    Would you play with tarot cards?

    Thanks for sharing! I agree that they are inanimate and cannot actually do anything. I didn't know that it was just recently that they were associated with divination though. I am really interested in hearing more about how they inspire creative writing too. I do think the artwork on the cards...

    Would you play with tarot cards?

    When I was a kid I used to play with tarot cards I bought at the swap meet but my mom found them and took them away, saying they were "ways to talk to the devil". I don't believe that tarot cards actually do anything so I really would not care if people did anything with them. I just don't have...

    Ouija boards

    It's just a game. I don't understand why people think they are dangerous. I mean, if there were spirits I would think it would not take a Hasbro game to "connect" to them.

    What's on your 2012 reading list?

    I completed my first book of the year, based on the Twin Peaks television show. It's called The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer. I got it for the holidays from my boyfriend and I enjoyed it. It took me just an hour to finish it because I am a big fan of the show.

    Urban legends about your favorite drinks

    I was taken aback by reading some urban legends about Coca-Cola. One urban legend that I had previously believed to be true from my younger days was that if you left a tooth in a bottle of coke all night it would be gone by morning. I guess that was just a way for parents to scare us into...

    History channel in name only

    I don't even understand why they still call it 'The Learning Channel'. I get that they may like the initials TLC but they have changed so much of their content. I mean, now they typically show things like Sister Wives and Toddlers and Tiaras. I think there is something to be learned from these...

    History channel in name only

    There are a lot of shows on the history channel that don't make sense to me at all. Even some of the "history" shows are full of bogus history. I want to see more real history and more biographies. I think Pawn Stars is interesting enough but it gets annoying when that is the only thing on the...

    American horror story

    I mean, the show itself is already kind of hokey so I don't think it could get worse. The best part of the show was Jessica Lange and if I'm going to sit through another season I want her to be in it, even if she's a different character.

    What's on your 2012 reading list?

    I have a lot of reading goals for 2012. I want to read a lot more than I read this year. I am actually disappointed that I moved and lost interest in reading for a little while. I think my goal is going to be at least 100 books completed by the end of the year.

    American horror story

    Yep, I read that the next season will include new characters and a new house. I think it makes sense for the way the season ended. I also heard that some of the cast members will come back and play different characters. That could entice me to keep watching but we will have to see.

    Anyone watch the old episodes of frasier?

    I am not a fan of Frasier. Maybe I was too young when it aired to really feel interested with it. I do like some sitcoms but that's just not one I'm into. Of all the sitcoms I think I prefer Friends.

    Is anyone as sick of this one as i am

    If you have family that you want to keep in touch with online it's a great thing. Other times it makes me want to throw my laptop out of the window. Don't believe the hype about charging though. That is the rumor with every popular website but it's obvious they would actually lose users and can...

    Where would you time travel?

    I was watching the film Midnight in Paris last night and in the film Owen Wilson's character time travels to Paris in the 1920s and hangs out with people like the Fitzgeralds and Hemingway. If you could time travel to a place and time in the past, where would you go and who would you want to...

    Getting kids to read egyptian history

    I am always trying to inspire my little brother and sister to read a book. I have got them into horror novels for kids. I think that one great way to get him into Egyptian books is to take him to an Egyptian history museum. We have a big one in California but I'm sure there are others, or at...

    Is anyone as sick of this one as i am

    Agreed. I have friends (on Facebook) who will get hacked from clicking on videos and things like that. They will put their information anywhere and expect me to "fix it" for them. You have to be careful and look at the URL before putting in your log in information.
