Newest acquisition — Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris. With this, I’ve finally completed all four Harper Connelly novels.
Book Description: When she was 15, Harper Connelly was struck by a bolt of lightning, which left her with a spiderweb of red over her body, headaches, and episodes of weakness. Sometimes her right hand shakes. And she can find dead people.
It’s taken a while, but at last Harper’s pretty happy with her life: she’s making a living, using her unique talent to help people, and she’s got a lover – her stepbrother Tolliver. That creeps some people out, but though they grew up together, and got each other through the real bad times – their parents’ drug-use, the abuse, the disappearance of Harper’s elder sister Cameron – they’re not blood relatives.
Then Tolliver’s dad arrives on the scene, seeking forgiveness for the sins of their youth, and the police get a tip-off that after all these years, Cameron’s been spotted in a mall. With all this going on Harper realises life is getting a little complicated, but she doesn’t expect those complications to include Tolliver getting shot, or watching a cop die taking a bullet for her.
Harper can find dead people, but now it’s clear someone wants her dead . . .
Hi there. Earlier this week, I started playing PM Black again. Here’s what’s happening so far…
I took out Cress from the Striaton City Gym. He’s one of the three Gym Leader siblings. Using my newly evolved Pignite and my Lvl 15 Pansage, I got myself the Trio Badge!
After doing a lot of stuff after that–battling Cheren and winning, taking back the Pokemon Team Plasma stole from a little girl and the subsequent Pokemon-catching and level ups– I took on Lenora of Nacrene City and won against her. I received the Basic Badge for that. 🙂
You all knew what happened after that. Team Plasma barged into the museum/Gym and stole the Dragon skull (Dragonite skull, from the look of it) from the center exhibit. So I was tasked to go after Team Plasma and retrieve the skull with (gay?) Castelia City Gym Leader, Burgh.
Anyway, before that, here’s my Pokemon team so far…
I aim to add a Sewaddle to my team, as my Grass-type. Pansage is cool, but I already took him all the way to the Elite Four during my first playthrough. This time, I want to use something new. XD
More updates soon! XD
There was this guy sitting next to me in the bus the other night; prolly wanted to hook up. He kept rubbing his leg against mine. Like over and over. Even though I ignored him, not even remotely interested, and moved my leg as far away as possible, I felt a bit empowered.
It was a first. Some people actually want me. I guess my pheromones are still working. They are dead-ass lazy, but they’re still working. XD
To the best-est best Dad–MY DAD– Happy Father’s Day! XD
Sparkling City of Legazpi and Mayon Volcano! Only in the Philippines! 🙂 – Photo from Pilipino Ako.
I really miss this place. I stayed here for four years (but only on school days) when I studied at Bicol University (AB Journalism). This place is a highlight of my college life. It was the first time I lived away from home and learned about being independent. I met my bestfriends here, my secret crushes, also the people I’ve grown to hate.
This is the place where I became what I am today. My triumphs and failures, the things I’ve learned. All of it here, in this city, with that beautiful, wonderful volcano as an awesome backdrop.
I love it. I miss it. I’m gonna come visit again when I have the opportunity. 🙂
