Book Club




On Friday night I got to go out with my mom and sisters for our book club meeting. Now normally, I'm not a "girls night out" kind of person, I just like being around Craig too much, but if it's my sisters, that's a different story. So we went out to talk about our January book, pretty sad since it's half way through March, it's nearly impossible to coordinate with 4 or 5 people's schedules. So we went out for Sushi, and talked about the mediocre book we read. So I'll address both issues. Sushi: Now I have been told (of course by my sisters and cousins) that sushi grows on you. This was only my second time eating it, and I must say they are correct. The first time I had it, it was so shockingly different than anything else I'd ever eaten, that I had a hard time enjoying it. This time, I loved it! I thought it was so good I probably ate way way more than I should have, but Meghan's right, it's addicting. If there's anyone out there whose tried Sushi and doesn't like it... I suggest you give it a second go around, you might just like it this time. Next, our book. The Guardian, by Nicholas Sparks: it was an okay book, kind of creeping, kind of forgettable. But, what we ended up talking about was Twilight. Of course. I don't know what has happened to all of us. There is something about that set of books. It's like you can't get over them. We were all talking about how we mourned when we finished the 3rd book. We just weren't ready to let go of Edward and Bella. So there we all were sitting in the middle of a tiny, cramped sushi joint ranting and raving about how perfect Edward is, how we imagined Alice looking, how we can't stand how manipulative Jacob is, and how many hours are left until the fourth book comes out. Sick, a bunch of grown women sitting around obsessing over a teenage Vampire love drama. We even rushed to Tashi's house after dinner so I could show them all the pictures of the Cullen family from the upcoming movie on Stephenie Meyer's web site. I know, we're pathetic...

you guys are cute. you should tell tashi to get a blog. and your right about sushi. it grows on you (& it helps to make sure your actually getting good sushi too.) i think i need to read the other 2 vampire books. merv bought them for me for christmas and corrine totally raved about them, but i just didn't like the first book that well so i never read the other 2.

I had a lot of fun this weekend! Does it get any better than sushi, shopping and pedi's? It was so fun to see my sweet niece and nephews. Every time I see a pic of Ethan now I want to call him Spence! I'm so glad that you are my sister. I love you sissy!
