* Saw a bumper sticker this morning when I was dropping off the kiddos. "Gone Crazy...Back Soon." Loved it! Might need to get myself one for the bulletin board above my desk.
*If you're unable to make any of my signings (see sidebar) and would like an autographed bookplate for your copy of Truly, Madly just send your snail mail addy to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you one.
* Open letter to Mother Nature:
Please send sunshine as soon as possible. I don't even care if it's cold. Just some sun would be nice for my mental health.
PS: Love your work.
*I spent over $100 dollars on a calculator last night. Doesn't that just seem wrong? I'm still having sticker shock, but my son needed it for school and you know how that goes. Oh and the calc came with a USB cable! I am SO behind the times.
*I've also been shoe shopping, which is honestly the only kind of shopping I truly love (well, besides office supplies [calcs don't count!]), but sadly the shoes were not for me but for my daughter. She has a winter semi-formal coming up. Can I just say finding a fancy flat or a fancy kitten heel is nearly impossible (she doesn't like high heels)? Almost turned me against shoe shopping altogether. Almost. We finally found a pair at Famous Footwear. Whew. They're the cutest satin ballet slipper with a little bow that matches her dress. Now another challenge: to chaperone the dance or not. Mwa-ha-ha.
*The (gently) used book giveaway starts next week. Be sure to check back to get your hands on some great books.
How about your bits and pieces? Have you seen any bumper stickers lately you love, want to have a heart to heart with Mother Nature, gripe about the cost of things that kids are required to have for school, or found a pair of shoes you love lately?
