Hey, guess what I did yesterday with the library board.  I spent 3000 clams on books.  It was so fun.  We went into Costco and picked up practically every book on display.  Then we went to a library warehouse and picked up whatever we wanted.  Plus the library payed for lunch at BP's!  I love my new job!  One of the lady's said I need to be contained.  Is that a compliment?

new fav book

Dagga recommended a book to me called "Little Brother" by Cory Doctorow.  IT IS MY NEW FAVORITE. I love books that have so much action you don't have time to breath.  I also love protagonists who are imperfect, but daring and determined.  It is amazing!  Now I just have to make sure I don't plagiarize any of it.
