is that it sometimes takes me a long time to decide that I'm actually gonna read them. See... I "splurged" and got myself the next two books in that David Drake series I've been reading on, "The Lord of the Isles". They've been sitting up on my book shelf with the rest of the series for about a month now. Maybe longer. And I just can't make myself read them right now. I mean, when I purchased them I wanted to read them really bad. I'd been holding off on buying them until the prices came down on the used ones. So, I've been waiting to read the next one in line for a couple of years. And I have enjoyed the other books in the series. But still, I can't make myself pick one of them up and get started on it. I was wondering to myself, why do I do that? I once bought a book and kept it for over a year before I read it. Now that I think about it, I have a Katherine Kurtz book on my shelf with all the other Deryni books that I've had for about 3 years now and I still haven't read it. I've picked it up a few times and thumbed through it, but I just can't make myself read it. Maybe cause I subconsciously know that it's the very last book in that series and that there won't ever be another one; so I don't want it to end. I picked up my very first Deryni book many years ago. They were already old by then. (can't be helped, I went many years without sitting down and reading a book. Heck, I went many years without being able to purchase books and without the wherewithal to get to the public library, so... I missed a lot of stuff) Anyway... the first few she wrote were kinda juvenile and I picked them up at the used book store as a "light" read. Actually, the book store was kinda small back then and didn't have much in the way of sci-fi/fantasy at the time, but I digress... As she went along with the story, the characters became more full-fleshed, the plots more convoluted, more thought provoking. As far as I know she hasn't written another in the series and I don't know if she plans to. It seems to me that she's gone just about as far with this story as she can. So... maybe I'm simply holding on to this book, knowing it's the last. If I don't read it, it won't ever be over??? Silly, huh?
Before I sign off for the evening, here's another noteworthy "hunky" man:
Phenomenal actor. Pretty much anything he puts his name on turns to pure gold. So many of his movies become instant classics. "Independence Day", "Men in Black", so many fine movies for one artist to put his name on... And tho I'm not a big rap/hip hop fan, I confess that I like much of his work as a musician, too. Like "Getting Jiggy Wit It", and "Switch", and "Wild Wild West"... The man is just brilliant. Who would have thought all those years ago when he was rhyming and rapping and acting in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, that he would turn into a box-office legend. HA! His current film is "I Am Legend". How do you like that? And he is.
He's also mighty fine to look at. He has the most engaging smile. You can't help but smile with him. I also like that slightly acerbic sense of humor that can suddenly shift into the realm of silliness, without a warning. He's got a body that just won't quit; and that mocha complexion is so smooth and sexy. You've also got to respect his business acumen and his dedication to his family. Doesn't matter if your white, black, brown, red, or yellow... if you're a woman, and you're not gay, you have got to appreciate what Will Smith has to offer.
So, that's about it for now. Think I may go turn in for the night. See ya later.
