  1. I really like the word Nettle! Sounds like a name…I think my favorite thing this week has been reading, (I know, I know, I should be writing… 😛 ) I’m re-reading the Lunar Chronicles, and I love them as much as the first time! ❤

  2. I really like Jocular. I think that describes me a little bit. I make a lot of jokes, but they’re pretty bad ones. xD Softball has made me the most happy this week. I really enjoy playing it, and it just makes me happy. 🙂 And you’ve been tagged the 20 TYMNKAM Tag! It’s abbreviated, but that’s because the name is SO long. 😉 Youcan check it out on my blog.
