After two weeks of polishing (and polishing and polishing and polishing and polishing and … well, you get the picture) the excerpt from one of my diss chapters, I finally handed it in on Tuesday (or rather I uploaded it so our grad student group can crit it and pick it apart and discuss it on Monday). Which meant I took yesterday and today off and metamorphosed into a couch potato. 🙂 Hooray! Unfortunately it’s going to be a rather short-lived couch potato, as I’ll have to start polishing the rest of the aforementioned chapter tomorrow.
Finished reading James Patterson’s (and Gabrielle Charbonnet’s) latest release, SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY’S yesterday — it’s one of the most adorable stories I’ve read in a very long time! The tag line is: “What if your imaginary friend from childhood was your one true love?” (Yes, the book itself is just as sweet as that!) The novel made me cry and made me smile and at the end it made me cry again because it’s such a beautiful ending. *happy sigh* Now I’m reading Patterson’s SAM’S LETTERS TO JENNIFER – Fictionwise is so corrupting me!
As to other news: BEWITCHED got a D from AAR,* which I found out this morning (not a good way to start your day – ouch!). But to make up for it, I got five stars from Happy End Bücher, which I found out this afternoon. In other words, ’twas a day of extremes …
