Thank you *preens*

I thought I was being remarkably well-behaved! How is Nisi-life today?

Shove them out the door if you haven't already. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Ive been doing the unthinkable and highlighting passages. As soon as you're caught up or finished I'll share.

You did earn the star, however pristine (or not) just because you were nice to them. :)

Life is ok. I'm on a recent love affair with my Wii balance board again, so am earning plenty of sore muscles and screaming joints, but hope it pays off in smaller, firmer whatevers in the weeks to come. :) It wears me out and energizes me at the same time, because the Wii things are just plain fun.

do you use a highlighter pen or a sharpie? the latter shows up better on your screen...

As long as your brains stays scarily big I say go for it!

My thoughts so far are it is really well written. I have not found a single incident that jars with my store of mytho lore, and he highlights the predestination element very very well. I can't wait to read it all - but I will have to because more visitors just arrived!!!!

BBL...

well, I finished my chapter. Turns out I had like 3 pages to go only, maybe 4. Funny, when one is tired even so little as a paragraph seems like a mission to get through...

Morning/ Afternoon all - taught my last Sunday School class, ran some errands and now I'm home. I need to do some cleaning and start working on my dress for my Jane Austen weekend in Aug. I'm going to spend some time catching up. So I'll see you soon.
It's hot and humid here - what's your weather like?

your last? Why is that if I may ask?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 15, 2012, 9:32:22 AM PDT
My parents had some friends whose little (though ferocious) was called Fenrir - I always picture him...

Guests left, now going to gobble down my shrimp sandwich, set dough for tomorrow's lunchbox bread, then get back to Bifrost...

Just finished. Whet a trip! So many echoes of JRRT, it's almost like the chicken or the egg question. Will definitely need time to digest this one.

Hm. Perhaps the children can give themselves a bath tonight? And who really needs lunchboxes tomorrow anyway?

Edited to make the `into a ?

All well except SEP is destroying my family time by making me want to read books.

@SEP - when are you posting your review?

The book looks very very good from the 10% I have read - tight and elegant writing, very in keeping with the sparse prose of Norse texts. Even so he manages to convey feeling and motives that fit really well with my background knowledge of the topic - "humanising" the Norse pantheon in a very interesting way.

I was just teaching a 5 week class on Surviving the Hunger Games - I was teaching at the church where I work but now I can go back to my own church - since I volunteer on the multi-media team and had to have someone cover for me there

yesterday when I was buying a new stylus I found out that I actually had a GC balance so I'm going to pick up a copy of Gone Girl - since I'm hearing so many good things about it.
