LJ Writer’s Block: What are the three best books you have ever read and what are the three worst? What made them so good or bad?
Wheel of Time I remember getting this book on Christmas Day, unwrapping it, and appreciating that my stepfather bought it for me as one of the first presented he ever got me. I distinctly recall being perplexed but the book jacket, the description didn’t sound that thrilling. It started very slpw;y about kids in a rural town, and then it started getting complicated. Before i knew it I was captivated. I think the WoT series is the first time I really related to the protagonist’s in a major way, I think because of the depth of the story. Eleven books later I’m still captivated by it.
Chronicles of Narnia This opened my minds eyes to magic and mystery and has shaped me in some ways. Children that were thrust into a land of magic and mayhem… It all swept me away. Similar books about english children getting into magical mayhem fascinated me too. Like Half-Magic.
Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs Until I read this book, I never questioned the tenets of Christianity. Like the fictional books I mentioned, this open a window in my mind to explore possibilities. Some of the New Age things Linda talked about were a little too much off the deep end, but it opened me to thinking about my spirituality on my own terms.
Lord of the Rings I’m sorry, but these books are a pain to read, because of the pacing. I read the Hobbit just fine, but never finished the trilogy. I think at the core it was the frustration of Tolkien’s lack of explanation of backstory.
Robin Hobb’s Farseer Trilogy The protagonist kept being treating horribly and then the end sucked for him too. I was pissed I read all that for that ending… bah.
Animal Farm Being forced to read an allegory about communism in school just sucks. Enough said.
An elephant and a crocodile were swimming in the Amazon, when the elephant spots a turtle sunning himself on a rock. The elephant walks over to the turtle, picks him up in his trunk and hurls him far into the jungle.
Croc:What did you do that for?
Ele:That turtle was the one that bit me almost fifty years ago.
Croc:And you remembered him after all these years? Boy, you sure do have a good memory!
There was this really smart sheep down in Mexico who knew how to make butter and buttermilk.
One night she sneaked across the border and got a job working for a farmer, who set up a roadside stand and told her to try to sell the stuff. Unfortunately traffic was very heavy and the sight of this sheep making butter and buttermilk was so distracting that naturally there was an accident.
The police investigated and issued the farmer a citation for attempting to make an illegal ewe churn on a busy highway.
“I just had an argument with a girl I know. She was saying how it’s unfair that if a guy fucks a different girl every week, he’s a legend, but if a girl fucks just two guys in a year, she’s a slut. So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it’s a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it’s a shitty lock. That shut her up.”—

This blog post is written purely in the spirit of fun. I love my furry community and am proud to be part of it.
A hungry lion was roaming through the jungle looking for something to eat. He came across two men. One was sitting under a tree and reading a book The other was typing away on his typewriter. The lion quickly pounced on the man reading the book and devoured him. Even the king of the jungle knows that readers digest and writers cramp.
That’s right, it’s time to crack out the tinsel, and string up the popcorn. Getting prepared for the holidays can be stressful. For me, I’m expecting a tidal wave of stress. When Space Mountain opens, all heck will break loose at work. I’m definitely looking forward to the challenge though. Oh, then there’s the festive parts of the holidays at Disney too, like Osbourne Family’s Spectacle of Lights, Holidays Around the World, and the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! However the best part of the holidays is the amazing times with friends and family. Happy Holidays!
Just got home from the fall ELE. I had an amazing time and I’m glad to have cemented friendships with people I’ve known and to expand on current friendships. I’ve gone a full year in the Orlando community now. (1st event was ELE winter) My first event I talked to random people, but felt really outside the loop. Fortunately, I found others with similar newbie status & found through them the foundation of the furry community. I’ve met many people and by delving into it, found others I really relate to. Of course the flip side are the ones I don’t particularly like, but that is perfectly natural and part of any community. Anyways this particular ELE was great. I participated in the brawl tourney, yea I really suck. I think my opponent was disappointed with my lack of skills, but I partipated. Props to Keon though, he won the competition and got to take home a PS3! He’s an amazing Peach player, and I’m proud to be his friend. I wore myself out with my friends, but the best parts were the calm moments with Kampie, my BFF, she and I are always on the same wavelength, and just being around her puts a smile on my face. She did some amazing coloring with only EIGHT CRAYONS this weekend. Was very cool. There were some other artists there, but it seemed very low attendance overall. I think the summer ELE turned a lot of people off to it this time around, but the air conditioning works so they’ll be back.
