I WANT TO BE HERE
A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

Books. That's why I'm happy. Books.
Saying I got nothing is not completely true. Not that anyone asked me...but at any given moment I can take off on a topic like you wouldn't believe. Okay that's probably not fair to even mention to the people who read this blog. You guys already know I can go on and on about something or derail and go off topic pretty much at the drop of a hat. Although, believe it or not, I do try NOT to do that.
This is actually a post I started a week ago before I was felled by whatever it was that felled me. Anyway, I wanted to tell you about a couple of good books I read.
With my head a bit clearer I can see in retrospect that I really should have insisted on the antibiotics last week when I went to the doctor. I shrugged and said "okay" when she prescribed Nasonex.
This is Danica Patrick. Guess what she did? She won the Indy Japan 300 making her the FIRST woman to win an IndyCar event. You can read more about it here and here.

I've never been so happy to see a week end. Got lots to do today to get ready for Shmoo's 18th birthday BBQ and party. It's tomorrow and I've got close to nothing done. In case I've never mentioned it before (you wish) being sick sucks. Praise be we are only having around 3o-35 people not the almost 200 Lori over at Let's Gab is having for her son's Bar Mitzvah. Ho-lee! After reading about Lori's guest list I felt pretty good about my informal little shindig.
HUNTER'S SALVATION by Shiloh Walker. Copyright July 2007. Read an excerpt here. Second installment of Keishon's TBR Day Challenge.
Got some? Inspriation? Got any spare in the basement, attic or closet? Would you please send it my way since I have to write my TBR Day post and a post for Reader's Gab this week? The well is empty I tell you...EMPTY!
Something completely different for me. I'm going to get right to the point. Yeah, don't faint, it might not happen again for a long time.
I don't remember who tagged me. It's been that sort of week. But I found this in my edits and was in the mood so here's my one word meme:
Okay, alright I'll own up that I wasn't the best little blogger this week, but I checked my google reader last night and I didn't see all those posts at BOOK BINGE otherwise I wouldn't have missed linking to the Mary Margret Daughtridge post about SEALS and her new book SEALed with a Kiss. *sigh*
Several people have already mentioned this book on their blog and websites. But I figured what the heck, if one more person buys the book and money gets donated to Equality Now then it's all good. What is written below I've taken from the Nothing but Red wordpress site.
“Because it’s no longer enough to be a decent person. It’s no longer enough to shake our heads and make concerned grimaces at the news. True enlightened activism is the only thing that can save humanity from itself. I’ve always had a bent towards apocalyptic fiction, and I’m beginning to understand why. I look and I see the earth in flames. Her face was nothing but red.”- Joss Whedon, May 20 2007

I'm not dead in a ditch.
I'm talking swimming people. Swimming. Today a milestone. Literally. I swam a little more than a mile today. 72 lengths of a 25 yard pool. If you're wondering, 68 lengths is the magic number so I swam the mile with a little to spare.
Yes, I have a three-day weekend. Which when I think about it is sort of crazy since I had to work until almost 7 p.m. last night so I could be off today. It's Shmoo's last day of Spring Break and even GG took a day off. The original plan was for a trip to the Magic Kingdom. You many have noticed we like hanging out there. However we decided to do some shopping and have a lazy day instead. I'm all over that one. It's nice to slow things down a bit.
It's not that I'm quitting on the mini-reviews with my list, I'm just short on time this month. I'm working on a grant for work. It's something I've never done before, grant writing, so I'm preoccupied with it. Besides, I talked quite a bit about the books this month. So, I'm going to steal Nath's format and give grades on each book instead. This grading thing is sort of momentous here at NOBODY ASKED ME because I've never done it before. *ahem* Drum roll maestro, please...

So I should be posting my March reading list. I will. But, I'm going to do it tomorrow. Why you ask? Because those fab babes over at Book Binge are highlighting the incomparable Linda Howard and put up some poll questions. I decided to answer their poll right here at home so I can think a little bit about them and blather on if I get a yen to.
