I'd say no, but I'd be lying. :D

It made me smile :D :D

I still prefer the sound of a well tuned flat 4, but v8 and 10s do sound nice as well.

whilst mooching on the waterstones site I saw that Charlaine Harris is doing a reading/signing of her latest book
Dead ever after in Brum (there isn't a smilie big enough for the grin that I have) but it's ticketed event fine I prefer those to the queuing ones it was 8:30 and I had to wait an hour before I could phone and order a ticket. MY god an hour has never seemed so long but I got it one of the last ones available coupled with that proof I found a few months ago it's going to be a good signing
also there's a Neil Gaiman event in Brum in two months time which I'm going to make sure I'm there for

I'm smiling because there's nothing that I have to do today. :D Hubby and the girls let me sleep in and I'm still recovering from yesterday. The day ended up working out really well though! I think I really did do myself a big favor by not having the whole family along for the show in the afternoon. Poor Ava was practically a zombie by the last class she competed in. I don't think the girls had gone to sleep before 1am at the sleepover the night before. Vivian took the Champion ribbon in her division and then went and played until Ava was done. She also got to celebrate her birthday with the grandparents in the morning. By the end of the show I was hot (hottest day of summer so far - of course!) and tired and I'm afraid I got a little grumpy. Not one of my most stellar mom moments. :oops:
