the best thing about finer things club, is how supportive we can be of one another. i only read 8 pages of our chosen book this month.

8. yes.

nuala read the spark notes and christine and kristen read 100 pages (a third of the book). but we still managed to have a lively discussion about goat killings all the same. full disclosure: we’re unanimously against random violence against baby goats. maybe if you eat the kid we’ll forgive, but if you’re just killing it? NO FORGIVENESS, CRUSOE.

kristen’s pictures of the event are awesome and located here. i put up some on Flickr too.

after tea we watched pirates of the caribbean to continue our island adventure theme. we were supposed to watch swiss family robinson (who can not love ostrich racing? are you with me?) but i fell down on the job and didn’t manage to get it in time.

next month will be crazy lady month. we’ll be reading jane eyre or wuthering heights or the yellow wallpaper. i have no idea yet what costume this reading endeavor will spark, but man i am excited. also what foods do crazy ladies eat? i’m not eating rats or anything. what do you think insane people on the moors (scottish thistles?) or locked in turrets (moths?) eat?
