I just registered to at www.nanowrimo.org to write a novel in the month of November. This should be interesting; I complain to my husband that I don’t have enough time to write on my blog, so I’m not sure how I will fit in writing a 175 page novel. I guess I’ll go with the whole quantity over quality theory. And I will only read book club books. That should free up a lot of...
Jurassic Park Dreaming
I remember when Jurassic Park came out. It was amazing, terrifying and completely awesome. I remember when it was being released on VHS and we put our names on a waiting list to buy it at our local video rental store. (Which I seem to recall had a tanning bed.

The trip to England.
I would like to say that I have never drunk so much tea in my life. And this English cream tea thing - AMAZING! Basically it’s tea with scones and jam and super heavy delicious cream to put on your scones. About 2000 calories per tea. I’m salivating just thinking about it. Oxford. The place I never knew I always wanted to live in. I couldn’t help but get my geek on as we...
