Happy new year sweetcheeks!
Bet its gonna be crazy hot over your way! My girls and I are off on a road trip for 10 days, but I wanted to check in here first before we leave.
My daughter has,just as we speak finished Twilight, and could not put it down. Now I'm gonna read it. I'm currently reading Dear Fatty by Dawn French, she is an English comediene, it's hilariously funny, and pretty sobering also, it's like reading her diary. I'm really loving it.
I've heard of Maeve Binchy, that story might be a bit too close to my own lol. Im really not a big reader, I wish I had a passion for books, but I really don't. I'd read less than 5 books a year I guess. I did read a couple of Bryce Courtnay books, The Power of One, and Tandia, really really enjoy his writing, and The Power of One is one of my all time fav movies. I love it
The Lovely Bones... whats not to love chris??? The entire thing from go to woe, had me captured and swept away, laying next to suzie on a cloud watching from heaven, or grieving next to her father in the darkness of his house. I was completely spellbound. I have just got Dom to read it and he loved it too. I just connected with 'something', and it moved me so much. Yes its in post production now. Release date for US is Dec 2009.
Check out the cast! Very very exciting, I am beside myself with anticipation of this movie lol.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0380510/
OH MAN ... thats so cool, you adopted a child from Russia! I love that, SO MUCH. My neice and nephews are from China and The Phillipines respectively. They ROCK, I love them to bits, they are every inch Kiwi, but their parents are right into keeping their culture alive and well. I love the colour they bring to my family, its a beautiful thing. I bet you're such a great dad chris, you'd play the best games and be a total fool for your kids to get them to laff.
Happy new year to you and yours chris!
