“The greatest thing you will ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”
That is my quote of the day, because I just watched that movie again. That’s why I have a Nicole Kidman avatar, becuase it’s from Moulin Rouge! I adore that movie. Listening to Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street soundtrack. Still haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’m loving the soundtrack! I am currently reading Neil Gaiman’s Stardust and I love it!
Anyway, I haven’t posted forever. I am taking a break from writing because I have midterms and I can’t get into any of my stories, except one and I have to come to up with a decent skeleton for it, and so far all I’ve got is the ribcage, if we’re still going with the bone metaphor.
Have I ever told you guys how much I despise young adult novels? The supernatural ones at least? Well, I’m going to go off on my little hate wagon and tell you guys anyway.
First of all, the heroines or heroes are usually annoying little nits that you absolutely cannot stand. I know that. Sorry, Fluffy, but I have to rag on the Isabella Swan character. All that chick does is cry or beg someone to bite her. I honestly don’t see the allure of immortality. I’ve suffered enough in the fifteen years I’ve lived. Why would I want to live till the end of time? Then, you have the stories that have the funky endings that are so open that you could just really shoot the book. I hate those. I guess I am just used to reading the adult supernatural novels where the characters are amazing. I’m done.
I just got some young adult books and I tried to read them. I really did…then I quit. I still have a couple Anita Blake books left to read…and one to buy because Ramxpage’s b-day is going to be here in three days’ time! But, we also go back to school that day. I can’t wait to give Ramxpage her birthday card. It’s so wrong that my mom won’t let me show my dad lest he have a heart attack. 😀 Yeah, that’s how bad it is.
My second favorite Christmas movie was played four times a row on TBS the night before Christmas. Christmas Vacation is the best Christmas movie aside from It’s a Wonderful Life because it is so hilarious. I laugh every time I watch it, no matter how many times I’ve watched it that way. Chevy Chase is just so expressive. 😀
