Anyone ever read Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden? I remembered this book and, lo and behold, it was in the library. I haven't read it since middle school! *cuddles* This series is amazing. It freaks me out so badly, makes me feel for the characters and their situation so well. I'm ridiculously excited to have found it. Now I just need the next one....

I already fangirled through e-mail at Mitch, and I can't do that about the same book twice. :)

My obsession with this song is partly because, omg, it could totally be All About the books. Also, I'm a complete whore for huge, dramatic drums (it sounds like marching) and John's scream. This song gives me goose-bumps.

I have decided, despite "I Don't Want This Anymore" with the ambient vocals that irk me so, I really do like Prepare To Be Wrong. I think the demo version of "It Never Gets Easier" ("Costello") was much better, but that's what I thought about "It's For The Best," and I slowly came to love the album version maybe more than the demo. What is the tune "With God On Our Side" played to? Does anyone even know wtf I'm talking about?

In other news: Lost is pissing me off. Show shit in order!

My computer was dying and now the computer dude says it's perfect again... I haven't decided. The grey screen of death reared its ugly head again, but that's so common now it's not so much worrying as VERY FUCKING ANNOYING.

Halloween? Trick-or-treating! You're never too old for candy. We're lazy fuckers, so we'll probably drive from house to house. *dies at the thought*

I remember those books.

We had to read them in grade 7. And we all got freaked out and we were like, "Miss! Could Australia reeeaallly be invaded?". Lol.

Hmm, maybe I read it in 7th grade as well. And it still freaks me out, man.

Everyone and their dog read it in grade 7 here. It was required reading. Lol.

Everybody studied it because it's so damn good! And because John Marsden is Australian it's like. Home grown. Or whatever. XD

It wasn't required here so much as I'm obsessed with Australia. :D

Heh. I will harass your country someday! And see if something kills me. ;)

We'd all be too lazy to kill you, dude.

You: *botherbother*
Some Aussie: LOOK. SOMEBODY'S BEING A DICKHEAD! KILL EM!
Some Other Aussie: ... Mmmeh. Let's go to the pub.
Some Aussie: ... Hokay.

*shrug*

You could just throw a snake or spider or anything at me.

Touching creepy crawlies? I don't think so. How about... we just... I dunno. NOT invite you to drink with us. GASP.

Pfft, you guys must be about 34785380432 episodes ahead of us in Britainshire.

The cliffhanger revelation in last nights episode was:
"OMG OMG CLAIRE ISN'T DEAD BUT WTF WHERE IS HER BABY OMG NOES!!1!/!"

...yeah.

I have managed to see NO episodes of Lost so far, but people here are planning a 'Lost Weekend' and so I think I'll join them. I did quite want to see it, I just missed the first few episodes and then didn't see the point in watching.

Yeah, it's rather confusing all the time if you miss the first few.
