This year's Christmas presents for Hubs and I are joint presents - fishing gear. We spent yesterday morning looking at stuff on Amazon and picking out what we figured would be a good mix of stuff to catch bass. Should be fun this Spring.
Right now, I'm reading Robinson Crusoe. Or as I put it to Hubs last night, "I'm finally finishing Robinson Crusoe after 42 years." This is the book I picked up when I was about 4 and started 'writing' it by copying the words down on a piece of paper. So I read probably a paragraph worth back then... well, 'read' as much as a four year old can read anything. I can't wait to see how it turns out. ;o)
Back in October when I was reading up a storm, I adjusted my Goodreads goal to 90 books. Then November hit and I read like one book. I'm pretty behind now. I've read 79 books. I don't think I'll make it to 90, but I made a rule that I can adjust my goal up but never down. Cuz that's cheating. We'll see where I end up.
Yes, I believe that cheating on yourself is still cheating.
Way back when, in another life when I was a younger me, I had a best friend. We were thick as thieves, Mags and I. Then life happened. And we drifted apart. Long story short, I haven't seen or spoken to her in like 27-28 years or something. I started looking for her pretty much as soon as the internet was born. Not every day or anything - I'm not a psycho - but like whenever the idea struck me. I found her Facebook page last night. I sent her a message and a friend request*. Now, we'll see if she replies. If so, cool. If not, oh well. At least I found her. She's alive and she looks happy in the pics she's posted. That's the most important thing I wanted to know.
*Ever see that Sonic commercial where the two guys who star in those things are sitting in a car next to two guys who look similar to them, and they want to make friends, but the blond guy gets all weird? Yeah, in retrospect, I think that's probably how my message reads. Total loon. :shrug:
What's on your this n that today?
