I'm about a quarter of the way into Breaking Dawn, My review so far: "hmmm." Also: *blink* *blink* "Really?"

Out of curiosity, does anyone use Flock? I gave it a go because it's brilliant at uploading lots of pictures all at once. The nice bit is that, unlike Safari, it allows me to use the Rich Text option* here on LJ, and I'm fairly sure posting on the Yuku board will be less wonky. There's just an awful lot of stuff. It's a bit overwhelming.

I was going to crow about getting ever-so-close to my goal weight, but then there was bloating and crankiness and eating insane amounts of mini carrot-zucchini cupcakes. My goal weight looked at me in disgust before heading way, way, waaaay off into the distance. Lonely and bereft, I drowned my sorrows in another cupcake.

Aaaand... that's all I've got. I really should get back to reading the new Stephenie Meyer book, but I'm having a tough time mustering the enthusiasm. I'm darned close to just reading all the spoiler posts and having done with it.

*that's pretty much the impetus behind this post. I haven't a whole lot to say. I just want to marvel at the ease with which I can alter the appearance of the text.

eta: why is my asterisk-ed text so large? I tried to make it small, darn it! This is why I should never try new things. They just don't work. Sincerely, Johnny Raincloud.

I think I'll have a cupcake.

Am I the only person on the planet who liked Breaking Dawn? ::pout::
Dark Angel: FacePainteuph0ra on August 8th, 2008 11:15 am (UTC)
Nah I likes it :D

Although it HAS gotten a little starnge hasn't it? I am not yet done though! Hopefully by the end of today!

Breaking Dawn. I like it. Mostly. It's gotten a little strange but really where else could she go? I should be finishing it today IF I finish all my pre - faire errands in time.

Have you read Host? I really kinda want to read it.

I'm jealous that you're even close to a goal weight! I can't make any progress no matter what!

Haven't started Breaking Dawn yet. I don't wanna buy it, because I don't own any of them (borrowed them from my little sis, but now we're in different states again). I'm sure I'll get my hands on it eventually, though.

I'm having a tough time mustering the enthusiasm.

I had the same issue reading it. I pretty much forced myself to finish it last weekend.

Also, is that a Dr. Horrible animated mood theme? And where did you get it from?

I've yet to pick it up again. I really need to hunker down and finish. Maybe tomorrow I'll read a bit more. *sigh* Thing is, I loved the first book. A whole lot. And I liked the second, though it made me cranky, and the third was a bit better... I guess I just hoped somehow she'd magically recapture my heart and my interest with this book as she did with 'Twilight,' and... no. Not so much.

Anyway, YES!!! that's my majorly awesome DH mood theme, which took me forever and a day to upload even with the maker's very specific instructions, 'cause I'm a bit of a tool. Not of the corporate variety, more of the 'cobbled together from bits of string and a kettle' sort. But I digress. Find it here:

As yes, Breaking Dawn.

I have finished it, and I suppose I did like it, but I have to say I had no idea she would take it the way she did. Stephanie Meyer defied all of my predictions except for the really big, really obvious one that anyone who's read Twilight can guess. I know that if I was the author of these books, I wouldn't have finished the series the way she did, but you know, it's fun to be comepletely wrong sometimes...Like I was in 'Will of the Empress' by Tamora Pierce. Saw none of that book coming...lol.

Take care. Give Handsome Tom my regards.
