Confession: I broke one of my cardinal rules yesterday. I wore a scrunchy in public. I admit it – laugh away please. I’m surprised that I even own one of those things still, but they are just so good for wrapping around buns…usually I have enough self-respect and awareness to take it out before I leave the house!

It was another one of those crazy weekends, but it was fairly enjoyable and productive.

This week I need to return “Twinkie Deconstructed” and “The Girls of Riyad”. I’m not sure I’ll finish Riyad. It’s supposed to be this scandalous account of 4 girls in
