Boss of You: Everything a Woman Needs to Know to Start, Run, and Maintain Her Own Busness
I have a proof of this book (so exciting!), but it will be available to order April 28th and you can pre-order at Amazon. This is written by Emira Mears and Lauren Bacon, the two women behind Raised Eyebrow Web Studio, and whose old site, Soapbox Girls, I used to read while working at my first job where I had a computer ane internet access, this is before I had my own computer and internet access at home. Also check out their site Boss Lady.

coffee made in a Clover
The Clover is a hi-tech coffee maker that allows the barista to adjust grind size, dose, water temperature and contact time for each cup of coffee. This means good coffee. You can find a coffee shop that has a Clover. Happily, there are a bunch here in Seattle, I had coffee made it on at Trabant Coffee in the U-District last weekend.

tissue paper flowers
I bought a kit from Martha Stewart Crafts because I still regret not buying the Crepe Paper Flowers kits from years ago. Also to see: crepe paper rose bouquet and double-sided crepe paper in spring flower colors, autumn flower colors, and red rose colors.

Great little movie, with characters you want to hang out with and story with a happy ending. Hooray.

World War Z
This audiobook contains “unabridged selections” so it’s not the full book, but the readers, including Alan Alda, Carl Reiner, and Mark Hamill, are stellar. This is the story of the zombie war as told by the survivors and it’s surprisingly rich and engaging, while still being creepy. I’m also going to read the book as I find myself eager to read the parts that didn’t make it into the audiobook.

    Loved Juno. Loved it!

    I’ve been making the rounds of Clover-equipped coffee shops here in SoCal, and have so far been underwhelmed, mostly because of the shops’ refusal to use dark roast beans. I can’t stand wimpy, medium-roast beans – perhaps due to the fact that I was raised on Starbucks :)

    I got the rose kit too. They are so fun and actually come out quite well.

    So glad you posted about the paper flowers. I am making some for my upcoming birthday party this weekend & have never done it before. I am using tissue paper and craft wire.

    There’s a Clover at my office in a building far away. I’ve been known to make a special trip or two (a coworker even drives in on Sunday mornings!).

    Oh man is WWZ one of my favorite books! The full version is WELL WORTH IT.

    I read World War Z. Loved it. I love zombie stuff. I am so jealous about the audio book. I didn’t know that one existed. I’ll have to buy it.

    I would love to see if there is a Clover around me, but the company is hateful about my work-mandated browser. They are proud of not being Internet Explorer compliant. :(

    World War Z…GREAT BOOK! Read it, read it, read it!

    Just FYI: The Martha Stewart Craft Kit for the red roses was on sale this weekend at Michael’s — 50% off the original price of $19.99. Still pricey.
