Miscellaneous comments: Boo! I'm already getting really sleepy! :( And I haven't even taken my meds for the night which are meant partially to make me sleepy. Oh well, off to feed the Baconmeister--maybe that will wake me up a bit. If not, there's always coffee to grind. :P

Wish I could share a cup of coffee with you! I just put Elle to bed so I"m back in the game but I kinda just wanna crawl in bed. ;) Cinnamon spice tea sounds delicious!!

Sounds like you're having a lovely bookish day. (And I have to say, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE scones. I just left Heather a comment that I really need to read for the readathon one of these days just so I can have an excuse for yummy snacks and food.)

Read on!

YUCK!!! I can finally disagree with you on something you're eating! I hate eggs, lol. Oh I wish I was over there with you SO BAD DEBI!!!!!! I'd help keep you awake by making coffee for us and playing music really loud and making you dance :p In fact, go tell Annie to find some good music and make you dance a little bit ;) Or go pick some of the more bizarre songs that I've sent you with the email music project and listen to those :p Hope you can hang in there my dear! But take a nap if you need to! It helped me. And yay for Francesca Lia Block!! I just got an email from Amazon saying that her new book The Elementals shipped to me :D So excited!!!!

I remember my teacher reading selections of The Hot Zone in my biology class every year and it was just terrifying! I agree with Chris -- go dance around! Do something to wake up! I'm not staying up super late, though. Just until maybe 12 or 1. I know I'm going to get too sleepy... and what can I say? I like my sleep!
