Mike surprised me with the new Madonna CD today - it is awesome! I'm sitting here blaring it as I type, which appears to be distressing my husband to no end. Each song is great, but I could do without her voiceover commentary on "Future Lovers" and okay, some of the lines on "I Love New York are hokey ("I don't like cities, but I like New York, other places make me feel like a dork" - WTF?). Say what they will about her, but she's managed to successfully adapt to changing music tastes.

Furiously logging books into LibraryThing.com. I am completely and utterly addicted to this site. I feel like running out to buy more books so I can log them in.

Have to make cornbread tonight for Will's classroom Thanksgiving Day party tomorrow. I'll enlist his help, since he really enjoys cooking. I'll probaby boil up the potatoes for the potato salad tonight too, and make it tomorrow so it has enough time to chill for the recipe. I'm trying a Kraft Kitchen Beta Recipe Makeover of a potato salad (made with light ingredients now). If it works, maybe I'll bring that to Linda's holiday gala event. I'm wondering if I should make my cranberry walnut stuffing since Linda's making a stuffing - Lin, if you are reading this, let me know what you think? I'm also making a butternut squash & apples recipe (finally!) for Thanksgiving - again, if successful, maybe I'll tote that to the Sheridan extravaganza.

Knitting up a storm - finished the left front to the wrap sweater that I ripped out a week or so ago. Lots of fuzzy yarn in the basket for scarves. Still have to get that #(@#&@ yarn for Elizabeth's blanket; I have 17 squares waiting to be sewn together.

Have to try and work on Stacey's wedding CDs - I'll try and pull some pictures off Snapfish today after I finish my latest reader report.

Hey Roe,
I bought the Madonna cd on iTunes last week, totally agree with you about the New York song -I love "How High," "Let It Will Be," and "Hung Up" probably the most...
I'm making apple cornbread stuffing, but yours sounds good too, and with so many people, we'll always need more.

I'm furiously reading Front Row-no wonder she is who she is! Great read.

I am really loving it, "How High" is awesome.

Sure thing on the stuffing. Apple cornbread sounds tasty!

How insane is that book? I loved it, literary (well - maybe not literary, but you get my drift) crack.

I have to start working on my Thanksgiving pies tonight...

And now you've reminded me that I need to get some veggie friendly stuffing together for tomorrow... i won't have time to make my mom's...
