Re: Where are you?

North America, USA, New Jersey

Re: Getting to know you...

Neat!

I'm in NJ, but I compete at horse trials at Bucks County Horse Park! Nice area. :)

Re: Alan Dean Foster under-rated?

I've only read Splinter of the Mind's Eye (one of his two Star Wars novels- I've been meaning to pick up his other one), but I liked that.

Re: Unlikeable Main characters (was titled Favorite USUAL Character?)

*applauds* Perfectly said.

Just as a note, there are plenty of flat characters that can lead to in-depth discussions. I can talk for hours about Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake, even though...

Re: Books you just couldn't finish!

You should read it! It wound up being really good. And funny. I know what you mean, though - it is written strangely. But it's good.

Don't attack me, but I don't like a one of them. There's not a single round character in the 9th pass. Or really, in...

Re: Holiday Tradidions

Here are my "traditions" or really, typical holiday things, because we don't have too many traditions.

Thanksgiving, all Jewish Holidays but Hanukkah and Yom Kippur: Meal at my grandparent's...

Re: Getting to know you...

*grins* Well, the three that would generally be considered more difficult to get into are Cornell, Dartmouth, and Carnegie Mellon. Then BU, since the program I want has a yearly Freshman class of...

Re: Sad end of an Era at my house.

Another Jewish one here. We celebrated Christmas as well, because my uncle is Christian and my cousin (who is basically my brother) is 1/2 and 1/2, but we never did the Santa thing. We always knew...

Re: Birthdays/Ages

Always a brunette here. Although, it has gotten lighter and redder the older I've gotten. One odd note about my hair - I have a friend named Orli (she was illara on the KT - way way in the...

Re: Books you just couldn't finish!

I agree. I got through it only by skimming the bits that went like "and then this knight smote this night and gave his horse to this knight, who then smote this knight...." yada yada yada. The...

Re: Getting to know you...

Yeah, almost too much of a choice. I don't think I'll be able to decide! I doubt I'll get into Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, or Dartmouth (also applied there, but they didn't have an essay), and it's...

Re: Birthdays/Ages

I'll allow you that. It's a well-known fact that I'm not really a kid. In fact, when I was about 11, an adult friend of mine looked at me and said, "You're not a child. You're an adult in a...

Re: should I introduce my brother to Pern?

Don't bother. Just my personal view, but it's a combination of bad science fiction, soap opera, and bad video game plots. And I gave it a try, reading the author that is apparently the king of...

Re: should I introduce my brother to Pern?

I think 13 is plenty old enough - I was 11 when I read the Pern series. Although I don't know if I should be the one to go by - I was ten when I read The Horse Whisperer, and if you've read that,...

Re: Books you just couldn't finish!

*tries to think* I can't recall a book I've never gotten through. Oh, it took me two years and six tries to read The Silmarillion, but I finally got through it. Same with A Tale of Two Cities.

Re: 19th century sf authors

I was never a fan of The Time Machine, and I don't particularly consider it science fiction - there isn't an ounce of actual science in it. Verne however, I adore. His books are detailed and...

Re: Tolkien

I read the Lord of the Rings monthly, and The Silmarillion once or twice a year. I've read The Hobbit several times, but I've never liked it as much as the others. The world-building that Tolkien...

Re: Good luck to Kerianth on your thesis!

Good Luck, Kerianth!

And hurry up so you can start plotting again at Cibby. ;) Not that I'm one to talk, I'm still on LOA for college applications.
