Did you ever see the movie by Steven Spielberg? It was Christian Bale's debut. Anyway, this is the book that movie is based on.



Empire of the Sun by J. G. Ballard. It's about a British boy separated from his parents during the Japanese invasion of Shanghai. He is put into a prisoner camp and the book recounts his time during the war. Supposedly, the book is a novel but based on Ballard's real life memories. It's a very gritty, graphic book but fascinating in its own way. The movie version is really good too.

Oh :( Hmm... Do bettas mature when they are that age? A lot of people might know. Maybe her final coloration is coming in?

I love the balance between cold and hot. Warm bed, cold breeze through window. Love. Hot sun beating on my back. Ice cold wind blowing in my face. Love.

Well, they won't allow me to rent the textbook I want. It is much more inexpensive to rent it. The new one is 192.00 and it is a thin textbook too. I have to see if I can get it elsewhere for a lot cheaper.

Gotta scrounge me up some yummies. My stomach was growling all night.
