Back To My Normal

I got up at a ridiculous hour this morning to take the Super Librarian parents to the airport. So that means my life is back to my normal, fabulous routine. Of course it also means I have major catching up to do. I did a pretty decent job on my blog-hopping (although commenting was kept to a bare minimum), but I did zero reading this past week.

I'm talking none. Zilch. Nada. Not a single, solitary word.

This doesn't mean I didn't score books though. Heaven forbid! I made a point of picking up The Keepsake by Tess Gerritsen on Tuesday (yes, the laydown date), although all I've done with it is pet it. I also got a couple of HHs in the mail - The Magic Of Christmas anthology featuring the fabulous Cheryl St. John and The Bounty Hunter And The Heiress by Carol Finch. All this means my TBR anxiety has reached a fever pitch. Hopefully I'll be able to ignore the Michigan-Notre Dame football game today and get some reading in!

In other news this week - I hope everyone in the path of Hurricane Ike is safe and sound. Also my condolences to everyone effected by the terrible train accident near L.A. My parents, My Man and I watched breaking news coverage of it yesterday and the death toll has now risen to 17, with over 130 people injured.

Bad news all the way around, and I hate bad news (of course, who exactly "loves" it?). So I wanted to close out this blog post with something amusing. One thing I did with my parents this week was go to the L.A. County Fair. Yes, L.A. has a county fair. Honest. And it was pretty darn nice. Of course we went during the middle of the day which meant kids and old people on scooters. I'm guessing the crowd is a little different should you go to the fair at night. Anyway, one thing I love about the L.A. county fair are the commercials. Hilarious! This is one of my favorites from a couple of years ago.

You're back! You're back! Glad you had a good visit with the parental unit!

The news about Hurricane Ike and the LA Train crash is horrible. All you can do is keep folks in your thoughts and prayers.

I'll be interested to hear what you think of The Keepsake.

Welcome back, my friend.

Ah, freedom! :D Parents can be rather...dampening in life as grand as they are.

The commerical was hilarious :) Now I want to go to the fair. Heh.

Silly, everyone knows that center cut sirlon steaks come from cows.

LA has a FAIR! That cracks me up! I can only imagine what the 4H craft tent looks like. :) Using leather to make Coach bags and Manolo shoes? :)
