So...Wheres my lost Duke?

The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn came out today!

... In the US

Well that pops my balloon... *Sad sigh*

However that fact that I couldn't order it (I'll talk of this new resolution another time; its long and deserves a entry of its own - no matter how... un-
new (?) it becomes) really started to kill me cuz everyone knows: I LOVE buying BOOKS!!! EBay it, Amazon it, Que at midnight I'm there!

Anyways back to my story. I was saved from sudden (well slow) death (Melodramatic or what?) when at the last moment -yup a straining ONE day before release -Monday 26th May- My sister Khansa pre-ordered it!!! WOOHOO!!! And you guessed it, I'm next (Why does she have to live in Birmingham?) But coming from the US its estimated arrival is the 20th June. Finger-crossed that it will come WAY before then...

of June the answer is the stores in You may ask why I (cross that out Shali!) don't just buy it from UK since it comes out on the 5th Nuneaton don't get new books from JQ an till WAT after publication date. I'm pained to say that shes just not as famous as McEwan and Roberts - In my opinion she should be; shes great! And I recommend her to anyone.

With a new bubble or did I use balloon?

peace x

P.S.: A Interesting fact: In TLDOW the Dukes family surname is Cavendish. And you as you know i went to Chatsworth a couple of days ago, so guess what? The (who live there) surname is ALSO Cavendish. Duke and Duchess of DevonshireCoincidence? I think not.

But if you look at it Quinn has a imagination so she must have thought of it on her own w
ell unless she like me saw what a beauty Chatsworth is and inspiration struck ( Jane Austen's 'Pembely'. Which any fan of austen knows was inspired by chatsworth).

O.K. Had one of the greatest days in my life yesterday and even though its taken me this long to finally narrate it I am full of such... Exuberance. Yup, that fits. Anyways Yesterday courtesy of my brother (in-law): Mol Sid, my sister Memz and my dreams =] I went, finally! to Chatsworth!

WOW I'm still so psyched, which if you look at how long I've wanted to go Chatsworth (like forever! Just ask anyone who knows me...) shouldn't be much of a surprise. I went with Sums (my niece) and as I mentioned before my sister and her husband.

After trying so many times to express what a great time I had and how beautiful Chatworth and Derbyshire is I'm just going to post some of photos that I took. Hope you enjoy looking at them while keeping in mind that pixels can never give justice to real-life.

To tired to write anything else. Why do I seem to get so tired so easily lately? Its really annoying me; I don't even have any school (thank god!) Anyways... It was great next on my historic house to visit is Stoneleigh Abbey. I know, I know! I just got to go somewhere so i should calm down a little, but you know what they say: 'Aim high' and right now I'm liking the phrase not that I milk everything for what its worth I just LOVE to dream. and being in such a frivolous mood I'll say something that I will probably never say aloud (I prefer to keep most thoughts within): Oh crap I can't say anything I just can't I'm so used to keeping feelings like this in that publishing it is just too out... Sorry for the lead up.
I seriously need to go sleep now I feel like I'm falling asleep on this chair =]
The only hint i can give (blatant or not) is that tomorrow I'm going library and getting out: England: Travels Through an Unwrecked Landscape. Oh God! Now I'm loosing my mind(This is what happens when i begin daydreaming)

A total loss of week

Week in a word? Fast
I first opting for 'Busy' but the only repetitive thing I've done aside from attending school is watching 'Gossip Girl' and trust me when i say 'busy' cuz (I) having only started watching it (GG) this week, I have already watched the whole first season (!!!). Now, would you call that a waste of great worship/homework time? or just fine for someone my age? Well seeing as I had a actual GCSE Science test- Unit 1 this Wednesday, I know i should have been more concerned about the test, but I did revise and all in all I think I must have at least scraped a C. Which is actually fine by me but if (and I pray it is so) that i do get above then WOOHOO!!!

Now as you may have realised the Half-term Holiday looms above me (and maybe even you) and do you know that means in my life? Yup in (again) one word: Family

Starting from today the quiet house of 6 went up by another 6 giving a nice round Dozen (lol). But trust me mores on the way (inshaallah)

I can't think what I'm doing so I'm going of now. Ta!

Seven Words Before School

Just a quick entry before I get ready for school...
Well I could start with those constant seven words that tape themselves around my head:
'Can't Be Arsed To Go To School', yup that's seven words. I'm gonna try to come up with nee ones once in a while. It would probably be best if I put it in a morning entry that way I get my brain to start thinking... lol. Yes Shali, The sentence you just came up with was really strenuous... LOL.

Oh well that made me feel a touch better. Now I just gotta prepare myself for double R.S and Urdu (God! I hate those lessons; Don't get me wrong I understand that they may come of importance but for the now ... I Just Can't Be Arsed =] )

O.K, so why is my mum sitting around a pile of books reading a book titled: The Burma-Siam Railway ? I just asked her and she said its interesting and that its very detailed.

Spent yesterday watching the last two episodes of the Star Wars trilogy ( and Empire Strikes BackThe return Of The Jedi) I can't believe i forgot much of what happens I felt as if i was watching it for the first time!

Gotta go...

O.K so after mentioning
Hugo Weaving (Two posts earlier) I couldn't get V for Vendetta out of my mind when attempting to write todays entry. I really don't want to write about the usual; school, books and the like... God! Put that way my life sure looks dull! But just thinking about that I realise that i like it that way (most of the time), the idea of life suddenly taking a deep bend really (and I mean REALLY) gives me the heebz... I like to know whats going to happen. The element of the unexpacted has never really been a part of my life, so that probably explains why I like the right (IMO mott) and habitual way of ife.
Bottom line: I like routine and I like the sanctuary of book. Oh crap, I'm doing that whole self-analysing thing! Knowing Hanoofa (a teacher) I'll be doing it in PSHE tomorrow (and trust me when I say; I don't like it! Its too disconcerting). Oh crap! I'm talking about school *shal bangs her head*. Anyways back to what I was talking about; Hugo Weaving. =]

Which brings us to V for Vendetta, which then leads me to The 'V' speech... So without further ado I present that cool... V (;>) speech:

And just for fun (well in my opinion, lol) I've given it in writing:

VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

God! That was fun... lol

Just trying this e-mail feature.

I already published a big enough blog for today but I really want to see if this email-to-my-blog thing works so lets see. Well if your reading this It has. =]

Today's book: Finished Honest Illusion by Nora Roberts
                    Was attempting to read Amanda Quick's : Wait Until Midnight.
  However before i could get into it I found a certain (can't remember the name; I'll give it later) Star Wars book that my brother just brought today. But since his reading it I haven't been able to read it properly but I'm quiet excited  cause Mara-Jade comes in it and I absolutely love all those SW books that do have her in them.
 But while I wait I'm going back to some Balogh's and  Quinn's . Actually I really should try and get into that Amanda Quick book...
Anyways gotta go...
 x peace x

A weird weekend.

Well this day has certainly been ... different. Well as in oppose to normal days when I just:
1) Go school
2) Read
3) Eat
4) Some chores
5) Attempt to do homework
6) Surf the net
7) And sleep

But now that during Friday and yesterday the house occupants went up from the normal 5 to a big loud, boisterous and whooping 22!!! I finally came up with a answer to my last post; Yes, it is a good thing! I'm having so much fun! Normally I would be couped up in my bedroom reading *guilty*. But yesterday being such a fine weather me had tea in the garden while the kids messed around. Then with the kids I sat down and watched Enchanted which was... lovely *sigh* seriously, I love it when they make movies that are so... weird (for lack of a better word... unique?) For example how I love Shrek (come on you have to as well!) its a great concoction of fairy tales added with a great ugly ogre as the hero (plus Bonnie Tyler's great 'I Need A Hero' playing in my mind...). Although Enchanted doesn't run with the whole ugly-duckling theme, the characters are all amazingly... perfect...? Code by Dan Brown) ruin my image of the book. But Its a lovely lite-mood movie that really lifts your spirit and makes you laugh. Plus we get to see James Marsden singing... LOL. Next we watched The DiVinci Code, I think the reason I didn't watch it when it came out is because I didn't want the film adaption of such a great book (The DiVinci I'm happy to say that I was actually impressed with the movie it was good (although its complicated if you don't understand the theme... or in other words those who haven't read the book). Talking about complicated another movie that I watched was Matrix Revolution (it was coming on TV so I couldn't help myself... well is that suppose to be that I did help myself?) And as was bound to happen I became really sad that Neo and Trinity die! *sob, sob* Trust man, I'm in mourning (well, figuratively) But anyways if you want boggle your mind out just watched that especially if you haven't watched the first two of the trilogy (lately). But despite the grieving and the conviction that Matrix (One) was the best in the trilogy, I have to say that it was nice to see the whole Matrix gang again after so long... Even Agent Smith (probably because he's played by Hugo Weaving who plays V from V for Vendetta.=] )

Oh god its not even 10 o'clock in the morning and the I can hear the song 'How Do I Know' from Enchanted cause the kids are already watching... And I'm missing Breakfast.

Gotta go.
