  1. Quoting myself with a Twinkie update.....the mom next door ate all the Twinkies herself! 😂She tried them before the kids got home and hid them in her room.......I just gave her kids a Twinkie each so they could try them!
  2. 🤣I just bought two boxes of Twinkies today at Costco because they were so cheap. I gave a box to our neighbor kids (via their mom so no lectures 😉). because they will never have had them and put a couple in the freezer for my kids who had one to try when they were small. The rest will probably go to the kid’s friends unless they really love them. I may have one bite to see if they are what I remember......I wasn’t a huge fan but did like the chocolate ones with the cream in the middle, looked like a cupcake...... In general my tastes have changed but I still enjoy macaroni and cheese which I adored as a kid.
  3. I also wonder if he asked Quill because her Dd is a similar age, therefore Quill should know..........
  4. Trying to remember but I think I had roughly 6 changes for both summer and winter (so 12 suits w/ blouses)so that something could be at the dry cleaners......accountant so suits. I I had maybe 3 dressy casual type outfits that could occasionally be worn to the office.....casual Friday’s started about the time I stopped working in an office.
  5. Dd didn’t manage to read The Martian this trip but will probably read it in the next month so I will post her opinion then. We both watched movies.......Crazy Rich Asians was enjoyed by both of us. Never thought I would watch it after all the hype. I haven’t read the books but now want to. I am curious about what happens next! 😉 I did finish the Cat who Moved the Mountain which definitely is not one of my favorites in The Cat Who......series. I much prefer it when the books are set in the normal location. Too many new characters made this one a bit hard to follow. I think my other travel reads have been abandoned for now.........
  6. I just glanced at this post http://frame.bloglovin.com/?post=6795110409&blog=14225869&frame_type=none is the Tea and Biscuits blog that I very recently started following. The romances on the list that I know I have read are good. ETA.....I just Edited out my question. I looked around on other reviews of this book and think I know. I won’t be reading it.......sorry for the blushes, I thought it was similar to YA. 🤣

    Why, why whyyyyy can't they just get along????

    We called my kids the Bicker Twins for years.........our major rule was no fists(a friend’s 3 threw serious punches) and that parents should not have to listen while trying to drive. It could be pretty dreadful. They grew out of it. They are still highly competitive but generallly don’t get really nasty......now it’s sort of a check your facts comment as both are going into the same field.
  8. Last night I finished Aunt Dimity Detective https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/511257.Aunt_Dimity which is part of a huge cozy series that I have been reading in order. This issue was addressed in the book so I plan to read the next one but...........she keeps getting overly involved with men other than her husband. I don't think I will continue if the trend continues because these are cozies! The mystery was good. In my travel virtual stack I have The Cat who Climbed a Mountain, James Rollins Black Order, and Some Like It Scottish a quilting cozy.

    Book a Week 2019 - BW7: Love is in the Air

    For inquiring minds.......Dd ended up choosing The Martian. Leviathan Wakes did show up so she has that. We also downloaded The Historian and On Basilisk Station as emergency reads. She is a very happy girl! Thanks Robin and Kareni......we also have several hold’s and wish listed for the return trip. eta...She also picked Windswept by Adam Rakunas which was on a recent Sci Fi list.

    Book a Week 2019 - BW7: Love is in the Air

    @Kareni Thank you! Leviathan Wakes just became availiable! She is closer to finished than I realized so will need at least one more book for travel and will need books again in a couple of weeks so maybe some of the hold’s will appear. Maybe Soulwood...... She just finished Goblin Emperor and loved it! Not sure that she feels the need to reread Anne Bishop or Hearne. Wrede and Wynn’s Jones are great ideas because she loved their YA back in the day. The Martian is also a good possibility and availiable. Uprooted is on hold, so are some of Robin’s.

    Book a Week 2019 - BW7: Love is in the Air

    Thank you! I sort of struck out again with these except for Soulwood. These could work but they are quick, my girl reads fast .......I calmed down enough to come up with a couple of others. She is still finishing a paper so we will find her books tomorrow. If anybody has any other ideas I would love to hear them.......

    Sci Fi and Fantasy readers HELP ME PLEASE!!! We are in transit for a couple of days (I will have internet for most of tomorrow btw) Dd had to give up her half read copy of Leviathan Wakes in the library drop off and I have had it on reserve at two Overdrive sources all week. She is next in line twice which does me no good. She is also next in for a couple of others.......We are discouraged and out of ideas..........Give me some titles please! I feel like my mommy pixie dust just crashed. Dd is 20...........
  14. My brother worked for years as a men’s hairstylist. He was located right by the headquarters of a major corporation in the 70’s and 80’s. He did all that top guy’s hair and many of them also had their hair dyed. He was very very good with mixing colors etc and did make a lot of money keeping those guys looking young. This is not a new thing..........

    Treating stutter? Or not?

    No experience with a stutter but both Dh and I saw speech therapists through our schools as children and hugely disliked the experience. I actually quit rather spectacularly on my own......my parents backed me up! 🥰 We were both in agreement not to send Ds, never even considered it. His letters were a combo of ours.which we found interesting....he self corrected over time and has no embarrassment at all. For that matter neither does Dh, give the guy a group and he is happy speaking. I used to speak to large groups frequently and have gotten out of the habit. I do have nerves about it now and am afraid that no one will understand me but I also have the lack of the local accent.......not sure if I would have had anxiety reappear if I had stayed in the Midwest. 😉 One of the dc’s friend’s stutters. According to them he has spent a whole lot of time with speech therapists during his childhood. He is in his early 20’s and we have known him roughly 6 years. When we first knew him it was frequent, now it only under stress. Unfortunately his career desires require public speaking so we will see how it goes. At the same time he is willingly steering himself towards a career that requires a great deal of public speaking so his self confidence is just fine.
