Random Thought Thursday

1. I wanted to read 100 books in 2011. I only made it to 89. Sigh.
2. Goal for 2012: Read 100 books. :)

3. I LOVE period movies (and no, I don't mean movies about feminine issues). Most recent love affair? North and South starring Richard Armitage and... you know, a bunch of other people. (FYI- this isn't a movie about the civil war.)

4. With the above love comes the wish that I could wear dresses that look like this:
It's no wonder I like to write time-travel novels
5. Just Dance is a great workout. And fun too! I totally rocked the Bollywood number this morning.
6. My mom makes the BEST chocolates in the world. Her fondant is AMAZING. Since I ate a bazillion of them over the holidays, it's a good thing I'm back to working out every day.

7. The Liar Society is an AWESOME book so far. Lisa and Laura Roecker- can I be your friend?

8. Another AMAZING thing? The new Sherlock Holmes movie. Just as good as the first. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have excellent chemistry together.

9.  I have an unnatural chipperness going on with me this morning. Who knows why. Or how long it will last.


  1. 89 books is awesome! You can do 100. :) Mmm, Sherlock Holmes.

  2. north and south is one of my favorite movies.

  3. The chipperness you speak of is most likely due to thoughts of Richard Armitage and all of the Bollywood dancing :) Good for you for starting the year of right!

  4. I love period films too! I have no idea why...maybe it is the dresses. 89 books in a year is still awesome and I think you have inspired me to read 100 for 2012. I better get off blogger and get reading!

  5. North and South is fantastic and Richard Armitage is a dreamboat =)

  6. 89 books is still fantastic. Hope the chirpiness lasts.

  7. I went through and read all the above posts...and wanted to comment on all of them, but when I got to this one, I HAD to write something. Because I have a love for North and South. Oh Richard...:)

    If we ever meet, we should do a North and South marathon! And I'd love to wear one of those dresses too. But not on a daily basis.

    Gosh, I feel like I haven't talked to you in so long! I've been a bad friend. Sorry. Hopefully I'll be better. I like the new look for your blog :)
