Miscellaneous comments:
*I was hanging in there, not totally chipper, but not bad either, until about 15 minutes ago. Now I'm struggling something fierce to keep the eyes open.
*Annie's been napping for a couple hours. She wanted me to wake her up, but I'm afraid she notice I took a couple of her Oreos. :)

How's The Hunger Games going? It's keeping my eyes open so far. I hope to finish it before the night's out.
