Library and comments - some updates

Hello everyone :)

how is life? It's Friday!! Yay! I guess if I'm looking forward to the week-end so much, I don't enjoy my job as I should right? LOL :)

Anyway, no plans for the week-end. I wanted to hang out with my friends, but nobody is available :( However, we have a friend whose birthday is on the 26th, so I guess we'll catch up at that moment.

I went to the library last Tuesday... I was a bit disappointed. The romance section hasn't grown that much. Sure, I could find some new books it didn't have before, but still not that great. Also, they stopped "hardening" the covers of the paperbacks and tradesize paperbacks. Now they just protect the books with plastic :( The good news however is that all the books I wanted it (and check on the catalogue before going) were there. So I got Once in Every Life by Kristin Hannah, a couple of Barbara Michaels, 1 Erin McCarthy vampire series...

By the way, have any of you experiencing trouble with your comments and gmail? I mean, usually, when someone comments on my blog or BT, I get an email sent to my gmail address. However, since yesterday, it doesn't seem like the feature is working. This morning, I tried adding my hotmail address and I got email to the hotmail one, but not gmail. So I'm just wondering if anyone has been experiencing the same problem?

*EDIT: They were all in my spam box!! Why were they there when every other day, they are in my inbox, I have no idea!! Stupid gmail sometimes. Speaking of spam box, anyone has received Maria V. Snyder's newsletter recently (it happened once that it went directly to my spam box @!^&%$@). It's been a while since I got one.

By the way, reading-wise, I've been doing really good... 1 book/night... except for yesterday night where I just crashed and slept... LOL, I guess I've been reading too much instead of sleeping :) Later today, I'm going to cut my hair... must do it. It's long - well at least, for me... I'm cutting it this week to see if I like it or not... if I don't like it, I'll have time to go get a second haircut before Holly's wedding :P speaking of wedding, Ames and I finally chose a hotel to stay at in Las Vegas: Luxor. I'm getting all excited. We have everything booked - plane tickets, hotels in Las Vegas and Laughlin, tickets for "O" and etc. All that's missing is car rental... So I think I'm going to start a list of what I need to bring for the trip this week-end.


  1. Ah....Luxor. You'll enjoy the experience of being in Egypt. It's a fun place and close to walk to New York, New York etc.

    A book a night. I remember those days. Not lately though. Bummer.

    You sound all kinds of excited and it's hard not to catch your enthusiasm. Can't wait to see you!

  2. That's where we stayed when we went. I liked it. Joey was happy cause they had a starbucks.

  3. Well, your library is growing some at least. It is a start. I have become compulsive about checking my Spam folder. I have found lots of author newsletters in them. Mostly it happens at my Yahoo account. But it has happened occasionally at my gmail account. I have also found comments in there as well. I was very irritated. I like the Erin McCarthy series. They are fun.
