I sure have neglected my blog this month, and I've neglected reading my faves as well. I really like blogging. There are plenty of things to share. I've just been lazy I guess. 

I got to see Kevin Bacon tonight. Un-pixelized. In the same room. He is freaking cute, looks like the type to dance all night and can play a ridiculous number of instruments. If this is news to you, go check out The Bacon Brothers. Of course, that he's cute is not news. One of my favorite songs is Memorize. Beautiful. 

I just got an e-mail for NaNoWriMo. That was a complete failure last year. I could try again and aim for consistency. I did write 6,000 words. Maybe 6,005 could be a goal.

Poetic truths spoken by Frederick Douglass. I had the good fortune of coming across them today on a monument to the man in a park.

Thank You for Raking

I want to thank that guy who was raking his yard as I went by on my run tonight. I don't care so much that you are tidy. I am just thrilled that you are not using a leaf blower! I heard the quick rustle of the leaves as I approached and enjoyed the sound as you shot a rake-full up a three foot pile. For a split second I thought about jumping in it and how much fun that was as a kid. Thank you Rake Guy for filling the neighborhood with pleasant sounds. Me, I will let the leaves rot right into my lawn and blow all over my neighbors yards come spring. My dear husband is a better person than me though, and once they all fall, he will probably go rake them up. I could be persuaded to help if it's a beautiful day out.

While I'm at it, I also want to thank my library. Not only can I read more books than I'd ever have room to keep at my house if I bought them, but you actually send me an e-mail reminding me the day before they are due. As if that weren't enough, you also include a link for me to renew online in case I won't be able to make it. So, dear person at the library who thought this up and also to the no doubt group of people who made it happen: You rock.

Seriously - Go Play!

How am I supposed to get anything done with all this fun stuff to play with?

Go! Play!

I found this on the most fun website ever. The site seems to have no other purpose except to get you to play so it's a very noble purpose indeed.
