I feel like it’s been ages upon ages upon FOREVER that I did a Stacking the Shelves post last.

LEGASP!  OH WAIT, that’s because it HAS been ages upon ages upon forever!  How silly of me.  What, did I think I suddenly inherited pocketfuls of free time?!  Who am I even kidding with that nonsense?!?!?!

So.  Life lately.  Uhm.  The man and I are doing okay.  We’re sort of on this “save bunch of money!” kick because we’re taking a week off in August to go on vacation (oh my penguins, what even IS that word anymore?!?!?!) and, yah know…bills don’t go on vacation with us.  So we’re not really buying a whole lot, and I sit around after work still AT WORK for like 2.5 hours waiting for him to pick me up, annnnnd… I basically have even less life now than I did before!?

One of my employees is currently missing.  She told her aunt she was headed to work Thursday evening (she was supposed to work that night) annnnd…she never showed up at work.  And she never went home.  The aunt has filed a missing persons report; we’re all hoping that the girl is found safe and sound.  This is so very stressful and scary–she’s a minor still, and it’s not like her to just up and disappear.

Apparently a water main broke in our apartment complex, so our water pressure has been going in and out since last night (Thursday–because, you know, I’m writing this a day ahead of posting)

I put up a discussion post asking for tips and tricks on how to DO ALL TEH THINGS for the Book Block world without, you know, losing my beak.  You can find that post right HERE, if you’re interested.  I’d also LOVE it if you Penguins could, once again, link me to stuff and things you think I should check out that I’ve probably missed in recent weeks past–I really AM trying to do better at this blog hopping thing, I promise!  I just…I think I need to get a set schedule, or something.  Like, such and such days I spend working on blog posts, such and such on reading, such and such on blog hopping.  A set schedule might help me get better organized at this point.

And now, FOR THE BOOKS!  because I know you all didn’t come here just to hear me yak.

So this week was “get emails from ALL TEH AUTHORS/PUBLISHERS” week in my world.  And by that, I mean all those I’ve worked with in the past.  And by that I mean…okay, not ALL of them, but a good amount that added up to a decent number of new books on my shelves to read YAY!

Because…books.  Books are what excite me.

I don’t really have a whole lot to talk about today.  I am in desperate need of a friend or two or several, but I’m not sure where to even begin with THAT venture.  I mean, PandaPants is one of the bestestest book buddies around, but I’m a little lacking in the friends department in general, and I have basically zero amount of time on my hands lately to go out there and make some, sooooo… any suggestions?  Anyone?  HOW DOES A PENGUIN MAKE FRIENDS?!
