New Book

I have been waiting for a couple books to be brought back to the public library from some lazy readers out there. So for two weeks I've been sans book. I HATE being sans book because I love to read before I fall asleep in my bed with my cozy little pup. Sudoku just isn't cutting it.

So I broke down and bought a couple of books from Borders yesterday. I had a gift certificate from my birthday in October and It was buy one get one half off. I'm a sucker for a deal.

I got I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley. I'm a huge fan of the essays by David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs, so I figured I'd give this chick a try. She's not as funny as Sedaris and not as drunk and damaged as Burroughs -- but I think I like her. I feel as though we would be friends maybe. She has a silly family, and I have a silly family. She collects weird things like figurines of ponies and I collect weird things like Christmas ornaments in the shape of shoes and spoons.

Anyway, I'm only two essays in so it might be too soon to tell. I'll keep you updated...
