I bought the books for their covers.

I never can resist walking by The Strand. Today I had to buy a dozen old school books because of their cover art. Now what to do with them all? (After I read them of course.)

I'm considering turning one into a clutch by hollowing out the pages and adding a clasp. This way, I'll always look smart when I go out.

Anyone need pictures of Colonial Lighting? If so, let me know. I have a surplus.

I am also now the proud owner of the following titles:
"Everyday Weather and How it Works"
"The Chinese Civil Service"
"Soviet Foreign Policy"
"Modern Women in Love"
"Conditioned Reflexes"

Please let me know if you need the knowledge from any of these resources before I destroy them with craft projects.

Someday I will write for Sweethearts.

In the spirit of starting Megan NYC Adventure Chapter 2 tomorrow morning, I was cleaning out my room and came across two boxes of Sweethearts (original and dazzled edition).

First of all, the dazzle edition is exactly like the regular candies except the blue hearts have sparkles. (I'm not sure what eating sparkles does to your body. We will find out.) However, out of 66 sweethearts, only 40 are legible. Come on Sweethearts, what do you think you’re a candy or something? You were intended to be read first, and then consumed. Get your priorities straight.

On that note, I’m adding write for Sweethearts to my list of things to accomplish before I die. “Tweet me” was a great edition, but I’d like to see some more customized sets. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the “I don’t have a sweetheart” edition for those who are loveless on V-Day, or maybe even a state of the nation set.

Until then, check out the Sweetheart sayings over the past decade for an interesting look at pop culture and technology.
