Thank you so much to everyone that played at guessing my birthday present with me. I'm a little late getting back with everyone to tell what it was because I've been playing with it like crazy! That and my internet seems to be a little iffy lately.
Friday morning I went out with my Granny for breakfast... poor woman. I say this because I'm super sensitive to caffeine and yet I come from a family of coffee drinkers. Lol the waitress just kept filling my cup and I kept drinking it all. I began to start acting a little drunk after 3 hours of downing cup after cup of coffee. And being very talkative! I have to stop for intervals because I kept getting texts from everyone that has my phone number telling my Happy Birthday and I was surprised that my Aunt told me Happy Birthday because her birthday was Thursday and we got into it a bit. I had texted her to tell her happy birthday and he texted me back asking what church I'm going to and I of course am not going to any church and I don't feel that this is something to be ashamed of. However she proceeded to text me about what trash I was for not going to church and it was so bad that I broke down and cried and my boyfriend couldn't even cheer me up with having me guess the birthday present. Oh... and he suggested I tell her that he wouldn't allow me to go to church because of a pact he made with the devil. Lol But, at the very least I try to respect her religious beliefs even if she refuses to respect mine. So, it was a surprise that she texted me the next day to tell me happy birthday. I just texted back 'thanks' and left it at that. And I told on her to my Granny (her mom lol) and she said that it was weird of my Aunt to act that way because she isn't normally like that. I don't know what was going on, but it was frustrating to deal with for sure!
Then it poured down rain while I was digging in my Granny's trunk for clothes (she is always going to back sales and has tons of stuff in her trunk when I see her. I got some cute pants and a pair of Nike shoes!) My boyfriend started to get antsy then so as soon as the rain let up we parted ways.
I started jumping up and down as soon as I saw the wrapped package. It was the perfect size for what I had guessed it to be. I tore open the paper and it was a NOOK! The new one too... the new touch screen one. So this is why he has been harping on me about getting a library card even though the local library is under construction right now. Lol
I have read one short story on there already and I'm reading another book right now. It is weird, but I can't put it down. It takes place in St. Louis (the city I live in) and it's about a hooker that is getting too old for the trade and she meets a cop while out on the town and so far they seem really into each other. That's part of the reason I'm hooked right now. The idea of total opposites into each other interests me. And then because it takes place in my city there is this added element of actually feeling like I'm in the story. I know where these places are! Although it was weird because it was talking about them going to the movies and like it was in the city, but the portion of the city it takes place in doesn't have a movie theater. We have to go to the county... so I'm wondering if they are supposed to have gone there. See, I'm getting a little too wrapped up in this. Lol
I have bought 3 of the 99 cent books... mostly I'm getting freebies. There are a few freebie books that are duds though, and I can't figure out how to delete them. Grrrr.
If anyone has one and can give me tips that would be cool.
