Total Randomness

So today's Friday and I feel kinda like chicken with it's head cut off. I have a million things in my head that I need to do or check on or look up. I have a few tiny little snippets of things I want to post, none of which deserve a post of their own, so here goes:
  • I finished a book! No! Really! Review to come. (Iron Crossed by Patricia Briggs.)

  • Why have so many of my favorite blogs switched to a partial feed?? WHY? (Ok, so like 3, but STILL.) I understand that people have to come to your blog to get money off ads, but I was so much more likely to read the full post then click over to comment than I am to click over to read the whole post.

  • Does anyone read the ending first? I've never done this and I have a bizarre need to try. It feels wierd though.

  • My kid is obsessed with Star Wars, but his favorite is Obi Wan Kenobi. This is one way that we are clearly in a different generation, because wouldn't most of us have said Hans Solo?

  • I've been obsessed with quilting lately.

  • I've (almost) decided on the pink laptop. I think I'm gonna buy a big black and white "Life is Good" sticker to put on it.

  • I wish the snow would melt.



  1. I love those "Life is Good" stickers :)

    Hope you have a good weekend and that you are able to regroup a bit. I am needing a break myself.

  2. I love this pattern--I also saw that you were making a hidden 9 square (or something such), so I googled what that looked like and I love that too. Still on those Hawaiian quilts, though. :)

    Pink Laptop!!! SO jealous.

    I hate partial feed as well and would probably be more likely to hit "mark as read" without commenting

    Reading an ending first always reminds me of When Harry Met Sally. I think I'll watch that movie this weekend.

    Get warm soon--isn't it freakin' spring yet???

    LOL--I now realize that my comment could have been a post of its own. Finding it hard to concentrate on this raining Friday afternoon when half the office is gone. Shhh...don't tell. :)

  3. Ti, I love all the Life is Good stuff. I have a couple of the shirts too. It's expensive and indulgent, but I still love it.

    Trish, The Hawaiian quilts look HARD to me! The pink laptop is a "netbook". It's TINY.

    It is so not spring yet here.

  4. Love the new quilt! I had partial feeds too. And I've never read the ending first, although I did look up the ending for one chunkster I was reading (Pillars of the Earth), because I had decided not to finish it if my favourite characters ended badly. It did feel weird!

  5. Ditto on the snow melting. Anytime now! :-)


  6. Aww, come on and join the dark the end of a book know you want to. ;-)

  7. I really loved obi wan. I'm not the norm from back in the day!

  8. I know how you feel, Lisa! It's been crazy around here too.

    I know what you mean about the partial feed. Unfortunately with the partial feeds, sometimes you don't even get a hint at what to expect. If I'm in a hurry, I tend to skip over those, I admit.

    I've never read the ending first. I don't see why you couldn't give it a try, if you want to thought. The worst that could happen is that you'll feel cheated out of the buildup of surprise.

    I hope you are having a good weekend, Lisa, and get a little time to relax.

  9. I loved Iron Crossed, even though what happened to Mercy near the end made me cry. Can't wait to see what you thought of it.

    I don't know about why people switch to partial feeds. I really prefer full ones in Google Reader, and will generally click through if I want to leave a comment. I'm less likely to click through a partial feed to read the full one honestly.

    I only read the ending first on books I am hating and about to abandon, that way I know how it ends anyway :)

  10. So if everyone hates them, I wonder why partial feeds are so common?

    the snow is all melted!
