The visit with Mr. R’s parents went great. It is always nice to see family. There was some nagging; I was happy.

The Aggies beat Texas Tech in OT, so I had at least one reason to smile this weekend. We moved up one spot to 21 in the BCS poll. Now if we can just beat Texas in two weeks, I’ll be a happy girl.

I am fighting a sinus infection. I can never decide what is the worst thing about having a sinus infection: the pressure in my forehead and cheekbones? The headache that comes from the pressure? The floatiness that comes from the two above? The irritated stomach from the copious amounts of snot? It all sucks. Oh, and about a week from now I will have a cold sore on my nose from blowing it so often. Crap.

On a somewhat lighter note, due to Netflix I have no life. You heard me, Netflix. I am a firm believer in the genius of Joss Whedon, but I have never seen Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the beginning. I got Netflix for the sole purpose of watching them all. It is sad, I know. There is the added reason that there is almost nothing good left on TV thanks to reality shows and idiot executives, must I say it…. Angel and Firefly? But I digress. I come home at night and end up watching about one disc, 4 episodes, a night. I have almost stopped reading! I have stopped meaningless surfing on the net! I just get sucked in. I am now on season 4, so in a couple more weeks, this craziness will be over.

Moving on to Books
I finished Emma last week and I am now going to start The Book Shop, by Penelope Fitzgerald. I have repeatedly seen her name on lists of “books you should read ‘cuz they are good”. I will let you know what I think. Of course, Emma was great. It was Austen.
