Thumbs. Up.

Hey, I'm a little "in between" books for reading now. What have you read or are reading right now? Thumbs up or Thumbs middle?

Saw Devil Wears Prada. Awesome. Thumbs up.

Ate too much Hawaiian food this weekend at Shakas in L.A. It's my new addiction... this restaurant just outside L.A. Loving the shaved ice on hot days like we're having. Billion thumbs up!

Hope you have a Thumbs UP kinda day!

I just finished "The Known World" by Edward P. Jones. It is a rich and fulfilling novel about dark and light, power and privilege. The story is about a black family that owns slaves during that period in history.

I also read "Any Bitter Thing" by Monica Wood. That novel was about the lies we live and the lies we live with. The core story is about a priest accused of molesting a child, but that isn't the truth. What is and how it is revealed is interesting.

I'm currently reading "The Hummingbird's Daughter" by Luis Alberto Urrea. I just started, so I can't tell you that much about it.

I got accepted to San Jose State for graduate school. Yay.

I read David Sedaris' "Me Talk Pretty One Day" I thought it was hilarious.

"The Magician's Assistant" by Ann Patchett was a good book too. I liked "Truth and Beauty" better though. "Truth and Beauty" is about friendship. I love books about friendship.

That's it.

Can't wait to see the "The Devil Wears Prada" I love me some Meryl Streep.

I hope you are well Fred. I think of you often, and miss you always.

I'm reading Black Boy, and it is MY NEW FAVORITE BOOK. Me and Richard Wright are Uncle and nephew and what not. BUT HE IS SO BAD.

Read Kite runner for school. I liked it. i like reading books about different cultures. I also think that in a time where so many people are against people from Afghanistan and the middle east, it humanizes them to people who think all they do is play with uranium all day.

MUSICALLY. CAN WE TALK ABOUT NICOLE BAILEY RAE? LOVE HER SO MUCH. She is just enchanting. i want to sit in her room and sniff her pillows. (LOL SO insane.)
