9 books in 13 days

Yes, my Kindle is everything I hoped for and more. It kept me occupied during my trip to Orlando in our non-park hours.

I've now read nine books in the past 13 days.

"What nine books?", you might ask.

"The Twilight series", I might reply.

"But there are only four books in the series."

"Very true, but it's nine books if you read books one, two and three twice and book four three times that adds up to nine."

Also, this is a conversation that I just had with my hubby:

[16:52] me: I finished book 4 again
[16:53] hubby: Ah good
[16:54] hubby: Are you sated or do you need another lance?
[16:54] me: I might have read the first couple of pages of book 1...
[16:58] hubby: PUT DOWN THE CRACK PIPE!

I might need an intervention before long. I have a benchmark though! Our friend that introduced us to the series sent me this email after I sent him one complaining to him that I blamed him for my need to read the series multiple times:

I've read the entire series three times.

Please burn this email after reading.

As if I'd burn it!! I've only read book 4 three times...

Hey, next time any of you see/talk to Lisa, be sure to ask her if she has her car keys.

'Cause she might not have them...

So much to say, so little time to say it in!

I had a fantastic time in Minnesota last weekend. My cousin's wedding was wonderful and she looked so beautiful. I have bunches of pictures from the day but I haven't had the time this week to upload them.

I also finished a metric assload of projects, another chicken, a garterlac cloth, a miniature sweater, a baby blanket... but I haven't had a chance to sit down and write anything about them.

I delivered the baby blanket this morning, that is another post to write as well!

The Kindle is fantastic. Again, I haven't had bunches of time to spend poking around it, but I sent myself some preview chapters (you can download chapter 1 of any Kindle book for free to see if you want to buy the whole book) and I actually managed to read a couple of them. I might actually buy one full book tonight so that I have more than just one chapter to read during the long ass flight(s) between San Jose and Orlando.

Yes, I'm off into the wild blue yonder again. Next stop Mickey and my Mom! (Hubby and I and two friends are going to cavort with Mickey for 5 days and then I have 2 days with my mom, hooray). I'm likely going to be paying for internet access while I'm in Florida but I make no guarantees I'll be posting until I'm back from VACATION.

Be good, internets. I'll miss you.

On the Road Again...

I'm off in 8 hours again to Minneapolis, Minnesota (that's when my flight leaves SFO, so no, I'm not getting much sleep tonight). I'm going to attend my cousin's wedding there, so I will get to see the bunches of relatives I have living in the Twin Cities area. I'm renting a car, and I have hopes of being able to show hubby my bumpkin roots in rural Wisconsin but I'm not sure when I would wheedle that in. It's about a 90 minute drive from Minneapolis, but I think it would be kind of fun to see the area after so many years. We'll see what we can see!

Anyways, I'm off to pack and sleep. Hopefully with more sleeping than packing. I'm back on Monday night when I'll hopefully have my Kindle I ordered today (that shipped today too!) waiting for me.

Yes, the chicken pattern is going with me. The bride is getting two (she'll get the Vegas chicken plus the new one in progress) as a side gift, her real wedding present is going to be a Best Buy gift card.
