okay, the tweet pic in the Target hubub article made me giggle. i mean, the kids are going to be paying attention to the brightly colored toothbrushes & not paying any attention at all to the dark boxes to the right, but it IS an amusing placement. kinda like condoms in the diaper aisle…

And I’m so jealous of your wine gift! But thanks for the link so I can order two sets, one set to drink and one set to keep…you really think I could have that around me and not crack it open? *snort* Right. ;)

Thanks Maryse for making it so easy to get my Fifty video clip fix this morning! My friends and I have tickets for the first showing in our area, this Thursday so of course I super crammed re-reading all three this past week. As many times as I’ve read them I still found things I had forgotten So I’m glad I revisited Ana and Christian :)
