February 3, 2010

I have a funny feeling that even though this is not a book blog... A lot of my 'good things' are going to be related to books. I can't help it!

Ana from things mean a lot reviewed a graphic novel published by Vertigo called The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. Every bookstore in the area had a copy, so I decided that was fate because the bookstore here never has good graphic novels. I love the cover. I am looking forward to reading it!

I also bought Affinity and Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters. Did I need them? Nope! Those were my cutoff, though. Anything else I buy for the next few months will be new releases.

I made Fettuccine Alfredo for supper for the first time and it was a success. Yay!

Charles de Lint. Why do I read him so slowly? I love him so much! He is a brilliant author! I finally purchased a copy of Dreams Underfoot and it was one of the books that I received yesterday. I am enjoying it so far, which is so great considering I am not a big short story fan. (That being said, Michael Chabon is STILL in my car! I really have to get that book out of there. I keep forgetting...)

The weather. It is only going down to minus 15 tonight and there isn't much of a wind chill. Apparently we are in-between weather systems, but it is still damn cold!

As Pat mentioned in my comments I am grateful for indoor plumbing! lol

Comments. I don't really do the follower function or any of that stuff, but I do love getting comments! I have actually been replying to the comments on this blog, while The Written World has been suffering in that department for a few months... It always makes me so happy when I check my email and someone has commented on one of my posts. It makes me feel special.

Okay, that's all I can think of for now... I write such exciting posts, huh? lol I have to go do the dishes which is not really a good thing, but it is a necessary one...


  1. kelly, I don't think we be alive if books weren't on the "good stuff" list! lol lol (happy for you that you have that indoor plumbing!)

  2. One of my friends makes the best alfredo. She told me how she makes it once I just cannot get it to turn out as good. Sigh.

  3. I love comments, too. They're so much fun and I don't care how many I get, I love them all!

  4. LOL...I went and bought The Unwritten the very evening Ana posted her really does sound sooooo good, doesn't it?!!

  5. Pat: I know, right? I can't talk about anything without mentioning books somehow... :)

    Karen: That's too bad! I only kinda followed a recipe. I mostly experimented...

    Amanda: I know! Any comment is welcome... (Well, most of the time anyways)

    Debi: It sounds really good! I started it and am liking it so far. :)

  6. Dreams Underfoot is excellent and yeah... I actually think it's better read slowly. I've been reading The Ivory and the Horn for about a year. LOL.

    *Only* -15?

  7. Cath: I have The Ivory and the Horn. I am looking forward to reading it eventually. :)
