Hour 11 Ending....12 begins!

Blarrrg! I read 117 pages this past hour and Rocketgirl did 43. We're getting back into our groove. I had a shower and feel tooootally refreshed, and we have oodles of snacks on the way (pics to come). I'm almost done with a graphic novel biography of Chinese magician, Long Tack Sam, and Rocketgirl is finishing up Ghost Beach.

We've been eating healthy for most of the day: cereal, apples and peanut butter, etc. Now we're taking a nosedive into the junk food with hot cheese dip with sausage in it, and Chuck apparently has a basketload of other goodies headed our way. We'll see what he comes up with for our appetizer dinner.

  1. Sounds like a great time to break open the snacks... how great that you're doing the readathon together. The graphic novel that you're reading sounds pretty good!

    I am so jealous of all you manic readers. I am booking the weekend off work for the next readathon NOW. ;)

  2. If your eyes are burning put up a fight
    Cocoa and cookies are yummy at close of day;
    Read, read into the dead of the night.

    Sorry Dylan.

  4. You and Rocketgirl are making me wish I had someone to do a read-a-thon with.

  5. I just told Rod that I feel like I've been eating like I do on road-trips! Too much junk. Next year I'll plan better. More fruit, salad, nuts, and protein. No pizza or subs!!

    Off to the couch with more Joe Hill and Neil Gaiman!

  6. Great job on the reading! I am very impressed!
    Thank you for coming by! I'm glad you liked my cuddle buddies...they kepp me very warm although they don't always let me read. Sometimes they sit on my book! So that's when I switch to another book!

    Good luck with reading! Have fun!

  8. Junk food!!! Aaaah!!! I want junk food!!! But it's one hour before my lunch time here :P Junk food later, specifically chocolate covered corn flakes. Uh, healthy junk food. The corn flakes negate the chocolate :P

    Enjoy reading! Duh, like I needed to say that.

    Cheer! Cheer! Cheer!

  10. I should've held off on my shower until 11 pm! Then I'd be sure to be wide awake for several more hours. Let's see if I can remember this in April...
