You know that friend Friday thing another blogger does? Well I'm playing. Sort of :)
Top 5 favorite books. This is hard. My list changes through out my life. At this exact moment. In no particular order. They seem so OBVIOUS but maybe they are obvious because they are awesome?
1. Matilda by Roald Dahl
2. To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
3. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn By Betty Smith
4. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
5. A Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger
Two that just quite didn't make the list but should be like 5 b and 5 c
The Roald Dahl Omnibus and Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut. Both are books of short stories that I read over and over and over and over.
6 would be "anything by William S Burroughs, even the weird shit"
Last 5 books I read. When I get it from the library I have a much more lax tolerance level for "good". If I pay I want it to be amazing.
Girls in White Dresses. eh. Library book
Book 4 in the Vampire Academy series. Library book
Night Circus. Slow but great.
Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad. Library book
Don't Look Down. Library book
(yes there is a pile of computers next to the couch. Dating back to 1997)
Someone is the smartest kitten in the world. She knocked over the couch cushions that were next to couch and she set up a fort in front of the radiator. Why aren't the cushions on the couch? Because our couch sucks. We only bought it like 3 or 4 years ago and it is a piece of crap. I've been complaining about it for a few years now. We have all these photoshopped pics and pics of us trying out new couches.
We actually just ordered a new one. It won't be in until after Christmas. We have been planning on it for months and had a quote all printed up and were going to wait but we are playing the odds. Jordan's furniture has a thing if you buy a couch in the month of October and the Bruins win the championship next year you get your money back. We planned to get it by Christmas so we went for it and did it now before the deal was up. The Bruins aren't #1 right now but... if they do win. We win!
We are going to put this couch in the guest room because it is actually a sofa bed.
Anyone who knows me from anything other than my website know my online persona as Miss Matilda. It's my twitter, flickr, instagram, old blog.. everything. (I used to be Angry Candy before that in the 90's) It's actually what my mom has me under on her phone. I am such a rule follower I always give my real name for things but yesterday I was feeling plucky (hey I never said I was badass. I am SO lame.) and I said Matilda when they asked at Starbucks. Totally stupid but made me laugh. (Thanks Becky! I used my gift card!)
Any plans for this weekend?
We are going to a craft fair. Other than that Dave is studying. His first exam is in just a little over 2 weeks.
Fave 5 books?
