S is for Supercilious


You'll never guess which language that is. Well, I guess you could guess if you looked it up on Google translator or something. Anyway, that's hello in Swedish. Isn't that cool? Well, I thought it was pretty cool, its not everyday you see the Swedish hello on a blog. So yeah, that's my famous foreign hello for today. Hope you all enjoyed it.

The Word of the Day is Supercilious. If you look Supercilious up on the online dictionary,  the definition is haughtily disdainful or contemptuous, as a person or a facial expression. You know I remember actually learning this word in the 10th and 11th grade. Sadly though, all the vocabulary I did in school did not help the words stay in my mind. Maybe I should stop telling people what the Word of the Day's definition is, not like you can't look it up yourselves but then again. If I put it up for you all to read then no one has to leave this page to fine the definition of the Word of the Day. 

So I am well on my way for my Must Read Books of 2011 List. I finished it last night with one hundred and three books on the list. I think I might put them up on Goodreads so I can keep track of what I plan to read this year. The only problem I have with my list is a lot of the books are ones I don't already own, so I have to either buy them or borrow them from the library, which I would really hate to do since I have this pet-peeve about borrowing library books. I just don't like doing it. I use to do it a lot but I noticed that after I returned the books to the library and months would pass and then I would get this urge that I wanted to pick that book up off of my shelf and start reading it again. I  prefer buying my books so I always have them. So no way! I'm going to try and buy as many as the books on my list as possible this year. I think I will work them into my budget.Of course, I won't be buying any books if I can't obtain a job.

Let's see, I actually think I will start writing again this week. I already have a lot of free time on my hands and I know getting a job won't take all of it away.  So I should be able to at get it close to being finished this year, that is if I don't slack off  like I tend to do from time to time.  But anyway, I really want to finish writing my book. It would be nice to start something and then finish it. I know I will have to do a lot of editing and probably have my friend read over it because she can catch things that I wouldn't be able to. I can't edit my own books sometimes because I can't see the mistakes that are typed on the screen. I know that makes me kind of pathetic but I have already accepted that fact about myself.

Well I'm off to see the wizard. So have a great day everyone. Oh, I almost forgot. Today my friend and I are riding the Public bus for the very first time. I have never needed to use it before where I use to live. But now we have to return books to the public library and we can't walk there. So our only option is to get on the bus. So anyway, wish us luck, even though luck doesn't really exist. So hopefully we will be blessed to have a good bus ride to the library. One more thing that I'm doing today is getting my ears pierced again. I'm getting my second hole today. Right behind the first one.

Love Britt
