SM Johnson ~ Not Afraid to go There ~

Good morning, Darlings, and welcome to Thursday! (Tomorrow's Friday, yaaaaaay!)

I am simplifying my blog titles (pauses for golf claps and, alternatively, choruses of Um, okay, so what?). I know, I know. Ya'll are aware that this is Thursday Morning Coffee, so I'll skip that bit, as far as titles go. Perfect. I'll keep my name in there, just so you know who I am in your Twitter Stream. I'm already lost in the phone book, hate to get lost in Twitter-ville, too.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Who do you trust?

Good morning, darlings, and welcome to a very brief coffee break. Today I'm asking a question, for both readers and writers.

And the question is...

Who do you trust?

Readers - who do you trust to recommend books that you will love? Reviewers? Bloggers?  Book blogs? Goodreads? The NYT best seller list? The fact that a book jacket or description tells you it is a best-seller?

I'd love it if you'd drop names (links) in the comments about the people who've proven trustworthy for book recs, for you.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Group Dynamics

Good morning, Darlings, and welcome to coffee! I have a confession to make: Last week Thursday came and went and I didn't even notice, and hence, there was no coffee. I do apologize. It's summer. Life gets crazy, you know?

We humans are social creatures who adore validation, and as such, we tend to seek others of like minds. Some people find churches and community groups to feed this need, or regular gatherings of "girlfriends" groups, girls night out, boys night out, story time at the library. There are Real Life quilting groups, scrapbooking groups, bookclubs, singles meets, etc and etc and on to infinity.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ My People

Good morning darlings, and welcome to Time Moving Consistently. (Slaps hand to forehead). Wait, that's Earth. Umm.... how about we have Thursday Morning Coffee today? Yeah, sounds good to me, too.

Have I mentioned here how much fun Type 2 Diabetes is? I only bring it up because recently it's come to my attention that my blood glucose is running high, which is annoying, and exhausting, and frustrating... and pretty much makes eating not very fun at all (because I am being a control freak trying to avoid medication, and IT'S NOT WORKING). And why is this relavent? Well, let me tell you... the one thing I have so far refused to give up since my diagnosis in 2009 has been real sugar in my coffee. Two teaspoons. It hardly seems like anything.
