Sometimes I forget that I don't actually know Augusten Burroughs. After reading his books, it's hard not to feel a kinship to him. He freely offers the intimate details and dirty secrets of his adventures as if he's talking to his closest friend. Honestly, what stranger would tell you about the time he got black-out drunk and accidentally slept with a 65-year-old Santa?

I certainly enjoyed his latest collection of stories, although I wish it was longer. My number 11 went by a little too quickly.

Only one more to go...

After a long day of feeling sick and grouchy, all I wanted to do was snuggle under the covers with my last Augusten Burroughs book and drink peppermint tea.

And so I finished the second half of Sellevision in just a couple hours. I was excited to make some more progress on my list, but also disappointed to have already gone through all of his books. That is, until I realized he just published another book last month. Thrilled to have one more great read to look forward to.

Worth every penny

I love, love, love my new headphones. Definitely one impulsive decision I don't regret.

Halfway there

The hard part is finally over. Now it's time to focus on getting better so you can play with Benny Boo Bopple.
