My Mama is coming in three days, on this Friday, the 22nd for the weekend until sometime Sunday afternoon. When she called me last night, she told me that she lost her Pay as You Go cellphone, so she wants to get a new better phone with a real contract / bill. In fact, she has decided that she wants to get a Blackberry through Rogers or Bell that can still work when she goes to the trailer for weekends and holidays, as well as wanting a plan where she can text message and a data plan so that she can use the Internet on her Blackberry, too. She has also decided that researching all this and finding one that fits all her needs is MY job, since she knows next to nothing about cellphones, Blackberry’s, or technology in general.
So, that’s what I’m going to do, and then the plan is to hit Hillcrest Mall on Saturday to see if we can find a Blackberry plan that fits her, since Hillcrest Mall has three different cellphone companies in it, including Bell I think. Hopefully, our Saturday afternoon at the Mall will also include Lunch and coffee at Second Cup together, and maybe getting at least one of the Ty stuffed animals from Careton Cards that I mention a few entries back when I went window shopping at Hillcrest by myself a few weeks ago. The actual shopping with Mom depends on how each of our money is doing after she gets her Blackberry and after we go for Lunch and coffee. Regardless of what Mama and I do on Saturday and if we go out or not, the plan is to be home by my 6:30pm Dinner Booking so we can either cook or oder dinner, then just relax with TV or something for the rest of the evening. That’s the plan, anyway. -smiles-
Then, as I mentioned above, she will be leaving to go back home to Oshawa at some some point either late morning or early afternoon on Sunday the 22nd, so she be back at work on Monday morning.
Other than my Mama coming to see me this weekend, my only real news so far this week is that I finally finished reading / listening to all current 21 audiobooks of the “Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter” series by Laurell K Hamilton, and loved every one of them! How could I not like a book series that’s a mixture of vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, the supernatural, paranormal, wicca and witchcraft, all mixed with a bit of erotica, blood and violence? It’s just a really awesome, really interesting series. With the latest book being the 21st and it just coming out last month, I don’t know if it called “Kiss the Dead” is the last book in the series or noy, or if there will be more, but I really enjoyed the series.

I always have a book going both in audiobook format, and in traditional print format on my Kobo Ereader on my computers. Right now, in print on Kobo, I am finishing “Bloodlines” series Book 2 “The Golden Lily” by Richelle Mead, who also wrote the “Vampire Academy” series of six books that I just absolutely loved. In fact, her “Bloodlines” series is a spinoff of her “Vampire Academy” moving secondary characters into primary roles in the new series. I’m really enjoying it. From what I can find out about the “Bloodlines” series, Mead is planning for it to be eight books long at the moment. (http://www.richellemead.com/ & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richelle_Mead) I haven’t decided what I’m going to read next on Kobo when I’m done with “The Golden Lily”, but I have tons of books and grenres to choose from! -smiles-
In audiobook format, since I am officially finished with the Anita series, I am now reading / listening to “The Redwall” series of anthro aniimal / furry fantasy books by Brian Jacques. The series has ended with 22 books in it, and I have all of them in audiobook format. It is said everywhere that i can find that it is highly reccommended to read them in their Publication Order, and since i had already read the first one, “Redwall” before I started into the Anita series, I am now on Book 2 of “The Readwall” series, called, “Mossflower”. I started it this morning, and I already love it! The descriptions and details in this series are amazing, at least so far, and the reading of each book is done by different people (the same group of people each time), so that the characters in the books have their own distict voices and tones.
