"Without enough sleep, we all become tall two-year-olds." *

I have been laughing my ass off reading these.

Have also been entertained and moved by these and am compiling my own 365 list at the moment.

Last night I read straight through Sarah Addison Allen's Garden Spells. Think a slightly more contemporary Practical Magic. (Yes, it WAS almost that good.) Go read it.

Also - a very nice person (I forget who, blame it on placenta brain) emailed me personally a while ago offering me their espresso pot that they no longer use, and I neglected to reply because I am an ill-mannered person who was raised by wolves. If you are even still reading, generous person, I would LOVE your espresso pot, in hopes of perhaps saving some of the cash I spend profligately at Starbucks. And if you are still so thoughtfully inclined, email me again, and I swear I will not only reply but be very very grateful. Thank you!

wolves? really? what kind? are they antartic?

The parenting stories, not so much. But I like the 365 idea...

Shame about the espresso machine, as I just gave away my fancy-arse burr grinder.

Ha! I know Sarah Allen's mom, she works with my husband. I have the book but I haven't read it yet...
She (Sarah)is hard at work on her second or I guess maybe it's her third novel now.
