the penultimate peril

penultimate = next to last....

does this mean that this is the next to last tragedy of the Beaudilaire's?
this past tuesday the very highly anticipated (at the very least by me) 12th book in the series of unfortunate events by lemony snicket was finally available. after coming back from maxville i skipped on down to chapters to pick it up. thus far it is the thickest book in the series. i love these books, they are so devestatingly humorous and so humorously devestating.

will violet, klaus and sunny beaudilaire ever be safe from count olaf? only time will tell. i am almost done this one, and then comes the long wait for the next one.

on another note (though still perhaps a perilous thought)
do you know what the top two most violent professions in canada are?
well the first is slightly obvious....
#1 Police Officer
however, the second may come as a shocker, until you think about it....
#2 Nurse
there you have it, something they do not tell you in your first year orientation (or for that matter up until year three they still have failed to mention it) only if you take psychology of death and dying as an elective will you ever chance to find out this little tidbit.

fall is dead seriously here. it snuck up on me and now here it is, but i get to wear my toque that roslyn gave me last year for christmas, which i do indeed adore, as well as my new wool scarf from value village, and the puffy vest has made a full return! lovely.

thom and i are almost done Lost, and i have no idea how we will wait for the next one, ( i suppose three seasons of the west wing may tide us over).

anyhow, Scott has a new blog, you should check it out here. it's very scott-ey, (like ol' new-ey perhaps?)

olivia has been taking to sleeping at my feet in this cooler weather. i like that.
