Updating like there's no tomorrow!

I'm updating. I'm updating. If only you could hear me singing that to myself. I'm supposed to be working on something right now, but I'm not and I'm thinking of ditching all responsibility today and just driving out to the beach. Well, all responsibility until I go to work at 4. Hey, I need to eat too. Speaking of which, I probably eat too much.
Anyway, I've been reading a lot lately (one reason I've not been online in forever). Ok, I'm the first to admit I'm not a huge fan of poetry, but I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed Edna St. Vincent Millay's poetry. I picked it up on a whim at work the other day, and I've not regretted it since. I also grabbed a book of Emerson's essays. I get in these moods sometimes and his writing just seems to fit right in with my mood. I also bought Chopin's Awakening and reread it the other day. Apparently I'm on this classic lit kick and there is no end in sight. I do that with books (and so many other things). I was reading every sci-fi/fantasy book I could lay my hands on last month, and before that it was shojo manga. ::grin::
Before that, who knows? My books-to-read list is unending. Seriously, working in a bookstore only shows you how many books you'd really like to read. The thing is, there are a ton of other books I'd like to read that we don't even keep in stock. I could spend my whole paycheck at work if I had no bills to pay.
Also, I just picked up Howl's Moving Castle at FYE the other day. I LOVE IT! It was great. If you haven't seen it, you need to. I'll let you borrow my copy (as long as I can reasonably get it to you - random internet people who live in places like Wisconsin will not be considered as eligible borrowers - think of the shipping!).
Also, if you're looking for good music, here's my latest finds...
Emery, Terminal, Discover America, Underoath, Mae, and Classic Crime. Check 'em out!
