They say it's your birthday!

Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me!

In honor of my 31st year, I decided it was time to get my hair cut. So, I've gone from mid-back to, as my boss calls it, the "Suri Cruise" bob... Is it just me or do other people feel the need for change around that time of year?

I've been tagged! and other updates...

I've been tagged! Emily tagged me for a literary meme, which is good because I was beginning to feel left out (grin)...

Here are the basic rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Since I haven't read much beyond sewing texts for a while, I picked up an old favorite A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole, arguably a classic of the 2oth century:

"What are you talking about Mr. Reilly?"
"I am talking about the sin against society of which you are guilty."
"What?" Mr. Gonzalez's lower lip quivered.
"Attack!" Ignatius cried to the battalion.

Tagging five people? Josh & Sarah, Chicago Sarah, Lori V, and Jenny

What have I been doing for the past month? I have a few finished items that have to be reviewed, namely BWoF 06-2007-139, Simplicity 4074, and McCall's 5599 view D that I made for my friend Trina.
