Smoked oysters?

Not sure why these are on our counter. They fall into the category of food that I would only think to eat if I were scrounging for calories in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Reading percentages

I often get into discussions with people about what I'm reading, or what type of books I tend to read, I usually say that I read about 75% non-fiction. I got to wondering the other day if that was right, and decided to do a back-of-the-envelope calculation based on my lists of books I've been keeping since 2007. Here's how it came out:

2007: 45% non-fiction
2008: 72% non-fiction
2009: 62% non-fiction
2010 (so far): 64% non-fiction

Averaging 60.75% non-fiction. So in the future, I'll round it off and claim 60%.

Sofia Stuff

Little Sofia lost her first tooth the other day. All excited about the tooth fairy, etc. Fun stuff. Here's here new grin:

 

Also, thanks to a co-worker of mine who was cleaning out some stuff, Sofia now has her first dollhouse. She's really into it, but unfortunately she only has one doll that is appropriately sized for it. We'll have to remedy that this weekend...
