You know what? God bless our weirdo mishmash of a country (assuming you live in America -- if not, bless your weirdo country too). What is today? Mardi Gras. Ok, that's French, gotcha. And we speak English, but we're ok with that. How do we celebrate it? By eating paczkis. Which are...Polish? Right. Fine then.
Oh. This article has now made me think this is perhaps because I live in Chicago, Land of Polish People (outside Poland). In any case, I am currently eating one of these:

In sadder news, due to traveling plans that were finalized yesterday, I am NOT going to BEA. Now before you launch a massive protest, know that I am instead going to Canada, and therefore am being punished enough.
No, for reals, my friend is flying me out to Toronto for my birthday because she lives there, and we shall...do Canadian things, I don't know what yet because I am an American and know nothing about Canada. And I only have SO many vacation days, so something had to be sacrificed, and that something was BEA. But come to Chicago, book bloggers! Come and we will eat things!
Otherly, I had completely forgotten I had Attachments by Rainbow Rowell checked out from the library until I saw it was due back today and I am unable to renew it because someone else requested it. Sorry, sir or ma'am, but you're not getting this until I've finished it. I'll somehow handle the 20 cents a day. Also this book is really good and should be read.
