Just stuff

Oh man, today has been a day. I don't really want to go into it. But there was also reading, which involved Around the Moon, which is kiiiind of what I was afraid From the Earth to the Moon would be, which is why I wasn't sure I'd like the latter. The latter was really very good, and the former is still pretty good, but it's definitely more full of facts and figures. It's like Five Weeks in a Balloon, only with less to see, and simultaneously more agoraphobia and claustrophobia. This is why I'm not interested in space travel or ocean exploration (hmmm...how will this factor in when we get to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea?).

There was also shoujo manga, which was much more lighthearted (lightheaded, too, as in, easy on the brain) and fluffy. But I'm having an emotional day, so it almost killed me. Nevertheless, I love it.

Today I'm thankful for getting to read some good books, getting to bake some cookies (with heart sprinkles!), getting to eat those cookies very soon, getting a call from Grawp and Hagger (and them almost not fighting this time!), and being here on good old Earth.
