Books

So a bit ago I asked you all for book suggestions of what I should read, and I'm still composing that list so I'm not posting that yet. But I decided I would post books that would be on my list had I not read them already that I think y'all should read. Some are great Lit and others are just enjoyable as a story.
  • The Book of Mormon
  • Gone With The Wind
  • The Wizard of oz (whole series)
  • Harry Potter (whole series)
  • Night by Elie Weisel
  • Tom Sawyer
  • Huck Finn
  • Candide
  • Cry the Beloved Country
  • Treasure Island
  • Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging
  • Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (whole series except the 4th which I don't have yet)
  • Little Women
  • Teen Angst
  • Heart of Darkness
  • Metomorphosis

There is more but I'm tired and I can't think right now Probably you've already read a lot of these but I like them.

Something Interesting

So here is somethign fun to do that wastes time also when you're sick.

Go to imdb.com and look up an actor or actress you think you've seen a lot of movies that they've been in. You may be surprised by your results. When I originally did this I thought I had seen more of Will Smiths movies than anyone. But I've only seen 7 of his. He hasn't made that many though so it might be interesting to do it by percentage also.

The highest I got was Adam Sandler with 14 of his movies. weird I know. I got 10 Johnny depp movies and Jim Carey was up there too, which I found weird considering my mom doesn't like him.

I decided though that probably I've seen John Wayne more than anyone because my dad would always watch westerns on Sat mornings, I just don't know all the names of those movies same with James Stewart and maybe Clint Eastwood too.

I bet Tyler will get Sean Connery with the most movies because of James Bond and a lot of Sean's other movies like Darby O'Gill and the Little People and Indiana Jones.

My least that we checked was Will Ferrall with 3. It's weird because I thought I'd seen a lot of his.

Even if you've only seen a movie once you've still seen it so it counts. I think that's why Adam Sandler had so many. Coneheads was one of his movies I don't remember that movie hardly at all just that I saw it on tv or something like that a gazillion years ago.

I thought it was interesting.

bleg

SO I am sick I laid in bed all day with a splitting headache and wishing someone would come with a needle to pop the baloon that I feel is ever expanding inside my head. I think I got sick from the Football game. It was the HOmecoming game so I had to go. We won 21-3 so it was a good game. But I wasn't very into it because I could feel the cold coming honestly I was passively watching it.
After the game I went with Jenessa, her bf Dustin, his sister DeAnne(?), her bf Bowen, and Tom to Los Hermanos (?) some Mexican food place on Center street. It was good but definately not real mexican. Since it was the day after my birthday Dustin snuck off and told the waiter it was my birthday. That was nice. They came and sang and screamed like mexicans and gave me fried ice cream. It had whipped cream and a cherry ontop. I don't like cherries so I asked who wanted it and Tom said he did but then he was like no never mind I don't like cherries. He had never had one before so he had licked it and decided he didn't. and it was funny. Then I made him try the whipped cream to tell me if it was cool whip or real whipped cream. He didn't know so I had to try it and it was cool whip so I liked that and I ate it. Then I let everyone try the ice cream except Jenessa because she would die. At first Tom didn't want to but I made him. and he liked it. It was because there was coconut on the outside fried to the icecream. And he didn't know if he liked ice cream. He decided he did. So I let him eat the most because I don't like coconut. He said he was trying to eat the coconut for me so I thought that was sweet of him. I ate more of the icecream though. It was a good night.
Then we went back to Dustin's where we played catch phrase. Boys against girls. I think the girls dominated or it was a tie I can't remember because I was really tired.
Then I went home.
Before the game I went to the bookstore and bought my self a birthday present. A shirt and undershirt I thought I deserved it.
And on the way to the game I ran into my friend Jared who I met in my summer ward. So that was good.
It was a good weekend minus today because when you are sick you seem to think of all the worst possible things. But I still don't feel better so I called work and left a message saying I might not come in and we'll see. Which is unfortunate because I don't like missing work. It makes me feel like a loser all day.
Um anyways I did create some questions about my life this weekend too especially Sat. So it was good. Nothing that can't be answered or too trivial. Some have depressing answers or complicated ones. But whatev you know. it's ok. I learned some things about myself too. Or just reaffirmed the things I already knew, I suppose so I'll have to figure out what to do about that. SO anyways I need to go back to studying.
