If obsessiveness were money, Bookish Girl'd be Bill Gates

I've started Book Five
(line of the day: "If breasts were money, Connie'd be Bill Gates.")

The punctuation is all Janet's.


I have a problem.

The
Human Stain, Yellow Jack, The Confederacy of Dunces, Shop Girl, and Devil in the White City have all been left to languish on my night stand. It's not that I don't love you dear books, it's just that I have a SERIOUS addiction here. And the knitting? Well, we won't even discuss that.

SERIOUS

Have I mentioned my obsession with Su Doku?

The biggest news of the week - I am officially going to the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival aka. Rhinebeck. My First sheep festival. My First Road Trip with Elisa (dude, Elisa, I am so downloading the audio version of Book Seven for our trip. And yes, I will be up to that point by then (thanks for the tip Heide.) And My First time meeting all kinds of people including, these fools. I am so going to get Vicki drunk while we're there. ;)

Who else will I meet?

BRING ON THE SHARPIES!

Kurt is obsessed with su doku. Yay for reading! I can't think of another obsession that is quite that good for you.

I'm also obsessed with Sudoku. If you are interested, I have a Samurai Sudoku .pdf that a friend sent from her Australian newspaper. It's made up of 5 overlapping Sudoku puzzles! Woo hoo!

WOW. I'm sharing my freakin' BED with you and I don't even rate a Rhinebeck shout out?! I see where I rate. ;-)

Just for that I'm putting your name in my side bar. Elisa's too. You deserve it my lovely.

9 days, baby! Rhinebeck! I have a 24-pack of colored Sharpies all packed up and ready to go. I would also like to point out that the featured sheep this year are the Tunis sheep, aka: "The Redheads". That's right...the redheads are coming, the redheads are coming.....

Okay, that's cool what Kellee said about the redheaded sheep. I have a fondness for redheadedness.

I'm a cheap date, hon. And you know, the only reason I blogged drunk is because I wished I could belly up to the bar with y'all, 'cuz you've just got to be a barrel of laughs. Woo, now I will be for real. ; )

Have a great time at Rhinebeck! I hope they do an airshow, too.
I think it is Cashmere weekend at the State Fair.

Late comment on this post, but had to comment on Plum novels. A co-worker gave me the first one to read. I read one a day for the next 10 days. I love them. They're so much fun. You should also check out the Undead series by Mary Janice Davidson if you haven't. They are just as fun.
