  1. I'll be there Jan. 4th! And I want to go to an earlier show, too, but I havent decided when yet.
  2. Luckiest, my book discussion group will be reading A Thousand Splendid Suns in a couple of months and I can't wait! I'm glad you're enjoying it. Even a fiction book can be a learning experience if it's well researched and well written. I finished TheThirteenth Tale and I heartily recommend it! It's the 'curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a blanket' kind of book. Settle in for a good story and prepare to be swept away. What I loved about it was that it was an engrossing, entertaining read and there was not one four-letter word, no gratuitous sex, no gratuitous violence. Not too m
  3. I picked up a book yesterday simply because I liked the cover. It's called The Thirteenth Tale, and so far I'm totally hooked on it! I had read that it was written in the style of the Bronte's, which is, to me, unattainable praise. But darned if the first three chapters don't call to mind the opening chapters of Wuthering Heights, or DuMaurier's Rebecca. Beautiful! I'll let you know how it comes out.
  4. 1/10ok ok - 5/10. Sorry, it's cute, but I'm allergic to cats! And it doesn't look like the kitty appreciates your being a dog walker.
  5. I lost my internet connection right as the show was coming on, so I didn't get to comment along with you. I loved the outcome! I loved at the end when TK said something about proving that nice guys can finish first. They were nice guys, didn't crap on their fellow travellers, weren't mean and scheming, no cheating and remained nice to each other. As for Grandpa, I was amazed to see that 69 year old man climb up the ice wall. Verrrry impressive. This was a fun season (except for N&J) . I'm always disappointed when the season ends.
  6. Anyone watching the finale? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know who I want to win. Unless someone does something really despicable tonight, I think they all deserve to win.
  7. yes, Yes YESSSS!!!!!!! I think Nate and Jen deserve each other. I'm so relieved that the other three teams will make it to the last leg. They're much more fun to watch. Not sure who I'm rooting for at this point....I think I'd be sorry to see any of them not win now.
  8. Why in the hell is Jen so whiney and bitchy just becoss TK & Rachel caught up with them? It's not like they cheated or had an unfair advantage, is it? That girl is the worst sport ever. Big fucking deal if it's her birthday...she needs to act like an adult instead of a petulant 6 year old.
  9. Another epi tonight? I nearly freaked last week when TK and Rachel came in last...I was so glad it was non-elim. But man they've got a lot of catching up to do in this episode. They're the only ones I really like at this point. The others just annoy me. In a way, I'd like to see the granpda win, just because of his age. But the grandson bothers me.
  10. gbmifan I hope the book club turns out well. I'd be interested in hearing about the club, what they're reading, how the discussion went, etc. I'm always looking for suggestions for my book club.
  11. I just picked this up yesterday. There's a new 'gift' edition out that looks like a typical Bible...black leatherette, gold embossing, gilt edged pages. I started reading it last night and it's so funny! Pretty irreverent, frat-boy one liners, but sometimes I just need to giggle, so I'm enjoying it. Last month I read Stormy Weather by Paulette Jiles. She also wrote Enemy Women, if you're familiar with that. It's set in Texas during the Dust Bowl, and is about three sisters and their mother trying to make ends meet after the father is killed. Also, I recommend The Glass Castle by Jeane
  12. Welcome, ashleysgram, Penny, Lotus, tinkerbell2, claylaughs (smitten), annabear, clay4shore, skybar22, RIFAN and underthespell! :F_05BL17blowkiss: . I hope you enjoy this board as much as I do! It's a nice place with lots of good convo, debate, snark and smut. I don't think anyone here takes themselves too seriously, we just love to love Clay.
  13. Last night in Omaha they didn't do the squeeing and whooooing when he sang 'oh baby, that's a fact'...and I just loved it! I always cringe when they do that, so it was neat that it didn't happen at the concert I happened to be at. Different strokes and all.....
