to all the awesome daddy penguins out there!  I hope today treats you kindly and gives you a chance to kick back and relax!

To all my other penguins:  happy HIP HIP HOORAY, it’s another day! to you.  Unless it’s your birthday, in which case, happy HIP HIP HOORAY, today is YOUR day! to you.

I tried to turn on an audiobook at work this morning…and quickly realized how very NOT good an idea this was.  I get super into the book I’m listening to, and then–like any book addict worth their chapters–get super upset whenever an interruption happens.  As you can imagine, in my line of work….interruptions are sort of a consistent guarantee.  Of course, I was also sort of grouchy this morning, which didn’t help.  It worked out though–I listened to my book while stocking the cooler and cleaning windows (because organizing/cleaning always helps me get out of my grump? someone explain this to me?)

I found a dime from 1940! in my drawer this morning, and couldn’t resist bringing it home to the hubster.  He’s got sort of a fascinated obsession with old/foreign coin, so I try to snag them when I find them (obviously I exchange them out for the same amount from my wallet–I promise you, I’m not just randomly stealing cents!  SENSE, on the other hand, I could do with a bit of help)  Of course, this means his collection has grown just a bit more…but they’re small, so it’s all good.  (I can just hear HIM now:  “It BETTER be good, I put up with all your books!” )

Speaking of books, there’s a new widget on my page!  Maybe you’ve noticed it?  It’s titled something like “Let’s Buddy!” and is, for all intents and purposes, the ever-growing collection of books I eventually need to get around to reading.  Feel free to click it and go through my shelves; if you see anything you’d like to buddy read, I’m sure you know by now what to do!

Also, IT’S SUNDAY! (obviously, or this post wouldn’t exist yet)  That means it’s time for a new “choose my book” poll!  Last week’s top three were quite the mixed bag; let’s see what you guys throw me this week!  Remember, I’ll read the top three (in order of most votes to least).

  1. Ugh, how inconsiderate of those people interrupting you at work 😉 Don’t they know you were busy??? 😛

    Ooh that’s so cool about the coin! I love antique stuff like that. My dad found a coin from the late 1800s a while ago (we donated it to the historical place where we do our paranormal investigations) and it was so awesome. I didn’t want to part with it, haha.

    Love your buddy-read shelf idea! I’ve always been interested in buddy reads, but I’m worried to commit because I am an extremely distracted reader, haha.

    • RIGHT?! I mean hooooonestly! Lmao

      See, I like buddy reading because it makes me sit down and FOCUS for a change. Usually my brain’s all over the place lol, but when I’m committed to reading and sharing the experience with someone, things suddenly clear up. It’s weird, I can’t explain it right.
