Right now, I'm reading:
Nancy Drew and rereading Not quite what i was planning!

My favorite story of all time is:
oohh.... i don't know. I love every thing aforementioned, plus more!!! It is freakin hard to pick a fave!

In bed I like to read:
Nancy Drew, Sarah Dessen books, My Sisters Keeper, basically mysteries and fiction for teens- teens have THE best books! Oh, and My new fave book series revolving around 6 words... :-)

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
FML, ItMadeMyDay, Twitter..

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Forgetting something or messing up.
