It really is a sickness ...

So, today, after battling our way through an hour and a bit of a review with our (for once) kindly demon professor, me and some of the girls (Red, Russian and Smithy) decided to head to Mexicotown for some nummies and then to John King Bookstore to feed the addiction.

Heh heh. Ha.

Here's John King:

Yep - four floors of floor to ceiling books! Amazing, right? And very very very reasonably priced, too! Great staff, a little drafty and some of the most fun you can have in D-Town.

Here's there website if you're ever in Detroit:

Anyways, among the stacks of amazing finds, Smithy and I played a game - it was basically, read the titles of old forgotten books and then say them out loud in a string of events that would create some sort of hilarity.

Trust me - it was great! Things like "Annie's Captain ... Shipwrecked ...on... A Lonley Island ... A great Adventure she's ... THe Nun's Story" tee heee. They were sometimes dirtier, sometimes funnier.

So I bought books, let's not go into how much I spent, but let's list them all for you:

And a really old copy of Victor Hugo's Les Mis

In sum:
Tracy Chevalier's The Lady and the Unicorn, The Girl with the Pearl Earring and Falling Angels
Melissa De La Cruz's Blue Bloods and Masquerade
Jennifer Cruise's Welcome to Temptation
Alan Isler's The Bacon Fancier
Carl Hiaasen's Skinny Dip
Umberto Eco's The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana
Sheri Holman's The Dress Lodger
Brent Monahan's The Blood of the Covenant
The Autobiography of Santa Claus as told to Jeff Guinn

So excited to get started!
I know, I have a sickness ...
But at about $5/book ... how can anyone say no, right?

Anyways, onwards and upwards...
The boy is in Colorado for a week. Good for him, sucks for me with this stupid midterm.
Life, right?

Now I sit here listening to Lauryn Hill (seriously, love her want her - where is she?) and eating my decadence of the day: mini eggs. Oh why did the Russian let me keep these?

Rain, rain, raining all day.
Life, again.
Only wet this time.

Should be studying @$$ off for this midterm, but feel okay after that review session this morning. Pitiful turnout, but then that's law school for you! Shout out to the Puppy Mummies for coming out, too.

Need to get on painting too. Sigh. Painting. I want my camera fixed. Then I can add pictures! :D

Start on review again on Monday!
Cheerio! :)
