Three Things  
1. I sat down and read a book today for the first time in so long I can't remember what the last one was. Even most of the fics I read are short.

I hate to overuse the word "magic," but it was.

Relatedly, I want to have Lynn Flewelling's children.

This would be easier if she hadn't had her own children.

And raised them.

And put them through college.

In any case, Shadows Return made me remember all over again why I love those books so, so, so-so much. ♥

2. I'M SUCH A GIRL. XD I watched "Music and Lyrics" with my mom just now. XD

No, really. And if all chick flicks are this genuinely enjoyable, I'm going to have to revise my opinion of the genre.

Drew Barrymore is just so damn cute, and Hugh Grant has made his living as a charmer this way, and the dialogue was great, and it was hilarious, and yaaaaaaay. XD

It was just FUN, and everybody needs a little squee in their day sometimes. XD

Dialogue sample:

"...that's... wonderfully sensitive, Alex. ...especially from someone who wears such tight pants."

"It forces all the blood to my heart."


3. I found that song.

You know, "Daylight" by Matt and Kim, whoever they are.

You know, the one in the Bacardi commercial.

There we go. XD

Uh, 3.5 -- I finished the chapter of "Chocolate" last night. And. Need to edit it. And. Will be grovelling at jenwryn's feet for a onceover very soon. XD

I'm lame, but you love me. ♥

...I hope. XD

Feeling: happyhappy

Yes we love you.

Also most chick flicks aren't that awesome. Most suck as much as the Matrix rocks...

Lurve that song.

Well, really the only ones I've seen are... this one, "Love Actually," which is a really good film, I dunno, "What Women Want," which is sort of like a guy's chick flick, "Sweet Home Alabama," which was a little dumb, and... "The Notebook," which was so bad I wanted to die rather than finish watching it. XD

Moar \o/

Yay to books! :D

I must say that I'm happy I'm reading more now too. XD And usually I go through at least two books a week...>___> Now it's like...I'm still on the first one and it's been two weeks. XD

/is trying to finish all the books she's bought here so she can bring them back home when she goes on holiday in a month. XDDD

And Yay to movies! :D I've never seen M&L but Drew Barrymore is adorable. :3 I love that slight lisp she has. SO CUTE!! x3

And lol, that dialogue is awesome. I love dialogue. XD If only I could do it well on paper/word as I do in real life. >.<

And of COURSE we love youuuuuu!!! ♥!!

Oh and that song was awesome! :3

I always mean to read more... all the time, but I just end up turning on the computer instead, and then so much for that. XD

...I always end up bringing them back intending to read them while on holiday, then... ferrying them back to school again. XD

She has this way of, like, pouting, but not really, that's just so adorable. XD

IKR. Though I tend to have the opposite problem; I write great dialogue but can't bring it to a real conversation. XD

Eeeeee, ♥! :3

Haha, saaaame! The computer is like....well....I guess fic - especially those lengthy ones - sort of count as books, no?? XD THEY SHOULD! :P

I'm the opposite, I buy them while at school, read them at school and try and finish them but in the end I kind of just take them home and attempt to read them on the 2570457-hour long flight. XD

I dunno, I manage to come up with some pretty awesome one-liners etc. but when I use them, people seem to stop and go, "Huh?" And then it's like *facepalm* -____- OH WELL, I'll just have to remember them and put them into writing or something. XD

I LOVE HUGH GRANT. XD All his movies are awesome. He plays the best smarmy characters.

I'm not a huge chick flick fan but I'll rec. my two favourites:

1. "Serendipity". THIS IS SO GODDAMN BEAUTIFUL ASDFGHJKL. Maybe it's just me, because I have a total girl boner for John Cusack, but I love this movie so hard. <3
2. "Pride and Prejudice" (the one w/ Keira Knightley). Oh Mr Darcy, you are gorgeous, and this movie nearly made me cry. So perfect. *noms*

Ha. XD I have to be in the mood for a romcom and a lot of them are crap, but there are some good ones out there.

'Course we love you. ;3

He's so fun to watch! 8D And they give him the best lines. XD

I think "Love Actually" the best chick flick I've ever seen, but I shall see if I can't check out your recs! 8D

Bahhhh, ♥ x3

Lol I must admit I love some chick flicks XD (example: Serendipity, the House on the Lake, How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days etc etc ;; ;;)

Beware the Crackbooks; they will eat your spare time! XD

Yeah, me too! XD I think I'll just forgive anything that gives me enough of a laugh/hour ratio, and if it's got reasonably plausible romance, I'll put up with it. XD

IT WAS FANTASTIC SO THERE. 8D And bahhhh, I'm just so glad you liked it; that made my night in so many ways. :333

More like win-beta is win plz. 8D

Eeeeeee, so very mutual...! ♥

I always forget how much I love to read, because reading stuff for school is never the same. XD

IKR. :3 It was just so adorable. :D

♥! x3
