Rug-colored dog on a dog-colored rug


Now that I'm back home, it's time to tally up the statistics from when I was at home:

    Number of rug-colored dogs communed with during trip: 1. Please note, the rug-colored dog has given me permission to post her photo on the internet.

    Number of close family members communed with during trip: 6. So all the main ones.

    Number of books (bought, given or foraged) brought back home from home: 17. About half academic and half not-so-academic.

    Number of books left at home due to lack of space in luggage: 13. The Complete Wreck to be exact.

    Number of sneezes, coughs and nose-blowing incidents: too many to count. Was it the local dust mites? Rug-colored dog dander? Am I allergic to California?

    Number of boyfriends Skyped while on trip: 1. Total number of people Skyped while on trip: 2.

    Number of bloggers met over lunch: 1. And it was very cool. Please note, I'm not counting my brother on this list, although we did go to lunch (more than once), and he is a blogger.

    Number of A Series of Unfortunate Events books read during trip: 6. I had read the first 7 books before.

    Number of kilos (yes, kilos) gained during trip: almost 5...so about half a kilo per It's-It.

    Amount of work done during trip: not as much as I had wanted. But almost enough.

    Number of belated Christmas/Chanukah/Yule/Winter Solstice wishes to all: infinite.

My daughter was reading that series for a while, but she grew bored.

Happy New Year!!

Ms. Mood, thanks, it's good to be back. And Happy New Year to you, too!

Sophie, yep, she's the epitome of precious. I think she's smaller than your dog though, if I recall correctly.

Ms. Black Scorpio, that was a great link...see you soon!

Erin, same to you! :-)

Vesper, thanks, same to you...and nice new profile pic!

Day, I read the first 7 because I was bored and my friend (whom I was staying with) had them...there's a lull after the first 3 or 4, and then...well, I was totally hooked, and it was tough waiting until I was in California where I knew I would have the rest to read.

And Happy New Year to you, too! :-)

It was really cool, wasn't it? Next time, a less rushed thing, I think.

Definitely a less rushed thing next time...perhaps you can show me around Berzerkeley?
