Garrison Keillor's A Christmas Blizzard had me rolling with laughter, especially reading half-page-long sentences. I'm going to have to ask a North Dakotan friend of mine if this is really how the natives converse--and if it is, it will make it that much funnier. A predictable ending, but a funny, unpredictable way of getting there. A talking wolf, undercover FBI-agent-cousin, vital organs in a plastic bag, and a touch of Dickens-style second-chances--interested yet?

I turned in the last of my assignments yesterday, and applied for my internship today. All that is left to prepare for spring semester is to have my internship approved, add that class, and make my final payment. In the meantime, here are the books on my current to-read pile. Wish me luck--I've got baking to get done, too!
