whoops, books  
Whoever puts out the display books in the YA section of the library does a really good job, because I often walk out of there with something I hadn't gone in to get. Today it was Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong, a graphic novel by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks. I'd read Hicks' Friends With Boys last year and recognized the style, so it didn't take much to get me to pick this one up. No ghosts this time, alas, but a funny story about teenage cliques fighting, friendship, and building battle robots in basements.

In other news, I think I'm going to just stop buying hot chocolate mix. I like the just-add-water convenience, but I've only found one brand that actually tastes chocolaty enough for me, and when I was reading the ingredients on the box a few weeks ago, I thought, "surely one does not actually *need* hydrogenated coconut oil in one's hot chocolate?" So I tried a different brand today, because, hey, free trade cocoa and normal ingredients! Which would all be great if it actually tasted much like chocolate... I always seemed to have bad luck, somehow, making mugs of hot chocolate from cocoa powder and milk and sugar, but I guess I'll give it another go. (Also, there was NO cocoa powder in the store. Only baking chocolate. What even.)
