 Hello people of earth who read my blog or random people who have stumbled onto this wondering what the hell I'm on about,

My French teacher is a wonderfully eccentric woman and therefore she is obviously hilariously funny. She takes up entire classes telling us how she does not follow fashion but still somehow manages to look stylish and fashionable (her words, not mine but she does pull it off exceptionally well). We were on the topic of bread and then somehow we ended up on the topic of beans, yes beans you saw the title of this post didn't you? My teacher starts telling us this tale of how she and her husband had an argument over the colour of beans, yes the colour of beans now stop interrupting me.Her husband thought beans were orange but she thought that they were white and they looked orange because they came in a red sauce. So when she was using beans in the making of their dinner she drained a couple. She saw they were white and felt triumphant so she went out to the shop. She came back to find that the beans were now orange. Her husband had gone out and bought an orange magic marker and coloured the beans orange. He never admitted to it, he always said that they were orange and she just thought they were white.

I laughed, a lot,

I am a nerd and I love it. I read for at least two hours a day on a busy day. Probably twelve hours on a good day. I work in the computer room at lunch times. I love star wars. I really want to see star trek. I get to love things in whole. Here are some quotes, in picture form, from a fellow nerd:


I am reblogging this from Wil Wheaton, who posted it on his tumblr. I said a thing that Wil Wheaton posted on his tumblr.
(Once, I met Wil Wheaton at the Los Angeles Times Book Fair. He was very nice.)



I am WAY too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.
I actually tend to flail my limbs in enthusiasm.

My enthusiasm leads to happy dances, squealing, screaming, clapping, bouncing, and manic grinning.
I’m pretty damn proud to be enthusiastic about things.

What do you think??

Book Review: Stravaganza: City of Masks

Title: City of Masks
Author: Mary Hoffman
Series: Stravaganza
Position in series: 1st
Released: 2002
Source: Library

Thoughts: This was a brilliant book. The plot was fantastic, it was gripping but slow. That was my one problem with this book. It was great but I couldn't get into it, it wasn't the type of book that had me by the throat and made me read it all in one night. It took me a long time to read it. It took a week.

The descriptions in this book were so vivid, I felt like I really was in Bellezza and I loved the way (MINI SPOILER ALERT) that the author twisted one bit of history and everything changed. No Church of England so no Anglicans and (SPOILER IS OVER)Venice was known as Bellezza and it was great. It was still in the same world in the sense that it wasn't supernatural creatures or it wasn't on another planet but it has a different feel to it. It makes you feel like you're in a completely different world. It makes you feel as though you are in Bellezza.
