[insert guitar riff here]

1. Well, I certainly left y’all on a happy note for a few days, didn’t I? Sorry…I promise, I’m not really that mopey these days, but that stuff is going on and it sort of hit me all at once and out came that post.

2. Recommended: Rain boots (seriously, when I wear mine I feel like I can take over the world or jump in puddles like a small child), Daytrotter.com (SO GOOD), the B&N Meet the Writers podcast (extremely interesting, and they did an interview with Mario Lopez, of all people), making scones (very satisfying, especially since they’re really easy and make a good breakfast if you’re in a hurry), and this obscure TV show called Lost on ABC (which I am scrambling to catch up with–no spoilers, or my boots and I will be coming to kick your butt).

3. Not a whole lot else going on–I have a giant stack of reading I should be doing (some of it’s extracurricular, but still) and I’m learning PHP (which is kind of terrifying), and watching a lot of episodes of Lost on DVD. Some stuff fermenting in my brain that will show up here eventually, I promise. And the requisite cleaning my apartment, sleeping, and consuming lots of hot beverages. I’m working in my church’s nursery for the first time this Sunday (with the babies–very excited). Something about a football game that afternoon, too (WHO DAT?). Should be fun.

4. Reader survey, since we haven’t done one in a while:
a) What are you reading these days? (I know I ask that a lot, but I feel like it’s my job.)
b) What was the first album you bought this year?
c) Where was the last new place you discovered in your city?
d) What’s something you’re looking forward to?
e) What was the last thing you cooked?
f) What do you spend your Saturday mornings doing?

    The album is amazing! I love it and would recommend it. Very folksy…(clearly)
