Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

nope, lots!

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
genre and authors kept together, books to review in front


  1. I never did acquire a taste for Twizzlers. Licorice, on the other hand,...yum.

  2. Twizzlers rule! The big trek north is not complete without a huge bag of twizzlers. We rationalize this by saying the chewing action keeps us awake and alert for the 2 1/2 days in the car. Yeah, right,like the bag lasts that long.

  3. I have to read books in order too! Twizzlers are a favorite in my family.

  4. I'm the only person who is not going to mention the T word, just to be different. That was fun reading. Loved the pictures!

  5. Yummers.. Twizzlers are terrific.. you know you just keep being mean and throwing in the hammock reference to keep me eternally jealous. :)

  6. I think you've made me crave Twizzlers. I haven't had them in ages. I wish I had a hammock, but I think I'd do more napping than reading.
