I'm sorry for missing Friday Poetry last week - my family and I were actually at a wedding, so I got home pretty late and didn't get a chance to post a poem. :( The girl who got married is the daughter of one of my parents' friends and I don't know her that well, but she and the groom were so cute together and I did enjoy watching them interact, haha ;) It was kind of fun to get all dressed up, too, since I don't really do that often (except, can I just put a question out there for all those of you who wear makeup on a daily basis: WHAT IS YOUR SECRET. HOW DO YOU DO THIS. TEACH ME YOUR WAYS SO THAT I CAN WEAR MAKEUP FOR ONE NIGHT WITHOUT WANTING TO RUB MY EYES EVERY TEN MINUTES).
So that was a cool experience - the only thing is, there were about 2 million people there because the bride is apparently this big social butterfly, and you guys know I don't do well in huge crowds, so it was... slightly draining as well. (If I ever get married, I'm probably going to invite like three people, total. :P)
On Saturday I went downtown to the library - it's the design-themed one that just opened up, and I don't think I will ever get tired of trawling the shelves. There are so many awesome topics. :D On a slightly similar note, I also began my first web design project in FOREVER. I used to do it all the time, but I kind of dropped it in previous years, so it's so wonderful to get back into the world of coding and everything - I've had to relearn some things and it's taking longer than it normally would, but I can't wait to share the finished product with you guys!
And finally, this happened and I don't know whether to be elated or confused. Probably both.
Update: Frozen Hearts now has two ratings. One is 5 stars. One is 1 star. NEITHER OF THESE PEOPLE HAS READ THE BOOK. (?!?!?!?!?!)

I don't even know what to say at this point. You might remember that I mentioned FH had a one star rating from somebody who'd never read the book last Me Me Me Monday, so... on one hand, at least the balance is evened out a little, but on the other, WHY DO PEOPLE RATE BOOKS THAT HAVEN'T COME OUT YET?! o.o The general consensus on Twitter is that it's probably either a spammer who just wants to mess with me or someone whose intentions are good and wants to make up for the one star.
I'll keep you guys updated on that front, I guess - nothing much more to say on the topic, but it'll be interesting to see if there are yet more ratings before it's published!
And that was my weekend! :D How about you guys - anything exciting happen over the weekend for you? Fun Christmas things? Are you getting ready for the New Year? Talk to me in the comments section! x
