Feels Like Friday

BEDA the last!



It feels like Friday. Yesterday it felt like Thursday. For some reason, this week has just felt off-kilter. I know I still have to go to class in a bit. Well, I must eat, check on Suite Scarlett, talk with my Professor in office hours, read something before class, oh, take a small survey for money and then of course go to class. We get some sort of paper topic for the massive paper due at the end of the quarter. Then I have to buy bread, so we have something to make… Continue

"YA" Books and Reading in General

Penultimate BEDA! (of 2009)



I don't have a theme or anything for today, although I do have stuff to discuss. Perhaps I do have a theme after all. But first let me get some stuff out of the way. Yesterday I received my copy of E. Lockhart's The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. My little order tracker said it was going to arrive on the 30th. It came early! When you add in the fact that is was a hardcover cheaper than all of the paperbacks I got, I am happy. (Not… Continue

Collections of Books

BEDA about Books!



Whilst I was in the library (one of them) reading that book without zombies, I chanced to glance at a flier for a book collection competition. The prize is money. I like money, for it allows for the purchase of stuff. The prizes seem to range from about $100 to $500. So it isn't a giant prize, but it is nothing to sneeze at (unless you have flu of pig). Of course, my eyes were drawn to the word book. Book collection? I wasn't sure what that entailed. Did I have to… Continue

Quick! Write the BEDA!

BEDA quickly!



This is timely in that it comes on the day the Maureen wrote a hilarious post about deadlines and procrastination and such. You may find it here, if you haven't found it already. Right, so I now have very little time to write this, having squandered precious minutes reading MJ's post.



Today I woke up at 6:25 (approximately) in the morning. It is a lovely time in the… Continue

o.o Wow. You have read a lot of books this year.

Hey Chris, how are you? Just dropping by to say hi =)
At 9:30pm on March 29, 2009, Beckoneko said…
Thanks! It is ok if it takes a while, it will take me some time to get to all the drawings. Lots to do, and I have course work to finish before I get to that as well. If you happen to have other pictures of yourself lying around your computer or that can be put into the computer, that would be great as well. No rush though, that is the great thing about working for oneself. =)

Hi, this may sound like an odd request, but may I please use your face? Or rather the image of your face, that would be more accurate. If you have more questions about my request, please refer to this discussion:

Hey Chris!
How's life been for you?

What classes are you taking this semester? I really can't wait for college I am SICK and TIRED of High School. Only two more years. (This is what I think to myself almost every Monday) I would either like to get a degree in History, Animal Science or possibly Animal Biotechnology. What kind of degree are you looking into? (I'm assuming that you are in college because your profile says your 20 years old.)

(P.s sorry for all the questions I'm kind of a noisy person.)

I think I really would enjoy your book. Well maybe once you finish it. Then when I see it on the Barnes&Noble best seller list I can say, "hey I messaged that guy on the ning!" So do you have exams this week? I do I've been putting off studing for my Alg. II test. And my history test, and well just about all of them. Except for art because all I have to do is make a clay model and that isn't too difficult. I don't mind the parentheses.
