How many times the kitties tried to coerce me into napping: 2 - Spyrrie & Munchie. Spyrrie succeeded for 3 minutes. Trixy little kitten.

So... Fyrefly's Book Blog's Mini Challenge? Yeah, I shook it to Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. (If there was a problem, yo I solved it!) Thanks for that. Wish I had someone home to video me 'cause I totally would have shared that with you guys.

Now as for Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile's challenge, here are five of my favorite children's books:
  1. Green Eggs And Ham by Dr. Seuss.
  2. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.
  3. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

Oh, and as promised... here's a picture of me at the party - faded black lipstick, wide-eyes, and all.
