Nostalgia

I bought a book for $25 last night. It was a children's book that I read repeatedly as a kid, called Flood Friday. It's been double the price, and I decided to get it. I look forward to reading it again. Of course, there's the chance it won't mean the same, like that ghost kids book I got a couple of summers ago. Then again, the best friends book was just as good.


And since I was too tired to write but had to stay up because the boy was out and the dh wasn't home to wait up for him, I played on Facebook. I found two of my elementary school crushes, and a couple of people who went to Catholic school with me. I want to approach them, but it's been so long, I don't know how weird it would be. I don't really keep in contact with those folks, and wonder if there's really a good way to get started again, you know? Have you reconnected with people from your past, out of the blue? Has someone come to you?

I'm guest blogging at I Do Not Want to Wait, I Want the Book Now. Was very lonely yesterday :( One of my buddies pointed out at neither blog was my name in the title, or anywhere other than the book cover. Hmmm, kinda defeats the purpose of promotion, yeah?

I'm terribly behind on TV. Watched Heroes and Lost with only one eye open. Tivo close to exploding again.....

My favorite book as a kid was Lad: A Dog by Albert Payson Terhune and I lost track of how many times I read it. I found it in the bookstore a few years back, re-read it and it held up great.

I've heard of that book, Kelly! I just can't imagine it being your favorite book (JUST kidding! Can't wait till you get your pup!)

This book that I ordered was old when I read it, I think, but I checked it out a couple of times a month. I liked disaster stuff even then :)

My favorite books were a series called The Happy Hollisters. I'd get 2 in the mail each month and then go hibernate while I read them. I remember so clearly teh day they ran out of new titles so they sent Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates instead.

When I look back at them now, I can see that there were a lot of things that were not PC, but I loved the family.

2 a month! That's quite the output! I'll have to look into them!
