gotta be cool, relax, get hip, get on my tracks

I don’t have any finished book reviews and my shoulder is giving me grief again after feeling better at the end of last week, so today you get links instead! Isn’t this fun? 😉

Just in time for Christmas: Star Wars paper snowflakes! These look really cool, and if I were more artistically inclined (and had blank paper) I’d definitely give them a go. Instructions and templates are found on the second page of the article.Paper snowflake with the likeness of Darth Vader's head at the end of each 'spoke'

This has been rolling around the internet for a few weeks now, but in case you haven’t seen it, Nat-2 are soon to release their totally awesome Stack4in1 Shoe range.  They’re shoes!  That transform!  Seriously!  Would I lie about something this geeky?

Speaking of tea, Shui Tea is selling The Vodka Infusion Pack, tea that can be infused in vodka, instead of water, for (allegedly) tasty vodka-based cocktails.

I am tired.  I’m working on (but have not quite finished) two new book reviews, and I have a chiropractor appointment and my math final in a few hours.  Also, it is snowing again.

But after that, I’m free for a while.

you know what I love?

EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!

So my Christmas present arrived early yesterday, instead of the ~two weeks Roger was given as estimated delivery.  And I got to open it!

It’s a Kindle! And a pretty leather case!  And I am so frickin’ excited and it is the best gift ever!

It also came with a gift card.  Considering my undying love for Caroline Linden after she sent me a free ARC of A Rake’s Guide to Seduction, I had to make my first Kindle purchase the other two Reece books, What a Gentleman Wants and What a Rake Desires.  Unsure what to spend the rest of it on so far, but there is no rush.  I also grabbed a few of Amazon’s free ebooks, so there are lots of potential book reviews incoming.  As well as a post about the utter fail that is Sl. L. Farrell’s A Magic of Twilight.

I took the Kindle for its first outing today, to the walk-in medical clinic with Roger, and it was awesome for reading while in the waiting room.  I will have to do a full review/squee at some point, perhaps with pictures.  But right now I am off to beat my remote into submission so I can catch up on this week’s Dancing With the Stars.

Paladins Do Not Make Good VikingsToday didn’t go quite as planned.  We were originally going to the mall to get my sunglasses fixed and do some window shopping, but it took Roger forever to find the inclination to get ready.  Transformers’ online PvP was much more interesting than plans.  So instead we went out for KFC for dinner and stopped by the local sex toy shop on the way home.  My Hitachi Magic Wand is still out of commission, so a new toy was definitely in order.

I spent some time lusting over the shiny Lelo toys and other assorted V Expensive Items, before eventually settling on an adjustable-strength bullet with three textures silicone sleeves.  I can’t remember the brand name off the top of my head.  And I got a $20 off coupon for December!  There may have to be another trip out there next month…

Once we got home, there was nothing we could do but try out my new toy.  I’ll post a full review some time later this week after I’ve had more time to play, but first impressions are quite positive.  Then Roger made me tea – orange pekoe with milk, which was v nice – and he headed downstairs to his computer while I’m catching up on my tv shows (and blogging, obv).

All in all, a pretty good day.

And now back to Big Bang Theory. ❤ Sheldon.

That would be A for Awesome.

Count yourselves fortunate.  I have had The Day From Hell, and on my way finally-heading-home I was planning a ranting entry today, instead of the linkspam and beef stew crockpot recipe that I had originally planned.

But!  I arrived home to find my second set of plans awry, because I am just Too Damn Excited to write the rant.

The lovely Caroline Linden had agreed to send me an old ARC of her 2008 novel A Rake’s Guide to Seduction, which was sitting in the mailbox when I got home, much to my excitement.  So now my plans for the remainder of the afternoon are to sit down with a cup of orange pekoe and start in on Rake while the stew happily simmers away in the crockpot… Mmm.

But worry not.  I will probably rant tomorrow instead.
