Looking through my bookmarks I found a link: 100 best first lines from novels
I was pleased to see that the first on the list was the line from my favourite novel - Moby Dick by Hermann Melville: "Call me Ishmael". And "Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself" from Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf is also on the list.
Don't know why but this fact makes me smile.

Back to work in the morning (yeah, that's why I'm here at almost 4 a.m. *gg*) after two weeks at home due to sick leave. I'm so glad to be back around people!

I've also begun to make a list of people to whom I need to buy Christmas/New Year presents. The first thing you can learn from my list is the fact that I have a big family and a lot of friends. It's a good thing usually, but I'm so bad at coming with ideas for presents... so I'm terrified *gg*

I'm 5' 7'' (170 cm) and at school I was of average height. And I was used to thinking about my height as of an average one. Both my best female friends from school have an inch or two over me. But then I entered University and almost everybody - both professors and fellow students - were shorter then me. They were speaking about me as a tall girl. I never assumed myself tall. The only time I was called tall before was by my coach when he saw me several years after I stopped being a professional gymnast. But for gymnastics everything above 5' - 5' 1'' is tall! Then all my friends whom I met after school turned out to be also shorter then me. And now I'm thinking - am I tall? And if I am than what, our school is just a bunch of tall people gathered at one place to study?

It is more easy to keep to a diet when it is a season for watermelons :)

I'm a bit ashemed of it, but I've started to read Twilight. Almost the whole world is crazy about this book - I got curious. In fact I was just looking for something to read in the foreign literature section in the bookstore. And I saw Twilight and thought, damn, I was teached to read books, I definetely could cope with this one.
As I've predicted, nothing special. So far the most interesting and exciting thing about the book is the fact that the plot is situated somewhere in Washigton, my favourite state.

My cats follow my every step when I'm at home and I'm sure, if I went to work today, they'd follow me to the train station.
