Read: Wizard's First Rule

Fantasy stories rule my world.
At least when I have time to read them.

Recently, I was able to get myself a copy of this book:


Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind.The first of the Sword of Truth series.
An epic quest featuring mystical creatures, some dark magic and a little side romance make this book an compelling read. You almost don’t notice that its more than 600 pages.
This book is so popular that they have created a series based on this called Legend of the Seeker. And I was told that Sam Raimi of the Spiderman series directed it.
I have yet to see the it but if it is even half as good as Game of Thrones, then I’m prepared to lock myself up for days finishing it.

Watch: Mindy Project

Do you watch The Mindy Project?

If you like quirky romantic comedies about doctors trying to navigate between their hectic professional and personal life, then watch this.

I don't really watch it, but I try to catch some episodes if I can. And I have started to like Dr. Danny Castellano's character.

 And also because he says the darnest things like:

Danny: Was he a man?
Mindy: What do you mean? Yeah, of course he was a man.
Danny: No, I mean, like, was he a man?
Mindy: Danny, don’t just repeat it and expect me to understand what you’re saying.
Danny: Was this the kinda guy who, if he heard glass breaking in the middle of the night, is he gonna jump out of bed, say, “stay here,” and look through the house naked with a baseball bat, or is he gonna hide under t…

On Breaking Up With A Friend

I’ve had my share of female friendships over the last 3 decades of my existence.

Some of them I am glad to have, some I’ve learned to let go of, one way or another.

Having a solid set of girlfriends is a necessity for every woman.And even someone unemotional and unlady like as me, needs those girlish moments of perk me upchats and life affirming advise that only girlfriends can give.

Still, there are those moments when we feel like closing the door (and windows) on some friends.Sometimes temporarily, sometimes indefinitely.

And that is OK.

We should have no qualms about cutting people off and severing those worthless connections.Life is too short for “no good” friends.


At this point in our lives, we should have learned to foster the right kind of friendships.Those that really matter to us and make us better.Friends who are not so much like us, but those who would give depthand meaning to our lives. The ones who will remain with usthrough the whole of our existence even when we have ceased h…
