Kavi and "Cooking"

Name Day! :D

The name of the week is Kavi.

I know, I know. Another boy's name beginning with "Ka". Sorry. I must just really like names like that. But I didn't just pick this because I like it. I picked this name because it belongs to my favorite character in that amazing trilogy called the Farsala Trilogy. He's the coolest character in my oppinion. Gosh, I wish I knew other people who've read it so I could talk about it with someone!! If any of y'all have read the books, or if you ever do, please let me know so we can talk about them!!

Meaning of Kavi: unlike most of the other names I've done (okay, so I've only done one other name...), "Kavi" seems to mean the same thing wherever I look. It means "wise man" or "wise poet". It doesn't really fit the character much, but I still like the name and the character.
When I woke up this morning, my headache was finally gone!!!!!!! I was really happy, lol! I got up, ate a Pop-Tart, and then we got a call from the realtor saying that someone wanted to see the old house! So the whole family went back to the old house to get some more junk out of it and just vacuum and dust and stuff. It looks much nicer in there than I thought it could. Lol, if any of you are looking to buy a house, let me know ;)

Tomorrow night, Ellie B is coming to spend the night! I'm so excited!!!! She hasn't even seen the house since it was finished. How pathetic is that?? One of my best friends ever, and she hasn't even seen the place with carpet. *rolls eyes* Anyway, I'm super excited that she's finally coming. We never see each other anymore. :( But we are tomorrow, so I can't really mope. ;)

I was determined to work on "Mirror" today whether I liked it or not, but I ended up just reading over the last part and editing a little. *sigh* I really do hope I finish this book. I have so many ideas. I just don't understand why I can't WRITE!! *grrrr*

Well, it's Thursday, which means I have to "cook" dinner. Yeah, cook is soooo in quotation marks. I think I'm gonna make microwavable Stoffer's mac and cheese. Delicious, filling, acceptable, and virtually fool-proof. My kind of meal ;)

I'd better get to cooking. I need all the wiggle room I can get.

I'll post tomorrow if I haven't burned the kitchen down or something ;)

Carpe diem!

Hey Kendra! I still owe you a reply to your philosophy writing. I don't know if I'll ever get to that.

Reading is for squares, girl. Of course I'm kidding, but I haven't read that (does sound familiar though as a teenage fantasy series). There's something nice about being the only person around who's reading a certain book. Books tend to lose that personal magic once they become mainstream. Anyhow, I'm sure there are online forums about that book if you're dying to discuss it.

I recently met a guy named Kai, which is another awesome "K" name.

Good that your headache is gone and there are prospective buyers for your old house. I've definitely been through that. Houses look strange when they're emptied of your goods. That's when they're no longer "home."

What's the mirror? You're writing a book?!

I've been writing for the Features and Travel departments mostly. So every week I write a bunch of paragraphs about upcoming weekend events, festivals, art shows, concerts, etc. Then for travel I write about "hot spots" or good places to travel, cruises, etc.

We seem to be having the same problem when it comes to writing.
Anyways, I've never heard of that book. Perhaps I will track it down and read it so you can talk to someone about it

I like Kavi, but I prefer Kaden =)

Eitan: It's okay. I know how busy things can get!

Lol! Yeah, I agree that it's nice sometimes to be the only one reading something, but I still like to be able to share my thoughts about it with at least one other person. When a book gets *really* popular, though, it's definitely just irritating. "Twlight", in my opinion, is an excellent example of too much of a good thing.

Ooh, Kai *is* a cool name! I'll have to find out what it means...

Yeah, it's really odd going back to the "old house" now. It feels so foreign and empty. Not like home at all. We haven't heard back from the realtor on what the people thought of the house yet. *crosses fingers*

Yes, I'm writing a book called "The Mirror"! :) I started a little over a year ago. I have a terrible case of writer's block, though. If you want to know more about the book, I made a website for it:

That sounds like a neat job! Do you like it?

Katrien: Ugh, doesn't writer's block suck? I have ideas, I just don't know what to write...*sigh* If you do read the book, let me know!! Lol :)

Krevan: Thanks! And my cooking went fine, for the most part. My parents told me to have dinner ready at 6:30. They were going to run some errands with my sister. Well, I started dinner at just the right time, and everything was going fine until they called and said they were going to be later -_- Lol! Things turned out okay, though. The mac and cheese was still good by the time they got there :)

good luck with the house

is 6:30 the regular time for dinner there? or at least a normal time? I'm just asking this because it sounds really strange to me having dinner at 6:30, here most people do it at 8:00 or later ^_^ (that weirdness and normality thing again ;])
XD those things happen. I'm happy about the mac and cheese x)
