random thoughts

Sometimes i wonder exactly why my brain works the way it does? for example As I'm taking my shower tonight I find myself wondering about if the earth stopped spinning? We all have been told that gravity is what holds everything on the surface of the earth, but would really happen if it stopped spinning? We know that everything would leave the surface of the earth and fly into space but would it be a slow fly away? would we all be flailing around trying to land back on the earth or grab hold of something till we suffocated in the upper atmosphere before entering outerspace? Or would it be a quick fling giving us no time to really know completely what is going on? If it was quick like that would we suffocate before space or make it through only to implode in the vacuum of space?

then I find myself wondering which would be more tramatic? would billions of people find themselves waiting to be sorted in the afterlife while flailing away and holding our throats and chests because our last moments are remembering the slow death? Or waiting to be sorted while being confused from the suddenness of a quick flight through the sky and space?

I'm telling you something is just not right in my head. :P

Viking Flame review

I just finished reading "viking flame" by Ashland price. this book was originally bought during my viking/scottish book stage. I do remember that ashland price was one of my favorite authors during that phase so when I picked up the book I was looking forward to reading it, what i didnt remember was that it was a sequel to a previous book written. so next I will have to read the previous book just because I prefer to read series together. but anyway on the the book.

Viking Flame was a well written and engaging story. I enjoyed the characters, they grabbed my and I felt what they felt. The female character had a major dilema, her parents had the guy who they thought she should marry who happened to be a erse soldier for the King and then she had the viking she liked who happened to be half erse and trying to settle into ireland in a peaceful manner. Of course when the 2 guys met all hell broke loose. Eventually things worked out in a happy ending (of course since it was a romance novel). but there was enough angst and bad things before the end to get my attention and keep it. I tend to like a little violence or angst in my stories when they aren't paranormal stories.

This book will go into the keep category. next I will have to read the book that this was the sequel to. I think I vaguely remember the story, but we'll see.


keep -- 4 sell -- 1

hmmm.. the collection of books isnt really getting smaller yet?
