The computer will be mine!! Woo Hoo!!

So my head is hurting again but luckily it's not a migraine. It's just a normal every day headache.

Only two days and the hubby is home!!!!!!

I went to check my Email this morning and on Yahoo's home page under the newest news they had this link about Buffalo vs lions vs alligator. All I can say is WOW. I started to get tears in my eyes and then couldn't help but smile them away.

I've been doing nothing much but reading like crazy lately. Gotta get it in before H Ditty comes home and we have to get caught up on all the summer shows that have been recording while he's been gone. Because real soon here all the fall shows will be starting. As I've mentioned a time or two before - we watch too damn many shows.

I'm excited though because when he gets back the laptop he's been using will come to me and I'll finally be able to get on the computer whenever I want now instead of having to wait for a time when he doesn't feel like being on it or hasn't made it home from work yet. That's gonna be heaven!

Man, I am loving the hell out of Swan Song. I mentioned it a couple posts ago with a link to the author's home page for the book. This book came out in 1987. I was 17 and an avid book reader, as I still am, and can remember seeing this sitting on the shelf. The devil's grin calling me to pick up the book and buy without even reading what it was about. Now in the check out line I did and was ever so glad I grabbed it. I couldn't put the thing down. It's close to a thousand pages long and I devoured it in a couple days. For the past 20 years I've read it many, many times. I read it every year for the first five or six that I had it. After that it went maybe every other year or so. But the last time I read it was close to 5 years ago now, maybe even longer, not sure exactly. But once again I'm hooked. When I'm not reading it I'm thinking about when I'll be able to get back to it. I've brought it to work with me every day to read while at lunch. Every day someone has decided they wanted to talk to me so I'd only get about 3 or 4 pages read in the 45 minutes I'm down there. Very frustrating but I don't want to be rude. Oh well, that's what I get for sitting a table long enough to fit 8 instead of one of the bar tables that only fits 2.

Media quote of the day: Here we go 'round the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush. Here we go 'round the mulberry bush, so early in the morrrning. . . .

Lights out!!! - The Devil - Swan Song

And that is why I eat lunch at my desk. People can be ok but sometimes I need to be left alone.

Yay!! You get your computer back! You get your computer back!

Oh ... and hubby gets home too! :)

Natalie - I'd eat at my desk if the bosses didn't frown upon it. They ENCOURAGE using the lunch room.

Dan - HEE! Yeah, that too.
