Busy Weekend

I used a reading assignment as an excuse to scrapbook.
I listen to my books and I got this one on my iPod,
it was a great reason to let the creative juices flow.

From the Strangest Places

Forensics season has begun and this year I have decided to step outside the box
(I try to do this whenever possible)
and do something completely different. For me this means doing something other then a formal speech. I have done oratory and special occasion, so this year I wrote a group interpretation of literature about Star Wars.
I had planed on doing a published piece about Sherlock Homes but
my partner wasn't as interested in that.This brings us to last night, where, for the sake of research I was watching Episode V.
(Confession: I had never seen any of the Star Wars films until I was sixteen.)
As I watched I started to think about what Yoda was telling Luke about the force:
"For my ally in the Force.
And a powerful ally it is.
Life creates it, makes it grow.
It's energy surrounds us and binds us.
Luminous beings are we...(Yoda pinches Luke's shoulder)...not this crude matter.
(a sweeping gesture) You must feel the Force around you.
Here, between tree...the rock...everywhere!"
It sounds really cool to me.
It caught me off guard at first, I never expected philosophy from a Sci-Fi film.
I was wrong.

(Also-any movie with Harrison Ford is good by me!)

Birthday Cards

Quickly I have some cards to show you.
I have a ton of birthdays coming up and I had a deficiency in good birthday cards.
I have now rectified that situation!

I hope you enjoy!

A Quote to Start the Week

Here's to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square hole.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them,
disagrees with them,
glorify or vilify them.
About they only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do.

A Little Light Reading

I just recently finished two really good books!
Both are pretty fluffy but worth it.
First- High Five by Janet Evanovich
It is the fifth in a series.
It's cute and fun,
Evanovich would take a scary situation
and make it not only comfortable,
but laugh out loud funny.

The second is The Seduction of the Crimson Rose by Lauren Willig
This is a fourth in a series,
neither series is necessary to read in order.
This one is a historical romance set during the Napoleonic Wars.
It's all about the respective country's spies and their personal lives.

Both are completely adorable!
