Hodge Podge

Totally random mix of thoughts here ... enjoy!

So ... there are tons of incredible giveaways going on right now! I won't even try to list the all ones I've seen recently, but I did want to share about Crystal's Birthday giveaway. She's giving away a customized blog design. Whoop! Pretty incredible prize!!

I'm in a bit of a reading slump. Lots going on at work, which means lots of reading and editing at work. I'm guessing that has a smidge to do with it. This too shall pass, and there's always another day for reading, right?!

One of my favorite things about blogging/reviewing has been discovering some really great blogs. If you haven't read Jody Hedlund's blog, you should check it out. She has a knack for expressing her thoughts on writing / blogging / publicity / publishing issues. Fascinating, I tell you. Plus, I really enjoy all the dialogue and thoughtful comments that others leave.

I've been somewhat obsessively watching reruns of Dawson's Creek. That may also be contributing to my reading slump.

Hubs and I went to the gym Monday night. As I walked in the door, I realized that it was PIZZA NIGHT. Yes, AT THE GYM!!! Apparently, the gym sponsors pizza night once a month. (They also have donuts/bagels once a month.) I think it's totally self-serving ... to keep people overweight and force them to keep using the gym. Whatever. I totally skipped the pizza and had a great 45 minutes at the gym. :)

On Tuesday night, Hubs and I went out to eat Mexican (to make up for the gym, you know!). The waiter was a bit too helpful. (He even offered to salt my chips.) At one point, I said that my drink tasted funny and asked for fresh one. He used MY STRAW to TASTE it. I'll be honest, I gagged a little. Thankfully, he agreed that it did taste weird and got me a fresh drink ... and a new straw. It may be a while before we go there again.

Anyway. There you have it. Some links, a giveaway, two terribly strange things that happened to me this week. Have a wonderful Friday!
