Comment Friday: 13/∞

It is Comment Friday here at Love All Books and at BAYB (where I grabbed the idea from initially).

The idea is to read the following post, then leave a comment while you're here.

The advantages are

  • you will get a link back to your blog from the comment you leave,
  • your blog will get some extra exposure from my loyal readers (<lol>both of them</lol>),
  • and I'll visit your blog (I'll even Stumble it if it's any good at all! One caveat on that last though: it might not be today, or even tomorrow, but eventually I will make it to every site that leaves comments here . . .)

So, on that note, as long as you're here . . .

I'm still re-reading (to refresh my memory) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling (book seven, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out at midnight TONIGHT so, yes, I'll be re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince also.

I think I'm finished struggling in my XML Programming class at Saint Paul College. (Saint Paul College is—as I've mentioned before—where I am working toward a Web Developer Certificate.)

All next week—the final week of my class!—Riley will be in an all-day camp, so that will help immensely.

I've gotten to the point that I can get my projects working most of the way, and what I cannot get to work the other students cannot get to work either, so I just turn in what I've got and hope the instructor can figure out where we all went wrong.

It's amazing to me how something that seems so easy could be so temperamental and difficult at times.

Please post a comment while you're visiting and tell me what you're up to. Tell me what you are reading and what you think about it!

Tell me what blogs you're reading frequently, and what new tools and technologies you're excited about (raving about even) these days!

And have a great Friday.

Oh, and head over to BAYB and leave a comment there!

My wife is eagerly awaiting the new HP book as well. We saw the movie last week and I was relatively satisfied. I thought more of the story could have been added to the plot. Hopefully I'll avoid hearing about the ending before I get to it.

Like you, I'm also re-reading my HP books but I don't think I can finish by tomorrow (or rather later today). I'm also reading Disgrace by JM Coetzee. Pretty good read so far.

Are you still using cocomment? I've uninstalled the extension as I couldn't even comment on some blogs at all.

I'm almost thru reading
Jonny Bowden's "Living the Low Carb Life." (It's kind of a dense read in parts.) I've branched out from there and have also been reading Dr. Adkins' "New Diet Revolution." Both of these have some fascinating info on the effects of food on your body.

I still haven't cracked open Charles Mann's "1491 - New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus." Kinda saving that for an uncoming trip...

Political Realm: Yeah, that's my worry too—hearing about it before I can get to it (which is still some way off!) In fact, I just decided that, upon seeing the movie already I could get by with a summary from Wikipedia and so I'm saying I'm done with HP5 and now will turn my attention to HP6 before HP7 gets out (I'm going to skim this one since I read it more recently!)

Lis: Yes. Still using cocomment, and mostly loving it. Turns out all my problems with it have vanished with one exception: some comments cannot be tracked. But those that can be are tracked well, it seems. And I've never found it interfering with posting a comment at all.

Rob O.: Low carb is, IMHO, an excellent lifestyle change; South Beach Diet worked for me until I had a lapse, which grew into a breach, then a canyon, then South Beach and I were miles apart and now I'm almost back up to where I started. So, my advice: if you start, stick to it. If you lapse (which, if you're like me, you need to do every now and again), then get back on track!

Have you seen the film yet (Order of the Phoenix)? Its OK - if you liked the previous one you should enjoy this too

Techsplorer (Eagan, MN) said...

Yes. I saw it opening day. I even wrote a little bit about it.

I've never done the Potter thing. I lived in England in my twenties and my life there was very... I don't know... anti-England (or anything that was related to the British-establishment. Something like that.) So when I saw the first movie with its wicked and the rest of the supposedly cool slang I couldn't continue. See, for me England was just like any other country, only the people were more pale, and the movie seemed to be in the tradition of an old idea of Englishness that I don't think ever existed. I love a good run-on sentence.

Lis said...

Hmm, maybe I'll give it another try.

Congrats for joining the dofollow community, I am following you soon.

I agree with you guys - your body will thank you for sticking to a Low carb diet.

Otherwise I think that everyone should find a diet that suits his/her lifestyle and stick to it.

The worst thing you can do to your body is trying lots of different diets all the time and gaining weight between them.
