Today was kind of a neat day. Work didn’t take too terribly long for one thing, and I found out that I can reserve books at Borders online for store pick up. I picked up Queen Bees & Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman. That book is the basis for my newest favorite movie Mean Girls. It’s SO GOOD. Just a lot of insight into the world of cliques in high school and middle school. Defintely research for my books.
While I was at Borders, I came across a bunch of new books that I wanted to read, but couldn’t really afford. (FYI, Mother’s Day is coming up, so if you’re feeling particularly expansive and want to get something for a certain mommy named Ronni, gift cards to bookstores, please!). I went to the library and they had all but ONE of the books I want to read. I was plucking from the shelves left and right.
crimsonghost_oh has been spoiling me. First thing is that he bought me a new iPod. You guys may have read about me complaining about my old one and how it holds a charge for about three minutes. So, he got me a new one. Even though it holds 30 gigs of stuff, I am still being selective about what goes on there. I don’t want to spend all my time fast forwarding. I also dig the photo feature. It’s like a mini photo album! And it’s SO NICE not to have to worry about the thing quitting on me before I get the headphones to my ears.
Then he gave me his Best Buy Reward Zone certificates ($10), so I got I Spy Mystery. Cause I love I Spy, and I can’t wait to play it with Aidan.
I realized a bunch of work people—the cool ones—are on My Space. Good times.
Yesterday, Heather was telling me about how skinny I was and how good I look. That made me feel good. I have this particular shirt that’s incredibly flattering and I was wearing it yesterday. The funny thing is that I got the shirt years ago on clearance. I believe I was shopping with itskels when I got it.
I read The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. It’s a 500 page book, but I read it in an hour. It’s such a cool book because a lot of it is told in pictures rather than words. It was a neat story, made me tear up at the end. I got to meet Brian in February at the Children’s Literature Breakfast. I didn’t get a picture with him, but adamselzer did:
On Monday, I went to Bauer Street to get more of my stuff. Aidan broke my Mickey Mouse anniversary clock—just the dome, but still. My mommy got that for me for Christmas one year. I got a lot of clothes. I opened a suitcase that had been packed the whole time I lived there. Inside were several bikinis. Man, I remember when I used to wear bikinis. I had a silver one, a pink leather one, and loads of others.
Myrtle Beach 1998
So um… how about that hair? LOL. Yeah, cannot wear that ever again, ha haha. I did find a tankini that I might be able to pull off, though.
I found some other neat stuff too, like little notebooks, and purses with hidden treasures in them.
From Avril Lavinge’s new CD, I like the songs:
- Everything Back But You
- Keep Holding On
- I Don’t Have to Try
However, the explicit CD just sounds like the “explicit” words were overdubbed in, and not very well. Now, I did “borrow” a copy from
Some people I used to hang out with a lot are having a mock wedding this weekend, for the sake of photographs. (I guess they didn’t get pictures at their first wedding). They picked Aidan to be the “ringbearer” and got him a tux. Last night was his final fitting. Chris sent me a camera phone picture:
Isn’t he too cute???
