Books in a series should always have numbers clearly printed on their spines. This way, you can make sure you’re checking out the correct books in the correct order before you even leave the library – instead of getting home and discovering, a week later on Sunday afternoon, that you checked out books one and three instead of one and two.
I’m a cranky cuss lately, aren’t I.
Also, how awesome is online shopping? You guys, I have already done 3/4 of my Christmas shopping from my bed, in my pajamas. We will totally become the fat people in the floaty chairs from Wall-E, and this is how it starts.
Greetings from scenic Jeremiah, in the heart of Letcher County, Kentucky!
Don’t blink or you’ll miss it.
It’s Thanksgiving today, but hasn’t felt much like it. We’re at Grandma’s house but the aunts and uncles and cousins are coming tomorrow and we’re doing the big spread then. We had the funeral for my friend Sarah’s mom this morning (which was beautifully done) and the rest of the day we’ve just been chillaxing and watching Grandma run around with her hair on fire trying to get stuff cooked or ready to be cooked tomorrow. She doesn’t actually enjoy cooking and all the prep that has to go into hosting Thanksgiving, but no matter how hard we try to convince her to let us do it at our house she will not give in. I guess we’ll just have to try again for next year.
In other news, my sister received The Hunger Games trilogy for her birthday, so I decided it was the perfect time for me to read it too. I finished the first book today and I’m stuck on it – even if it is technically young adult fiction, everybody should read it. As I read it takes me back to Ender’s Game, Brave New World, and Uglies, which I think is just because it’s set in a futuristic, dystopic society where the children are expected to do things that children shouldn’t have to do. But I liked all those books so it makes sense that I would like this one too.
And you know what kind of just hit me? It’s that time again. You know what time I’m talking about. Yeah, that’s right … Christmas music time. Hmm, I think Josh Groban’s Noel will be singing me to sleep tonight.
In conclusion! There are four Saturdays left until Christmas, which means you have exactly one month of shopping days in which to buy my present. Happy Turkey Day!
