~ Haven’t synched Ignacio in awhile. No good reason, just laziness. Am transferring all recent iTunes purchases (hello, The Constellations, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and AI cast recording). Then backing up. Then upgrading to 4.1. Am nervous, very nervous. [ETA: 2 hours to download? Even by broadband? WTH]
~ It feels like summer again, which is pretty cool for a holiday. One last hurrah before fall and winter arrive in earnest?
~ Peanut butter bars were a big hit for the birthday dinner on Saturday, and the leftovers went home with them or to my neighbor. I can NOT have a pan of those in my kitchen, because I’ll take just one little bite. Then another. And then another. And eventually I’ll be in pain and ill from the sugar rush.
~ How much sugar is in Panera’s green tea? I always order it, then remember why I shouldn’t. The first few sips are okay but the rest of the glass is too much.
~ Read and loved Meljean Brook’s The Iron Duke. Bought an ebook edition, and after I was through wished I had a paper book in my hands. As much as I love ebooks, there are times when I prefer paper, especially when it comes to randomly picking up and reading. The book rocked. I stayed up insanely late/early to finish reading it — until 4am Saturday morning. My only real criticism of the book is the family background: Mina’s mother did something horrendous and damaging when she was born, something that symbolizes rejection in the most fundamental way…yet we are never shown how/why that rejection changed to love and acceptance. Was that edited out (its a fairly dense book for romance)?
