Celeb: Angel sepia curls


I love today!  After a week of super sun & spending time out in it, today is overcast and has the taste of storm around the edges.  It's awesomesauce. heh-heh-heh.  To top it off, mum's heading off for the weekend; it'll be nice to have the place to myself for a few days.  tater_mae is coming over tonight to watch more Who... we're nearing Doomsday rather rapidly O_O!

Also, timeblind tagged me in a meme~

Rules of the Game:
A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs & replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag 6 people to do this quiz & those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by & cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

So, I do tag:
1. skyebanshee
2. tvheartache
3. alias_chick
4. justlikeyou
5. silver_daecan (haha! JJ, i wanna see you do a meme.)
6. waveless

*stetches* My flowers are actually doing pretty well!  They're blooming and smelling lovely, so perhaps I've got my dad's gardening genes... *knocks on wood* << kinda ironic, doncha think? haha

I bought The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream by Barack Obama today. I'm not very good at non-fiction books.  I think I've only ever read one cover-to-cover, but I'm curious about what he has to say.  It was published in 2006, pre-Presidential Election days, when he was still simply Senator Obama.  He has a very easy and flowing style to read so far (I'm all of 2 pages in) and pretty honest thus far.  I'll admit to be caught up in the Obama craze.  His presence really impresses me and I've come to trust the guy.  Although that may simply be because compared to George W Bush, he's like Everest compared to the hill I drive up on my way home from school.  I don't particularly have big feelings on either the States or Canada, but if he becomes President, it would be a bit more tempting to move down south.  Or something.  o_O  Back to the book: he wrote it himself, in the first person it seems.  Again, I'm not a huge fan of first person either... there's something exquisite about omniscient third person pov, but I suppose when it says 'thoughts' in the book title, first person is implied.  Anyway, I'll keep tabs on how it goes.
