Today is a HUGE birthday day amongst my family and friends.
My sweet niece, who often drives me crazy, is celebrating her birthday in Disney World.
Happy Birthday, Hailey-Bug!

My big sis, far away in Hawaii enjoying the sun and surf (in theory).
Happy Birthday, Tracy!

My favorite bibliophile who moved across the country but still manages to keep in touch like a CHAMP and prod me to write my part of our Zompocalypse story!
Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] oddmonster!

That's a lot of birthdays. I'm all worn out now.

Anyway. Onto the not as joyous stuff. As you can see, I'm online again after the Great Computer Outage of 2011. The technician ran a slew of tests and everything came back looking good. He admitted that there's been a lot of calls about slow and non-responsive internettedness and it looks like there are just too many people using too little ... whatever it's called. So, yeah. That sucks. But we're back up and running and we're going to try to keep track of when and how often we lose connection to see if it's worth changing providers. I'm not feeling terribly optimistic about this, to be honest. Meh. We'll see.

I have a ton of stuff to talk about but I'm going to talk book for a minute and save the funny stuff for tomorrow. Maybe.
Book #285 - Changeless (The Parasol Protectorate #2) by Gail Carriger - These books are so freaking FUNNY. I love the tone they're written in and how utterly absurd some of escapades the characters find themselves in the middle of are.
Book #286 - Lights, Camera...Monsters (Monsters in Hollywood #1) by Lila Dubois - I know these books won't be for everyone but I thought this one was sexy and fun. Sex with monsters! Who knew I'd get such a kick out of it?

Out of the blue today, my mom says "One month until the kids are back in school." It really does seem like they just finished school and now we're going to have to gear up for a new year. Crazy.

Okay. I'm off to finish the 3rd Parasol Protectorate book.
Later.

Thank you for the birthday wishes! Now go write me 800 more words! Or...eight, really. :P

Ha! I totally set myself up for that, didn't I?
