To fix this problem without a humidifier, I've stuck a large pot of water on the stove. To make it more fun I've added a few cinnamon sticks, some cloves, and some black peppers. I'm debating adding the last of my cardamom, but I want to save that for something special.
The apartment smells gorgeous! I'm happy.
Since the husband works all night tonight (probably way past midnight. Sigh. Yet another year that I don't get kissed at midnight on New Years Eve. Ah well.), I am making tonight as comfy as possible for me. I've got tons of tea (Masala Chai, Mango Mambo, and some lovely Jasmine Pearls that are probably for later in the evening), some great tea biscuits, and lots of ideas of things to write. It's going to be a calm New Years - with tacos when he gets home.

I couldn't answer the first question. How pathetic is that?
- If you had a ton of cash, what sort of designer clothes would fill your wardrobe?
- Stella McCartney
- Jean-Paul Gaultier
Stella McCartney had a silver lame bathing suit. I moved on.
Versace wasn't bad, but huuuge shoulders.
DKNY was just fine - I think. I'd put things together differently than the site, but that's probably because I know nothing about fashion.
And just in case Anyone is curious:
|You Belong in Rome|
You're a big city girl with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian men - could life get any better?
I'm sorry I'm slow lately - I have a horrible cold and I am just not feeling very witty or talkative at all. But I wanted to share a tale of stupidity with you all, so here I am - blogging.
I went to Best Buy today. I know what you're thinking, "Best Buy? Two days before Christmas? Two days before Chanukah? LibrarianPirate, you are CRAZY!” And I will give you that point. But I went to Best Buy well aware of the two holidays that happen in two days. Well aware that Winter Solstice and Kwanzaa are nearby (although I have no idea what days they are on). Well aware that pretty much every one out there is celebrating something, from Festivus to Boxing Day. I went because I needed to get something and I went prepared for the lines.
(sorry – I’m done ranting. I’m going to go curl up with my Affrin and my bottle of Tylenol Sore Throat and sleep.)

I just discovered How to knit a sweater FOR A WEE PENGUIN. Now - I don't knit, I crochet ... but I am a big fan of all things fun and crafty, and I abso-freaking-lutely LOVE PENGUINS.
So I had to share, because penguins are adorable.
Have a great night!

Cute Overload ;)
People send in super cute pictures
and this blog posts them
and then I go and see them
and it's bad
Rule of cuteness #7: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute.
Don't waste too much time
edit: I have just discovered the adorablog as well. Both of them are totally up My Pink Shoe's alley. SUPER CUTENESS!

In other news, Giles Coren won the 13th annual Literary Review award for Bad Sex in Fiction. Apparently he beat off some stiff competition (Mom - if you get the double entendre, I don't want to know about it!) to win the prize.
The Bad Sex in Fiction awards always amuse me. I was especially amused last year when Tom Wolfe was such a bad sport about it. He claims they didn't notice the irony. I say - just because it's ironic doesn't mean it isn't Bad Sex in Fiction!
But that's just me.
So to recap: Yay for links! Hehe for bad sex in literature! Boo for some people not being able to laugh at themselves.

Anyway - I have been eying their Holiday Pack for awhile, but I just couldn't justify spending ten bucks on five sodas when I was probably going to not like two of them anyway. So - today I found them on clearance for seven bucks. For some reason I can justify that more. Someday in the near future, my husband and I are going to have a tasting party (just the two of us) and we're going to taste them. All of them. And it will be super fun. Maybe. I'll let you know just how super fun it is.
Anyway - I am here to apologize and to try and set things right. Today is the last day of my first semester at Library Science School. After today I am actually going to have free time (WOOO!)! I promise to update - and update a lot. My hope is to update daily, but at the very least I will update semi-daily. You guys are going to get somewhat sick of my updating.
I need to go back to class now (yay for 15 minute breaks!), but stay tuned for more!
An updated list of links on the side of the page (something I've been meaning to do forever).
A post about what actually happened on my two Thanksgivings!
A discussion about Library Science School!
An in depth look into my foray into NaNoWriMo.
And much MUCH MORE!
