YogaI finished Where are the Children?. I didn’t like it. I didn’t realise it dealt with child molesters, and it made me naseous. :/ But you can’t win them all. Picture this hour is of me doing the yoga minichallenge! I love yoga, and it helps my fibro so much, but I decided to just do the legs up the wall pose for some relaxation; corpse pose might have sent me straight to sleep! This is the least flattering pic of me ever (my dad took it, not that I’m pointing fingers…lol). The weird marks on my bare legs are from the way I’ve been sitting-my skin gets creases from pillows and clothes and stuff like that easily. And I don’t know why I have that extra chin, lol, but I swear in real life I don’t look like a bullfrog. ;) I think it’s a funny picture, though, so I’m posting it and hope it’ll make y’all smile! :)

Now I’m off to do more cheerleading! Except a vlog in Russian at some point in the next several hours; I completely forgot that certain people browbeat me into agreeing to that on twitter.

    There once was a reader with a book,
    Who hired this guy as a fry cook
    He battered it up,
    To serve it as sup,
    And now the book is gobbledegook.

    That pose looks like a good one in order to relax without falling asleep! Can’t wait for the vlog in Russian … not that I’ll understand a word, but I’m still looking forward to it. Hope you like your next book more than the last one.

    Ooh I remember reading Where Are the Children years ago. I thought it was super creepy (in a bad way) too. Ick. Hope your other readathon books are much better! And I’m keeping an eye out for your vlog in Russian!

    Enjoy the rest of the readathon!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
