Hey there, hon- just wanted to check in to see how SB is treating you guys! Hope all is well!
March 09, 2012
SB is ok. I don't spend much time out and about except when we are eating. I am just way too busy with school! I like Ventura more. I go there with J when I have a day off from school. I spend the entire time working in a coffee shop or at the Ventura Library.
March 19, 2012
I like Downtown SB much better than IV or Goleta. Ventura's SUPER cute- I remember there being a ton of vintage shops there. Have you guys checked out Paradise Cafe? It's a nice romantic spot...
March 19, 2012
I like Dowtown SB, but it can get really congested with traffic. Goleta is a little easier to drive around in, minus IV which is a mess of bikers! Ventura is my fave among them all, though. We haven't checked out Paradise Cafe. Where is that located at?
April 08, 2012
I hear ya...and IV...I STILL call that place HIV LOL Paradise Cafe's on the corner of Ortega and Anacapa. Here's a link for you: http://www.paradisecafe.com/ OR affordable Italian at Pascucci's...there's so much great food places there. Ventura is fun, I have to go back now that it's been over a decade.

I really liked the new John Carter film. It helps to be familiar with the early ERB books. The film takes a few elements from the books and expands them a bit. No astral projection to Mars as in the book, but it's still fun to watch. A lot of pro reviewers really missed the mark, comparing it to Star Wars, etc., when ERB came up with fliers back in 1912! He pre-dates Buck Rogers.
March 19, 2012
Does sound like a fun watch. I'll have to see it sometime!
March 19, 2012
Yep.

Devora just doesn't answer. No reason or rhyme.
March 19, 2012
Doesn't seem like her. She's usually very attentive.
March 19, 2012
I know!
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile March 19, 2012
Sorry you missed my reviews. I've been taking them down. My John Carter review and my 11/22/63 reviews are on Amazon. The 11/22/63 review is also on Goodreads and Shelfari.
March 19, 2012
Yes, I noticed that. I'm sad. I don't check as often these days to stay on top of it. I'll have to look on Goodreads after this last week of finals.

Happy Birthday!

August 10, 2011
Thanks so much, James! I love the image too. :)
August 10, 2011
Yep, you're welcome!

How are your classes going?
October 01, 2011
Tough! It's interesting that friends think my class is an art computer class. There are no computers anywhere! Design 101 deals with paper, glue, scissors and stuff. And lots of evaluation of art. Midterms are next week, sadly.
March 09, 2012
How did you end up doing in that class? I like the old school use of scissors, paper, and glue. :)
March 10, 2012
My final project in that class was making a nutritional Tarot deck, where I predict your grocery future. Was pretty goofy but I got a B for the effort. Other students made a beehive out of wood and paper mache and another made a grocery bag that folds out into a picnic blanket. I did this class because it was a prerequisite to a photo class I decided not to take! Duh!
March 19, 2012
Interesting final project. Sounds like it was a lot of fun, though.
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile October 21, 2011
I hope USB is going well. I have not had a lot of time lately but I have written up some comics reviews. No book reviews yet! :(
March 09, 2012
UCSB is going well...just really crazy. The quarter system is a pain in the rear. Looking forward to a short break before we begin the spring quarter. Just need to finish my finals.
March 10, 2012
Gotcha!
March 19, 2012
Last week of finals.

Hi -- will there be a 2011 readers list badge?
March 09, 2012
Yeah, we can have some 2011 readers badges. I don't have time to make them, though. I can ask someone else for help with the design. Did you want the same type of badges as from 2010?
March 10, 2012
Oh yes.
March 19, 2012
Since you are no longer a member, I guess this is a moot point. Sorry I didn't get to it sooner.
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile March 04, 2012
I created a Hunger Games badge for those who have read the book and seen the movie at Forbidden Planet. From the trailer, the film looks faithful to the book.
March 09, 2012
Congrats on creating some cool new badges. I haven't had time to create some, but I will make some time during my week break before the next quarter begins.
March 10, 2012
Yep, can't wait for this movie. And John Carter, since I am a big ERB fan.
March 19, 2012
Keep me informed of what you think of the new John Carter film.
March 19, 2012
Let me know what you think of the new John Carter film!
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile February 23, 2012
Hello, Adrianna! How is everything?
March 09, 2012
Hi William. Life's ok. Hectic and busy. How about you? We should talk sometime! Sounds like there have been some changes!
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile September 22, 2011
You are missed around here, lady! Hope your move is going well :)
September 30, 2011
Aw, thanks, Debbie! I miss everyone here so much! Right now, I'm trying to finish unpacking the last 20+ boxes and get settled into the quarter system. It's really throwing me for a loop. I have plenty of review ideas. I just need to make the time to write once I get my homework done.

July 12, 2011
Thanks! Off to read it now. :)
August 01, 2011
I may be there myself this weekend. :)
August 01, 2011
Still haven't gone there yet, lol. Let me know if you do, James!
August 01, 2011
I will. I should print out that review. :)
August 01, 2011
Cools!
August 09, 2011
I was not impressed with Tupelo Junction on my visit there! The salad was good and the service was OK, but it's empty place and taking 10 minutes to get me a pie & ice cream was much. Plus, an employee was chatting on her cell phone in the dining area. Brother!
August 10, 2011
Aw, that's too bad! I'll be reading your reviews of both Tupelo and Red Viking soon. For now, I'm off to volunteer at the library! :)

Hi, I hope you got my messages. Will be heading south on Thursday, Aug 4, my amazing birthday. :)
August 01, 2011
I haven't checked all my emails, but I will look for it. We might be heading out Friday, so I'm not sure we will watch each other. What time you getting here Thursday? And, happy early birthday!!
August 01, 2011
Hi, That's the thing -- we like to "wing" our road trips so that we're open to all eventualities. Oddly enough it works. I do know that I will be in Salinas on Thursday and then we pack it off to Solvang. After an overnight in Solvang, I believe we're heading down on Friday and at the latest Saturday. Sorry to sound so unsure. I'll get in touch with my pal and let you know when things are firmer. I know you're busy, but I'm online all the time so I'll get an email to you via Lunch as soon as I can. I won't have email access on Thursday through Saturday though. I should have more info tonight.
August 01, 2011
Ok sounds good! I'll check with my husband about when we are leaving the area too.
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile July 08, 2011
Thank you Adrianna, but I'm not much of a reader and wouldn't offer much. Thank you anyway.
July 08, 2011
No problem. You're welcome to join at any time no matter how much or how little you contribute. It's just fun having people around to dialog, read, and discuss topics and issues that arise in the community. :)
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile June 17, 2011
Hi Adri: Here is the link that refuses to send: http://www.lemondrop.com/2009/12/07/j-r-wards-dark-lover-book-club-4/
June 17, 2011
Thanks for the link, J. I'm not sure why Yahoo wasn't sending it through.
June 17, 2011
No prob Adri- Darn Yahoo and it's nonsense. Talk to you soon!
June 17, 2011
I agree. I was just talking with Orlok about it now. They have some major glitches.
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile April 21, 2011
Thanks for the invite. I look forward to checking out more reviews in the community.
April 25, 2011
You are very welcome! Thanks so much for joining. Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to your comments, discussions, and contents for Cafe Libri!
April 26, 2011
Lol Alright I'm in now for Real. Thanks for the invite. :)
April 27, 2011
Yay! Great! Thanks so much for joining! I was afraid I did something wrong with the first invite. I still find little nuances about Lunch that I have to get used to. :-P
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile April 12, 2011
I just noticed you updated your profile info, which caught my curiosity, so I re-read it. Just had to point out that "Multiple Consciousness and Chicana Falsa: Ripping Heads off Mexican-American Barbie Dolls" is perhaps the funniest and most poignant thesis titles ever. : )
April 12, 2011
Yup. I added a new link and edited the description about me. I joined a new publication site, but I'm not sure if I will actually contribute all that often there. Too many sites to cross-post to these days.

And, glad you like it! I got a lot of cheers when I walked across the stage and my thesis title was read by the dean. Jason still doesn't like that I used the colon, but I'm very pleased with it. :)
April 18, 2011
A colon is supposed to show more explanation or definition of the previous phrase, which I believe it does in this case. Nothing grammatically wrong with that! (Sorry, my two cents). I notice that I'm still in the top ten at Cafe Libri but still need to write more book reviews. I have a whole stack of cheap paperbacks but they're mostly sci-fi. My last recent book review was of a photography textbook I believe.
April 18, 2011
It's not the use of the colon that he objects to. It's the weakness he sees in titles that rely on the colon to further explain/define a title. He thinks the best titles don't use colons. :) And, you're doing fantastic in Cafe Libri! I've been trying to get a slew of reviews done for the community, but I've been uber busy! There was one point where I saw you in the top 5! Let me know when you post more contributions in my community. Will love to read them!
April 25, 2011
Regarding your status update, I'm failing at trying not to be stressed out, if it makes you feel any better.
April 25, 2011
Not really. :-P
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile March 31, 2011
Hey Adri, I just wanted to see if you'd heard anything more on your dad and wanted to let you know I'm wishing you and your family well. Take care...
April 11, 2011
I posted a little bit on your profile page earlier this morning. Sorry I ditched you so quickly. When I found out the news, I was really upset. Jason left work to come home and be with me. I'm glad things are improving, though.
April 11, 2011
No problem. I was kind of distracted with an essay for Blogger on that day anyway.
April 12, 2011
Good to know. :)
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile March 31, 2011
I feel like a total idiot. I had thought we'd initially become friends on Lunch so your request came as a bit of a shock. I am so sorry. I know we've had conversations on Lunch before so I'm feeling a bit like a fool right now. LOL Thank you for sending me the friend request and for following my contributions. I will gladly do the same. Cheers!
April 11, 2011
Don't worry about it, Brian. And of course you're not a total idiot, lol! ;) Maybe only partially. :-P I'm so bad! Anyway, you're awesome and your review writing is top-notch! Looking forward to reading more of your stuff. Thanks so much for adding me as a friend and for following my contributions. I'll take a peek once I get settled in back home. It's going to be a long trip today to get home. (yawn)
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile March 23, 2011
Hi; I saw your message about the poll but could not find it! (Lunch.com emails them to me). Anyway, I posted as many of Liz Taylor's films as I could. She's done many more. The sweet family film like National Velvet and the amazing sagas like Cleopatra and the drama of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Like you I have not watched too many of her films as I thought I had. I have seen many clips! I went onto Netflix today and ordered several films and put a bunch on my Instant Queue. Catching up too! I've made Sunday my watching movies day. Everything else is school and work and chores.
March 23, 2011
Sounds like a good idea to have a watching movies day. Maybe I will have to do that too. Glad you found the comment! LOL!
March 23, 2011
Yep, thanks for all your comments today. If you have time (LOL) see the Liz Taylor clip I posted at the community page for Silver Screen. See ya later, I'm off. :)
March 24, 2011
No problem. Was having fun playing "catch up." I'll try to check the clip out later tonight.
March 24, 2011
Great! I just received in the mail the movie "Swing Time" which is supposed to be the best Astaire/Rogers film ever. Will have to check it out on my view day Sunday. :) Yeah, let me know what you think of that tribute clip. It was made a few years ago -- she looks very attractive in the old black & white films.
March 26, 2011
I'll post a comment on your profile page when I watch it. For now, I'm busy working practically all week/weekend from 7am-5pm. I'm not giving myself too much time to relax on the computer until after Tuesday, which is when I'm done.
 
Posted to Adrianna's profile March 02, 2011
Thanks! I just finished watching a Jane Russell/Marilyn Monroe film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, since recently Ms. Russell passed away this past week.

Wow, what a show! To see the difference in flamboyance and somewhat cheesy dialogue from the 1930s to the early 1950s is really quite amazing. All in bright, saturated color, Marilyn's look was amazing and she was at the top of her game.

And if you want to see Jane Russell dancing and singing with a bunch of men in tight bathing suits, be my guest, LOL. I need to write a full review but it's getting late so I posted a short quick tip.

Hope you get better!
March 02, 2011
Sounds like a fun film. I saw your message about her passing too. It's nice that you can honor her with some nice reviews.
March 23, 2011
Yes. Sadly as more of these Golden Age actors and actresses pass on, I'll have more tributes to write.
March 23, 2011
Nods, reality of life. :(
