I have writers block today. I think I may have officially run out of things to talk about. How did this happen? Damn it.
Well, I can aways talk about myself. And what a better place to do that than my blog. So here are some random findings from around the internets that have amused me.
I recently received a Facebook friend request from a college friend that I haven't seen or heard from in ages! Don't you just love Facebook for that reason alone? I knew she moved to Chicago after graduation, but she recently moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands! Her and her husband both lost their jobs, so they figured it was the perfect time for them (plus their pup) to move to St. Thomas! How cool is that?! She's bartending and he's a golf pro at a resort down there and they're just living life and having fun. I can't even begin to explain how horribly jealous I am of this.

So the next big thing in reading are the new e-readers. Undoubtedly you've heard of the Kindle and the Nook and all the others out there. Similar to an ipod, but for books, not music. I know a few people who have them and they LOVE them! I've considered an e-reader, but I don't think I'll ever get over the desire to have the actual physical paper book. Maybe it's the collector in me, but I love looking at all my books lined up on the shelves. It makes me feel proud to have read them all. I would even go so far as to say that I hoard books. I don't even like lending books to friends because I know I'll never get them back. I'm a freak like that. However, if you are interested in the new e-readers, For the Love posted a great review on the Barnes and Noble Nook. Read it HERE.
Thyme for Wine posted a recipe for mint chocolate chip cookies that made me drool all over my keyboard at work. You can get her recipe HERE.
Fresh Local and Best posted the most amazing pictures of The Lobster Place in Chelsea Market in NYC. WHY don't I live in NYC so I could shop here every single day. Lobster and crab. Shrimp, snapper and sardines. Trout, tuna and turbot. Oysters and urchin. I'm freaking starving now! Check out the post HERE.
Living with Lindsey posted a really cute DIY project to make a fabric heart wreath, just in time for Valentine's Day. How cute is this?! Check out here post HERE.
