Yeah, I downloaded the omnivore's dilemma ebook version some time last year. Im going to try and get to it soon.

congrats on your GRE!...i thought you had already finished grad school though.:confused:

 

 

thank you, and no.. though i could lie about it cuz i have over 20 peer reviewed publications and a couple are first author, i have not yet done grad school. looks like i'll be taking the first class this spring.

 

and thanks for the proppers peeps.

Doing it when you're financially secure = doing it right

 

I'm in a fairly prestigious grad program so that's cool and all, but my amount of not money is almost comical

word Realism. for me though, not having children has allowed every fucking door in the universe to remain open. i've managed to live life completely on my own terms, and you're right, since i did it all with a solid financial background i never got into trouble i couldn't get out of.

 

kinda looking to the future though, and that advanced degree will allow me to go overseas and get a job and not be a bum. prolly the final goal.

 

and yay. lots of books in my future

I have been reading more magazines than anything else lately, the kids drive for school along with looking for new news during the election cycle got me kind of hooked.

 

Read this article yesterday and enjoyed it well enough:

That Jasper Forde really sticks to a theme for his covers, doesn't he ?

 

the other books that are outside the Tuesday Next series do have different covers, to be honest those aren't the covers on the ones I read but couldn't find the exact ones

It was just a bad joke anyway.

 

I'm reading Deadhouse Gates. Second book in the Malazan series by Steven Erickson.

ok so i am loving this book so far.

very interesting analysis of how our culture has shifted to one that values personality over character, and why people think talking is so goddamn great.

 

 

if you consider yourself an introvert, i highly recommend it. and i'm only a quarter through it
