I went a month without updating? Bad Clay. :P (Though I do read my f-list every day.)

Anyway, one of the reasons I haven't been around much lately is I've been playing World of Warcraft, but before the chorus of groans comes up, it's actually not what's been taking up most of my time (after all, I've been playing since mid December, and I was obviously hanging around more then ^_^). Most of my time has been taken up with reading, actually. I've gotten back into books lately and spend a LOT of time reading. And walking. And doing Island Officials work. But mostly reading. While walking.

See, the majority of my family plays this DS "game" called Personal Trainer Walking, and once you see someone else playing with it, you want one for yourself. It comes with a pedometer and you have a daily step goal, and my step goal is such that it requires at least an hour of straight walking to complete, but I've been walking so much lately, that's it's hard to walk for only an hour. ^_^

What helps is that I've been reading a lot while walking. I started with one of the Ghost Hunters books, then moved on to Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie, and it's my favorite of hers that I've read so far. It's a great read and I'd totally recommend it to anyone.

I've also gotten back into an author I used to read in high school, and I haven't touched any of her books in over a decade, so while I knew I loved her, I'd forgotten just how fabulous she is. I read through the four Vampire Diaries books that were out when I was in high school, and today I just started the recently published fifth book in the series.

Okay, my thoughts on VD: The Return: Nightfall without being too spoilerly. )

Kat! Read the damn book, so I have someone to talk to about them!!! D: Also, where is a flight point in Desolace? I wandered through there today, and I figured there'd be something by the Kodo Graveyard, but I couldn't find one.

Also? Is it just me or does Craig Ferguson talk about nothing but Robot Skeletons on Twitter?
So what's going on with me? Well, running an actual Secret Santa this year. Been a while.

Finished Christmas shopping for both humans and animals. So broke. Had a Christmas party at IO. Made baked ziti. Saw a play of Pride and Prejudice that was being put on at my...I'm inclined to say "my college," which is true, though I mean my job, I guess...? It was good. Makes me want to see the mini series.

What else? Been watching a LOT of Detective Conan. It's a great show for people who like to try and figure out murder mysteries. It makes me happy. :)

I'm doing a trial run of WoW right now. I like it...but it's hard. :P And I'm whiny. Have to see where that goes. I could get into it, but I don't have the time. But I'm going to take advantage of the trial while I have it.

Oh, and Lyndsey's sister went into labor this morning! So yay for her. ^_^

Oh, and I saw New Moon. God, that shit's ridiculous. I'd love to see the MST3K guys go after one of those movies. Everyone looks sick to their stomach all the time, the dialogue is constantly broken and stilted and Bella shakes like she just fell into an ice covered lake. Not to mention the seriously disturbing themes present throughout. At least it was funny. Not intentionally, of course, but it was hilarious. :P

And that's really it, isn't it? Huh. Life is lame right now, but lame in the good way. ^_^

Ooh! No, wait! One last thing! James Franco on General Hospital for the win! He plays such a deliciously insane character, and he's fitting in to the whole soap opera thing rather well. Don't really watch soap operas, but he's totally worth it. Someone is uploading all his scenes to youtube, though, which makes life easier. ^_^

It so fucking royally pisses me off when I'm trying to speak up for others and I get no help. I mean, sitting in the corner nodding doesn't really help, now does it? I'm not actually pissed right now, though. Just venting. No, really I am still pissed. Just not about that. When you were a kid, did you ever have "friends" who stopped hanging out with you because they're asses? Like boys who stop hanging out with girls when they hit puberty just because they're girls or people who don't want to hang out with you because you're not cool enough? Aren't those people assholes? I hope they all die slow, horrible deaths.

I've been making bookmarks for the library. Have I mentioned that yet? Yeah, I was put in charge of designing better bookmarks than we used to have to give out to the patrons with information like the library hours and how to renew your materials online and whatnot on them. It's fun because I get to sit at work and play on Illustrator. :) I finished my third one today. It looks nice.

I'm working on a secret project of secret that only two people on here know about. Shhh. It's kicking my ass, but at the same time I'm being kind of optimistic about it.

It's almost October! D: This fall is too busy. I have waaaay too much shit to do. I need a planner or something. I'd never use it, but I totally need one. I think I have art due next week AND I need to figure out how to put together October's even for wl_f. I mean, I have it and stuff...I just need to write up instructions in a way that don't make it seem scary and complicated.

Anyone else watching the Vampire Diaries? I read the series when I was in highschool, so I'm all kind of excited about this series. Damon fucking rocks.

Hey Kat, want to go see that meatballs movie tomorrow?
