I still exist. Yes I do.

Such a long time it has been, yes? I have to say, I missed the blog world a whole lot.

This summer is the first summer in which I have no obligations toward school. My college life of classes has been on play since September of '05. My brain is currently in a state of shock due to the absence of such summer classes this time around. Quite nice, I'd have to say. I am sure you can imagine.

I have actually been reading quite a bit lately. For fun, I might add. Something I have not done for years. Seriously. Years. Any suggestions on some good reads? I'd love to hear them. I am currently reading Stiff and the author carries such voice in this novel. I'm loving it thus far.


I will fill you in as to what mischievous (not really) happenings I have been up to lately. For now, I will say this. I got a haircut. I know. That's not terribly exciting. Maybe an exclamation mark will help. I got a haircut!

In any case, the young man whose handiwork is now atop my head was quite nice and I thoroughly enjoy nice people. It's always pretty uncomfortable getting your hair sheared while your mind races as it tries to find the next topic to discuss so no awkward silence falls between the two of you. This was not the case for me however.


I'll be back with more, more, more. Will you stay tuned? I sure hope so.

So good to see you again! I stopped by each week and was beginning to worry...can't stop that mom thing in me no matter who it is... are you going to show us your haircut?

So much love. I appreciate everyone stopping by. It's like a big welcome hug. And what's better than that?

I'll be around a lot more so I'm looking forward to such exchanges!

yeah~! she's back...i'm going to have to check out that book. looks totally up my alley. thanks for the tip.

Hey Octavine, any time!

About the picture of the hair, I'll get that up as soon as I: (1) find my camera charger, and (2) convince someone to take a picture of me.

Taking a picture of myself makes me feel all awkward-like.

glad you're back!! some suggestions for books . . . i just finished memories of running and it was a hoot! i'm 3/4 thru water for elephants and i'm loving it as well. i agree with jen at painted fish studio on the road by mccarthy. it was one of the most thought-provoking books i've read in a long time.

So glad to see you're still kicking/blogging!

Now that I'm unemployed I'm finally getting to do some reading myself. This week I read "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert and "After Hours at the Almost Home" by Tara Yellen. The first is kinda memoir-ish (lots about yoga!) and the 2nd is a kind of like an ensemble-cast novel, if that makes sense.

Hey. Thanks for all the recommendations! My eyes will be quite busy running across pages this summer. Woot.
