As I've done the "Read 50 Books in a Year" goal already (and reached it more than once), I want to do something a little different.

This year I'd like to read the alphabet.

I attempted to do this last year, but then around March I completely forgot that I had the goal and didn't remember again until around mid-October. Therefore, I have decided to try again this year.

I have decided that I am allowed to be a little lenient with "X", "Z", "U" and "Q"  as long as I don't count any novel twice. If I read something the book "The Ex-Games", I may count it towards X or E but not both. I'd say I hope that makes sense, but they're my rules for me so I don't suppose they have to make much sense to anyone else.

I will keep the list updated (I hope) as the year and hopefully my reading progresses. I am not likely to pick the books out much in advance, but suggestions are welcome, especially for tougher letters like x, z, q, u.

I'm not requiring myself to read new books. As long as I do read the book, it's fine if I've already read it. I say this probably because there's a series I'm considering revisiting.

I am in serious need of a hair cute. Not all hair cuts are hair cutes, this is a special kind of hair cut that is made of win.

Step 7. Put decorations on tree. 8. Yell for the dog to "drop it!" until dog relinquishes the ornament in her mouth. 9. Barricade the dog from the room with the tree in it.

You might have seen my recent obsession update a couple of weeks ago; on that front I don't have much to add, except maybe to add that I am watching the first seasons of In Plain Sight and Leverage ergo Marshall Mann and Eliot Spencer have gained a place on my list as well. But I am still much the same, and by that I mean absolutely riveted with the BBC Sherlock.
 
There is one final episode of the first series I have yet to watch that will air on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery Theater tonight. Could I have watched it already on the internet? Yes. Have I? Will I? No, for two reasons. the first is out of practicality: my laptop screen is dying. For general internet and word processing, the screen isn't terrible, but pictures are sketchy, and videos look horrendous. It's especially difficult to discern what's happening if filming leans toward the low, almost nonexistent lighting and muted colors Sherlock tends to favor. The second reason: I think waiting is fun. Some people are dying to know what they're getting for Christmahanukwanzaakah and will do all sorts of snooping to find out early what it is they're getting. I am not one of those people. I prefer to wait, to look at the presents all wrapped up pretty with a bow on top, and wonder. Growing up, there was some "playing pretend" about Santa, but my sister and I never believed in him. The enchantment of Christmas came (at least for me, my sister is the snooping kind) from shiny decorations, twinkle lights, eating way more candy than was normally allowed, hoping people would love what I bought them, and (perhaps most significantly) "the wait. I love every minute of the wait, its magic. Stuff is just stuff, even if it's new and someone else bought it for me, but the wait, the wonder, the guessing make "just stuff" into excitement and anticipation. So, I wait all week every week without peeking at the videos online for the next episode to air, and every week I have a "mini-Christmas", a private celebration to cheer me before another anonymous week of "how can I help?" starts.
