My posts have been infrequent as always, though I read my friendslist every day. Still, I thought I'd poke my head in and say hi.
What have I been up to since I last posted?
Well, online I have been participating in hogwartsishome
, but not as much as I would like. In fact, I just realized that for the first time ever since I joined, I didn't sort all of the applications this last week! Oops. :(
In the rest of my life, I have been playing D&D with my brother every other Friday, as I usually do, and also playing Sims 3 a lot
. I've become pretty obsessed with it. It's kind of funny, but the thing that made me decide to reinstall it was talking to somebody about how much it sucked compared to Sims 2. I feel like such a hypocrite now!
I got shin splints a couple of days ago, which really sucked. It made it pretty much excruciating to walk. It was okay, though, because it healed a lot faster than I expected.
My grandma is in town right now, which is really great. It's wonderful to see her. I also have an out of town friend in town right now, but I think he might be leaving before I get a chance to see him again, which is too bad. He's at a GWAR show with some of our other friends right now. I really don't get the appeal of GWAR. Call me a wimp or whatever you want, but the lyrics are just disgusting and offensive.
I've got lots of stuff I should do today, but I've been procrastinating on the internet as usual. I joined Goodreads
today, and it's really cool. It's basically a website where you add/rate/review books you've read/are reading/want to read. You can organize them on your "bookshelf", take quizzes, answer trivia questions, join groups, etc. etc. The one feature that I thought it would have, that I'm disappointed is missing, is that it doesn't recommend books you might like based on your ratings. That seems like a really obvious feature to me, but oh well. Anyway, if anybody has an account or wants to make an account, and wants to add me, my profile is here
Oh yeah, and I'm not seeing Deathly Hallows until Thanksgiving. :( But I'm already thoroughly spoiled for it, on purpose, so I won't be bothered if people talk about it around me. I've heard really good things about it, too. Anybody have any thoughts on it they want to share?
