Random Thoughts…

The Great Mall of China

Not with Jack Handy, but with yours truly…

*It’s not even October, and I’ve already heard way more about Christmas than is appropriate for open-toe shoe weather.  Seriously.  It’s bad enough people get all Christmas-y before Thanksgiving, but now they’re not even waiting until after Halloween?  The Christmas “season” is stressful enough when it lasts for the month bet. Thanksgiving & Christmas, but when it starts in mid-September, I’m doomed.  Before I die, I bet I’ll live to see the day malls start decorating for Christmas after Fourth of July, maybe even Easter!  Ugh!  😦

*Isn’t it funny how songs can hold such strong associations?  I heard Barenaked Ladies’ “If I had a Million Dollars” this morning, and it brought me right back to my honeymoon in 1998.  That song was all over the radio at the time, and so we must have heard it a million times in that week.  So now, every time I hear it, I think of our honeymoon.  Ahhh, those sweet days of nothing but free time before we had jobs & children.  ♥

*Also, if I actually HAD a million dollars, I would totally retire.  Today.  Work is just annoying & stressful.  I’m convinced I was meant to be a trust-fund baby, and there must have been some kind of mix-up.

*I started a new book.  When I last updated my reading list, I think it ended with Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”  That one took me a while to get through.  It’s 600 pages, and the first half is almost painfully slow, and very confusing to keep all the characters straight.  The two main characters don’t even meet until around page 300.  It flies from there though, and I’m convinced now that all that slow introduction was necessary for the remainder of the trilogy.  I started the 2nd book in the series late last week, “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” and it’s moving much more quickly.  I’m already about half-way through it, and will probably finish it and start the 3rd book (“The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest“) next week, since I heard today that book 2 cuts off sharply at the end, and I’ll need to start book 3 right away.

*Veronica starts skating & dance lessons for the year on Saturday.  She’s got new skates, new dance gear, and is ready to go!  We decided to wait another year before Sabrina starts dance.  She’s also not allowed to start skating (club rules) until she’s 4.  I’m sure she’ll be jealous.

*Lucy goes to the Vet saturday to see if her stitches are ready to come out.  She seems to be recovering from the biopsy nicely, and the drugs seem to be helping her pain.  I can only pray that the Prednisone will actually cure it.  ♥

*So, that’s what’s on my mind.  What’s on yours?
