 Wow it's been about two weeks since I last posted.  I have been really busy with work these past two weeks.  Staying late,  have issues connecting at night (to work).  I am reading The Host but I seem to only get a few pages in here and there.   (It's a big book) so it is hard to carry around.  Needless to say I have read a few manga.  That is because they fit in my purse so I can take them anywhere.  And they read fast.  

I will do two seperate posting so as not to bore anyone.  Plus then I can get back to reading The Host.   Now my problem is I have two other books Feast of Fools that I have been waiting for, and the next book in the fairefolk trilogy.  I wish there where more hours in the day.  Some for work,  sleeping, cleaning and then reading.  I need a good 3 or 4 hours added in a day. 

Manga read Black Cat, Inubaka,  and Be with You

Black Cat Volume 12 - In this volume Train starts out as a little kid.  They have gone to meet with Dr. Tearju to see if there is anyway to make him bigger.  I enjoy the black cat series.  Train makes me laugh.   Dr. Tearju looks exactly like Eve.  Kyoko has found another litte cat that is so cute.   I will not give anything else away.  I enjoy all of the characters in this book.  Can you tell I'm a little behind.  Since 14 volumes are out already.

Inubaka vol 7 -  Still love this series.  The dogs are so cute in this.  We have a new employee that starts at Woofles and needless to say everything doesn't seem right with her.   Poor Suguri I kinda feel bad for her.  She realizes that the boss doesn't look at her in any special way except as a klutz and someone he needs to look after.

Be With You -  This is based of a novel.  I loved this story.  It made me want to cry.  The little boy is so cute.  The father tries so hard.  It is amount the Mom who passes away, and says she will return in the rainy season.  When it rains she returns but doesn't remember anything.  The Father and boy tell her about the way they met and some of the things she used to do.  It is a very sweet story.   I would recommend this story to anyone that likes bitter sweet stories.

Yaoi Manga Yakuza in love
Yakuza in Love vol 1 - This story confused me a little with some of the characters and who is working for who.  But the main character makes me laugh. Everyone thinks he is touch, but he has never handled a gun before,  he doesn't know how to fight.  He is the boss backup but yet he can't protect him.   It seems to be only Luck that has gotten him into the position he has now.   Looking forward to reading volume 2 to see what else he is up to.

Well that is all for now.  I will write up the other manga that I read at a later time.

!!!!!!!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!

I hope you have an awesome day!

I promise to update you on our L.A. adventure. I've been so busy since I got home I haven't had time to. I got you a few things at the Expo, too.

GO PENS !!!! (did you see that game last night? Holy cow, was that intense! A tripple overtime win, IN DETROIT! I think I had several strokes.) On to Pittsburgh for game 6. *bites nails*

Oh, and 'Be With You' was so good. The novel really made me cry. Of course, I have both.

Thanks for the Birthday wish. You are the first person to tell me Happy Birtheday. YOU have now made my morning brighter. I had to tell my daughter to wish me a Happy Birthday this morning :) (so that doesn't count since she didn't remember).

Can't wait to hear about the trip. I didn't get any calls about bail. Did you see him or anyone else. That was sweet you picked up some things for me. You didn't have to do that since I know it was a long haul with the airplane and everything.

Didn't even realize the game was on last night until I heard about it this morning. One of the guys stayed up to watch it. YEAH you where home to see it. I am glad they won last night :D

After I got done reading Be With You manga I was thinking about picking up the novel but since I know the manga made me tear up I'm not sure I want to read the novel and really cry. Is it in English?

Did you pickup your copy of Feast of fools? Are you done reading it yet. I couldn't make up mind finish The Host or Start Feast of Fools. So I didn't do either (Been way to busy with work).

Well I will catch up with you this weekend to find out how LA went and if you had fun. Thanks again for the Birthday Wish :D

I hope you had a great day!

L.A. was great. I didn't get as much stuff as last year but that's because I had to pay to ship it home. I don't think they had as much this year either. I suppose it's the economy. What I did get was pretty good stuff. The boxes have not arrived yet and I want them! I barely remember what I put in them. I got to meet Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy) and I told her I loved her. I also met Carolyn Hennesey (Pandora Gets Jealous) and I gushed about how much I loved the book. They were both really nice. We saw Brooke Shields, and she looks AMAZING in person!

Alas, no Garrett sightings :(

Oh well.

The Be With You novel is in english. I read it before I read the manga.

As for that game, lets just say, I lost my voice. That's what happens when you scream for 5 hours straight. I never gave up hope. There were only 33 seconds left in the game when we scored and tied it. That last minute I was yelling, "fight!! fight!! Keep fighting!!", and they listened. They had the Cup out already. They were ready to give it to Detroit. They probably had the t-shirts and hats out on the bench. I bet they even uncorked the champaigne!! Not so fast, buddies!! Not when the Pens are in the house! We fought like heroes. That was one of the best hockey games I have ever watched. No matter what happens, they gave me something to be proud of. We go back to Pittsburgh for game 6, so hopefully we can carry over the momentum and take it to 7 on Saturday. Unfortunately, the Pens are very beat up and have a lot of injuries. But we also have heart. And a kick ass goal tender - Fleury saved the day. Believe!
