yeah yeah: i get a new toy and there goes all my attention. try as i might to stay focused and on track with everything i need to get done, i admit i have been rather distracted by all the shiny.
and then there's this: so tempting.....
hopefully this weekend won't be as lost as the last one.
i am still working on setting up a new blog. and i keep meaning to post a review of the last Zola book that i read, L'Assommoir. i've also read a couple of other books in the interim. needed a wee break from Zola. love the series, but it can be heavy and that last book was a lot to digest. so i am reading some trashy fiction as a palate cleanser (about which i shall also report).
otherwise it's a rainy saturday and i am itching to spend money (see what happens when the IRS sends you a check?). i spent the morning antiquing (without luck), but i have also been very naughty browsing eBay and there's plenty of danger there. i'm looking for an antique lap desk. or something like that. because i am nothing if not completely impractical.
and no, i don't see anything schizophrenic about buying an iPad 2 and a 19th century lap desk. same technology, different eras.
