From Sara HoweÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s site:
Science Fiction Book Club listed the most significant SF novels between 1953-2006.
Bold the ones you have read, strike through the ones you read and hated, italicize those you started but never finished and put a star next to the ones you love.

Ok so Amy tagged me for this meme the other day. You have to write a blog about 10 odd, facts or habits about yourself. Then tag 10 people and visit there comments and tell them they’ve been tagged… I’ll just let those who choose to, consider themselves “tagged.”
1. I have been a science fiction fan for as long as I can remember. It probably stemmed from my father, since I watched whatever he did. This was mainly science fiction, action, and kung fu shows.
2. On the other hand, there are very few dramas that I like. If the point of the movie is to make you think, cry, or feel sorry for someone; I’m not going to like it. And I’m going to absolutely hate it if it doesn’t have a happy ending. Titanic? Hated it.
3. I’m 6′ tall. I take after my father, who’s 6’2″. I remember when I was in high school, finally realizing that my father wasn’t the average height for a man. I was disappointed, to say the least.

Tag: The name game
Crystal tagged me for this Name Game:
1. YOUR REAL NAME:
2. YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (first three letters of your name, plus izzle)
3. YOUR Ã¢â‚¬Å“FLY Guy/GirlÃ¢â‚¬Â NAME: (first initial of first name, first three of your last)
Asch. Sounds like someoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about to sneeze.

Another meme taken from Carl :
Science Fiction, Fantasy or Horror?
Science Fiction. I know you never would have guessed. Though I do love a lot of fantasy series as well.
Hardback or Trade Paperback or Mass Market Paperback?
Hardbacks, only if I plan on keeping the book or rereading it several times. Otherwise, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d rather not spend the money. I usually go with mass market, cheaper and smaller (to fit in the purse).
Heinlein or Asimov?
Asimov. The one Heinlein novel I tried reading, didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go so well. But IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve enjoyed the few works of Asimov that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve read.

Dolce Bellezza passed along a fun meme. The idea is to be given a letter, hers was “D”, and then post ten things you like beginning with that letter. At the end of the post, she said she would give interested readers a letter of their own. I landed the letter “S”.
So, here are 10 things beginning with the letter S that I like:
1. Science Fiction Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Hence, my moniker. It all started when I saw Star Wars for the first time when I was only 2 years old. If my parents only knewÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
2. Sketching Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Otherwise, I would have never majored in Art in college. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always loved drawing. But in 6th grade, I drew my first portrait. It was of Spock out of a TV Guide. And I realized it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t half bad. Thus, began my love of drawing faces. All because of Star Trek!

Taking this meme from Carl.
The Books YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve Been Planning To Read For Ages
Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley
Dracula, by Bram Stoker Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I started it, but never finished for some reason.
How Now Shall We Live?, by Chuck Colson Ã¢â‚¬â€œ ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been sitting at my desk at work for a few years. I think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve only read a few chapters.

I was tagged by Christine a couple days ago, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m just now getting around to posting it. And since I’m even more sick today with some bug (most likely just Laryngitis), this was the perfect little thing to post today so I don’t have to think too hard.
Four jobs I’ve had:
1. ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Department at my local Library
2. Accounts Payable Ã¢â‚¬â€œ all through college
3. Graphics Design for a missions organization Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I got burned out in less than two years.
4. Currently – Proposal Analyst for a Wellness Company Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I can barely explain itÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ask.
Four places I’ve lived:
1. Muncie, IN
2. Marion, IN
3. Pine Valley, CA
4. Fishers, IN

For my third entry in the 2006 G.I.F.T. Challenge, I read The Christmas Candle, by Max Lucado. This was a touching, short story about faith and miracles. Every quarter of a century an angel visits a candle makerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s family, touching a certain candle and miracles happen.
While very short, this was a great little Christmas story that provides more meaning to the season than the usual stories. Max Lucado remains one of my favorite authors for his style of writing and the depth and insight he gives to everyday life.
