Monday Mindspacing Vol. 121

1) Terra Nova really does nothing for me.
2) I don't know how I carpal tunneled my hand (did you know that was a verb???) Saturday night but I woke up Sunday displeased.
3) I'm so excited some of you guys want to go running now!  We should do a blogger meet-up at a 5k!!!
4) We need more people at the Nerd Girl-hosted blogger book club.  Read The Hunger Games by December 5th and join the discussion!
5) I need interrobang (‽) to become a thing.  I love the word, I love the meaning, I love the punctuation mark! I also enjoy the snark ( Irony mark full.svg ) punctuation! The future of punctuation article amused me greatly!
6) I have unnecessarily short patience right now. Tis bad.
I think he's ADORABLE in this pic!
7) Rashan and I went to two parties this weekend.  Friday was a costume party.  I was Donatella Versace & Rashan was static cling.  He won most creative for an idea he found on the web and I assembled in five minutes.  LOL  Saturday was an Oktoberfest party so I made a cranberry apple pie that was a hit!
8) At the Saturday party, the hostess said we flirt like we just started dating.  :)  I thought that was the cutest thing ever!!  Who else would I want to flirt with other than my husband?? NOBODY!
9) OMG! We found out my brother-in-law is coming to Savannah for Thanksgiving which should also mean our youngest niece and nephew (ages 2 & 4) are coming.  I loooooove them!!  They're so cute!
10) I missed Hampton Homecoming yet again.  I've now missed it as an alum more times than I've been.  Ah well.  Plenty of time to right that imbalance.
11) I want to read more books.  Have you read anything good lately?

Oh how I've missed your Monday Mindspacing!

I've been on a reading binge and recently reacquainted myself with the public library. Free books? Don't mind if I do!

I tried reading this book called 'We need to talk about Kevin" but it was in the form of letters written from a woman to her ex husband about their mass murdering teenager. I just couldn't get with the written in letter form writing - yuck. I just finished Mama Ruby by Mary Monroe, I love her books!

Books: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Rebecca Skloot) gets five out of five stars from me. I couldn't put it down.
I just started reading The Hare with Amber Eyes (Edmund de Waal) and that looks very promising.

I love your costume and Rashan's.
I will check out the book and hopefully I can join the discussion. oooh, I wish I were on the east coast and could meetup for a 5k, or convince you all to meet up for a half marathon...wouldn't that be more awesome?!?!?! Yes, it would.
