Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

It was a dark and stormy night

Ken at It Comes in Pints tagged me. *snickering at the meaning "tagged" had when I was in college*

But, he tagged me with a book meme. So, here we go.

1) A book that changed my life:
Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus
This seriously helped my in my marriage. I have a better perspective of where the dude is coming from now.

2) A book I've read more than once:
What to Expect When You're Expecting (I've got three kids, what can I say?)

3) A book I'd take to a desert island:
This is a hard one. Probably the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I love these characters.

4) A book that made me laugh:
Falling Up by Shel Silverstein - my father-in-law gave this book to my oldest boy and there are some good little stories in there to incite laughter.

5) A book that made me cry:
I Love you forever - my oldest used to like to ask me to read this book because I could never get through it without crying. My middle kid does the same thing with The Kissing Hand. The Chronicles of Narnia made me cry with the final book.

6) A book I wish had been written:
How to make children eat and like their veggies before going to bed without a fuss and never sassing their mother along with its companion, How to make your husband tell you that you're gorgeous every day

7) A book that should never have been written:
Dude, Where's My Country by Michael Moore - *please say his name like you're spitting out a dirty word with vile contempt* I don't even have to say anything else.

8) A book I'm currently reading:
Close Range by Annie Proulx - I'm so not enjoying this. I have been trying to suffer through this short story collection for what seems like forever. It has Brokeback Mountain in it, but it is the last story. I can see where she is an uber talented writer. I'm just not into the Western genre and the characters are often icky people I don't care to read about. She likes to write about the dark side of people, it seems.

9) A book I'm planning to read:
Nerds Like It Hot - I got this from a website where I'm going to do some book reviews. Looks like a funny, romantic mystery.

10) Five people I'll send these questions on to (also known as who can I burden with one more thing to do today):

El Capitan at Baboon Pirates

ArmyWifeToddlerMom

LabKat

Mo at Six Degrees of Blondeness

Gadfly at Mental Floss

    Dang. It would be books. I know I've read at least one (it's periodicals and blogs with me anymore).
    Hey, but I should make Mr. Mo take this one, too!
    OK, I'll do it and post his on my li'l LJ as well.
    (You know, I think the books I've read will have people saying, "Ah. Now we know why she doesn't have kids. It's... probably for the best." :-D)

    OK. Here it is, girlfriend.

    Blondness has its challenges.
    Glad I'm married to a smart blonde guy (who really liked this meme, btw...!)
