      I once, in order to be a good friend, ended up at a midnight release of the 2nd movie and picked up a Twilight shirt and some fabric paint in advance. It is now a “Team Shovel” shirt with a big sparkly shovel hitting Edward in the face and lots of sparkly blood dripping from the head wound… But that’s just my personal take on it.

      You could so make a fortune if you marketed that shirt. I only just barely made it through the first book and agree with you. In my opinion, it was horrible but I’m certainly not going to begrudge someone else liking it. Unfortunately, my best friend is one of those people. But she has a daughter she can indulge her Twilight thing with.

      Am I alone in that I do NOT like the classics, either? There are a very few that I like but Shakespeare, Austin, Eyre, Melville and just about everyone else I can’t stand. But it seems everyone I talk to just loves most, if not all, of them.

      I don’t actually have that problem of not returning to a series. I’m horribly anal that way. Once I even finished reading a trilogy even though I hate hate hated the first book.

      Speaking of keeping books in order, there’s another site, http://www.fictfact.com, that I use to keep track of my series. They even tell you when the next book is anticipated to be out and you can keep track of all sorts of fun info like if you borrowed the book, what format it’s in. I can’t WAIT to get all my books unpacked so I can get all my series up to date.

      I know what you mean about Game of Thrones. It took me forever to get through it. But I think the last third made up for the first two thirds. Whipped through that in no time at all. It’s one of those series that I need a break before I started the next in the series and I think I’m almost ready to pick it up.

      I’m on GR as well, Angrboda there also.

      I tried the Game of Thrones series once, but never made it through the first book. There were so many characters and I lost interest really quickly when I realised that I didn’t really like any of them at all. Lately, though, I’ve been considering giving it another go.

      I’m a huge fan of books. I’ll read just about anything including cereal boxes and the small print on everything. One book I really liked recently was Hard Spell by Justin Gustainis. It’s paranormal without the romance (bleh). If you’re into fantasy, I love the Wild Cards series. Or Game of Thrones. I could go on forever…

      Anyone a member of goodreads.com? I stumbled on it a year or so ago and love it for keeping track of my thousands of books.

      Recently, no. I’ve recently had a look at my tea stash & was surprised by how much I have so I’m wondering if I really should order more. But I’m running out of one of my Harney teas and for some reason I really have a craving for oolong (anyone have suggestions for a darker one that can take hot water?). But there are also some ebooks I want (need) to buy so we’ll see which wins out.

      I started drinking bag tea in high school thanks to an obsession for all things British. In my early twenties I went through a really difficult time with my grandfather being sick & dying. For some reason, I turned to loose leaf tea as a crutch.

      I only use milk if I’m making a tea latte. I used to put it in everything but that was mostly to mask the taste of the crappy teabags I was drinking at the time 😛 I honestly can’t imagine putting milk in a green or Oolong. Seems like a sin against nature.
