Bloggy Stuff

So very soon I will be writing a review of Gayle Roper's new book Fatal Deduction. Its a mystery that incorporates crossword puzzles. I'll also be giving away a copy or two, so if you are interested in winning, leave a comment with your favorite puzzle game. My addiction is Sudoku. I spend way too much time playing. I even have a special "Sudoku stance" where I hunch over my laptop with 100% concentration, my husband knows better than to talk to me when I'm in the middle of a puzzle.

I was at the DMV yesterday and I think it would be a fun place to people watch. I was there for my license. The kid in front of me was a newly 21 year old, and the guy behind me was a hispanic person, who had brought along his boss to translate. I find it amusing that no one seemed to smile for their picture. Don't they realize if they ever get kidnapped or commit a crime, thats going to be the picture on the news? I refuse to look like a criminal, but I guess a lot of people just don't care.

Work has been so busy and draining the past few weeks. I get home and I just want to crash. This week should hopefully be the end of crunch time. I have a good new friend there, that makes time go by faster. Plus, I have been volunteering to help in the fundraising for the St. Louis Race for the Cure. Things are winding down, registration ends today. Then we have just a couple more things to do and we are done! I really do think its a good cause, but its just been sapping up all my time and volunteering at work while learning a new job has been a challenge.

The Soduku Stance, lol! My husband could always tell when I was playing Spider Solitaire, too.

The book sounds very really interesting. I love word games...scrabble, upwords and boggle.

The DMV is my second favorite place to people watch. The BEST EVER people watching was at a Monster Truck Rally we attended when Jericho was about 5 or 6. Oh, man...America's Most Wanted should have been there, scanning the crowds!

I do the crossword, word jumble and sudoku every single day at lunch with the 'old' ladies in my office. My officemate makes fun of me for it but I don't care. I love puzzles!

And good for you helping out with Race for the Cure! That's an awesome thing to do!
