Mediocre Books

Do you ever start reading a book knowing that it will be mediocre at best? And then do you ever think about how it's really a waste of your time, and you could be reading/doing something so much better? If you are one of those people, do you put the book down and move on, or do you STILL WANT TO KNOW THE ENDING? Uggh! That would be my current situation, of course. Besides wasting some of my time reading a silly book, I also spent time last week visiting friends and relatives. Hurray for Fall Break! Hurray for spending it somewhere where fall actually exists and leaves change colors. I don't think I have been around changing colors for awhile. Too bad my grandmother doesn't have a big tree with lots of leaves in her yard because the one thing I didn't get to do was stomp on crunchy fallen leaves. I did have a pretty nice week, though. Any ideas for Halloween costumes?

Birthday #29

I just had my 29th birthday on Friday. Whoa. I guess I really am kind of old. I spent it at Disneyland, though, which is a place for the young at heart, I would say. More to come on that. I also visited relatives and family over the weekend, which was nice. My mom made my traditional birthday cake - German chocolate - which was quite yummy! Thanks, Mom. We celebrated today. Then, when I got back to my place tonight, one of my roommates had invited a few friends over, and she and one of the guys had made quite the delectable cake, as well. Thanks, Roommate! How nice to be loved by many.
