Long Story Short
This will be a semi-regular feature here on Life Happens. Basically, it will be my pet peeves with blogs, and bloggers, as well as catching up on personal stuff.
My first peeve is a tiny one…why, oh why do you make you writing in yellow? or something so pale it cannot even be read? I have many blogs in my reader, and I don’t have time to adjust for every weird thing I cannot read. So I deleted your blogs from my reader after a long frustrating time. Sorry!
Next is the blogger who has 19 entries all on the same day. I mark you as all read. Why oh why can’t you schedule them to run over a few days? You remind me of Harriet Klaussner, from Amazon. It just makes me crazy! (maybe I am)
Last for this time, is book trailers…what is up with that? It is a book, not a movie. I like to picture the characters in my head, not what some slick producer thinks they look like. So when I see them, I pass.
On a personal note, I did go to the movies and saw Harry Potter. It was a wonderful conclusion to a great series. It makes me sad but happy at the same time, since it was done so well. (now I am resting up from my outing)
We have been watching a lot of movies at home. Red Riding Hood, Rango, and I spent a weekend watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy. (pretty good, a decade late, don’t you think?)
And on our last trip we listened to our first audio book! It was the perfect length and ended as we pulled up to the house!! Talk about timing.
Enough about me…..what are your pet peeves?
