Been tagged with love


I was graciously tagged by Rose. thank you thank you thank you. It is so nice to be linked to someone so gracious, such a light in this universe. Thank you.

So,I must nominate:
papadick - around whom I lurk and read almost daily, although you don't know it.
creative soup - I don't know a thing about fashion, but I am very intreigued by the designs shown in a very straightforward manner.
unclejay - although I don't know if it counts as a blog... but he is insightful and makes me laugh
Jimmy Cheng - who was our photographer at the wedding and captured us well. He has a view that really captures personalities more than bodies.

But, being an anti-social person, I guess, that's all I got. I read other sites and hover around, but none that I wish to reveal!

Spellman Files: Lisa Lutz

Found a great book:
The Spellman Files

It's about a crazy family that is in the personal surveillance business. All of them. Mom, Dad, sister, crazy uncle and young daughter. Only the perfect brother escapes. It's a bit roller coaster - psychoanalysis that you just can't get from Spencer.

I read for escapism, with a little fun, suspense, mystery and excitement thrown in and this fits the bill. I don't read violence or sappy romance. From the first non-chapter, this book pulled me in... this is a bit disjointed which greatly appeals to the ADD-side of my personality. It moves right along from one close encounter to another with just enough breathing room in between. It's a fun ride.

Two thumbs up - it's a fun read. In fact, when I finished it, I read the three pages of "thank yous" and, frankly, thought, at the subject of the promised follow-up novel - "I'm in."
