Love is in the air...

I never thought in a million years that it would happen to me. Honestly, I just didn't think I was that kind of girl.

Yet suddenly birds are singing, the sun is shining... the world is a happier place in general. I've turned into one of those people who drive everyone crazy with their need to endlessly gush about the new love in their life. And as irritating as it is, it's out of my control. I am powerless in the wake of these overwhelming emotions.

I find myself thinking about the object of my affection when we're apart and counting the minutes until we can be together again. I never knew that I could love anything this much. In fact, just talking about it makes me a little teary.

I can't imagine how I ever lived without...

my Nook.

(That's right, folks-- don't underestimate the bond between a girl and her e-reader.)

You are such a tease - but you're a hilarious once and are thus excused.

I am clinging to paper with all my might, accepting as I do my very unfashionable lack of Greenness/Eco-consciousness or whatever you want to call it. I will not be an easy convert.

Ooooo! Those sound so fun. Imagine the possibilities. Some day...

All I got out of that was "blah, blah, blah" because my mind was so full of the phrase "Aubrey blogged" on infinite repeat. I'm sorta shell-shocked right now.
Welcome back, mi amiga.

I was a little panicked reading this... I thought you were cheating on me and Ben and Jerry, but then that would explain why I haven't heard from you in so long. Good to know you're just too busy reading to keep in touch! We really should get together though... I miss you!

Kim, I TOTALLY know what you mean. I was the last person you would expect to go digital because I am so into the whole physical, paper book experience. Well, that and the fact that technology hates me. But it's almost impossible to read a book on the treadmill, and that was my reasoning for this rather exorbitant purchase. I thought I would only use it for the treadmill, yet I find myself loving it despite my initial reservations.

FYI Kristi, they've just lowered the prices on e-readers significantly. So someday might be closer than you think!

Sarah, you'd think I could come up with something more interesting after my extended blogging vacation, but as it turns out, there is very little of the fascinating to be found in this neck of the woods.

And Julianne, if I really were in love with something warm-blooded with a pulse, you'd be the first to know. But we really should go to dinner anyway...even if I don't have anything new and exciting to report.

Oh my gosh! An e-reader would work on the treadmill! You are a genius. THANK YOU. Now I need to find some dinero...

I love my NOOK! I received it as a birthday present this year and found it wonderful to take with me everywhere... then, it died. Apparently I murdered the pixels...so, I am going to get a new one... and until then, paper it is!

Dear Aubrey. Where have you gone? My world is so bleak without you in it. Perhaps you could drop a note on this neglected blog of yours--something along the lines of, "I am still alive" so all your friends out here in the blogosphere will feel less neglected.
The end.

He's quite a bit thinner than I expected, but I never get between a woman and her new love, even if he is a total techie nerd.
