In My Mailbox (27): Winter


It's cold guys, winter is here on Long Island and I am freezing my little toes off! My hideaway is my bed with comforter and all I have been eating is ramen and pizza rolls to warm me up. Then I do some Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to get them muscles into shape! Yeah!

That's an interesting cover for The Girl Who Owned a City. My friend and I really enjoyed reading that one a couple of years ago, though my copy's from the '90s, I think.
