I cried myself to sleep last night after finishing "Capote". My God, what a tragic loss. I mean, I knew that he died a sad death and all, but I was in no way prepared for how sad it would make me. I was fascinated by every detail of this man's life and will now read everything he's written. I just can't help but wonder what more he would have given the world if he would have stuck around a little longer.

Stewey senses my sadness and is glued to my hip today. He insists on being in my lap as I work online, so not much is getting done today.
We did, however, manage to get to the bank and then to Starbucks for a much needed treat:
Peppermint Mocha Twist Latte a la Spinster. (That's with a double shot of espresso and only one pump of syrup...usually they use five pumps and methinks that's just too much. I need the hit of the coffee, after all..not an impending sugar rush.)

We're waiting for a snow/ice storm, so I suppose I had better go batten down the hatches.

Stay tuned for the PS finish. I'm not going to bed until that sucker's done!


  1. My favorite seasonal Starbucks treat is the salted caramel hot chocolate. OMG just saying makes my mouth water!

  2. Did you ever see the movie The Grass Harp? It was written by him about his childhood. Excellent movie. Walter Mathau, Sissy Spacek, wonderful movie. I am a Capote fan also.
