    I learned how to borrow eBooks from the library!!!!
    *laughs maniacally*

    • myiq2xu says:

      I recently discovered there are quite a few of my favorite books available for free online.

      I read “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” and “Starship Troopers” last week.

      I discovered my mom has no interest in nearly every e-book at the library,

      So now I have a new Nook reader.

      Isn’t it great? I love reading on my nook, way more than I thought I would, and one of the best parts is checking out library books and then having them digitally returned, no fuss, no late fees. Plus it gives me an excuse to read in the middle of the day: “really, if I don’t finish this book today it will return itself and I won’t be able to get it back for months!” I’ve discovered some good writers/books because of the digital library, too. Thought I would miss real books, and once-in-a-while I read one, but then I usually wish I had it on the nook.

      Have fun! The digital library changes everything! Well, maybe not everything, but it’s pretty damn good.

    playing with the troll.
    but it’s no fun without you and your magical editing powers 🙂

    I like Angry Birds on the Nook because the screen is bigger than on the Blackberry–I’ve gone through all that is available. Yes, I’m obsessive.

    Darn–Wilson was pulled as the Texas pitcher–so good looking….yes, he could be my child.

    Ellie and I are knitting a Mickey Mouse sweater. Well, I’m knitting and all 55 pounds of her are trying to sit on my lap. The grandkid saw a picture of his mom in a Mickey Mouse sweater her grandmother knit for her, and now he wants me to make one for him. I really wish I’d saved hers, but to quote my mother, “I’d give away my asshole and shit through my ribs”. I just don’t hoard stuff.

      I didn’t know you were a knitter! I have been working on the same scarf (in my defense, it’s my first time trying to follow a lace chart) for about 4 months now…

      • votermom says:

        We should do knitting/crocheting posts. What day would you guys like for it? (No weekends though)

        • Jadzia says:

          Monday or Friday! Maybe I will finally learn how to crochet! Supposedly it is easier than knitting but i just can’t get the hang of it.

      • elliesmom says:

        A few years ago a friend of a friend invited me to her house for a meeting of “The Bitter Knitters”. I thought it was a political group that supported Hillary, and the hostess mentioned something about wine so I went. I was very surprised when I got there that I was supposed to bring my knitting. The hostess assumed because I did other crafty things that I could knit, but I couldn’t knit a stitch. But the group pitched in, found me a set of knitting needles and a ball of yarn, and before I left, I could knit. The great thing about knitting is that the worst thing that can happen is that if what you make doesn’t cut it, you can just rip it out and start again. There are very few things in life that offer you a do over like that.

      Do they have any old Mickey Mouse sweaters?

      • elliesmom says:

        If you see one, let me know. I’m still on the sleeves. There’s time to change it from a Mickey sweater into something else. Disney’s legal wars with copyright have turned me off from them, but the kid asked and I’m a pushover for him.

    all you East Coasters,
    Enjoy the light show tonight

    I’m sitting in a cafe steeling myself to brave the cold rain and walk over to my mandatory French class. While going to class as kind of a full-time job has not exactly been CONVENIENT (the nearest class is such a long commute away that my “class days” are about 13 hours long) it’s been really helpful.

    • votermom says:

      Do you think in French now?

      • Jadzia says:

        Oh, not at all. But my husband (a native French speaker who lived in America for 20 years) tells me that’s when I will know I’m fluent. (Which reminds me that I should ask him what language HE is thinking in these days. I know that in the US he was thinking in English but obviously he speaks a lot more French now.)

        That said, I do think (and dream) ABOUT French all the time. At least, when I’m not having 9-months-pregnant nightmares (those started a couple of days ago–they are not nightmares about being pregnant or labor or anything like that, they are just very, very weird dreams).

  10. WMCB says:

    I’m off to the doc later this morning. I had a bunch of tests run end of last week, as I’m not doing so well. Hopefully she can tell me today what the hell is wrong with me – doesn’t feel like just a Lupus flare. It may be thyroid, as it’s enlarged, and I have bone-crushing fatigue and weakness. Auto-immune disorders like lupus often make you produce antibodies that kill off your thyroid, so in a weird way I’m hoping the ultrasound and bloodwork show that’s it. Because its something fairly easy to fix.

    Ok, TMI.

    • votermom says:


      Hope it’s something simple to fix (synthroid or vit D or iron).

      • WMCB says:

        Yeah, bad anemia is another possibility. Hubby says I look pale as death, and I was recently on Methotrexate for awhile which can do that to some people, even with folic acid supplementing.

        • Erica says:

          Take good care of yourself. I know what you mean about hoping for a positive test, then you’ve got somethng to go on. Almost everyone in my family is on thyroid replacement, and they seem to enjoy adjusting their meds to get that extra boost of energy. Good luck!
