Dang

I just realized that even with my recent birthday I'm too young to retire. Guess I'll have to keep working for a few years. That means little time to quilt, little time to hike.

Fortunately, I have plenty of time to read. I listen to books when I'm working. When I'm really busy with work, I get through nearly a book a day.

The most recent read was The Chase by Clive Cussler. I am a rabid Dirk Pitt fan, and this wasn't a book featuring that most lovely man. This was about bank robbery, antique cars, steam locomotives, and turn-of-the-century detective work. It was kind of predictable, but enjoyable anyway. If you get to listen to the book, Scott Brick is the narrator. That man is amazing and I'd listen to him read his grocery list. Seriously.

Now for a few personal notes.....

Being a native Pittsburgh-er, I have to root for the Pens in the Stanley Cup. Sorry S and A. We can be friends again next week.

Welcome to my new book buddy, L. Just in case you were wondering, this book isn't anywhere near as good as Twilight. Even if Edward is too young for me.

Happy weekend, everyone. Do something fun and think of me while I'm working, ok?

Three things never to discuss with good friends -- politics, religion, and hockey!!

I think I saw a poster for a "Twilight" movie at the theater yesterday...I unfortunately missed "Twilight" the book but read the sequel "New Moon", which I enjoyed. I got all out of sequence when I ordered the latest book from the library after reading a good review of it, not realizing it was the third in a trilogy, so I sent it back and got what I thought was the first one, only to find out it was the second, but by that time I was so exasperated I just read it. Now I need to re-order the latest one. I'm a librarian's nightmare over here.
