2018 Reading List

2018 lasted a fucking century. It just went on and on forever. it probably didn't help that it was my second year in a row taking less than 10 days off work (besides federal holiday closures). This is going to change in 2019. It has to because I have a new job and I have time off days that are like, about 3 weeks, that are use it or lose it.  I think my work hours are going to be longer too, so who knows what my 2019 reading list is going to look like, but my 2018 reading list is done.

I read
  • 24 books
  • 2,303 fic at about 20 million (ish) words
    • Per my comparison shorthand I use, that's 42.6 reads of the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy (473k words)
I read 6 more books and a million more words of fic than I did in 2017. I don't even know how.

Mega korean pop idol 비(rain) is comming to Madison Square Garden. Mum read it in a newspaper, and asked me if we should buy tickets to support the korean celeb, even if his music is total crap,which it is, in my opinion. Yeah, I listen to pop, but even if I fangirl the guys in certain bands, I do have standards. I can name possibly 5 pop songs that I'd freely admit to loving, and all 5 of them are songs that could be covered by a decent rock band, no problem. And they have to sound awesome. I don't like the standard pop crap, especially songs that sound like every other.
I haven't heard much 비, but of the songs I have heard, I'd label him under standard pop. Kinda like a male BoA. *shudders*

Anyways, I explained that there was no need to dich out money on medicore musicians, there are plenty of US fans. Apparently, I went a bit too indepth on my explanation on why he really isn't worth it, and she started looking at me strangely.
Hm.
I wonder if I can use her strong nationalism if/when Seo Taiji ever comes to the US.




*I just orgasmed over a pair of boots. Holy shit are those things awesome. Why can't I live in fucking europe? It's away from Bush, they are visited by awesome rock bands far more frequently than the US, they have the better bands there, and they have awesome knee high boots with a platform of about a foot. With buckles. Oh gods the buckles. There are like 20 of them and damn they're hot. Me wantssssss.

I had a reaction of YAY! SNOW!!!!! this morning. For some reason, when things faqll from the sky, I tend to get pretty happy. I wonder what my reaction will be when it starts raining fire and brimstone.
Anyway, I find it pretty funny that I've found a song in 3 different languages. I'm not too sure whether the origional's the english version or the chinese one, but I do happen to like the korean one the best. It's singable, understandable, and it just sounds better.
I can't believe how bad the english is in the english version.

Ok. Holy Fuck.


I
Finished
My
NaNo


I finished it with about a thousand words to spare. And while the story isn't done, I can now complete it at my own pace, and not loose sleep over it.

I'm feeling a bit proud of myself about now, I think I'm going to go and sleep for a couple thousand hours.

Right about now.

Does Jay of the TRAX listen to Papa Roach?
I knew when I listened to It's a MONSTER that I'd heard a phrase in the song before, and today, I finally caught it in Dead Cell off the Queen of the Damned album.
It's a very random song.
And "What is your target, what is your reason" isn't a phrase you come across often.
And there's another little line that's kinda similar.

Sat through Titanic again and played spot the Ioan Gruffudd.
It had been so long since I saw the movie I didn't realize he was in for more than two minutes of it.
I gotta sit down to watch Black Hawk Down again to find Ioan in that one. :D
If Ioan had bigger role in the Titanic, it never would have sunk. Hornblower would never have let a ship sink.

I'm trying my hardest not to get distracted and write like my life depends on it. I've got less than a week left to Nano, and I HAVE TO FINISH.

It's hard.
