Just a quickie, lots of thoughts

Leg is looking much better. Of course, it doesn't help that my legs are deathly pale (comes from my Norwegian heritage, I'm sure) and so the colors stand out even more. Though there is a lovely shade of purple in there in spots. Wonder if I could get it color-matched at Sears.

Fashion Don't seen at SuperTarget: If you're not 5'9"+ and a size 2 or below, do NOT wear cropped pants with knee-high stiletto boots. You just look stupid. Trust me. I don't care if it's the trend right now. You look like you've tried waaaaaay too hard. Please, retire the cropped pants now that fall is arriving.

Car Don't seen on the way back from the cat show: Skull decal on the windshield doesn't really go with a wood-paneled minivan. It just looks well....stupid.

Read a interesting gothic mystery (and mostly set in 1973 London) from a new-to-me author. Got Seventy-Seven Clocks by Christopher Fowler from a Bantam Dell reader-reviewer contest. Fascinating book and hard to put down. I'm going to have to find the previous two books in the series. I also liked how I didn't feel like I missed anything by not having read them before this one. Comes out the end of November. Highly recommended.

Other than that, haven't been reading too much it seems. Well, read some Doc Savage. Whenever I can't think of anything to read at night after the lights are out, I turn to those. They just don't seem to really get old.

Walked to SuperTarget on...hmmm...yesterday? We were trying to find some specific blank dvds, but didn't find them. I did have a weak moment and bought It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas. I really was going to get Learning Curves by Cindi Myers, but I keep putting it down. I like books that deal with weight and weight loss, but well, lol I can't bring myself to take this one too seriously when they say she's a size twelve on the back blurb.

Also went to the bookstore a few days ago. What did I buy? Erm, a Next book. Pelican Bay by Charlotte Douglas. I'd heard it was an interesting mystery. Also Purrfect Love, an anthology with a seriously cheesy cover. Hey, cats, couldn't resist. Oh, and Double-Cross by Meredith Fletcher. I keep collecting the Athena Force Bombshell books, but have only read the first three. Figured out I was missing this one and now I really have no excuse not to read them and get it over with. I'm a nut.

I think I need to make a blog post about all the bookmarked books I have lying around the house. And dammit, someone from PBS needs to post the new Lunas. I'm first in line on the wishlist, but no books. *sigh*

There was some book I read where the heroine mentioned she was a size 8 "and that's all I'm going to say about that," and remember thinking, "yeah, because size 8, whoo! You're as big as a house!"

If youre going to have a fat heroine, make her fat. Not just-not-anorexic.

You know, you shouldn't feel like a klutz if you're pale...the bruising just shows up a lot more. Trust me, I'm white as a flake of snow, and always have mysteriously-appearing bruises. And I've never even heard of SuperTarget, although I love the regular Target.

No SuperTarget? *gasp*

It's like Target, but it's got a nice grocery store added. I swear I'm there three or four times a week getting stuff.
