It's definitely March in Texas. Two days ago, it was 80 degrees outside. Yesterday, it snowed. It started right as I was going to class, and three hours later, there was a good four-inch coat of it on my car. No ice in Denton, really (which is weird for us - we usually skip snow entirely and go straight to ice), but quite a bit of snow. My hands were numb with cold by the time I finished brushing the worst of it off so that I could drive, but it was pretty. And today, it was nice out again. A little cool, but nice. Maggie and I took a walk, and I didn't even take a jacket. On the way home, we saw what was left of a snowman outside someone's apartment, holding a pack of cigarettes in his twig hand. Ah, Denton.

Well, I voted. The energy in the place was high. Most Democratic primaries in Texas are sparse, but there had apparently been a steady stream all day, because the volunteers were excited! They were so happy that so many young people were showing up. It was a really fun experience. I was so pumped up by the time I left that I couldn't go right to sleep for the day (hence the walk later), and I ended up sleeping through the caucus, so I only got to vote once (you know, like the rest of the country). But I did vote.

I just read Insecure at Last by Eve Ensler. This is one of my most favorite books ever. I'm going to have to buy it, because I want to read it over and over again. And I have got to get to New Orleans for V10. Must! *plots*

Books 2007

I started off the year with a goal of 50 books. I am happy to report that I exceeded it.

I also started off the year by asking what authors my flist and my face-to-face friends like and, in doing so, found quite a few new favorites. So thanks for that!

Here is the list for 2007: )

And, to start the new year off, I have a new goal. I think I'm going to try for 75 this year. I'm currently working on the following:

Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith by Kathleen Norris
Divine Nobodies: Shedding Religion to Find God by Jim Palmer
The Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club: True Tales from a Magnificent and Clumsy Life by Laurie Notaro (how is it that I have never read this one?)
Life After God by Douglas Coupland
Girlfriend in a Coma by Douglas Coupland
Why Moms are Weird by Pamela Ribon
Tomcat in Love by Tim O'Brien

Two questions to enhance my already ridiculous reading list:
1. What was the best book you read (that you would recommend) in 2007?
2. What are you reading now?
