Panic Room...Welcome Mina Naveen!
Okay, truthfully, it took me forever to try and think up a good beginning for my first post. I wanted to say something really pithy and fascinating, drawing you to me like that piper guy with the rats. Except I wouldn't want you to be rats, because that's gross and really unsanitary in large groups. But butterflies, or cookies, would be nice.
Anywho, once I had your attention I'd hit you with the one-two punch of my sarcastic and rapier like wit, leaving you stunned and totally under my spell. Fortunately for you, that isn't what happened. SIGH. Apparently I shall have to woo you to minion-hood. So be it.
The real reason I'm here is, in what was a completely sane (if somewhat dubious) decision on her part, my sister Moira has asked me to join the broads! I know, right! I seriously don't know what she was thinking.
My name is Mina Naveen, and I'll be the comedic and slightly not grown up one. I try to avoid books, movies and other activities that are tedious, boring and warranting of a notepad and slide rule to keep everything straight. I like things that are funny, that explode, are hot (accents and uniforms are bonus points!), and permanent press. I don't iron. I drink more coffee than the surgeon general recommends, and when I grow up I want to rule the world. I'm pretty sure it was my job in a past life. Oh, and I sing. Constantly.
Moira and I have a lot of the same tastes in books (and life goals). I have to say, however, that I do not plan on picking up Tolstoy anytime soon. I have nothing against it; I just want to be entertained. I have also never read Pride and Prejudice. Yes, thank you very much, I did just hear your gasp of womanly horror. I like to sit down with an uncomplicated book that makes me forget that the floor needs mopped and the kids are trying to bludgeon each other. Just a note for all of you with young, squabbling children - it doesn't get better. At 15, 13 and 12, I still have to hide the sharp objects and carry a whip and chair. But I digress.
My aim is to post some reviews and such soon. Hopefully, they they won't take as long as this to write! Type to you soon!
