Odds and Ends

Alyssa & Kristie tagged me for this little exercise:
1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas.
5. Tag five people to do the same.

"See for yourself it's amazing !!!"

Well, that's enlightening, isn't it? A run on sentence :) I never claimed to be Hemingway (oh, wasn't he famous for his run on sentences? Maybe not... loved "The Old Man and the Sea").

Anyway, what I was talking about was this artist, Julian Beever, that draws 3D chalk pictures on sidewalks. I'm a very visual person and I thought it was very cool!

I tag, hmmm....., nobody :)

(I'm in the mood for exclamation points today :)
We had our fiscal end of the year at work and a big company meeting with accolades and acknowledgements. Everyone got a CASH bonus. I just started working here in April but I got $260 in hard cash. While not a huge amount, I was not expecting anything, so this came as a nice surprise. What to spend it on?? You know the answer to that, right? Books, of course, with maybe a pair of shoes (I need shoes more than books).

Hell, I really don't need to buy any new books, since my TBR mountain is embarrassing. But since when has embarrassment ever stopped me? Off the top of my head, I know I want the L. Valdez's Patience, Roberts' Red Lily, and the next in the Crimson City series. Are there any upcoming books I should consider?

I whined a while ago about my favorite UBS being evicted with no place to go. I found out recently that they have found a new location near their current one. Whew, dodged a bullet on that one.
