Mainly True Crime, Serial Killer stuff but also a few novels, fiction like The Flowers In The Attic series, Survivor Stories and stories that explain how people think or tick.
I borrowed a book from my neighbor, titled ‘The Sociopath Next Door’…and yes, she lives next door! But, I digress . .. The scary thing about this book is; I see a lot of Sociopathic traits in my friend, Tra. Tra says terrible things about people! Example, she put on Facebook that she wishes she had aborted her daughter because her daughter accused her of being a racist, and a few other things. She Hates her sister and says she is dead to her; even laughing when bad things happen to her, She also Hates her neighbor as well as her not yet Ex-Husband and wishes them both dead. She believes if she Hates someone, you should too, or at least have nothing to do with them, and you can’t disagree with her much or you will hear her wrath. She also puts a lot of Whoa is me, my life sucks and no one likes me posts on Facebook which is a major sign of a Sociopath. They play into pity. She is one of those people who puts her whole life on Facebook, which, I personally, find ridiculous.
While the book does recommend staying away from people like that, I believe it is also good to just stay aware.
Tra and I do not get together to often and when we do, I pretty much just listen without taking sides.
So, back to the title and question:
What are you reading? And Is it affecting your life?
This morning, I went to a Leàdership Seminar with a couple of the girls from Bible Study. I was so excited to finally be able to wear a dress after over a year! I even wore make-up, which is very rare.
Unfortunately, I was the only one in a dress. At first, I felt a bit overdressed, but, I figured;I am not a teenager anymore so it doesn’t matter. Plus,. I am myself and I was comfortable, so I had fun in it.
Since I don’t know when I will be attending church physically again, I still wish to attend on Zoom and other various websites, but, I wanted to attend this Seminar (and maybe a few more, upcoming) because I really want to lead a study on the book, ‘Boundaries’.
I would like to thank you all for your answers on Yesterdays Post and question if you are or are not taking the Covid Vaccine. It makes me happy when we can be adult and share our personal views without arguments and debates or name calling, etc.
My sister sent me a text of everything she believes the vaccines are made of which includes human tissue or blood and dead animal blood. I am going to make my own decision on this. I am doing my own research. I have an appointment scheduled for my first dose next week, and C. also got an appointment at the same place 15 minutes after mine. We also did the same for the 2nd dose in April.
In other news, I just listened to one of the Dr. Suess books which is being banned. “If I Ran The Zoo.” was actually being read aloud. My question is, “What’s wrong with it?” Sure, he mentions Mosques and Noah’s Ark, but I find nothing offensive, there. Maybe, it’s me but I am going to listen to the others also, that are considered Bad, if I can find them.
I believe we should have had a vote in this. I think most people think we are going overboard.
I am selling the Washer & Dryer that J gave me since they don’t fit. If you know anyone here in Vegas or Henderson, please pass the word. $200. for both and they work fine.
Taking another break from the news, soon. So frustrated with this world. Did you hear about Dr. Suess books being banned because some of his characters could have been considered racist in their appearance?
I am getting so tired of the Bullshit and also seriously concerned for our future.
Slavery cannot even be spoken of.. What’s next? If you were forced to burn your books because of the topics of slavery or race; how would you feel? This is the stuff that happened to the Jews before the Holocaust! We need to try to fight this Idiocy, but how? And, what if they go after our Bible? It’s full of history with wars and slavery.
While this isn’t necessarily about the physical book type items, we can’t let it confuse us. There were Slaves and the Holocaust did happen! Gender is assigned at birth and nothing really changes that. Girls played house with dolls and were taught to be wives and mothers; and boys played with trucks and looked forward to fighting in wars or working in the mud. Boys didn’t care to see dolls in the stores and girls knew trucks and cars were in the Boys Toys section.
We have to hang on to what we know as the truth in our history or history is doomed to repeat itself.
Not really. I could just as well have titled it. ‘Trying To Be A Cat’. I slept from 5:30 or 6 last night, woke up around 2 then back to sleep, reawoke at 5:30,with a Migraine..took an Imatrex, then back to sleep until 9:30 a.m.
Got some Mobile Home Insurance today, since mine has lapsed and its best to have it…just in case.
Also, my Book Santa on Reddit came through in a big way and got me the entire ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ set from my Wishlist. They have other exchanges coming up throughout the year which also sound fun. I highly recomend joining
Figured I would share a laugh since grammar is so important.
It’s been a quiet day with lots of reading. I’ve finished reading Daniel, so I can lead the study tomorrow; plus, am in the process of reading Ann Rule..You Belong To Me; and like, 5 other stories.
I joined the Book Exchange-Secret Santa on Reddit, and it was a bit difficult, again. The girl I got likes Fantasy Fiction and books with LGBT characters and Crystals..none of which I know anything about. Luckily, she likes to go to the Library, so I got creative. I got her:
$15.00 Gift Card to Barnes &Noble Fantasy Fiction book that sounded interesting. A Tote Bag with a Library theme And a Library themed Facemask.
She is in California, so I am sure they still have to wear them.
Thanks for the comments/compliments on my haircut. It’s fun and bouncy. I am waiting to color it until it gets warmer, here.
Yesterday was quiet and a Migraine Day. Later on, I read a book until one in the morning. Today is more lazy, I think. I need to go to the laundromat which I keep putting off; so, instead I just don’t get dressed.
The new list of exchanges are listed on Reddit Secret Santa. They have different exchanges throughout the year. Same rules, but the exchanges are themed. I have signed up for Books and Bookmarks. The Bookmarks one is no minimum, but to receive $20 worth of books would be totally cool!
Have you ever read an erotic portion in a book that made your body react in a way that surprised you?
I am a grown woman and I expect my body’s reaction to soft porn, but this was Not a soft porn book. It is a chapter of a book when two lovers reunite after years of separation.
The book is titled ‘Endless Love’ and it’s a novel by Scott Spencer..copywrite 1979. The book is about a teenager obsessed and when he is banned from seeing his girlfriend for 30 days, he sets fire to her house…not necessarily in retaliation; but, he wanted to save her from the fire and be a hero to the family. There is so much more to this book..placed in a time of sexual awareness and drugs, as well as, family openness.
It resonates with me because I have been in both positions in past relationships. I have been the obsessive one who begged and pleaded for my lover not to leave me and I have also been the one obsessed over to the point of being stalked and having to get away where they couldn’t locate me.
Back to the book: I can’t say whether I do or do not recommend this book, as, it would depend on how much you can take…without crossing the Porn line.
Tazzy, the neighbors black and white cat, has already been adopted! But, it just kills me knowing Princess is in a cage..I don’t care if they call it a Cat Condo. Can you imagine suddenly being pushed out of your house and family to a stranger, then have a physical, before being put in some place in your own room with bars on the doors and people coming by debating on if they want you? Yeah, I know..it’s a bit like a Foster home..but, animals don’t understand and it’s killing me. Seriously, I want to cry for Princess and am praying she gets adopted really soon.
In other news, my BFF called and she has the same ‘Boundaries’ book I keep talking about. She is excited to read it so we can discuss it. Plus, I gave a copy to another friend for Christmas to help her with some issues. This book has been a life-changer for me and has even helped to lessen my Migraines.
I have mentioned before that we are studying ‘Boundaries’ in my Bible Study. It is really giving me new perspectives and understanding in dealing with situations that used to really upset me.
My BFF in Virginia and I both love Jeff Dunham. A few weeks ago, we discovered through one of his videos that he was inviting his viewers to participate in a sing-along on video with him and Achmed. Viewers were invited to submit their videos and Jeff is going to put together a compilation. Well, both BFF and I forgot about this..until today. BFF sent me a text that she and her daughter submitted their video. When I called and asked her for the link, she snapped at me, saying, “I don’t know. M. did it. She’s busy right now. You can look it up.” I could have snapped back; but, I didn’t.
I remembered how she used to be so competitive with me when growing up and realized that she doesn’t want me submitting a video and being in competition with her. For whatever reason, it’s on her.
So, I looked up the information. I was unable to submit a video through my phone and when I called BFF back to ask a question, she apologized for snapping.
I still share this with you to get it out of my system but am proud of myself for not escalating stupid situations anymore.
