Ok, I have a lot of scarves.  I need to enter a 12-step program, I admit it.

But now I'm using them as decoration.

Pretty! )

Ok, I admit it.  I am addicted to purple sweaters.  I have...a few.

Oh, and if anyone wants to hear Terry Pratchett's Printz Honor acceptance speech, it's here.

checkers65477: (WTF Orlando) have let me down. Badly. Smocking? Seriously? Seriously? Everyone repeat after me, please.

"Once I am over the age of ten, I swear I will not wear smocking."

Thank you.

Am I being unreasonable?

Also, WTH?

How many have your name?

Do they mean not even I have my name, or I'm the only one? Hmm...

This post is long overdue, and many have heard some of my stories by now, but I promised a post about the ALA Annual Conference and here it is.

Tomorrow I'll continue with tall tales of the YA Author Breakfast, the Newbery Banquet and the Printz Reception.

You know the saying "comfort food" that refers to those foods that make us feel comfortable and good?  It occured to me today that I have comfort clothing, too.  Certain things that I wear on a day like today--the first day back to work after a long weekend, a rainy, dreary, January-doldrums day.  When I got ready for work, I reached for my favorite, ancient cashmere sweater that I got on sale many years ago just after Christmas.  It's so soft and comfy, and I don't care that it has some tiny coffee spots on it that I haven't gotten around to trying to clean.  It's a pale blue and I always feel good when I wear it.

Now, if I'm at home my comfort clothes are a pair of gym pants and a sweatshirt.

What are your comfort clothes like?

  • Cleaning the bathroom to within an inch of its life.

  • The spider has settled in nicely.  I'm keeping my eye on him.  We seem to have a mutual respect for one another at this point.

  • Once you buy a Victoria's Secret bra, there is no going back.  You'll never buy another.  Proper foundations are important to any girl's figure!

  • Traitor's Moon is very, very slow going.

  • Happy Birthday, Anne!  Have a wonderful day. *sends love*
