fangtastic book giveaways this gal is giving away the first and second season of blood ties tv show along with some other books. awesome check it out here

man I am so glad October is almost over. Next month had to be better I hope. I am so tired of stuff going wonky. This has been the worst October ever. It used to be my favorite month. Next month New Moon comes out. They are also showing Twilight again for 5 bucks. What a steal. I went and saw the midnight showing of twilight two years ago(has it been that long? my timing might be off) Newho. The sounds was all wonky and the picture was too dark. I hope it is better this time.
here are pics of my malabrigo fingerless mittens they have kept my hands snug and toasty heres the pattern just have to finish my other thumb and weave in the ends and all done.

my drabble on neil gaiman's books

Posted by vickie | 10:10 PM | 2 comments »

I love to read Neil Gaiman's books. They are well versed and extremely entertaining to read. Sometimes when I am reading them I feel like I am hiking up a very tall mountain. This is because I am dyslexic. Sometimes reading a book is like butting my head up against a rock because I feel like there is this giant barrier in front of me I cant break through. I started reading American Gods and the prose took so long to read because once again the wall was there and I just wanted to cry. I really wanted to finish.

listening to this because im reading twilight and hadnt had a chance to listen to the new soundtrack

Meet me on the Equinox
Meet me half way
When the sun is perched at it's highest peek
In the middle of the day

Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
As we walk in the dimming light
Or darling understand

That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything ends

Meet me on your best behavior
Meet me at your worst
For there will be no stone unturned
Or bubble left to burst

Let me lay beside you, Darling
Let me be your man
And let our bodies intertwine
But always understand

That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything, everything ends

A window
An opened tomb
The sun crawls
Across your bedroom
A halo
A waiting room
Your last breaths
Moving through you

As everything, everything ends
As everything, everything ends
As everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything ends

Meet me on the Equinox
Meet me half way
When the sun is perched at it's highest peek
In the middle of the day

Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
As we walk in the dimming light
Or darling understand

That everything, everything ends
