Living in the Leftie Mirror

This is a journal dedicated to everything related to left-handedness. My mother is left-handed but was taught as a child to write and work with her right hand since it was considered incorrect not to do so. As an adult she discovered an interest in her own left-handedness and the phenomenon in general, as well as the psychological consequences of the once widely practiced reeducation of left-handed people.
This journal is meant as a present for her. Tell me (and her) about your experiences as a left-handed person or with friends, family members or colleagues who are lefties. What do you have to say about the subject? How does your own left-handedness (or that of a person close to you) affect your life? Were you also forced to use your right hand as a child even though you were more comfortable with your left hand? Share your thoughts in any possible way!
A few rules for journaling:1) Use as many pages as you want for your entry, but don’t alter anyone else’s work.2) I suggest you relist this journal on your inventory immediately after marking it received (since you’ll already be on Bookmooch anyway :)) – this will make the journal available as soon as possible for other moochers, and remind you to make an entry. Don’t worry about time pressure – you can always tell a moocher that it will take you a little longer to send out their book.3) When the book is full, please contact me (Hannah; BMID: hanhel), and I will mooch it back to you. If you are having trouble getting the book back out to someone, feel free to contact me as well, I will try to find a solution.

 

The World’s a Beer Label

I have a Macke — a habit, a problem, an obsession. I collect beer labels from beers I’ve never collected from before or whatever I have when traveling. Therefore, I ask you, Moocher, to add your label to the collection. Your entry should include a short description, possibly a description of time and place. Maybe a dissertation on the beer that was once behind the label. All I request is the label and something from you: a picture, words, a story. You’re the journalers.
You could even write about the trip that led you to that beer label. Or maybe pronounce on your hometown’s beer and its label.
Overall, good luck, good mooching. And:When this journal is complete please reserve it for me (and notify me) (userID: wheelerc) and I will mooch it back from you. If you are unable to complete the journal within time or have any issues with it please contact me and I’ll mooch it back again.

Second Homeland Recipe Book

The Second Homeland Recipe Book: Please put in your second-homeland recipe. It could be a recipe(s) you found while in your second homeland, it could be a recipe from your (first) homeland that has conquered the members of your new. My second homeland is Dresden, Germany. And as a baker, I found that a few of mine imported, American baked goods (which lacked the proper words for translation) were not just more of a hit in Germany than they were in my first homeland, the US, but they won over the hearts and stomachs of the Germans. Therefore, please, share with us your second homeland recipes.

This little notepad is waiting to be filled with your favourite distractions. Tell us all about what you do, why you do it, and how long it takes you before you get around to doing what you actually need to do. Use as many pages and be as artistic as you want, just don’t alter anyone else’s work.

BE HONEST! What TV Shows Are Set To Record On YOUR DVR or TIVO Right Now? EVERYTHING! No Matter If You Forgot To Remove It Or Not! NO FIBBING!!!

BMJournal-BE HONEST! What TV Shows Are Set To Record On YOUR DVR or TIVO Right Now? EVERYTHING! No Matter If You Forgot To Remove It Or Not! NO FIBBING!!!… This should prove to be interesting and informative. I am a bad one to leave shows that I know were cancelled on my DVR… I guess in hopes that they might come back someday, or for a maybe a rerun or two. I have my favorites that I just have to see! I rarely watch them at the time they come on anymore. I can zip thru the commercials that way when I watch them on the DVR. How did I live before the DVR? So, I am always looking for a new recommendation or two and I thought this might be a great way to do it. So turn on your TV and look at your DVR or TIVO. Tell the truth! Do you (like me) have RuPauls DragRace set to record faithfully? Is Survivor or Dancing With the Stars your dirty little secret? Enquiring minds want to know! So give us a “Tell All” on your DVR or TIVO. And do it in anyway that pops into that twisted little brain of yours! (Don’t worry, mine is littler and twisteder!) Have fun with it.Here I go, sending out another bmjournal. It is a thin, smallish book. It is only 5″x7″ inches and just has about 60 pages in it and very light. Don’t keep it more than a week or two. It will get around quickly, and be inexpensive to mail also.Get wild and crazy! I don’t care. My journals are always rated “R”. Just have fun. Get as creative as you would like, add a drawing, write a poem or a thought. Anything and everything goes! From collages, photos, ACEO, altered art, scrapbooking, & quotes, to anything else that “floats your boat”. Please stick to two pages (a double spread) but if you just have to go to 4 pages, okay 6 if you really have that much on your TIVO, (if you need more than that you didn’t get this journal as you are spending your time watching TV) in the journal per person- I would like as many people as possible to share! (But if you have ever seen a journal I have done, you know how I get around that!) Feel free to use the triple page inside covers too!I left the front & back covers incomplete, so everyone can add one or two items as a collective artwork.
Please be respectful. Don’t write on the same page of someone else’s contribution, and don’t change or add to anyone’s entry. (Except, of course, for the cover art work.) Just be courteous of others.If you feel up to it, share something about you…as little or as much as you want! It would be nice to put your name, state or country, date your work & use your bookmooch info. If you do Artist Trading Cards send one to me via my contact info in the book and I will gladly send you one of mine.
If you mooch this book you are stating that you are willing to ship it anywhere in the world. No matter what your setting are on BookMooch.Please, when this book is full return it to me by listing it on bookmooch and I will mooch it back from you. Or mailing it to me. Thanks!Cathy Hogue (aka Velcrodog)

Who Do You Mooch the Most Journals From and Who Mooches the Most Journals From You

This journal is the “BMJournal – Who Do You Mooch the Most Journals From and Who Mooches the Most Journals From You”.

This is going to be interesting. Each person should make a 6 page entry. (Hint: If that scares you- write big!) Always refer to the people and yourself, by the bookmooch ID, no addresses or phone numbers or email addresses please, nor names of kids or husbands.

FIRST TWO PAGES-The person that mooches from you the most…. WHO is that person? What kind of an idea do you have of him or her? Are they serious or jovial? How old are they? What job do they have? What do they look like? What is their house like? Do you think they have a family? What kind of pets? Pull a picture off the internet of what you think they look like. Etc. etc. etc. Take 2 pages and draw from what you know and what you think.

SECOND TWO PAGES-Then take a 2 pages and talk about yourself, a picture, a short bio, the answers to the above questions and other information about you. Don’t make it too personal, keep it safe, and leave out your social security number, lol!IMPORTANT – NOW, PAPERCLIP the pages describing YOU together so the next person who gets the book can read it WITHOUT READING THE REAL BIO’S OF EVERYONE, just the imaginary ones. That is until they have done entering their own entry and the “Mooches from you” and “You mooch from” entries. Then they can go back and see if their “frequent moocher” is in one of the paper clipped pages. NO cheating! Honor System!

THIRD TWO PAGES-The person that mooches from you the most…. WHO is that person? What kind of an idea do you have of him or her? How old are they? Are they married? Do they have kids? What job do they have? What do they look like? What is their house like? Do you think they have a family? What kind of pets? Just the same as the first two pages. Etc. etc. etc. Take 2 pages and draw from what you know and what you think. Pull a picture off the internet of what you think they look like.

Here I go, sending out another bmjournal. It is a thin, small spiral bound book. It is only 7″x5″ inches and just has about 78 pages in it and it’s light. Don’t keep it more than a week or two.
