  1. I read so many books over the summer, it's hard to believe I didn't come on here and put reviews. Anyway, I took a break from novels for a while, but now I'm back. I just finished reading "Snow Falling on Cedars" by David Guterson. In high school, Ishmael Chambers and Hatsue Imada are secret lovers. World War 2 breaks out, Hatsue is sent away with her family to an internment camp and Ishmael goes off to fight in the South Pacific. In 1954, Hatsue's husband is on trial for murder and Ishmael is the town's lone newspaperman still bitter about their broken romance and his war experiences. Was the murder racially motivated? 9/10
  2. I bought my daughter a bunch of new clothes. She has outgrown a lot of her fall clothes from last year. My kid hates to shop (I know, unusual for a girl) and she'd wear the same clothes everyday, if she could. She needs to be bribed with ice cream to try stuff on.
  3. Yes, I have! At least what, 10 or 11 years??? The next poster is in a relationship

    8/10, I love the crunchy ones better, but still, YAY for artificial cheese flavored junk food. yogurt
  5. I knew I was old when I started at my job and work with people who weren't even born when I graduated college
  6. I gotta see that movie, and get a hold of that soundtrack!
  7. Birdman - 8/10 Michael Keaton plays an actor who is trying to revive his career by writing and starring in a Broadway show based on a Raymond Chandler story. He is trying to shake off the fame from a superhero movies series he starred in and gain credibility, but is he losing his mind in the process? The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - 6.5/10 Cute feel-good movie about elderly Brits looking to put a little oomph in their life by checking into a hotel run by an ambitious, but not too business savvy young Indian man. Love is found, lost and of course, there's a happy ending. Unbroken - 7.5/10 I felt cheated that we didn't get to see the redemption part of the story, only the suffering. The movie does a disservice to the book by only giving Louis Zamperini's struggle with PTSD and alcoholism a brief mention. I felt like the movie was too focused on making Louis look good, rather than fleshing him out and making him more human.
  8. Watched "Life of Pi" this weekend with my husband. Anyway, if you've read the book or seen the film, you know the ending. My husband turns to me and asks "So what happened to the tiger?" I explained my theory to him and he said "I don't like that story". I smiled and said "Isn't that what the Japanese guys said?" Sorry I'm being cryptic, but I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it. Thought provoking movie, and visually amazing, too

  10. I took a bit of a hiatus, but I'll try to be around more.
