101/1001 (24) & (25)

16 Sep

It got so late I didn’t bother you with an update last week (stop clapping at the back), so here’s two in one.

I have a new task: I have over one hundred poems that need writing up, printing out, copies for my notebook and copies for my files.  I have made it a task because I keep putting off doing it as I spend so much time blogging, so that makes it your fault.

I completed a task: Read all the Harry Potters for the sixth time. (7/7)Not so much a task as my raison d’être.  I completed it in about a month.  That’s slow for me, but I wanted to savour them on this, my eighth reading.

Don’t be surprised if you find this task re-instated before the end of the year.

And that’s it.  Guess you didn’t miss much last week.

We have more people joining us for the 101/1001 challenge.  So many, I’ve lost track of who I have welcomed and who not.  Welcome, everyone!  I will post this then add their links to the 101 blog roll on the right.  Eventually, I will need a separate page for them.

I think I have my next task.

    I do like your tasks. They are manageable and nice to think about. Mine are always much more dour.

      Mostly manageable – I’ve reached the ‘what was I thinking?’ stage about learning to play guitar.

    Can you explain this undertaking for those of us who were not around for the intital kickoff?


    • Tilly Bud September 17, 2011 at 09:47 #

      Yes. It’s all Sarsm’s fault; she talked me into it.

      Look to the top of the screen and you’ll see a 101/1001 page. It’s all in there.

    Each to their own… I couldn’t re-read HP – there’s so much else out there! So glad you enjoyed them – again!

    I can’t believe you’ve read the HP books that many times! I enjoyed them all (although I think the earlier ones were my favourites) and have re-read some of them and listened to them on tape and CD on family car journeys, but I don’t think I could read them 7 (or is it 8) times. You must be a very quick reader.

      I am. A lifetime spent devouring books.

    If you can blame us for the fact that you’re behind, then I feel so much better blaming you for the fact that I’m so far behind. Wow. I feel great! Thanks!

      I’m here to help 🙂 All I ask in payment is chocolate.

    That’s a great idea! I might have to pile up all of my scrapes of paper and journals to begin documenting it a neat orderly fashion on my computer!


    • Tilly Bud September 17, 2011 at 09:51 #

      Don’t do it! Buy a pretty box instead! Much easier 🙂

    Did you ever try the Philip Pullman books?

    Ah, Harry Potter 6 times? I still have to find time to read them a second time, so congratulations!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
