Pottermore nightmare

Getting ready to start grad school today; started a new job Aug 1 where my one fulltime employee broke his leg a week ago, so I've been having to figure out my job and his and do them both. Is it any wonder that last night I had a nightmare where Pottermore was a real theme park, where I got on a wild ride that was part roller coaster, part spin you upside down craziness, and the restraint didn't work. So I was hanging on for dear life, screaming for help, and no one would stop the ride.

Hard to interpret, right?

Top 10s of the decade: Books

Yes, yes, I know the decade isn't really over, but all these lists coming out have sparked an interest in compiling my own lists :)

First, I can't believe it has been nearly 10 years since people were freaking out about Y2K, 9/11 hadn't happened yet, and I was still in college, not yet having realized that I had already met the man I was going to marry.

And so much has happened in those 10 years -- I've graduated college, moved four times, traveled to Europe twice, gotten married, held two full-time jobs, rescued two cats and have overall settled securely into my life. It's amazing when I think about it.

So here are my top 10 lists -- I'm sure I will forget about something obvious, leave something off, etc. -- off the top of my head (from 2000-2009), of the things that have shaped the first 10 years of my adult life, in a series of posts.
