This week I'm participating in Tiney's Sunday Scramble again. It's a great way to get out all the stuff that isn't long enough for a post of it's own, and I still get to share all the randomness with you! Swing by Tiney's and check out what everyone else is talking about.
You all know that I love books. What I've come to realize lately - a good percentage of the books that I'm buying are part of a series. For some reason, that just hooks me even more. You want to break your story into a million different parts - SURE I'LL BUY EVERY BOOK IN THE SERIES!!!! Really - Twilight is 4 books; Southern Dead (Sookie Stackhouse) series is 10 and counting; The Blue Bloods are already 4 books and expecting more; and my latest addiction is Nora Roberts' bride quartet.
It Seems I've Missed My Calling
I'm working on a really large implementation project/program at work. That means I'm getting more exposure at work (a good and bad thing [bad only in that I'm shy...]), leading "readiness" sessions with clients, and have lots of folks listening to what I say and how I say it. I've always been told that I'm well spoken - but I was shocked last week when I got not one, not two, but THREE comments from another group that I missed my calling - they were "blown away" by a presentation I gave and should have gone into broadcasting. HOLY COW!! I don't like my voice, but I appreciate the compliments. :-)
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Saturday I went to the hairdresser. Last time I was in, we talked about how I had darker hair as a little kid. He requested that I bring in a picture or two just to prove it - as he's colored my hair a bunch of different colors, but never anything darker than dirty blonde over the past 5 years. (BTW - I openly admit that I've been experimenting with hair dye since I was 13 and have NO CLUE what my natural hair color is anymore). Well, I give Ed free reign over what happens with my hair - and my hair went from a medium blonde to DARK brown in just under an hour. I like it... but it's going to take some getting used to.
Is there something in the water, people?!?! Are they handing them out at Babies R' Us?!?! I know at least one person adding to their family every month from January to October 2010, and I wouldn't be surprised to hear from folks in a few months that there will be November & December babies too. Holy baby blankets! I think I have my knitting projects scheduled for the entire year already. I'm happy for everyone - but this single girl is feeling way behind the eight-ball in the "life's benchmarks" category.
