Friday Fragments - It's Been a While

Friday Fragments is brought to you by Mrs4444!

Mommy's Idea

You know you have issues when you have too many fragments swirling around in your brain to actually find the time to create a Friday Fragments post. Sometimes I feel like there's a Tetris game going on inside my head.

I've been doing a lot more reading since I got my Nook. I think it's because I'm generally too cheap to buy new books, and I haven't had time to get to the library or the used book store. I can borrow digital books from our library, so I can browse the catalog and pick out a book while I'm eating lunch. The downside is that the only time I have to read is late at night, so I've been staying up late. I was up past 1:00 finishing Water for Elephants. I love staying up and reading a good book, but the alarm clock goes off awfully early.

What books have you been loving?

I'm reverting back to old habits thanks to The Mothership. I've had coffee every day this week. Right now I'm enjoying a Mocha Latte. It's Friday, I wanted something fancy.

Yay Friday! We're going to a couples' Euchre night tomorrow, and I'm bringing dessert, because it's my favorite thing to make and eat. I think I'm going to make these Strawberry Truffles that my friend Beantown Baker posted about on Wednesday. They look amazing.

Do you follow proper Elevator Etiquette? In the global community sociology class that I teach, Elevator Etiquette is one of my favorite examples of the unwritten social rules that we all learn and follow.

The Consumerist posted a helpful video about the subject. Check it out!

I'm getting VERY impatient waiting for the new (and last - sniff, sniff!) Harry Potter movie. July 17th can't come fast enough.

Hope you have a great 3-day weekend!


  1. I can't wait for HP7 either. We're going at midnight again. I really hope they do it justice.

  2. It's been a while since I've been in an elevator, but I used to work in Sears Tower, so it's ingrained!  However, I never stand all the way to the back when there are only two of us...I stand closer to the buttons, especially if the other passenger is a man. Would I fail?

  3. nice graphical post this Friday.
    Why is "heaven" on the bottom instead of the top?
    Your elevator diagram does not indicate where the big guy with gas should stand.  OUTSIDE the shaft maybe?
     I didn't know you taught a class - night school?  I'm impressed.

  4. The last very good book I read was "Night Road" by Kristin Hannah.  I'm enjoying "Three Little Words" now.

    Didn't know about elevator etiquette but glad to see I do follow it.

    Stopping by from FF.

  5. I have three books on the go right now, and ohhhhhhh, I so empathise with those too early mornings!  On the weeks when hubby works away, I have no one to nag me to switch off the light, and I need shaking out of the duvet at 6am to roust my cherubs ready for the school run.. ugh.
