Five Things I Love Today

1. Gardetto's Deli-Style Mustard Pretzels - so tasty, and only two grams of fat per serving

2. Black & Decker Mini Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe - I'm trying to lay off the Starbucks, since I've been going once and even (gulp) twice a day. So today I brewed some Starbucks Christmas Blend (my favorite!) at my desk and it was delicious.

3. Mini Artist's Model - I randomly bought one of those little artist's model people because I thought it was fun. Little did I know it'd turn out to be the most-used thing on my desk at work. You can shape it to be happy, mad, ready to kick something, whatever...lately, it's been ready to kick something.

4. - I bought three books today, and now I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival. I also spent quite a bit of time looking at the Amazon Kindle. I want one. Enough said.

5. Email - Right now I have two friends/relatives in the hospital: one is my grandpa (they're not sure what's wrong with him) and the other is a friend who is incredibly young (30-ish) who has been in a coma for a week due to E-coli! I love email because I'm getting constant, detailed updates about them both and about how well they're improving.

50 Books in 2008 List

Now that I'm up to book number 23 (ha-ha Emily!), my list is sort of taking up too much space on the side of my blog. So, I've created a new link instead that will take you to Bibliophil, a cool website where you can keep track of books you've read, or that you want to read. It's surprisingly extensive. I don't know if I can create a new list on Bibliophil, so instead my link takes you to the "Reviewed" page, and I'm only going to put books on that page that I've read this year. Enjoy!

This cute dog is Roxie, an adorable little redhead I know. Her owner got a new camera and is having a good time using it!
