Today, I found myself killing some time in the bookstore. I was delighted to be there, but was also ecstatic because:
I had to laugh because my brother sings this to his beautiful black lab
(PS, my brother turned 30 last week. I think I was more freaked out by it than he was!!)
. I found two chick lit books
The Gatecrasher by Madeleine Wickham, who is also Sophie Kinsella. Did anyone know that was a pen name? News to me. Also, if you don’t know who Sophie Kinsella is, that means you haven’t read Shopaholic books. Shame.

So I’m making myself a busy little bee. Do you think I’ve found enough hobbies to busy myself with? Believe it or not, this pile is without one category: cooking. I’m dying to become a better cook. I hope the hubster doesn’t mind a little experimentation

On another, unrelated note (because after all, this post is as ADD as they come), our dog is getting
This big girl has doubled in size in the last month. I can’t even believe it!!
Question of the Day
What’s your favorite kind of book?
I’ve always loved “pink” (read: chick lit) books, but lately have been really into the how-tos/information based reference books. I like to teach myself. And usually fail miserably. But that’s how you learn, right?
