Celeb: Angel sepia curls

a lost love is still love

First, a meme!

1. It begins with a list of all 26 letters of the alphabet.
2. Comment with something for me to talk about that starts with one of those letters. Make me babble about anything -- TV shows, actors, actresses, food ... be creative. :D
3. One topic per letter -- it's like a claims list! I will add to the list as topics appear.
4. I will post a new post talking about all 26 topics given to me!

I watched The Incredible Hulk on friday night.

Last week I bought The Five People You Meet in Heaven and The Time Traveler's Wife.  I'm midway through Time-Traveler's Wife, having finished Five People.  Right now, I'd recommend them both.  Five People isn't a tough or complicated read, but it is a touching and gentle one.  And the idea behind it - that in Heaven you actually meet five individuals from your lifetime who explain your life to you - is an interesting and thought provoking one.  Time-Traveler's Wife is very enjoyable so far.  It's a love story more than anything and very sweet.  It touches on a lot of interesting things about time travel and the consequences/considerations of it.  It's different from other time traveling stories in many distinctive ways, so you don't feel like you've heard this a thousand times before.  I'm really liking it.

I find that every summer I miss academia.  Particularly now that I have the time to sit down and really enjoy and contemplate what I'm reading, I miss English Lit classes.  I never minded writing essays for those classes and adored analysing a written piece.  I may have to sign up for an English course to take next semester in my evenings away from BCIT or something.

I was certain I had more to post about, but the topics seem to have slipped my mind, alas ;P!
