Okay, I was working really hard this week, and feeling sort of downtrodden and sorry for myself, so yesterday after a totally unpleasant meeting with somebody who I felt was OVERLY CRITICAL toward me, I got a new bird feeder at Target. I have always wanted a bird feeder. I just got this cheap plastic one, I don’t know, I’m not sure what a good bird feeder is, so I thought I’d start with something modest.
Anyway, now I have it here, with some very yummy bird seeds, but I need a bracket of some sort. I am so excited to put it up, and I considered rigging it up with a hanger in this certain way, but what if it fell down while birds were on it, and the birds were injured? So I have to get to a hardware store. Except there is not one in my neighborhood so I need to wait for the car. I will update you on when I get it up! Maybe a photo of my first bird visitors!
Okay, I just started Midnight Awakening. In fact, I am so early in the book (page 58) I don’t have much to say, but I have formed some specific high hopes!
High hope number 1: I hope that Elise becomes part of the Order! She is already sort of like Linda Hamilton in Terminator Two. Maybe she won’t fight alongside them, but I would be so into it if she could be like the one who sniffs out the Rogues with her super psychic senses.
High hope number 2: In the meantime, I would like to see her and Tegan really be a Rogue and Minion killing team on their own. It says on the back of the book that an alliance will be forged and a vow made. Could it be them as a killing team? Maybe I have been working too hard but this is something I do want to see.
High hope number 3: Tegan is sort of on the fringes and anti-social. Usually these Breedmate women sort of soften and socialize their men. I would love to see Tegan and Elise remain on the fringes, though, and be the freaks everybody is sort of frightened of, like Tegan is now.
High hope number 4: It would be cool if Elise and Tegan could combine their powers to be a superpower. She can hear thoughts, he can hear emotions. What if together they could do something that was greater than the sum of their parts?
Even if my wishes don't come true, I am sure I will love this book from what I have heard from LesleyW and MaryKate and others. In fact, I am sure by page 100, something even better may be true.
Even more likely, by page 100 I'll just be totally focused on wishing Tegan and Elise would hurry up and have sex while sucking each other's blood and I won't care whether they are a killing team, but for now, my hopes are of a purer sort.
