Quickie

Just really quickly, because it's month-end this week at work.

- Tonight is St. Jude's night at Chili's. They're donating 100% of their profits tonight to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. So - if you were thinking of going out to dinner tonight I strongly encourage going to Chili's. For more information on St. Jude's, I have a banner on my sidebar. Check them out, they do wonderful things for children who have devastating illnesses.

- Does anyone know anyone who needs a job? There's one opening up in my area at work. Email me directly if you know someone who's interested.

- I hate it when people litter.

- I love good weekends.

- Is anyone else having a problem with Good Reads today where if you pick a book to add to your shelves, it defaults it to your "read" shelf and you can't get it out? I tried to add 2 books to a "need to buy" shelf I created and it kept defaulting them over to the "read" shelf as well. I haven't read them yet! Good Reads is trying to make a liar out of me. ;)

I have been known to yell "Litter Bug Alert" out the car window on occasion...

Nice.

That is a "feature" of GoodReads designed to keep the design "simple and elegant." Every book you add will always show up on one of the three default shelves, and there's no way to opt out. If you go to the Feedback discussion group, you can suggest a better design. I've already started participating in a conversation there, so join me in being crabby! :)

Shannon thanks for the 'splanation. I'll have to make sure I put it on my "To-Read" shelf then rather than just my "Need-to-buy" shelf so that I can keep it straight and honest. :)

All Chili's? Like, everywhere? Even in my state?

Cause that would be a great excuse to get a book and have a burger and a beer!

And dessert...if it's for charity and all...

Danielle A. said...

Yes, Mags. Even in your state and even everywhere.

Go to http://www.createapepper.com/ and on the bottom left there's a little book thing. Click on the green tab and that's the one for the all profits night. :)

Too bad there's no chili's around here...I think the closest one is about 45 min. away.

Way cool. I am so there.
