Haha, it's not much a matter of saving money, it's MAKING it. I don't have a regular paycheck, I get paid really irregularly so when I DO end up with money it tends to go to groceries/cigs/bills and shit. And oils, I doubt I'll be able to get ahold of for a while anyway. I don't drive, and I live in kind of a small town so I basically hope I end up at a place that has the shit I need and that I happen to have the money to get it at the time. Nothing in my life is ever planned or decided haha. I just go with shit and end up places.
Well, To Kill a Mockingbird is an EXCELLENT book and I believe it should be in everyone's collection. I'm kind of glad that it's required reading for a lot of schools (or at least it was.) I also have a copy and have read it a multitude of times and look forward to the day that my son will take up an interest in reading so he can dive into my collection.
Devlin is in a public school, unfortunately. There is only 1 Montessori in my area with a waiting list a mile long. He was supposed to go to a really bad school but thanks to the SBX5-4 law ("no child left behind")I was able to get him a 5 year transfer to a far better school (a distinguished school with really good scores) in a neighboring town. There was also the option of putting him into a co-op but I am a single parent with little to no help so I really don't have the time to put into working at a co-op to subsidize the cost while going to school myself and working part time.
In the Year 2525 was a song that my sci-fi nut dad and I sort of bonded over. We looked up different covers of it and played all versions while discussing the concepts over wine. It will always be a favorite. Especially fun since there are a lot of bands that I like that cover it that I could introduce to my pops. :)
Heh, moved our chatter away from the thread so that it doesn't become a complete threadjacking.
Anyhoo, I haven't read Tolkien either but I think I will be giving it a try at some point (esp. considering the circumstances and the Hobbit movie coming out soon.) I LOVE urban fantasy but high fantasy tends to get a little dry, imo.
I think that when you are truly eclectic books that you didn't like need to be revisited at another time. I noticed that I am all over the map with music, films, books, and my creative endeavors and a lot of what drives me in a certain direction lies within the emotional and environmental factors playing into my life in that moment.

Ever read "Mathematians read the Newspaper". Great book. You should check it out. It''s all bout statistics.
I tried getting into the rest of the Dune Series, but got distracted. I have the next 3, but am in a different series right now, so it'll have to wait. I never got into Tolkien. I know I should. I have the trilogy and the Hobbit. But I tried reading the Hobbit in 9th grade and got annoyed that 60 pages in he was still talking about the forest. Maybe now that I'molder and read more, I'll give it shot
I'm so new..you would be chuckling at me over here while I try to navigate.;) I feel quite silly for asking this question, as it is probably quite obvious...where and how else do I comment back to you other than by clicking the comment back link? ;)
Hi :D It took me a while to figure out everything on the site :) Yes I took the bands out after about three weeks. I then went to some beads, only a few though. I also wrapped a few strands of wool around some of my locks.Unfortunately I had placed the bands in before finding this awesome website. Thank you for commenting on my photos!!! It makes me happy that people are taking the time to comment. :)
