Loot!

Today, as it happens, is my birthday, and jonbaker gave me presents. Five of 'em.

1. The Omnious Omnibus, which is the first three books of the Lemony Snicket Series (I got that one last week, because I happened to be there when he opened the package. Unfortunate.)

2. Eragon by Christopher Paolini. I've never heard of this YA fantasy, but he saw I was reading Scott Westerfield (btw - the "Uglies" series? Must read.)

3. Mark Goodman's World of Jewish Cooking, which has recipes I actualy might try, so very, very cool, and which I got at midnight last night.

4. The one item I'd requested, a nostepinne. This is a turned wooden rod used for winding balls of yarn. I've *been* using my thumb and pens and rolled up newspaper wound with clear packing tape, all of which worked, but this feels NICE in my hand. I have a thing for fine woods.

5. And the surprise, which came in the same box as the nostepinne. A top-weighted drop spindle and roving (unspun wool.)

:)

And I got a birthday present from my mother - she's engaged! I'm still dancing about that one.

Happy birthday, and many more, each better than the previous!

Mazal tov on your birthday and your mom's engagement.

I have and have read Eragon and will soon get Eldest. I'm going to have my girls read it and then we'll go see the movie when it comes out.

Happy Birthday!!

I'd love to hear your opinions on Eragon when you finish reading it. My feelings on the book were mixed, though I think he gets much better in the second.

Congratulations to your mother, as well.

Happy birthdy! :)

Happy birthday! Let me know what you think of Eragon. My son's a big fan of that series, and we've been listening to Eragon on CD in the car lately. The movie comes out next month. I'd love to have someone to discuss it with. :-)

Happiest of birthdays, my dear! Here's to many more, each better than the last. *smooch*
