Well the job seems to be going okay for now. The verdict is still out. The first day I felt like such an airhead. What normally takes them 15 minutes to do took me 4 hours. But by then end of this past week I got it down to less the 2 hours and that was with errors. I know I will get get it eventually but I guess till being new and learning it will take another week or two. The change has already come I was suppose to be Second shift but the guy filling in and learning decided he liked second shift so now I will be on first shift. That makes me happier but the days will end up being Tuesday thru Saturday. But as I have said before 6 months you can do anything. Plus since I am still in training it could be another week or two before I start that schedule.

With this post I think I have now caught up with everything I read in 2008. I realized I never posted about reading Breaking Dawn since I didn't want to give spoilers.

Books - Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn - Loved this book. I read it within 2 days, I couldn't put it down. This is a huge book. I am sad that this was the end of the series. Bella did some growing up in this book. I was happy that she had 3 seperate stories in this and one covered Jacob. Yes I was a big Bella and Edward fan but I love Jacob and I was glad he got his story.

Manga - Gakuen Alice and Love Com
Gakuen Alice vol 4 - Love this series. It is so cute. This volume had me laughing. **Spoilers** Poor Mikan with Natsume in this volume. In one way we see another side of Natsume that he does look out for his friends in another way we see him teasing poor Mikan. This volume has them having the school festival all of the different division in the school have to do something. Mikan group comes up with a really neat maze you have to go through, the Prez group has a haunted house and Hotaru makes a really cook machine for hers (Luca is so cute walking through the Haunted house with a bunny). Also in this volume you find out a little more about Hotaru family. If you like Manga and want something cute and fun to read I suggest this series.

Love Com vol 7 - I loved this volume. It had me smiling the whole time. Risa and Otani are finally making progress. Risa is about to give up on Otani she is tired of trying, and tells Otani that she just want to be friends. Otani tells her not to give up yet. In this volume there is a basketball game, karoke night, and Risa birthday. All of these events has something in them that made me smile. Really enjoyed this volume. If you want to know if Risa and Otani stay just friends or become a little more you will have to read to find out.

Yaoi Manga/Novels Kiss Blue, Stolen Heart and Sleeping with money

Kiss Blue - I liked this volume. Enjoying the slow pace of one friend liking the other, and him trying to deal with his feelings and trying to keep the way things always where. Have to wait for the next volume to find out if they stay friends, drift apart or become more.

Stolen Heart - Liked this volume it was making me laugh how the young Master was acting. He was really spoiled, but the way he pouted and was always bored made me laugh.

Sleeping with Money - ** spoiler alert ** Enjoyed reading this. I didn't want to put it down. I really liked the main characters in this. Tatsurou the Yakuza member and Sagami the businessman. Tatsurou is part of the Yakuza that tries to collect money but it doesn't seem like he can always get the money out of people. Plus he doesn't really like to hurt anyone it seems. He can't seem to get the money off one of the companies so ends up needing to get the money a different way to give to his boss. Enters Sagami a buy from his pas...more Enjoyed reading this.

Enters Sagami a buy from his past that just happens to have the money and is willing to loan it to him for a price. I like how Tatsurou gradually changes his ways and wants to make his life better, and I enjoyed the relationship between Sagami and him.

Movies Rocky Horror Picture Show
One of my daughters friend hadn't seen this movie yet so she wanted to watch it to see why they kept quoting things and what it was about. I hadn't watched it in a long time so I watched along. I enjoy watching it but at the same time I think how ridiculous the movie is. I love Tim Curry so that is one of the reason I enjoy this movie.

Today is my Grandfathers birthday we went down to see him before the game came on.  He is looking really good for 89.  I just can't believe he is that old already. Time really does go fast. Well that is all for now. I will let you know how the job is going again. Already there is a small pile of other manga/books I have read so I will post again later this week.

I know. I keep waiting for the guy to change his mind. I figured they hired him first so he gets first say on what shift he wants.

But if I stay first shift then I can go to Borders party when City of Glass comes out and have my book signed.
