life of Bees). Also last week I finished my other book (Whuthering Heights). This is good, except now I must find something new to read.

I've got lots going through my head about my lack of motivation, and the general direction I would like my life to take -- but the aforementioned lack of motivation has stopped me from writing about it. Hopefully soon....

i absolutely adored The Secret Life of Bees. i'm about to start The Life of Pi. i've been told it's slow moving but picks up. i hope so - i'm leading a book discussion group about it at the end of June.

Yes, I agree: Bees was very good. Is Pi by the same author? Maybe I'll look for it... I have a variety of books floating about my house, but nothing that's really drawing my attention yet.

The Life of Pi is by Yann Martel (:

Thank you for keeping me on your list! I know I don't comment much, but I find your posts absolutely fascinating.

My pleasure! I remembered that you were more of a reader than a writer, so I figured you were still around. Glad to know you enjoy...thank you. (:

It's the cat-like tread song that's been stuck in my head on and off all weekend!

that's a great tune! Thanks! Now it's running through *my* head! ;)

Gee, if you're reading Whuthering Heights, you really need to get something new. Of course, I re-read Jane Eyre last year since a couple of the book discussion group books dealt with a storyline like Jane Eyre or involved the book itself as part of the plot (The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde.

So, have you bought a bicycle?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: May 17th, 2004 01:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nope, not yet. I've visited many closed bicycle shops though! Even one open one, but it was when I only had 10 minutes to spare. They do not keep convenient hours.

woo hoo!

I'm a terrible friend--I write and comment very sporadically, but I am pleased and honored to be added to your list...

also, it's amazing how many things have secret lives these days. plants, bees.... you name it.

and yet, I find myself wondering what the bees are really doing and thinking that is so fantastically interesting.

I've been meaning to read Pi for awhile.

Re: woo hoo!

Welcome, o terrible friend! It was fun bouncing with you saturday.

The book wasn't about bees so much as beekeepers and women and a motherless-girl and racial tension in the south 1964. I can loan it to you if you're interested... it's just sitting on my shelf now.

Re: woo hoo!

yeah, it's just that I hate the hypocrisy of it all. first it's about the bees; then it's not about the bees... when will the bees be allowed to have their voice?

Hey! You may have already read this, but "All the Sundays Yet to Come" is an awesome book! It's about the life of a figure skater while she skated for a traveling ice show. I can't remember the name of the author off of the top of my head, but if you're interested and can't find it, I'll try to!
renniekins From: renniekins Date: May 18th, 2004 07:21 am (UTC) (Link)
ooh, thanks for the recommendation! I haven't read it, but it sounds really good. I'll look for it!
