I Like Chocolate Chocolate Cookies for Dinner

The Double Fudge cookies from Mother's Cookies are some of my favorites. Mmmmm... Guess what I had for dinner tonight?  Yup.  About 8 Mother's(TM) Double Fudge Creme cookies followed by one rather meager homemade bean/cheese burrito.  Gotta have dessert first - life's too short, and there are no guarantees!

I Like a Breather Between Classes!

It's been awhile since I posted, and my apologies, but I have a good excuse - really.  I started grad school on top of my regular full-time job - right at the time of year that I start with 60 hour work weeks.  I know that I posted recently about how awesome my husband is to continue supporting me in my insanity, so you all out there do already have some foreknowledge of my self-induced plight.

Well, and so here I find myself in the one week break in between courses.  It's wonderful, but I find myself being overrun with catch-up work.  Got the taxes done, get extra hours in at work, got the professional certification exam scheduled, got the upgrade implementation to go-live at work and next on the list is to apply for financial aid for the year now that I got my taxes done.  So, yes, it's awesome to have a week off, now, when can I get a week of for real?!  (A:  oh... when school's really overwith and the catch-up is done, you silly goose - no one to blame but yourself, after all, but boy do I hope I can make piles of money after it's all over with!)

It's Terrifying, but I Like David Thorne's Writing

Visit David Thorne's 27b/6 blog here, and just try not to almost die laughing.  Writing that I like his writing is  terrifying because he has a rapier wit and I'm pretty scared of being a target because I know that I am no match.  None.  Nope.  Nada.  None whatsoever.  Did I say none?  I roll over.  I surrender.  Considering I'm not a customer, not a co-worker not in advertising or graphic design at all, and have nothing to do with his son, hopefully I'll be safe. 

Nonetheless, for the sake of my blog, I take this risk, exposing myself, so that you, too, my dear, nearly non-existent readers, may come to know the humor, the sidesplitting hootenanny that is David Thorne's 27b/6 blog.  I might even buy his book.  You might, too.  I like virtual spiders. Kind of.

I Like My Friend's Blog and Her Writing

So, I have a friend who writes the Marvelous Mrs. E blog.  Check it out.  She's a little strange - much like someone else I know (yeah, okay, I could be talking about myself or any number of my friends; you just infer how you like).  We don't always share the same beliefs, and she can be a wingnut (pot, kettle... like I'm one to talk), but she's good people, by golly, and I do like her!  So, go read her blog - she's a wonderful writer with a stellar voice and style who actually has the courage to write about her life.  That's more than I can say for most - myself included!

I Like My New T-Shirt!

My most awesome husband bought this for me! ♥ It was waiting for me when I got home a couple of days ago. :-) I wore it proudly today while out and about running Saturday errands out w/the hubster!  Sadly, there were no decisions about which we were torn, so trying out a game will have to wait. ;-)  BTW, I LOVE the stuff on the www.thinkgeek.com website!
