My department at work is throwing the March birthday party for my building, and we've decided to do a Dr. Seuss theme! Should be fun. Starting a little "research" for creative snack inspiration, because I found Pinterest to be a little overwhelming. What Seuss-themed treat would you like to eat?

myellenbee Clearly green eggs and ham. Make green deviled egg filling by adding avocado. 2w
Grrlbrarian I‘ve seen truffula tree cake pops and they looked delish 😋 2w
readinginthedark @myellenbee I was planning something like that, but my coworkers said they'd be grossed out and couldn't eat it. 🤷‍♀️ I'm thinking maybe green matcha cookies with lemon curd to look like the green eggs? 1w
readinginthedark @Grrlbrarian Fun! I've never made cake pops before, might be a good time to try! 1w

#FancifulFebruary @4thhouseontheleft Knocked out red on cover and heart on cover with this one. Very informative, but not entertaining enough for children. Needs to be updated in a new edition, I think. I can mark it off of 1974.

This seems like a fitting book for my language practice today. It will be quite a challenge for me, and I'm a bit worried that I found a few typos in the English since I probably won't be able to recognize errors in the Korean yet and might learn mistakes. But language work and tea and a treat (earl grey doughnut mmm) is still this nerd's idea of a great afternoon 😁

Happy lunar new year 🎉

tournevis @ljuliel Thank you! 😘😘😘😘😘 I'm doing ok, but so completely swamped, more than last semester, I don't have any free time. I get up, I work, I cook and clean, I go to bed. I don't see anything letting up for weeks either. Health-wise, I'm ok. 4w
ljuliel Sorry you‘re so busy but I‘m glad you‘re feeling well. 4w
tournevis @ljuliel Thank you and thank you for thinking of me. I miss reading about your lives and your readings. I really do miss you all. 4w

I'm in the mood for a holiday-centric reading challenge in February, so I put together a little BINGO sheet! 💖A book can count for more than one prompt!

If you would like to participate in a Feb theme read (so many holidays to choose from: Valentine's Day, Black History Month, & President's Day in the US), I would love for you to join in! Just use #FancifulFebruary and tag me in your posts.

Psst...one of these is also a #booked2020 prompt! 😉

wanderinglynn How fun! Thanks for organizing. This will be a great way for me to organize my February TBR. 😀❤️ 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @wanderinglynn Yay! Glad you‘re joining in! 1mo

4thhouseontheleft @Marni You can count a book for more than one prompt, which makes it easier! (edited) 1mo

Gissy What is POC or MC? 1mo
wanderinglynn @Gissy POC = person of color. MC = main character. 3w
wanderinglynn @4thhouseontheleft what is the dinner date square? Where they characters have dinner? Or I‘m reading during dinner? Or??? 3w
4thhouseontheleft @wanderinglynn Either one, however you want to interpret it! The book I‘m reading, the characters have a dinner date, so i am using that for the prompt. 3w
4thhouseontheleft @Gissy I‘m sorry I missed your question! What @wanderinglynn said 😊 3w
wanderinglynn @4thhouseontheleft awesome! Thanks! 😀 3w

I pulled these two golden oldies out today to read to my nieces and they loved them! Who doesn‘t want to meet Mrs. God, Shaniqua the angel, and Bruce God‘s secretary. This is a fun and beautifully illustrated set of books that allow children let their imaginations run free about what it means to create a world!
