Quotation of the day

Today's is this from Oscar Wilde: "If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all."

I think about this often when Christmas comes around. When I was in high school I would always use Christmas break to reread Stephen King's "It". I love that book and I haven't read it in a long time. Maybe I'll have to do that again sometime.

But I am an avid re-reader of books. I love experiencing a book again and discovering something new that I had missed the first time around, or being reminded of a favorite moment that impacted my life.

I can't wait to find my next re-readable book. :) Suggestions welcome.

I've been looking for some motivation to run and workout. I think I found that last night. :)

Notes to self again

Don't talk politics or religion with MS. :)

It's been a fun week at work. I put together a flyer for a holiday party our work will be having next month. I have received 3 emails requesting that I call it a Christmas Party instead of a holiday party. "Don't take Christ out of Christmas!" To that I said, "That's what I'm trying not to do by making it generic and calling it a holiday party - it's a bunch of food and drinking...not really honoring Christ with that." Plus we're a civil service kind of place...probably less issues with legal concerns by calling it a holiday party over Christmas.

But it's stirred the pot a bit. And it's stirred some controversy even at home. So note to self: don't talk politics or religion at home. :0
