Obsession Continued (Why Don't I Learn?)

Okay, so I finally gave in and started reading Twilight again - this is reading #3, which is pretty big for me because there are very few books that I have read more than once (as in, I could probably count the number of books I've read multiple times on one hand). I don't even think I've read Pride and Prejudice or Jane Eyre more than once. Not only am I re-reading Twilight, but I'm also reading Midnight Sun - is that what it's called? - at the same time, and I'm pretty sure I'm around the same level of obsessed with it as I am with Twilight. If you don't know what Midnight Sun is, it is Twilight told from Edward's perspective. You might be thinking that it wouldn't be all that interesting - you already know the story - but I am really enjoying reading it from Edward's side. I'm getting to know more about where he's coming from. I think it's a good writing exercise, and I might want to keep that in mind for myself if I ever really write.

I am working on a short story, by the way. We shall see if I actually finish it. I kind of like it so far. I'm sure it needs a lot of editing, but I feel like the ideas are okay.

And now to not segue - my parents came to town this weekend. It was fun to visit with them. Here are a few pictures:



This last one's kind of crazy, but I like it! Happy September (almost)!

3 Things to Avoid When Going Salsa Dancing

1) Going with a friend of the same gender who is thinner than you are.

2) Going with a friend of the same gender who dances better than you do.

3) Going with a friend of the same gender who is blond.

I went with a friend who fits into all three categories - silly Jamie!

I'm Online!!

It's been over two weeks since we have had the internet. I've been using it other places, but I haven't been able to keep up like a 21st century American believes is necessary. Well, I'm back, and I'm so happy I just had to tell you!
