Good Books

Lately, when it is slow at work, instead of focussing on wedding stuff, I’ve been addicted to GoodReads. Good Reads is an online community like Flickr for people to share what they are reading with their friends. On the site you can keep track of what you are reading, when you finished it and how you would rate/review the book. Its addictive, and I love having a chance to go back and think about my favorite books and why I love them.  Feel free to check it out and add me as a friend!

Mid Week Non Musings

Nothing is really going through my head other than the fact that I am broke! So , I decided to just jot down what I’m making for dinner today

Blackened Tilapia: Following directions from spice pack with
Southwestern Salad: Combine, 1 can black beans, 1 can corn, 1 red bell pepper, 1/4- 1/2 red onion, 1-2 jalapeno peppers with olive oil/vegetable oil, cumin, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and garnish with fresh cilantro

Easy and Healthy! I need to go on a crash diet. There is talk of a day trip to the beach this weekend, must lose water weight by then…….grrrrr……..

Must finish Time Travellers Wife by tonight as well, since I have my first book club meeting tomorrow. I am pretty stoked about that! I am freeing my mind from all expectations, so I can go in with an open mind and really enjoy myself.

Back to reality

New Acquisitions : Durham County Library card. Its bronze and actually looks pretty hip for a library card. Its just too bad that my local branch is really small and lacking in good collections. Other than my mysteries and fluff requirements, I will have to depend on Duke Libraries.

One of the coolest things I did after I got my library card and checked out books was to go to this cool cafe, I ‘ve been meaning to check out forever and read while eating lunch. Oh it felt so good. Sometimes I think, I could get used to being a lady of leisure, but maybe if i had to do it indefinitely, it would drive me and everyone around me absolutely insane.

Watched Little Black Book in the afternoon. Better than I thought, not exactly a romantic comedy , so i don’t know, why they marketed it like that. I think it would have done much better if they had marketed it as more of a dark coming of age story. Brittany Murphy is awesome. She looks like an air head barbie…but she is actually funny in a “laugh with her” way , instead of “laugh at her” way.

Spent the rest of the day hanging out and later drank some guiness with J, later at night.

All in all…great Sick day

Family Christmas

Two new acquisitions for the week

Julia Alavarez – Something to Declare

Ann Patchett – The Patron Saint of Liars

ANTM Update: I can’t believe they eliminated Norelle. The girl left a lot to be desired in the brains department, but I thought she photgraphed well and was genuinely nice and naive unlike Miss Eva and the rest. Can’t wait for next week.

Early Christmas in Richmond

Additional Christmas present- Leather Jacket….purr!

On a quest to be a waitress. Idea spurned by J, back to being broke.
