Yay for people who play multiple instruments! I just started saxophone the other week. Friend of mine played it and offered to teach me, and compulsive instrument learner that I am, I couldn't say no. Sax is easier than oboe, bassoon, French horn, and clarinet. I mean anything is easier than oboe so...

Whoa ten instruments? That's awesome! I can't wait for college, I'm going for music education and I know you need to know lots of instruments for that. Since it's my goal to be able to play them all, everyone kept telling me that I should go into music education, haha.

Watership Down. I've been watching that movie since I was but three years old, a little, impressionable child. Been watching that movie for 14 long years, so I've gotten really into it. It's an old movie from the 1970s, animated, but dang...best movie I've ever seen. It's truly amazing, a great movi...

YES CoM is really good, IMO it's the best of all the things she wrote. You really get into it and get to know the characters so well you find yourself adoring them no matter what.

I was going to re-read it this summer but then got monsterly sidetracked. I'll probably read it again before the movie comes out anyway, or else I'll just ask my friend who can practically recite the whole book by memory /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.g...

YES! We had to read that, it was our summer reading for English this year and I hated it too. It was so boring, and dull, and long, and I felt really no connection or sympathy for any of the characters except for Gertrude who ended up being...um...a loose woman.

I strongly disagree with Watership Down, but I've got huge biases with this so you'd best ignore me. I've basically been around that story since I was three years old, El-ahrairah was the hero I'd always write about in school, you know, all that such. I love that book to death. But then again, I agr...

Shakespeare is splendid! In the beginning I didn't like him at all, because I found Romeo and Juliet to be very unrealistic. Then I read Much Ado About Nothing and fell in love with it. I adore that play, it's one of my favorite plays in the world. It's so brilliantly done and wonderful and would ma...

I love Discworld! I haven't read the entire series but what I've read thus far is just hilarious. Rincewind is my favorite, he's just so cool. And the Luggage...how can you not love the Luggage? I love what he does with Death, Death and his existential thoughts. My favorite was in "Mort" when he wen...
