Things I Love Thursday: Humdrum Hunger Games


    I read The Hunger Games over the summer along with a group of friends.  I really enjoyed the ride.  And it is always better to have friends to talk to about books.  Last night we got to view the movie together.  I however didn't see the end.  I was bored.  So bored.  It felt like they were just trying to cram everything in as quickly as they could.  It was fun to watch with friends though.  We made a few cracks at the movie.

    I am glad I saw at least part of it though.  I will be reading the next two books, but I'll pass on the movies.  I have a lot to be happy about this week.  OR at least I feel like I do.  I am in such a good mood.

Spotlight: The Great Lolita International Scavenger Hunt

    You may have heard me talking about GISHWHES.  A wondrous adventure I take part in each year that produces pictures such as this
Teddy bear hostage situation. 
and this
Dramatically posed book fairy.  
    Plus, GISHWHES is a great reason (as if you really need one) to dress nice and be weird.


    Well in the last week I learned about GLISH.  "An event for Lolita fashion enthusiasts from all over the world to come together, have fun, and support community building."  

    Please take a moment to read about how they came up with the idea and what they want to support.  With less than 300 words it's a quick read.  :D

    It sounds fun doesn't it?

    Making new friends is so much fun and international scavenger hunts have proven to me so far that they are a great way to do that.

    So what do you think?  Are you interested in participating in a scavenger hunt that will celebrate a fashion that many of us love?  We still have until the 25th to register.  That's not far off.  Tuesday to be exact.

    The hunt starts this up coming Saturday and runs for one week.  I am looking forward to this new adventure and I hope to see you too.

 Tata,

P.S. For updates check their website or their Facebook page.  And always, be safe and have fun. <3

Things I Love Thursday: Air Conditioning


    This week was a bit rough.  The AC broke and in Texas that can be unpleasant.  However, the AC is now working and I still had a lot of fun this week.  So here are this weeks things I love.

Things I Love Thursday: Masala Chai


    I am still not unpacked from the trip.  I got a good bit done yesterday though because I needed a belt to wear.  Motivation for the little tasks can be difficult.  I need to set it up so that I have podcasts to listen to while I work.  Anyway I have a list of things I loved.  Some from this week and some from last.  We had so much fun on our trip and GISHWHES was exciting.  I want to do ten times better next year, but I suspect that there are some things we can do before then.  Anywho on to the list!

6 Books I Am Reading



    I am usually reading several books at the same time.  After peer pressure from friends I gave it up for several years.  I started to just read one book at a time. Waiting till I had finished it to start a new book.  It was miserable.  It took me over a year to read Dracula.  And I enjoyed that book too.  But you are not always in the mood for the seriousness of Bram Stoker's Dracula.  Sometimes it is nice to read something lighthearted.  Or something filled with excitement.  After I finally finished Dracula I decided to ignore the people who pestered me and read as many books as I wanted.

    At the moment there are six books I am actively reading.

Ask Me

    I am back from San Japan and GISHWHES is over.  I am tuckered out.

    There is so much to talk about and so much we did.  And I have so much mail, email, and Face Book notifications (among other things) to go through.

    As such I have had a lovely little snack, prepared myself a cup of tea, and now I will start sifting through all of those things that really ought to sift through.

    So I want to know your questions.  What do you want to hear about from my adventures at San Japan and during GISHWHES? Or any other questions you may have.

 Tata for the moment,
 Lilian

Things I Love Thursday: 10 Things I Love About Being Home


    Good morning!  I am back from the amazing weekend and I am smack in the middle of the GISHWHES hunt.  I feel like I am still recovering and getting back into the routine of things.  But that may just be a great reason to start a routine.  There were so many things to talk about the weekend and all the great people I saw and met.  I would love to dedicate some posts to talking in more detail about those things.  So today I will list 10 things I love about being home.
