Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments Happy Anniversary! You're going on 25 years, I'm not even sure I can commit to this challenge...

The voices inside my head are going off:
I will not sign up for another challenge...but this one looks so fun...you don't have time for another challenge...but we want to...pretty please, just one more...I said no, well...*wavers*...

To be continued...

Darn those cliffhangers!

Welcome to the group, Zina! And, the challenge! :)

LMAO @ Ames! Yeah, way to go, little girl. J/K >:)

LMAO @ Vivian too! Ah, come on, it's a yearly. Yearlies are so painless. You know you have 25 books already in challenges (think of all those A-Zs you signed up for ... did you? LOL) that'll fit rather nicely here too. ;)


message 36: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23497 comments Thanks Wan :)

Come on Vivian, you know you wanna!!!

Judithe | 6371 comments Nope, no peer pressure 'round here...lol!

...Come on, Vivian...it'll be so much fun, especially with this gang!

I'm enjoying poking over everyone's lists....looking forward to hearing how you liked them, too!!!


message 38: by Vivian (last edited Feb 16, 2011 10:47PM) (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments Gosh, I've been wacked out on drugs (for a cold, tame over the counter stuff). I don't even know what I've been posting the last couple of days. My apologies for my posts without a filter...

I'm gonna pass on this one for now. I am nearing the end of a couple 9-12 month challenges though, so I may be back later :)

ETA: I have NOT signed up for any A-Zs in SOS. I do have self-control, thank you very much! Well, not really, but I'm trying to get one finished in another group and a couple of the letters are being uncooperative so I'm a little turned off by them at the moment.


message 39: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28264 comments No filter? Didn't notice (seriously). Hope you are feeling better soon, Miss Med-Head.

It'll be here, if you change your mind. ;)

Hey, I hear ya! I got softly nudged (haha) into signing up for TWO A-Z challenges in 2011, after swearing I'd skip them following the forced reads w/2010s. Oh well. Glad you were able to resist! Good luck finishing off your other long-term ones.


message 40: by Vivian (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments I smirked a little to hear you were a victim of the "soft nudging". It's called karma, baby!

(J/K, you know I love you Steph!)

Glad I wasn't being too annoying with my non-filter. I always tell people I can never do real drugs because the cough syrup already makes me loopy, LOL.

And thank you Sandra and Judithe for the...um...encouragement to read more books this year. Don't worry, I'll see more people sign up and become jealous that I don't have a pretty list and I'll come crawling back.


message 41: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments LOL! We love ya regardless! I admire your restraint, though! I swore off A to Z's....and it lasted for about the first two days of 2011!


message 42: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23497 comments No probs Vivian, its an open challenge, just waiting for when you least expect it. LOL.
