Reasons I love America:

From It Made My Day by the Cheezburger people:

I work in an ice cream parlor. Unlike my coworkers, I love when tourists come in. A few weeks ago, this British family came in, all ordering small cones. As I handed the first cone to the father, he asked if it was truly a small. It's 4 oz and being on a cone, it looks larger. When I told him yes, he smiled and said "This is what I love about America." Knowing that I made his day, MMD.

So for all of my two watchers (hah), what's going on in the life o'me? Not a lot. Much of the same. Work. Eat chocolate. Write (though not as often as I'd like). But when it comes to some random things, here's something to read that might entertain you for a bit.

Currently in Love With: Mark Strong. Okay. So I'm not necessarily in love with him, but what can I say? I like Stardust and he's sexy as Septimus. WHAT? You want to have words over this? The man looks good with semi-long hair and the occasional 5 o'clock shadow. And NO SURPRISE, NO SURPRISE, he's English. Anyway, I'll daydream about him for a while before he gets replaced by some other English/Scottish/Irish/Aussie guy.

Song I'm Killing: "Black, Black Heart" by David Usher. Discovered on YouTube while looking for something else, I slipped this bad boy onto my mp3 player and have listened to it enough that now it's starting to die. Kinda makes me feel like some sort of musical vampire. Or succubus. Mmmm, delicious. Oh, and if you go looking for it, find version 2. The original version is too slow and fails to rock out enough. It took me three tries to find the right one.

Book I'm Reading: Speaking of succubi, My Fair Succubi by Jill Myles is currently with bookmark. And I'm pacing myself. I'll be done the day after tomorrow though, I'm sure. It's hard to put down. If you like paranormal romances and want something a tad different, go with a book where angels are dicks, vampires have feathery wings (black of course), and a succubus is the main protagonist. Whoo.

Stupid Shit Customers Say: "Do you sell cameras?"
"Do I get 10% off gift cards with my membership?"
"Do you sell the Kindle?"
"You don't sell the Kindle? Can you get online and buy one for me?"
"Can you help me set up my Kindle?"
"Where is nonfiction?"
"Where are the how-to books?"
"Where are the books on how to make fake IDs?"
"I've had this book for a year. It's still in really good condition. I don't have the receipt. Can I still return it?"

What the Dog Might Say At This Moment: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

The Holidays: Christmas was good. Got a random assortment of goodies. Which reminds me, I still need to go to Old Navy. I went gaga on books. As for New Year's, I was in bed by 11:30. But hey, I rocked out to music until 12 and then listened to all the neighbors set off fireworks BECAUSE YOU CAN DO THAT HERE. Unlike half the states in the nation...

What I Need to Do Tomorrow: Freelance. Celebrate mom's birthday. I'm sure there's something else, but I can't remember what it is at this moment.

Well, I guess that does it for now. It feels good to finally contribute something to this blog. I ought to update my Ramblings one too, but I think I'll do that at another time. Until then, Cheerio!
