Anyway, my apartment is a mess, and my eating/gym-going routines aren't what I'd like them to be, but I will work on these.
I've been keeping up with reading everyone's blogs, but I haven't commented in couple days. Many I'll go on a comment spree tomorrow night.
However, lots of excitement in the way of candy!
My Kindle and its pretty green case arrived today! Perfect timing, as I had 15 pages left of "One Day". Oh, and by the way, really great NON-CORNY romance. Loved it.
My first e-book will "The Postmistress" by Sarah Blake. It took me half an hour to find/select which book I wanted to start with. Also, I find it hard to read a new book after you finish a good book. Often, I wish the good book had just kept going.
Oh, and since I'm hoping the arrival of the Kindle will mean that I go on a reading spree, book recommendations from you to me are strongly encouraged. Anything great I should read?
More candy: I've discovered the show Modern Family on DVD. HILARIOUS. Love it. I can't decided who my favourite character is: Gloria and Cameron are both hilarious. And Manny too. Seriously, if you haven't seen the show, check it out. I missed the season premiere tonight, but I'll catch up.
In an annual tradition, I watched the Polaris Prize being streamed online while making some snarky and some sincere remarks on MSN with a blog buddy who no longer blogs. There were four albums nominated that I loved, yet of course, none of them were the winner. (Karkwa won. They were all right.) The performances that I caught were great! However, the standout of the night were Tegan and Sara doing stripped down a couple of their songs with the always amazing Owen Pallett joining on violin. I seriously got teary eyed during the performance below. I can sometimes get emotional at the drop of a hat. Anyway, watch this. Awesome.
All right, I'm off to read my Kindle. I'll let you know what it's like! Oh, and I'm so glad I got a Kindle instead of the Kobo which Chapters is selling. It's gorgeous, whereas the Kobo seems a little chintzy to me.
