What nice/meaningful/fun/shiny! gift did you get for Christmas?

What did you give somebody, that they loved?

I had dinner with Alex's mother last night.

If I EVER complain about ANYTHING in my blessed, wonderful, in-comparison-PERFECT life again, I want all of you to promise me that you will hunt me down and smack me upside the head.  Repeatedly.

I just finished reading Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick and will be recommending it to everyone age 11 and up.  I hate sad books, but I liked this one, and can't stop thinking about it.   

This is pretty cool--another friend is having author Sonnenblick visit her school in a few weeks.  I am very jealous.  She says he is a very amiable and friendly guy, and she is actually having him and some colleagues to her house for dinner.  As an afterthought, she asked him if he has any food dislikes and he told her, "Oh, it's a good thing you asked because I am deathly allergic to shellfish."  I told her it would be hard to explain if YOU KILLED YOUR AUTHOR. 

I finished Jane Eyre and am so sorry I waited until now to read it.  For a classic it is very readable and it has aged well.  Thanks for shaming me into it, guys.

Back from Ohio.  A nice trip, but I'm very tired and very glad to be home.

Kate:  Want to do a three-day walk to raise money for breast cancer research?  We would walk 20 miles a day, then sleep in bubble tents.  We can choose from several cities to walk around.  It would be fun!

Me:  20 miles a day, huh?  Do you think the bubble tent have enough electricity for my blow dryer AND my straightener?  Wait, that wouldn't matter because after the first day I'd be DEAD.  

Me: Can't we just donate money, instead?

Kate:  You big baby.

I miss my Cincinnati friends so much.

All joking aside, it is a wonderful opportunity to raise money for cancer research and you can find more information here.  And you can just donate money.

I just finished reading The Pinhoe Egg by Diana Wynne Jones.  It was completely delightful and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It's up there at the top of my list of favorite DWJ books.  It made me very happy.
