*Wandered over to Canal Street (Chinatown) yesterday and saw that the fake Birkin bags are $250!! Note to self: purse fetish must be put on hold when even Chinatown is out of my current price range.
*I'm rereading Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, an amazing book about writing. Favorite quote so far:
"For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die."
This quote exemplifies why Belle ("Beauty") is one of my favorite Disney princesses: because she reads!! I am guilty of hoarding my books, refusing to give them away (even the Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary ones I should have outgrown by now). Perhaps the Kindle was made for people like me....
*Dove has come out with milk chocolate with almonds...yay! Today's message: "Carve out a moment just for yourself."
*The writing project is just as daunting as it's always been. I've read about a couple of people knocking out 100 pages in a day and I am so impressed!! I love connecting with other writers and seeing how well they execute their potential.
*I realize this is a peculiar obsession, but I LOVE office supplies. Post It came out with 8 X 6 pads. Needless to say, I went on a Staples shopping spree.
