Moment of Nothing

I dont have much to say. At the moment I'm in between piano students. My next one could be here any minute. Just thought I'd pop into my blog for a sec and see if anything was new. It's not.

Random Thoughts on a Sunday

I tend to get car sick, but only if I do certain activities. Which can make road trips very boring for me because the following activities make me nauseous... reading, chewing gum, eating most food. One thing that makes me feel better is eating nice cold fresh fruit. Which is hard to come by at greasy rest stops. But I still like traveling.

If I could, I'd wear flowers in my hair everyday.

I'm not a very picky eater. I'm willing to try just about anything. Actually the only food I absolutely refuse to eat (without having tried) is tofu. I think I'm more open-minded about food than most people. But I am kind of snobbish because I'm very picky about the quality of my food.

Biting Bugs

I went to one of my husband's softball games on Monday night. I think I set a record for most bug bites recieved in 1 day. Actually I was only outside for like 2 hours. But I got 37 bugbites. Most of them (25) are on my right foot. The rest of them are on my left foot and left hand. Luckily I dont think they are from mosqitos, so the bites are pretty small. But that doesnt make them less itchy... they are driving me crazy.

I know what happens at the end of Book 6

I finished the Harry Potter books at 10:30 Wednesday morning. I read all of them (except Book 2, which I havent been able to get a hold of yet) in 1 week and 5 days. Well within my goal. Yay me!

My overall assessment of the books: They are fun to read. Books 1 through 3 have a somewhat similiar plot line... Harry is at home in normalness, then goes to school where he gets himself involved in some mystery. He is suspicious about certian people who he thinks are involved, but then you find out at the last minute it's really the "last" person you would have expected (under the influence of Voldermort of course). Harry defeats them and then returns home at the end of the year. Books 4-6 change some aspects of this plot line, in that now you see the bigger picture of what is really going on with Harry. So I think those were a little more interesting. But still, these books wont change your life, but they are entertaining.

The one problem with reading that much Harry Potter in less than 2 weeks is that it was starting to mess with my mind. Funny how easy it is to lose track of fiction and reality. But now everything's back to normal . So now, just like everyone else I have to sit around (which will give me time to catch up on housework) and wait for the next book to come out. Hopefully that wont be too long from now.
