You sit there in your heartache Waiting on some beautiful boy To save you from your old ways  
Woohoo! It's Friday! I am leaving for Moses Lake tonight (unless the pass is unbearable), so I will not be online until Sunday night or Monday afternoon. So if I don't comment, I still love you, but am seeing the fam. I bought Pirates of the Carribean 2 off iTunes, so I will have something to enjoy in the backseat. Especially when it is too dark to read. I want to finish Hannibal Rising, so I can go join in some discussions with other Lecterphiles.

I adore Wonderboys! :)

Oh, you read Hannibal rising? Is it good?
I definitley want to read it, too. Although I know it can't be as good as Red Dragon cause it's not about Will Graham. ;)
Allee: ednortonlady_lyca on December 29th, 2006 10:55 pm (UTC)
Wonderboys is my most favorite movie of all time! :D

And yes, it is really good. And LOL, I think the reason I like the movie Red Dragon better than book is because I can gaze upon Ed Norton and Ralph Fiennes LOL! But I think Hannibal is my favorite book.
polaris_86: edward; norton; red dragonpolaris_86 on December 30th, 2006 03:48 pm (UTC)
I've to admit that I only read "Red Dragon" so far and that because I loved Edward orton as Will Graham and wanted to know more about this character.

But I heard a lot of good things about Hannibal rising, so I'm veeery interested in it. ^^

BTW: Ralph is an awesome dragon. *sigh*

Susan Surandon is pretty awesome. I can't spell.
Allee: brandobookslady_lyca on December 30th, 2006 07:19 am (UTC)
Eh, who needs spelling? XP And Susan Sarandon is one of those women who is consistently gorgeous.
candichristine on December 30th, 2006 08:45 am (UTC)
Agreed. Stepmom and Banger Sisters = Love.
