I can't believe it is January. It is so warm and pretty outside. I came in at noon today, top down, wanting to just keep driving. I know coldness is coming soon, but not today. Makes me wish there were some sort of outdoor work to be done at the library. Maybe I could offer to wash the Director's car. I would totally do it on a day like today :-)
I don't have anything too interesting to share today. How unusual! haha! I can update you on my reading and stuff like that I s'pose. I have actually had really good reading luck lately. My last three have been complete winners. First, I read one I had originally picked up for Kick Back Dude. When he didn't get to it quick enough I called 'me first'. That one was JPod. It had some of Coupland's over-the-topiness, but it made me laugh the way it captured the creative ways that people think of to waste time in the office. Next, I read a book that I had meant to get to, but it was always checked out, and then I forgot. Anyway, it turned up on the shelf, so I got a chance to read the very sweet, touching The Year of Pleasures. Now, I am near the end of Running with Scissors, another one long on my list. It seems the library copy is gone for good, so Kick Back Dude ended up buying a copy and after reading it passed it on. I'm so glad that at least one other person in my family is a pleasure reader!
I recommend all three of these books enthusiastically. Oh, and if you need something pretty to listen to please try Rabbit Fur Coat by Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins.
