The land of missing things...

I spent all of today cleaning the apartment... it's still not spotless (we have too much stuff crammed into a tiny space!) but it looks much, much better. I threw out a lot of useless paperwork and stuff I don't need, organized my clothes (I can't afford to do the 8 loads of laundry it would take to clean everything, so I had to separate things I wear regularly and things I don't) and put together a box for our next yard sale.

Jay vacuumed and made me lunch, and all in all it was a very low-key but nice day.

What totally baffles me though, is how some things can just completely disappear. I cleaned everything from top to bottom, and somehow have yet to find a) my big brown wallet and b) my roll-on Juicy Couture perfume.

Neither of these mean that my world is over, but it would be nice to have them back. I haven't seen the brown wallet in about a month, and the wallet has been missing for maybe 6 months. I KNOW they're around here somewhere, but they're completely eluding me.

Driving me nuts!

Also, remember how upset I was about not having read enough books last year? Well, this year started out slow due to school, but so far during the summer I've read...

-The Devil Wears Prada (about the same as the movie)
-White Oleander (WAY better then the movie!)
-Animal Farm (re-read)
-Slaughterhouse Five (re-read)

I'd like to get in another book or two before school starts on the 28th, but I'm not sure what to read next. I'd like to try (and subsequently become addicted to-- like everyone else) the Twilight series, but I can't afford to buy a copy right now, and I'd have to wait for months & months for it to be available at the library.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I got hooked on Twilight after the movie came out and of course, the movies will never be as awesome as the books.

At the house where I grew up, random things were constantly disappearing and reppearing and my mom says there is something supernatural that causes that (like a leprechaun or somethin) and that made looking for stuff thrilling.
