11 Random Things

1. I have the opposite of a reading slump. I want to read and read and read. Obstacles to reading include working, sleeping and eating.

2. I have a three day weekend coming up and I took an extra day off so I can read more.

3. Although reading An Everlasting Meal has made me want to cook more.

4. We recently got an xBox 360. I was hoping a Kinect was going to be my Valentine's Day present. It wasn't.

5. But I did get some beautiful roses and 2 dozen chocolate covered strawberries. 

6. I shared a dozen of those strawberries with my coworker. 

7. The other dozen are all mine :)

8. My local grocery store had a really good deal on Vitaminwater and Poweraide. I went a little crazy and bought 130 bottles. I have little storage issue right now.

9. I really like Vitaminwater but only the XXX kind. All the other flavors are tolerable. 

10. I tend to horde candy and snack items. I'll buy a box of cookies, eat a few, and keep the rest for later. Except I tend to forget about them and go out and get more cookies later. Tai finds boxes of cookies with half or less missing all the time.

11. I did our taxes and we owe again :( Boo!

  1. I should do this today :)

    Ove 100 bottles!? Lol, yes I can see that you got storage issues

  2. I like to store items too!! Sometimes I feel like the end of time is coming but other days it's just because I'm too lazy to go to the store!!! You were nice about sharing the strawberries...I would've ate them all!! :D

  3. I love faeries. My dream vacation involves a luxury resort, beach, hiking, yoga, running, and reading. I have a Kindle and iPad. I love both, but the Kindle is MUCH better for reading. I always have onions in my fridge. Thanks for tagging me!


Shiny! I love comments.
