Well, Hello There! (Five Things that Don't Suck, Pre-Internet Edition)

We're having some connectivity issues here at Casa Five Things, so I can't always get online to post. I figure, if this is the worst thing that's happening in my life, I'm doing pretty well. So if you don't hear from me here and there until we get this fixed. But, since I can get online at the moment, here is my list of FTTDS, Pre-Internet Edition:

1. reading books
2. really, really long, involving, glorious books
3. having an attention span
4. cozy blankets
5. putting your feet up

Hope to see you tomorrow. No promises. But if I'm not here? You have my permission to go offline and read a book instead.
