getting ready for work with the dog

To Sherry:
"Quit licking off my deodorant!"
"No, Sherry!"
"Stop it, Sherry!"
"No, Sherry!  Underwear are bad!"
"Dammit, Sherry!  I'm trying to put on my shoe!"

My dogs make me.

Yep, I'm in a dress.

This is but a teaser of the awesomeness to come.  I was honored to be a bridesmaid in the wedding of my friends Andrea and Josh on 04Oct2011.  Doesn't Andrea look gorgeous?

Half-Price Books

Bookstores and I are old friends.  Cheap bookstores and I are really good friends who can't see each other very often because we go a little crazy.  I had been able to keep my lustful ways in check over the years by steering clear of the thrift store book shelves, only stealing a glance periodically.  I had only been into Half-Price Books once before Saturday, having recognized it as one of those naughty stores where I could get a lot of books for relatively little money.  "Half-price, that means I can get two!"  It was like going into the grocery store when you're hungry.  I did not dare look at the records.

How do you spend $50 on used books?  It was the big, purple eco-bag that put me over the top, no doubt.  I needed something to bring all the books home in, right?

I shan't list all of the books I bought, as I do actually have a job I need to get to (and clothes to put on), but I will say that the first book I've decided to read is remarkable so far.  I'm only a few chapters in, but what is really interesting so far is the author: Theodora Keogh.  She was a granddaughter of Theodore Roosevelt and only wrote for a short time in the early 50s and 60s.  I'm reading My Name is Rose.  Go check out her Wiki.

To the pants, away!
