I'm still around

Haven't fallen off the face of the earth, just busy. Or perhaps boring. Did I run out of things to say? GASP!

Anyone have any questions for me that they've been desperate to know the answers to? Like what are the weirdest things I've eaten this pregnancy? (If you ask my family/friends, they'll say rye toast with grape jam or matzo with sunflower butter, bananas, and chocolate syrup. However, I must admit I've eaten those things plenty of times without being pregnant.) Or, what's the most annoying question you get asked regularly as a mother of twins? (Do you watch Jon and Kate Plus Eight? NO!!!! I loathe that show! They're awful, and I saw Jon speak at the last Mother of Twins National Convention and he, excuse my language, came off as a total wanker. Despite that, though, I hope the current rumors about them aren't true...). Or, have I ever ridden a unicycle? (Yes, poorly. Mostly I fell off said unicycle). Or, what's the most recent odd ailment I've diagnosed myself as suffering from, thanks to the internet, boon to all hypochondriacs? (Mal de debarquement syndrome, to explain why I feel sick for days after flying, and to add to my fear that next time I fly, the awful feeling will last for the rest of my life instead of just a few unbearable days).

See, I'm full of randomness, and free to answer most any question!

So bring it on! (Number of Bring It On movies seen? Three. Number of Bring It On movies enjoyed? Embarrassed voice: Three.)

I just finished Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. It was super, and I hope to get a review up on The Book Nook soon. Funny, enjoyable, and probably my favorite book I've read this year. The kind of book that's going to make me seek out all the other books Christopher Moore has written, so be prepared to be subjected to the likes of author-fandom you haven't seen since the days of my obsession with Michael Chabon's novels...

Many thanks to Alyssa for recommending this one. As an aside, have you checked out her (and her husband's) photography blog? The pictures are amazing, and it's really funny. They took pictures of B-man and N-man this January when we were visiting WNY, and they're my all-time favorite pics of the boys. Thanks again!

A number of my favorite bloggers also seem to be on a hiatus, or at least posting less frequently. Is it something in the internet-air??

Welcome Back! I've been missing my daily dose of your zany-ness! Who had a unicycle? Always wanted to try one...

Definitely feels like there's something in the virtual air. I have to stretch to find things to say...

Spring is in the air!! I hope your enjoying it! I saw you today by preschool, engrossed in a book...hope it's a good one!

Fewer posts and, I've noticed everywhere, fewer comments.

Speaking strictly for myself, springtime brings a lot of new tasks (planting, trimming, weeding, watering) and no extra hours, so my blogtime is suffering.

I also read Lamb on Sis's recommendation and enjoyed it. Another that she suggested was Round Ireland with a Fridge. Which although stupid and funny was another enjoyable read.

Premise- I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitchhike round the circumference of Ireland, with a fridge, within one calendar month'. A foolhardy attempt to win a drunken bet led to Tony Hawks having one of the most unforgettable experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty travelling-companion-cum-domestic-appliance, he found himself in the midst of a remarkable, inspirational and, at times, downright silly adventure.

I never seem to have enough time to blog or to read...

"Lamb" is one of my all time favorite books! You've got to read "Dirty Job" or "Fluke" I've read most of his books - but those along with "Lamb" are my favorites.

Have you read anything by Ariana Franklin? Might not be your style - but check her out. I really liked "City of Shadows"

I think it's spring in the air. Whether it's spending more time outside or spending more time with school or end-of-the-year school stuff. I, for one, do neither, so I'm still posting as much as ever.

Oh, golly, I love those Bring It On movies. Glad I'm not alone.

Is rye toast and grape jelly weird? Hmmm. Of course I don't eat that. ;)
