For sometime now, I've somehow forgotten how to read novels. And after complaining about this for a while, I decided to buy a new book. (which lets face it, I have plenty of books to read at home) Anyhow I spent a whole twelve dollars at Barnes and Noble on a book named Towelhead by Alicia Erian. I was not expecting to delve right into this book immediately, but Sundays are always to boring to do anything more than sleep, eat, fuck or read. (pardon my french) Since I hadn't any interest in doing any of the above, (I wasn't feeling well) I relaxed on my bed and began reading. I wasn't surprised that this book was too good to put down. I knew that it would be based on the first line of the book, which starts off with "My mother's boyfriend got a crush on me, so she sent me to live with Daddy." I wouldn't want to give too much away but, the book is about an overdeveloped thirteen-year old girl sent to live with her Arab father in Texas during Saddam Hussein's invasion into Kuwait. Read it, or see the movie which apparently came out in September of 2008.

Up late. Just thinking about the possibility of time travel. Doesn't help that I just finished watching a totally lame movie about a man you travels back in time just to meet the woman he's suppose to fall in love with. In case you haven't guessed it yet, the movie is Somewhere in Time. I'm really confused about the whole thing. Mostly, not the concept of time travel but the possibility that there is someone in the world not perfect, but perfect for you. This person could be in any time and any place. Would you know if you met this person? Would it seem familiar all at once? What if you met them years ago? Is this just a person you brushed up against in the grocery store? Anyone. What about everyone before and after them? What if you met them while you were with someone you really loved? Not a soul mate but something like that. I'm I babbling? Thinking too much? Are there way too many questions that I can't answer? I'm sure I'd know, I'm sure that I would have known it the moment I saw him, I would have simply said "Oh my gosh there he is." This is way too much for me to handle right now... I guess that's what I get for eating chocolate before going to bed. Dang.
