Long time no see

Apologies for the light posting this week. Just soaking up some quality time at home before I have to return to school next week. There's not much going on in the news and the movies we've been watching have been horrid. We made it through the first 10 minutes of Barefoot in the Park before ejecting it due to excessive Jane Fonda-ness and haven't yet finished Seems like Old Times with Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn.

I did read "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman, however, and can highly recommend it. If you liked Harry Potter or the movie Stardust you would probably really enjoy this book. I love Gaiman because he always invents his own mythology and doesn't rely on the boring goblins/vampires/fairies/blah stuff everyone else uses.

This is Neil Gaiman:

Well, I am a total Harry Potter fanatic and I loved the movie Stardust so I will be checking this book out! Thanks. By the way, I love your new family picture.

I also may check it out, that is if our stupid library has ever heard of it. They don't have much. I, like Jessica am always looking for a new author.

Don't let the beginning disuade you. It's fairly dark. Just give it a chance-it's very very good and very entertaining and creative.
