"Teenage dinosaurs may have butted heads in violent clashes"

Actually, we still see teen headbutting today, but the clashes are over boyfriends and vindictive MySpace postings.

My personal outlook on friendship can be summed up in this handy phrase, suitable for taping up on the door of your locker:
"No More Drama."

For me, friendship in its essence implies trust, reliability, care, and communication.

Try it and see if it works for you.

Funny British Books

I just finished reading Sue Limb's Girl, 15, Charming But Insane.

It was very funny, reminding me of the Georgia Nicolson books by Louise Rennison and the TTYL series by Lauren Myracle. If you read adult novels, it read a lot like novels by Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones) and Sophie Kinsella.

The author's British, but despite having quite a bit of British slang, I could really identify with fifteen year old Jess, insecure with her looks and in love with a boy who doesn't love her back. Jess has to deal with the normal tortures of high school, a perfectly blonde best friend who looks like Britany Spears, and her own divorced parents.

I liked it well enough that I plan on reading the next two books in the series: Girl, Nearly 16, Absolute Torture and Girl, Going on 17: Pants on Fire.
What have you been reading lately?
I myself am DONE with dragons for awhile, though hairy-toed hobbits still charm me.

PS2 Gaming - MAYBE - Snow is Coming!

Hi Guys,

This is your librarian speaking. We were supposed to play Guitar Hero 3 and Singstar tomorrow (Friday, March 7th, 3:45-5:45 p.m.), but I heard on the radio that they are anticipating 4-6 inches of snow for Friday.

If you see white stuff on the ground PLEASE call the library first (845-3601) to make sure we are open before you head out walking or driving. If you get a recorded message with our hours, we are not open.

I don't want you to freeze your toes off trekking to the library if no one's to speak.

If I don't see you this Friday, I'll see you next Friday.

Maybe you should stop by the library today to pick up some reading material, just in case we do get snowed in. There's nothing better than reading while curled up on the sofa with a blanket...
