Yup. Those people who deign to venture out into the world and leave their little (maybe big) town to see stuff. *gasp*

Where I work, we see our fair share of tourist. School groups (the kind that wish their chaperone's would tag team and keep them in smaller groups), families, people who have people, people who dont have people, and those who dont have anything better to do.

*sigh* I know I have my moments, but if you're traveling some place you have your heart set on seeing, little tip for you.

Do. Some. Research. Before you go.

Books, Books Everywhere!

I enjoy a good book. Especially one that's free to me or that is inexpensive to obtain.

Recently, I stumbled upon Paperback Swap and Book Mooch (the later recommended by a friend). And I'm quite happy about it all. It gives me the chance to get rid of books I dont want/need anymore.

That is all for now.

I Wish I Was In Dixie.....

Long time no post. :) Now I have something to write about!

About a year ago I joined an online book forum for a series called The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. It's quite extensive interms of what it offers for its members - to give you an idea the site (been around for the past 10 years) was recently applying for a 501(c)3 and is now in the process of becoming a 501(c)7, they have two events every year (big, official event in the spring and then a more relaxed one in the fall thats more touristy).

Well, come the begining of March, I'm going to South Carolina for a few days for the sites big spring event! And it's going to be EPIC! It's the 10th Anni (Anni short for Anniversary - not 100% sure why it's called that), there's going to be about 140 people in attendance (maybe more?), and I get to meet the peeps I've been talking to for the past year face to face (only a small, small fraction of the number that are on the site).

I'll be driving down with a couple others going from the area. Great gals. Should be a fun drive.

Now my only problem is trying to get everything to fit into a small suitcase or duffel bag.
