  • Rose on CHILDREN’S HOMER: I liked the way Hector seemed evil from Achilles’s point of view, but when it was Helen’s pt of view he was good. #

    Hi Melissa, I follow you on Twitter. Friends are asking me about Twitter, they don’t get it. I’ve been wondering if I do too many updates.

    RE: articles: I find I tweet articles I read that I’d never blog either as I have no time, not much to add to the point of the article or just want to point people to what I’m thinking. Actually in this way my tweets reveal some of my political concerns when that is not the focus of my blog.

    I am getting to know more personal info about some bloggers by following them on Twitter. It’s fun and cool so long as I have time to read them. Well reading 140 characters can be done in seconds…

    Have a great day.

    At your recommendation I just read Austenland. Couldn’t put it down. I really needed a fun read after Les Miserables, Housekeeping, Mountains Beyond Mountains, Undaunted Courage, etc. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Oh, and dude, did your 7-11 clerk look particularly much like Hurley?

  4. Melissa Wiley says:

    More like Charlie. 🙂 Sob…I miss Charlie.

    Hey Hannah, if you liked Austenland, I bet you’ll really like Shannon Hale’s newest, The Actor and the Housewife. I just finished it, really enjoyed it.

  5. Hannah says:

    I am altogether adding that to my “To-Read” List. Maybe after I finish Three Cups of Tea.

    And please, in Season Six, I sure hope they make Charlie’s sacrifice worth it in the end!
