I'm behind on my journal reading/responding. [livejournal.com profile] edithspage and [livejournal.com profile] dawn_metcalf tagged me in awesome memes. Here they go:

Meme #1
Off the top of your head, what are the last five things that made you smile?

1. Holding my high school friend's baby, Amare. I even got to read him a bedtime story this weekend.
2. Hearing my best friend laugh last night over the phone. That woman cracks me up!
3. Listening to music with my sister yesterday. We have such common music tastes.
4. Thinking about my good friend Elana and how happy I am for her future. She's engaged!
5. RSVP-ing for Elana's New Years Eve party at her house.

Meme #2
1) Open the closest book - not a favorite or most intellectual book - but the book closest at the moment, to page 56
2) Write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five sentences following
3) tag five innocents [or more]
4) or take it a step further and do the same for your manuscript

Fun, you know, is serious. I know just how hard he worked on his themes, and the effort that he put into doing things just so that it sounded effortless, or sounded natural, or sounded easy, but in fact, it wasn't.

From Monk's Music: Thelonious Monk and Jazz History in the Making by Gabriel Solis

Yea! Another smile to add to the list and I've been meaning to finish this book. It sits next to my nightstand, and I'm still in my pjs typing on my laptop from the bed. I've got some Christmas shopping to finish today (yes, I'm a procrastinator) and one of these errands involves picking up NEED by [livejournal.com profile] carriejones. I'm going to take pictures at the store, if it isn't too crowded (because we writers are shy). Off I go! I tag [livejournal.com profile] teepleacres, [livejournal.com profile] stinglikeabee, [livejournal.com profile] wordweaver78, and [livejournal.com profile] terrafanti.
