Song of the day: For some reason I have the song “Only In My Dreams” by Debbie Gibson in my head. I must be paying off some bad karma. Real bad karma.
State of mind: OK

The book clubs are out to get me. I must be a prime target because in the past week alone I have gotten four different clubs sending me enticing packets promising lots of bound goodies for just “1 dollar a piece if you join today!” I would only have to buy 2 more in the next few years, because buying only a few of anything is what I excel at. (That is sarcasm by the way.)
And I fall for it. Every time.
I resisted three of them. (Progress.)
That’s ok though. I don’t need to eat, or pay my bills. I can burn the books for warmth… and accidentally start a riot. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
And to make matters worse, I stopped at my local bookstore to pick up a calendar for my wall at work. (I got one with Mountain Lions. Some people will understand why.) But because I can’t resist browsing in a bookstore I ended up buying Wicked, the tale of Oz from the Wicked Witch of the West’s perspective. And when you think about it, she is the one who was wronged. Dorothy killed her sister and stole her shoes. Why shouldn’t the Wicked Witch be able to send a fleet of flying monkeys after that thieving punk?
I also picked up the special edition of Scientific America. They also have a book club. No matter where I go…
It’s a conspiracy. I just know it.
Health update: still no McDonalds. In fact, I ate a salad today. And yesterday. And the day before yesterday. I am really beginning to hate salads.
