Yay for short weeks

Just had a long weekend and that means a four day week - can't say I have any complaints about that. The long weekend was good too, gave me time to get into the editing.

You may recall I went and saw Kraftwerk at the end of last year. I've heard that one of the guys who started the band has now left so it sounds like I saw it just in time. For those of you who like Kraftwerk you may enjoy this little piece of sillyness.

Currently Reading: Just finished 'No Ordinary Man' by Suzanne Brockmann
This was a great read. It's an older book that I managed to find second hand. The cover almost made me think twice but she's an author that's never disappointed me in the past and she came through again.
Mood: Nothing like a good book to put one in a good mood :)

Evil Monday

Another Monday rolls around. Evil, evil Mondays; and yes, I do wish it was Sunday. Too many late nights is not a good way to start the week. Oh well, I'll just have to suck it up and soldier on - thank god for caffeine.

On a lighter note PETA have started a new campaign to rename fish "sea kittens" because after all kittens are cute and no one wants to eat pretty little kittens. Fish on the other hand... They think the campaign will work particularly well with children. I'm just wondering how they are planning to rename classic kids meals like fish fingers (pussy paws?), fish and chips (kitten and chips) or fish pie (kitty pie). Check out here.

Music: Bangles
Yes, I'm actually listening to "Manic Monday".
Currently reading: Killing Fear by Allison Brennan.
First book of hers I've read, I'm about 1/2 way through and enjoying it so far.
Mood: Wishing it was still Sunday.

Happy New Year

Yes, I know it's already more than a week into the new year but... better late than never.
Back at work after the holidays and still struggling with getting up on time to get to work - Ahh holiday sleep-ins :)

The holiday period was a nice relaxing break. The biggest excitement: my parents have just bought a puppy - Jasper. He's the cutest little thing and an endless source of amusement. It's so much fun to watch him exploring his new world; his little puppy butt barely keeping up with his tail as it goes crazy in excitement.

Music: Girl Talk
Currently reading: The Immortal Prince by Jennifer Fallon
One of my favourite fantasy authors. I was given the most recent book in her series for Christmas and have gone back to the beginning to read them all again before starting the next installment. One more book then this series is over - I'm looking forward to finding out how it ends.
Mood: thinking I need an early night to compensate for the early mornings.
