Things I learned on Twitter: Y'all are REALLY into the idea of #boutofbooks merchandise. Like, REALLY into it. I honestly can't think of even starting something like that until after Bout of Books is over and Amanda and I can do some research. In the meantime, CHAAAAAATTTTTTTT! Chat 'til your fingers fall off and you feel light-headed. GOOD TIMES, MAN. Good times.

Things I learned on Twitter: I fixed my website! Well, Amanda helped. And the tech guy who worked on the support ticket I submitted. But whatever. I FIXED MY WEBSITE! Other than that, I wasn't online all that much today. Because, you know, I had to work. BOO.

Today #insixwords: Today was my super lazy day.
Things I learned on Twitter: Today was my do-nothing day. I mean, I wrote some reviews and watched a few movies (as an aside, I like the City of Bones movie, but EVERYONE in that movie is weird looking. What's that about?) and was basically a lazy slug. AS ONE CAN BE.
Final Tally: One adventurous couple.

Final Thoughts: As always, I had a great time reading and chatting and being a general pain in the ass. Hope to see everybody for Bout of Books FIFTEEN coming in January!
