the best friends you’ll never have

Archive for January, 2008

I’ve been reading a lot of LS recently, and I have to say, I really like Karen. I thought she was pretty annoying before I started reading LS, mostly because I found Ben Brewer/Let’s All Come In tiresome. I like Karen a lot now though, and feel that a lot of people in LS treat [...]

As some of you probably already know, Hodges Soileau worked from models. This may be hard to believe, especially when you’re looking at covers which feature Jessi or small children, but it’s true. This may explain why Dawn never seemed to have long, white-blond hair that hung down all the way to her waist. It [...]

So a new community just got started on livejournal: BSC Snark. In all honesty, I’m actually not that big on snark. A little snark here and there is fine, but I actually adore these books. Snark with love, perhaps, is the flavor of snark I go for. But anyway, I was reading a post about [...]

I have developed a head cold and my sd card reader has not arrived with my suitcase yet. My plans for the next couple of posts I want to do involve photographs, which requires a way to transfer said photos to my computer. Boo and bullfrogs! I just discovered the BSC Scrapbook at uandme4bsc and [...]

I am back from Russia and what the hell? It is 60 degrees fahrenheit here. Not proper January weather. I thought that posting didn’t work… but now I see it did. I thought of many things to post about in this new year… but am too tired right now to post anything more than this [...]
