I forgot how much I liked it!

OMG IT WAS ADORABLE. EVEN IN A DL! Supercute.

Thanks! You inspired me. I might tweak it a bit, it's hard to read what I'm typing in these comment boxes.

Looks like you tweaked it already because I can totally see what I'm typing. Yay!

I did! Right after I replied to you. Darkened the reply font as you type and made it bigger, and once the reply is posted, I made that text a little bigger, too.

Fun idea. :)

I thought it might be interesting to keep track of what I read and watch. And it might inspire to actually finish the twenty or so half-read books scattered about the place.

I've had the first book of the Last Herald-Mage trilogy on my shelf forEVER! I need to read faster.

Black Butler vol. 1

I think that's it. But still pretty impressive for a holiday. I finally finished the 2 books I was reading while you were here. Ridiculous. Now I've just got to read that huge hardback Pirates piece of crap and I'll feel accomplished for the new year.

Ooh, I never actually got around to reading The Exiled Queen... BUT I WILL. I'll make mum buy me the other ones as e-books for Christmas!

Thanks, bb! <3
