Booking Through Thursday: Preservatives

Today’s question comes from Conspiracy-Girl: I’m still relatively new to this meme so I’m not sure if this has been asked yet, but I’m curious how many of us write notes in our books. Are you a Footprint Leaver or a Preservationist?

Aside from the scribblings I’ve made as a toddler and the highlighting I did on Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird (which I must admit, I did for a high school freshman English class that scared the heck out of me and have made pretty much every English and literature class I’ve taken since seem like a piece of cake), I don’t like marking up books.

I don’t even like dog-earring pages (sacrilege!) or cracking spines of paperbacks. So yeah, I suppose you could call me a preservationist.

The Thursday Threesome: Classic Christmas Elves!

Onesome: Classic– get togethers? Is that on the list for next week, say about Thursday? …or do you ‘lone wolf’ the Thanksgiving season?

I’m pretty much a lone wolf during Thanksgiving, partially because it’s too much of a hassle to fly back and forth to visit family just for a few days. Also I have a lot of (school) work to do which really wouldn’t make visiting very productive even if I did go. And if I didn’t have other work, I would always have Nanowrimo to work on.

Twosome: Christmas– Ready or not, here it comes! Complete with shopping and decorations and wants and needs and yeah… Are you ready for the experience? …or does a nice South Seas cruise sound like a workable alternative?

Arg. If I have the time and the money, book me on that South Seas cruise.

Threesome: Elves– and other helpers? Do you have any lined up to assist on Thanksgiving Day? …or to decorate in the weeks to come. …or do you even need them?

Uh, I need to decorate?
