Uh you've got a little something....

So I had an interesting seat on the bus, once I got on the right one that is, this evening. I was sitting behind a gentleman who had his face tattooed (sp?). On one cheek he had a snarling wolf and on the other it was cat (panther perhaps) staring out of a blood red eye. Then he also had his neck tattoo's a bunch of different little bits of bright ink. Out of all of them and they were very well drawn, very detailed and artistic the ones that squicked me out were the neck ones.

*shudder* Just the very thought of a needle piercing the skin over and over and over again right over the big veins in the neck ....ACK !

I just finished a rather lovely pumpkin spice latte from The Second Cup. Nice and spice filled, heavy on the nutmeg I believe. I treated my sister to a butter pecan one, and I think next time I will try another flavour just to go through the list....ooooh or maybe one of those frozen hot chocolate things I've been meaning to get one of those for ages. I'll wait till a warmer evening though, when the cold beverage will not hasten my fears of hypothermia.

Things I like

Books are at the the very top of my list. I've enjoyed book for ever so long, I've been known to read several books in one day. Today's count was two. They arrived in the mail from Chapters, the postperson (it was a guuurrrrrrrrl who done brought dem) rang the bell and even though I should have been doing all sorts of productive things with my day off I instead succumbed to the lure of the unread books ripped open the package and by turn was immersed in the supernatualal world of a telepathic barmaid and then in a plague ravaged Canada as a mountie and her partner solved a mystery and stopped a mass outbreak. Fun Stuff.

The other two books I've read this weekend are my copy of "Dark Need" that I won as an ARC and although I enjoyed the book I'm also secretly relieved that I didn't have to pay for it...even though when it came out if I didn't already have it I would have bought it. Also after lurking on another website I came out with a reccomendation for another paranormal romance about a shifter woman who turns into a fox in New York City and the trouble that occurs when the "Others" are on the verge of being outed to the general public.

The other things I like.

Chocolate, oooh and of course my bestest friend in the whole big wide world she who knows the meaning of bingo money and understands the words Bill, salvation arms etc. feeling healthy..(not so much the working out but after...doesn't suck), Hugh Jackman, Battlestar Galactica, comics, music, chocolate, books that I want to re-read, accents like Irish or Scottish, ice cream, laughing, shoes, laundry dried on the line, purring cats, sooooo much more.

Okay I'm going to try and be better about the bloging, hope I can be disciplined enough.
