Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

She's Baaaack!

I'm back! And I've got a couple of things to relate about our vacation trip but that will have to wait until tomorrow. Today, I want to remind everyone about two important days coming up next week.

Day to ReadFirst of all, next Thursday, January 10, is the Day to Read. That's the day we are asking that everyone not post a blog and simply use that time to read. More info can be found here.

Wear OrangeThe next day, Friday, January 11, is Wear Orange Day. Six years ago on that date, the first prisoners arrived at Guantánamo Bay and the ACLU is asking that everyone wear something "prison jumpsuit" orange to symbolize their sadness and disgust with the national shame that it has become. More info on that is here.

(OK, so it's not quite a rant, but it's at least a couple of things I have strong feelings about.)

    But I read all the time anyway. Yes, including porn.

    I need to be excused along with Howard as I read ALL the time. Currently reading Literacy and Longing in LA.

    Thanks for posting this. I hadn't known about the 11th. And welcome back! I hope the vacation was a good one. Also, check out Los Angelista's Guide to the Pursuit of Happiness - if you don't have her link (and I'm too moronic to have it available here) just click on the links through my blog. It's a call to action on the situation in Kenya.

    I don't know if I can read for a whole day. That's kind of a long time, and there's the laundry, and the diaper pail, the cat box.... And I can promise to be wearing orange. There's sweet potatoes,or squash, or carrot puree... something, I'm sure.
