Neither here nor there

Is it just me or does it feel like Friday? Just wishful thinking.
It's a brain dump sort of day.

First, you must check out this song released last week by Willow Smith, Will and Jada Pinkett's daughter.
She's incredibly talented and adorable and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't whipping my hair back and forth all day.


----------------------------------------

I have a new favorite internet game. I rarely play games, but my previous two favorites were Bejeweled Blitz and Scramble.

http://apps.facebook.com/travelpod-challenge/

It's a geography game that lists cities and famous places and you have to click on the map where it is located. The faster you click and the closer you are to the target, the more points you get.
I justify playing this by telling myself it's educational. (Just like Scramble improved my vocabulary and Bejeweled Blitz my strategy and spacial abilities)

------------------------------------------

Have you read The Help? I just finished it and really enjoyed it--honest, poignant, and personal. A friend of mine out here is from Jackson, MS and we are getting together on Monday to chat about the book and her experience in Jackson 30-50 years after the book was set.

The Help

------------------------------------------

I saw this story on Cup of Jo's weekend round up and gasped. It's one of those stories that someone would fantasize could happen--what if I stepped back in time and everything was just like it was 70 years ago?
And here it is, come true--in Paris, no less!


Makes me wonder what kept the owner from ever coming back?

Hope you're having a happy Thursday!

I totally woke up this morning thinking it was Friday! Such a bummer that it isn't!

I would give most anything for it to be Friday! I downloaded a sample of "The Help" on my nook, and it's on my list of "to read"s but first I'm going with "A Year of Living Biblically"

Looove "The Help"- I was in Jackson for work recently and ate at one of the older restaurants in town, where parts of the movie was filmed this summer. It made me ridiculously exciting... :)
