So, I know it’s been a while all around, but I’ll just stop making excuses…

I’ve made some progress on my 101 in 1001 list, though!

#2–Go on Weight Watchers and stick with it for at least 12 weeks.  I’m currently in week 5!

#28–Get a Kitchen Aid Mixer.  My mom got me one for my birthday back in April!  I used it to make Red Velvet cupcakes and it was AWESOME.

#45–Pay off all Credit Card debt.  I have paid off one, and should have the other paid off by the end of July!

#70–Make a new friend.  I’ve made several, but I’ve left it as “In Progress” because really, who wants to say they’re done making friends?!

Well, that’s all for now.  But I’m working on more posts that I’ll put up soon!

From La Professor…

“Liberal is not a bad word.  Would you complain if they gave you a liberal amount of fries at Five Guys?  Of course not, because they’re awesome.”

Never a dull moment around here.

Title: Queen of Babble
Author: Meg Cabot

Comments:
If you don’t already know, Meg Cabot is the author of a ton of juvenile fiction, most famously, The Princess Diaries. This book, however, is not supposed to be juvenile fiction. The main character is in her late 20s, so presumably this book is meant for an audience of that age. I say presumably because I found it kind of weird as I was reading it; sometimes the main character seemed much younger than she was supposed to be, but then she was involved in rather graphic sex scenes! The main character was kinda Bridget Jones-y, but not anywhere near as loveable. The story was predictable, but in a good way. I took this book with me to the beach, and it was a perfect, frothy read for my vacation.

I usually start my day at work by reading the NY Times headlines, which I receive by email every morning. Actually, I skim the headlines, because hey, I’m at work, and I should actually be doing work and keep up with current events on my own time. Anyway, this morning, I received my daily dose of the NYT, and it arrived with this heading:

Daily Headlines: The Consensus on Iraq: Nobody& #180;s Leaving Right Now

It’s just a little mistake in the code (though I have to say it’s embarrassing how often that happens), no big deal, right? Unless you’re speed-reading, in which case, it looks like this:

Daily Headlines: The Consensus on Iraq: Nobody’s #@$% Leaving Right Now, or in translation, Nobody’s Fucking Leaving Right Now.

Which might be closer to the truth.
