My own life ennui
In an attempt to take my mind off my upcoming job interview, I decided to do a condensed (and slightly changed) version of an 'about me' list that I discovered on ennuiherself. I liked the list, and with my geeky self, I thought of Joey on Dawson's Creek when she asked Pacey "What's with the life ennui?" when he was sort of sulking and self-debating. At any rate, here's my version:

What I was doing five years ago?
2000 (in my twenties): In school, wondering what the hell I was going to do once I graduated. Drifting, trying to write, write, write. Wishing I could do it all over.


What I was doing one year ago?
2004 (still twenty something): Beginning my novel, thinking about getting a masters in creative writing. Joined a writing group and listened to horror stories about query letters and rejection letters.


5 snacks I enjoy:
Doritoes

Double Stuff Oreos

Krunchers

Popcorn

Fruit


5 books I want to read:
"The Da Vinci Code" (Dan Brown)

"Moby Dick" (Herman Melville)

"Velocity" (Dean Koontz)

Pay off my debts, my mom's debts, my sisters debts

    I feel you on the Oreos, I'm trying to cut back myself. I'm on a watermelon kick as of right now.

    I have wanted to go to Japan my whole life. I even took Japanese when I was in high school.

    Sometimes I feel like I am the queen of laziness. I think I just want to do so many things at once, that I just give up and lay there. Ha ha.

    I love CSI. I saw the character that plays Warrick this past Wednesday at a concert. He looks the same in person. The show Lost is also one of my favs.

    Do you have a thing for vampires? I noticed that you like Hellsing, BtVS, and that book about marrying one. I can't say I blame you.

    Sorry this was so long. =0/

    Yep, big thing for vampires. It all started with Buffy the Vampire, where it grew into an obsession, then a way of life, practically. It consumed me.

    The Da Vinci Code is a good read & poses some interesting questions. I'd recomend it. In my opinion, however, Dan Brown is not the best writer...his style seems a bit elementary or like he's trying to "dumb it down". It's still a fun read.

    Hate to say tis but skip Moby Dick. It is a great story but a lousy book. Or alternativly, read it as it was written, as a seriel, one chapter a week. then maybe it won't be so disjointed. sigh.

    I'm with exmi. It's a really dry read...by the way, thanks for the nice comment on my 100 list! :)

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog and keeping the list going!

    I highly recommend Memoirs of a Geisha. I considered that as a potential career for several weeks after reading. (J/K) :)
