Child support

This little boy really did come up to me and say this. I guess it was quite obvious that I don't normally do storytime. Plus, I have to follow an amazing act, George (who normally does this) plays the ukelele and sings songs before every storytime.

More bread-baking

And lack of self-control.

Height issues

Edit: after rereading this, I meant to write that Jenn is 4 and 3/4 feet tall (maybe more like 4ft 11in). She is not 4ft and 3/4inches tall.

Wii Fit

It didn't quite say this, but it does go "Oh!" in a tiny, cute voice when you step on it.

My new obsession

I've already made baguettes, a batard, ciabatta, and focaccia. Yumyum.


The bread still turned out okay, but I don't think it was quite as good as it should have been.

Why I have been delinquent in my postings...

Some work

It's for a magazine called LeadingEdge.


First, and hopefully only, time this happened. I happened to be taking the dog to a vet appointment, so I got Seth to help me out so as not to leave her alone in the car.

The Hunger Games

Finished the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Excellent. Don't be discouraged by the slightly odd-sounding "running man" themed premise. It is a really good book with characters you care about. I was incapable of putting it down.

Errands take a lot of time

Since we don't have any television it would be nice to get to watch internet episodes on our TV. But the streaming is terrible. It doesn't seem to buffer at all and pauses the video every 30 seconds.

Why I've been busy

The Diamond of Darkhold

The final book in Jeanne DuPrau's City of Ember series.

Relating to friends

My head is still sore.

Downside to enclosed bodies of water

Why I shouldn't let my thoughts wander while swimming.

Blond moment

I didn't know people said that outside of sitcoms.
