Happenings, The Demon Lexicon, Gakuen Prince, Pig Bride, The presidents time and Dark Walker

Well here we are at the end of December and I made a post in October and November. Maybe if I shoot for once a month next year I will get 2009 done (Smiling).

I hope everyone has had a nice Christmas (or Holiday whatever you may do). Just waiting for New Years. Where I live it is really cold and we just got lots of snow. Everyone is already saying they don't want anymore and the season is only starting. Hoping that by the weekend it will be warmer. :)

Since my last post at work we where suppose to go live and it was pushed back. At least that was on good thing. Now they will go live in January.

Also I had to make some doctor's appointments. (Yes my sister made me). I hadn't been to the ladies doctor in awhile and since my sister had gone and her test results showed she had a little particles that they wanted to check out. (which luckily they removed and it was not cancerous). She wanted me to go. I am fine that way but they realized I had High Blood Pressure. So I had to make a doctors appointment. Yes this all happened about the 2nd week of December so I was doing the test rounds. Blood work, mammogram, they wanted to check my heart. So it was very busy and stressful, just trying to get ready for Christmas and add the doctors appointments in. So I am good except I have High Blood Pressure, and an inactive Thyroid. So they have put me on medication. Now I am very sleepy at night. (My eyes don't want to stay opened past 10:00pm). I have to go back in 6 weeks for more blood work, the doctor wants to see that the medicine is working and that my Thyroid I guess is now doing what it is suppose to and check the my blood pressure is down to where it should be. As I say these are all minor things lots of people have these things. I am just getting used to taking medicine. Other then the normal pills for headache or colds I don't normally take medicine.

Now that I am done boring you with my health, I am going to try and finish up July of last year. Yeah. Then at least I only have half the year to go. (Shh don't remind me I still have all of 2010) :D

Books - The Demon's Lexicon
The Demon's Lexicon - I thought this book was okay.   It took me sometime to get into it but once I did I was enjoying reading it.   I really couldn't relate to Nick he seemed to always be angry and didn't seem to care about anyone but his brother Alan. It was like he couldn't relate to other people. 
What I did like about the book is the twists in it.  Others may of seen them coming but I didn't so it surprised me when they where reveled.  (I try not to give spoilers so others can enjoy it). My favorite character in the book was Jamie the teen boy that got marked by the demon. I liked his character and how he reacted, and some of his questions and responses made me smile.

Manga - Gakuen Prince and Pig Bride

Gakuen Prince vol 2 - There is something about this series it's racer then some of the manga I am used to.  At first I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but the more I read it the more I want to know if Risa and Azusa will end up really liking each other.  Sometimes I really do not like the way Azusa treats Risa. Plus I want to know what Akamaru is up to.  In this volume it looks like the school is not believing that Risa and Azusa are a couple. There is a mock wedding ceremony that Azusa is trying to convince Risa to do.  Will they go through with the mock wedding ceremony.

Pig Bride Vol 1 - This is a different kind of story.  Si_joon was lost in the mountains when he was younger and was rescued by a girl that wears a pig mask.  While he is there he is told that he must marry the girl.  Years later when he is high school he keeps dreaming about the pig girl.  Wondering if she was real or not. Is she just a dream or is she real.  I haven't read volume 2 yet.  (I have to find it in my room somewhere). But I did like this first volume and wonder why she keeps wearing the mask.  I want to know what she looks like without the mask.

Yaoi - The Presidents Time
The Presidents Time - This story made me smile and laugh.  This is about Mutsuki the President and CEO of a corporations.  His father's dying wish is for Mutsuki to become an Evil President.  But Mutsuki is not the type to be able to do evil things.  He tries to do some things like ringing someone's door and running but he can not bring himself to push the button, he also tries to cross the street when it is a read light, and draw on posters hanging up.  Can Mutsuki become an Evil President. Maybe since he has met Makoto he will be able to do something evil and be the top.  Or maybe not you would have to read to find out.
I love this author's chibi characters.   They always make me smile when I see them.

Yaoi Novel - Dark Walker

Dark Walker - This was an okay Yaoi novel. I have like others better then this one but I still like reading it. This book is about Dark Walkers they are humans that can be awake in there dreams. They are in another area where Demons exist and they try to devour the human. Dark Walkers can do different things while in their dreams. Yuki is a Dark Walker that has his eye on Orihara. Yuki was mainly living in his dreams until he meet Orihara in one. Now he has come back to the human world to be with Orihara. Yuki looks out for Orihara in the dream world. Parts this story made me smile with how Yuki didn't know much about electronics and how to react to people he keeps smiling at everyone. So Orihara is teaching him not to be to friendly and about the electronic gadgets while Yuki is teaching Orihara about the being a dark walker.

Movies Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Get Smart
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Okay I know what you are all thinking but I do enjoy this movie.  It is one that makes me smile.  Especially when Paul Reuben (Pee Wee Herman you may know him as) is dying.  He just cracks me up.

Get Smart - It was better then I thought it was going to be.  I did enjoy watching it.

So that is all for now.  I realize by trying to add pictures it is so much more time consuming they never want to work.  Literally 2 and 1/2 hours later and I just got done fixing everything and it was still messed up.  Sigh.  Pretty bad when I have to go do my daughter for help.  Future reference Insert picture and Use Direct link not the html or Image.  Once I did that done in 5 minutes.

If I don't post before New Years I hope everyone stays safe and have fun.
