Re: What books are you reading?

Petrichor, that sounds really interesting! I haven't heard of that book. I definitely recommend it! The book is narrated by the younger sister observing all her older siblings' lives and romances, and it's such good fun. :D I'm currently reading The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer, and it is absolut...

Re: What books are you reading?

I finished Laddie by Gene Stratton-Porter the other day. I absolutely loved it. When a book starts out with a character making a pair of trousers for her pet bluejay, Hezekiah, you just know it's going to be good. :inlove:

Re: Favorite Memories

I think about this thread all the time because my sister and I now use "Spatrichor" as our save file whenever we play games together. Team Spatrichor forever! \:D/

I made key lime pie again! I was sick last year, so it was nice to get back to tradition this year. :yes:

Re: A Good Monster Laugh

It's funny that you bumped this just now, bookworm! I was just talking with some friends the other day about how this was a good song, but the music video is so completely early 2000s.

Re: 2022 Winter Olympics

Really sad turn of events with the women's figure skating this year. I only watched a few brief recap clips and those were pretty heartbreaking. I don't know why they even put Valieva on the ice. What a disaster, and a bummer for the winners, too. :( I find the Russian skating scandal such a mess. I...

Re: 2022 Winter Olympics

Yes, I love ice dance! I think it's the most entertaining of the figure skating events. I definitely knew that lyrics were allowed last Olympics because of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir's awesome "Roxanne" program that won them the gold medal for Canada. I was really missing them this time ...

Re: 2022 Winter Olympics

I haven't gotten a chance to watch very much of the Olympics this year, but I caught a little bit of the ice dancing. Not sure if I'm a fan of having lyrics in the performances now. It might just be that I'm not used to it, but I don't feel like they choreograph the performances to the lyrics in any...

Re: What books are you reading?

I'm currently rereading the Blood of Kings trilogy by Jill Williamson and just started From Darkness Won today. I was a little apprehensive to pick these books up again because I loved them SO much when I was in high school, but I've been so pleasantly surprised by how good they really are.

Yes, I think of it as an acronym rather than an initialism. I suppose that's where the different schools of thought come in.

Re: Why Are You Here?

Wow, now that you mention it Petrichor, that could be considered a poem. I never say ToO like "too" so I actually didn't intend it that way, but once you called it a poem and changed the line spacing, I was amazed at my own genius! :lol: I'm trying to remember who I met in real life who p...

Re: Why Are You Here?

There are so many great memories from the past, and friends old and new, that are here on the ToO. That is a lovely poem, Catspaw. :sniff: I joined the ToO because I had a few friends who were members and I wanted a place to talk about AIO. I can't believe I've been here almost ten years already!

It has been eight years since the Magical, Wonderful, Sigavvie Generator ate my money, and I would like a refund, please.

Re: Drinking The Tap

I always drink tap water from home, but we have a well and a filter. I've never actually given any thought to not drinking tap water since I've always been lucky enough to live in a place with well water. If I'm going out, I do like to fill a bottle of water at home and take it with me. I definitely...
