Book Review 5: Suck it Up by Brian Meehl

I knew this was about vampires, and while I’m really into that since Buffy, Twilight, and True Blood now, I’m very skeptical of all the other vampire books there are.

Ready for fall tv to start

While I’m glad there isn’t much tv going on, because I don’t seem to have much time to watch it, I’m also ready for all my shows to be back. I got five miles in today. Worried if I would because the clouds just looked really scary all night, but we didn’t get anything. Then… Read more »
