Oh Happy Day!

Hi everyone!

How it's going? LOL :) I feel cheerful today :) Why? Well, many reasons... but it's mostly because some good things happened to me yesterday :D

(i) I went out with a friend yesterday and we had a nice time. We didn't do anything special... book-shopping (I know, I know... LOL :) and eating and walking around. I was kind of anxious before meeting her, because we rarely hang out together, only us two and well, a few years back, I was really annoyed with her... but it was really fun and I have a nice time :P

(ii) Books! I got 4 books yesterday: 3 that she gave me as a b-day present and one that I bought on my own. Want to know what I got? Fire and Ice, the new Anne Stuart - I've decided to give her another chance, plus the story it sets in Japan and I actually enjoyed Reno and Jill's character in Ice Blue. The new Celeste Bradley, Duke Most Wanted. Casee reviewed it at Book Binge and it sounded good. Pursuit by Elizabeth Jennings! That one was a tough one to find. There was only one copy at the bookstore and I didn't have time to look for it on Saturday when I went by... but I found it yesterday! So I'm happy... especially since I heard good things about it. Finally...


Yep! Dark Desires After Dusk! It was at the bookstore on the new releases table, so I grabbed it. I swear, I'll never understand bookstores. Sometimes, they'll tell you that the book is not supposed to be released yet and they won't give it to you although you have it in stock. Other times, the book is already released, but you can't find it because it's in the back room or on a cart or in a box and you have to look it up yourself... and sometimes, they just dump it all out at your feet. Well I'll take it LOL :)



(iii) I got one manga yesterday... Samurai Deeper Kyo volume 38! I've completed another series! Yay! Can you imagine? 38 volumes... 1 volume coming out every 2 months... so that's 6 volumes/year. So I've been collecting this series for more than 6 years! It feels great to have complete yet another series... only problem is lately, I haven't read as much manga and I don't know if there's any series out there worth to start. Well, actually I'm looking forward to some series... but there's just so much manga out there that I don't know them all. Anyway, I'm rambling. By the way, I was wondering... anyone would be interested reading if I started a weekly or bi-weekly features about manga? A bit like Keishon with her Manga Monday feature...

(iv) I got my new computer! Now, I did not open and install it yet, cos my room is still a mess and I was kind of tired yesterday. Still, I got it!

so yeah, I'm happy LOL :) Hopefully work, co-workers and supervisor won't ruin my mood. What about you, anything that made you happy lately?



PS. I forgot ^_^; I have a buddy review of Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich up over at Breezing Through. My buddy reviewier this time? Chantal :P

  1. I was at my crummy Barnes and Noble yesterday and there was no new Kresley Cole book out. Aaargh! Since I was passing through on another errand I didn't stop to ask anyone. That store gets on my last nerve.

  3. Yay for you! New computer, a nice time with an old friend and books. Doesn't get better than that.

    I'm happy because I don't have to work for the next three nights. Seeing as how I only work about an hour a night it's silly but I'm happy about it ;)
