What really matters is what you like, not what you are like.

Goodreads has a nifty little feature where you can compare the collection of books you've rated to your friends' collections. It's mostly useless but sort of fun. Here are the comparisons of my books to books some of my grad school buddies have rated:

And here, kittens, is photographic evidence of why Abby_wan_kenobi and I are BFFs.

Best Venn diagram ever.

Letters Never Sent

I use my gmail drafts folder to keep track of links I want to check out later. Today I decided that it was high time that I cleaned out that folder, since it had somehow gotten up to 85 drafts. Among various links to articles that I'm probably never going to read, I also have an amusing amount of emails that I started to write to Abby but then never finished or sent. Check out the highlights below.

I'm a big fan of the emails where I wrote a subject line, but then got distracted and never wrote the rest of that email.

"Workin on my Night Cheese"
"Twinkies are Bankrupt!"

You're curious about that Twinkie thing, I can tell. I got a little further into this email, but not enough to complete a thought:

Subject: Delicious Irony
Message: K__ just invited me to a Tastefully Simple party to raise

The suspense! Sometimes I think I started writing emails but then realized she was on chat but never got rid of the draft. Either that or I realized I was writing the world's most boring email and just gave up.

Subject: I accidentally got to work super early this morning
Message: I woke up about 45 minutes early today because I was having sinus issues and I had to pee.

[no subject]
Message: I got in a fight with my sister yesterday about breastfeeding.

I still haven't cleaned out my drafts.
