[Unpacked my kitchen stuff and my appliances are all out on the counter. Easy access = actual use. Smoothies FTW!] | [Saks September Fashion catalog. I don't shop at Saks, but apparently my landlord's daughter does. And since they don't actually live here, what's the harm in browsing the pages a little, right?] | [Lip gloss pencil] | [Last night's game. We lost, but I got to spend a wonderful 3 hours staring at Tony Romo walk the sidelines with a headset on]

It's been exactly a week since our stuff was finally delivered, and I've been in major unpacking and cleaning mode all week (with a small project for my old employer thrown in...yay for work!). The dust is really kicking my allergies and eczema into high gear, so we're heading to Ikea this weekend to grab some more storage and unpack the rest of this stuff. Things are fitting in quite nicely, though!

I’m stalking my friend, Cindy Sample, because while she’s just sent her second mystery novel off to the publisher, she continues to tirelessly promote her current novel, Dying for a Date.

I recently read Dying for a Date, a humorous mystery set in Placerville and El Dorado Hills, and was taken aback when one of the characters (albeit brief) was named Margie Andrews. Can you believe it? I’m in her book!

By the way, don’t call me Margie; I hate that. I will pull the car over to the side of the road and beat you senseless with my jumper cables if you ever call me Margie.

But I’m forgiving Cindy because she didn’t know any better. Plus, she didn’t know me, literally, when she wrote Dying for a Date.
