Ooh, you have books? I want some!

Sara McClung is doing a sweet book giveaway, and hey, I like books. So I'm helping her up the traffic in a bid to win some of those sweet titles for myself. Even though I just came home from the library with a chin high stack. She has some great new titles in the lineup, including Clockwork Angel and Paranormalcy.
There are never too many books in the house.

On the homefront, we have finally acquired a fishtank, or, to be more honest, we have decided to open a goldfish mortuary in our bathroom. First up on deck is a sharp little black and orange feeder fish that my son proudly named "George Rudebeckia". He's been giving me hourly updates, along the lines of "He's still alive, Mom!"

He has a nice little tank with a filter and everything, so we'll cross our fingers and see how hearty this little guy is. So far, only one marble has "accidentally" fallen into the tank.
Also, George seems to like watching the Simpsons.

"He's still alive" -- it's the 'still' there that makes that so funny!

So far he's a peppy little guy!
We're on Day 3, and George is still swimming strong.

He also seems rather smart for a fish.
