|This is me, the Heat Miser|
Anywho, October was great! I went to two concerts, made some new friends, played a lot of music, did a little bit of writing and reading, and a lot of laughing.
I mean, it wasn't all fun and games. Sometimes, life sort of punches you multiple times in the face in one week and you just want to sleep until it blows over. But you can't. So you pray and cry and pick yourself up and keep going! Because although life isn't all sunshine, it's also definitely not all bad (I wanted to say rainclouds, but I like rain so those metaphors are lost on me)! Anywho, philosophical rant/discussion over! Moving on to the best of this month!
|It's as good as it looks!|
Netflix got a lot of new Gene Kelly/Frank Sinatra/Bing Crosby musicals and I've seen most of them already! I watched High Society, which you HAVE to watch Naomi! It's confusing at times because there is like a love hexagon, but as a song says, "It's swellegant!" I'll probably be reviewing it soon! And there's jazz and Louis Armstrong which automatically makes it 5x better!
|I cropped my sister out XD|
Oooh and I watched Casablanca which I got from Eva! (Thanks!) It was fabulous! I want to watch it again before I review it, but it was amazing! And he did the noble good gentlemanly thing and just yes!! Also, Ingrid Bergman is just perfect!
Some more little kid quotes
Me: This verse says "Keep thy tongue from evil"
Little girl: That means don't stick your tongue out.
Little boy: Don't say stupid.
Whole class: *gasps*
Suuuuure. I guess that works!
|Yes, I wear the same shirt to every concert.|
And I'm 5'3" so he's like 6' with the longest hands I've ever seen
So I read a book report book, 2 Rose books, and failed miserably at this Nancy Drew book. AGAIN. I might have to drop that one :( But I got the rest of the Rose books from the library, so I'll probably finish this month! Yay! It's happy and sort of sad because I've liked all the Little House girls so much! And maybe I'll get to read the second Hattie book this month because the first one was sooooo good!
Planning next year's reading. (Lois already put her challenges up!)
Getting answers to emails!
Finishing the Rose series
What are Octobers like where you live? If you plan your reading, when do you start?
