All right already!

After having some conversations with fellow hometown bloggy girls, and getting harrassed by CJ (which I really don’t mind at all, honestly), I am blogging right now. Just to do it. I have nothing to say, other than I love Pandora and Twitter now. I think Twitter has kind of taken over for my blog.

My children have all become excellent readers, but they don’t always want to stick with a book. They abandon books a lot, or it seems that way. I mentioned on Twitter that I had read “Coraline” aloud to my kids (who are 5, 7, and 8) and parts of other books like Wicked, because they just enjoy those kinds of stories, but they don’t have the patience to read them on their own.

So Neil Gaiman–and I am not making this up–sent me a message on Twitter that my kids might enjoy these other books by Diana Wynne Jones and Daniel Pinkwater. I was geeking out over getting an @ message from @neilhimself but my husband could not appreciate it. I was so excited but it felt empty somehow. Anyway, I ordered some of those books that Neil recommended, and look forward to finding out how many frakking AR points they are (do you know how I hate AR?).

What else?

My van is making weird noises. It sounds very dissatisfied with life. I am too comfortable in not having a car payment, though. I really don’t want a car payment and so I will keep driving it, getting the oil changed and such to keep it less miserable.

We have a puppy. He poops a lot. And barks a lot. And he’s adorable, too, and bugs the crap out of our elderly dog. sometimes she doesn’t mind it, but sometimes she bites back. He is still too much of a male to get the picture.

Had a fun night out last weekend with Charnita, who also neglects her blog. And then I ran into Leigh, another blog-neglector, in Publix today. We are in bloggy funks. Maybe we’ll start a girl band called the BloggyFunx.
