Books and iPods
Alrightie. Have you been having a good summer so far? I certainly have. I went to the Renaissance fair last weekend and got myself one of those big wooden practice swords from the Middle Ages. It’s awesome. Me and my brother have taken to hitting each other with out new weapons out in the backyard (he got a staff for about a fourth of the price of mine that is cheep when we fight). My mom got some awesome jewelry- stuff that you’d find in the Pyramid Collection catalogue. A slave’s bracelet, for one, which just might be my favorite piece of jewelry in existence. We all got henna tattoos, too. Mine is a lotus, on my collarbone, my brother’s is a sea horse on the back of his wrist (as he so often tells me “Look, I can make it swim!” and wiggles his hand), and my mother’s is two dragons intertwined into a heart, in between her shoulder blades. His got the darkest, and I’m a little jealous. Mine is fading already…
And today I’ve finally gotten an iPod to replace my broken MP3 player. It’s so pretty, and black, and I can’t wait to to start using it. Update on books: I’m adding the pictures of characters for In Black and White, and the premise of it. Because really, you don’t have any idea what in Black and White is, do you?
When I get around to it I’ll add more music to the music page. Like “Burn it to the Ground” and “The Fire Breathers” and “Kill Me, Heal Me”, etc. I’ve been exploring music a lot lately. I’m really enjoying the new Nickelback CD.
On that note, there’s the book I’m really looking forward to getting and devouring. I’ll tell you the story that I told Lily. I was researching Norse runes on the Internet, trying to figure out what they looked like and meant and how I could configure them. So, naturally, I went on photobucket, like usual, and searched for them. I found one really cool picture of runes and their basic meanings [see bottom of post], and notices that at the top it said “Mortal Instruments”. I was kind of curious, and I noticed that this person had an entire folder called “Mortal Instruments”. I started to look through it, and I realized that it was a series of books which just happened to have City of Bones as it’s first. This was really weird, though, because constantly lily is asking me if I think it’s worth reading. And, me being me, I had decided by the cover art that it probably wasn’t that great. That was before I saw this user’s fangirl collection of icons and pictures of Jace. I don’t know who Jace is, haven’t read jack in the series (alright, that’s a lie, I’ve read the first two chapters while I was admiring it in the store, but that was after the fact), don’t know anything about the series. Yet just by the icons, I am absolutely in love with the guy. Moreso than Edward, moreso than James, moreso than Delos, moreso than Lestat…AH!!! So now I’m dying to buy the book.
And that is the end of my ranting.
