In case y'all missed it, Kristen Painter's got an interesting post over at Fictionistas. With books as with people, it's not the cover that counts, folks. I'm still looking forward to the day when everyone lives by MLK's example and judges men not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Someday.
Look out world, another Sanderson has arrived. Last week, one of Hubby's nephews welcomed a son into existence. From all accounts, mother and baby are doing fine. They live in FL, so chances are we won't be seeing them any time soon, but we're happy just the same.
This just in: According to my mother, her part of Michigan has gotten 3 inches of rain so far this month. Here, we've gotten around 6 inches (if you add in the 6/10ths we got last night). I never thought I'd see a day when the high desert was wetter than any place in Michigan, but there it is. And I say again... Global warming my ass.
Have you noticed they stopped calling it 'Global Warming'? I guess since that was proved false, they thought they'd try another angle. Now it's the ever-scary 'Climate Change'. :shrug: Keep at it, boys, but you still can't change reality. =op
Personally, the rain is totally pissing me off, but on a wider scale, this area is seeing a bumper crop in wheat and corn, so I guess that's a good thing. It'll be great if the price of bread goods drops, and if corn is plentiful, then meat prices should drop, too. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Groceries have become so damn expensive, any drop will help.
In other news, we found what looks like an awesome set of belly-fat burning exercises. They're supposed to be done 3 times a day in combination with 30 minutes of aerobic exercise. (That's two and a quarter hours. Who's got time for that?) We're only doing the exercises 3 times a day and the aerobic thing once a day. If it looks like it's working, I'll post the exercises here. We've only done them today and yesterday, but those 7 exercises are kicking my butt. Yay.
And now it's time for the thirty minute workout, which will be a brisk walk today. See y'all later.
