4 Truths and a Theory

Truth #1: Apples taste better when you eat them without cutting them up.  This is just a fact.

Truth #2: I am a nerd and I really like that about myself.  First, I know way to much about Lord of the Rings and I'm secretly proud of it.  And, just to add to my nerdiness,  last Friday I created a website, I mean I started from a black notepad document and when I finished I had a decent website.  The great part is I enjoyed it.

Truth #3: A friend offered to go with me to give blood.  Now I don't have to go by myself!  Goal #22...Here I come.

Truth #4: Digital readers like the Kindle, will never replace the wonderful feeling I get when I pick up a book and it smells like old paper, dust, and a little like my grandma's house.  New electronics are great, but they can't replace the feeling I get when I'm reading and all of a sudden I realize I've read more than I have left. And I can't put it down becuase I know in my bones the ending is going to be amazing; and slowly the pages on the right grow thinner and thinner as the book comes to an end.

Theory: Graduate students don't give hugs.  A friend told me this last night.  I hope it isn't true or this could be the longest two years of my life.

I would like to always be witty or wise, but most days I feel fanciful instead.

Yours affectionately,
