This one was hard.
Day eight: an author that I don't like.
Myself. Now, before you freak out and call a therapist in for me, it's not that I don't like myself as a person...I am fearfully and wonderfully made :) I just don't like myself as an author.
I've been trying to "write a book" for the past several years. The plots always turn out sounding stupid, and the characters always turn out shallow and flat. I'm going to keep writing, but I think it'll be a while before I turn out anything that I'm proud of.

Do you think we all look alike? Because I think we do.
Book you had to read for school and liked:
Frankenstein...one of my favorite books!! I read it in school this year and fell in love.
Two best things about doing British Lit this year: discovering my love for epic poetry and gothic novels :)
I'm beginning to see a pattern in these posts about books...pretty much every post is about a book that I consider a favorite.

Well, yesterday, Rebecca hurt her wrist. Really hurt her wrist...like, it's probably broken. The radiologist is going to look at the x-rays and let us know hopefully today.
So now I guess it's my turn to break something...I'm thinking something big, like my neck, so that I can get more attention than my gimpy sisters. Haha.
Stay tuned for more encouraging health updates from the Light house!! I'm going to go wash down a couple calcium tablets with a large glass of milk, then put on a bike helmet, wrap my body in bubble wrap, and stay in bed until I have to go to the theatre for rehearsal :P

Deal with it.
I'm considering today "Day 1."
Various other facts concerning the aforementioned series:
My least favorite of the series was book 4.
My favorites are books 3, 6 and 7.
Favorite characters: Lupin, Sirius, and Snape.
(I have trouble picking just one favorite of anything.)
I wasn't expecting so many people to die. It was a wee bit depressing.
I cried at two specific moments in book 7.

I don't know what it is about it.
I just adore it.
I love Sean Bean in the first five minutes of the film as "the farmer."
I love love looooooove David Thewlis as Jerry the cabbie. He's wonderful. And he has gorgeous hands.
I love that I used to watch Black Beauty over and over at my grandparent's house, but I didn't really know what was going on because I was six.
I love the music. It makes me want to cry.
I love that that Black Beauty doesn't die in the end.
So, there ya go. Confession of the day: I love a semi-cheesy horse movie that was made in...
Fun fact! I just found out that Black Beauty was made the year I was born.

She was complaining about how she will miss the next two ECDs because of her cast.
I think she should just find a muscular partner that can carry her around.
