  2. curtains that don’t block light
  3. lack of top sheet
  4. not enough hangers

    Mecha-godzilla… Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla. 🙂 I only say that with love as I am a HUGE Godzilla fan. Can't wait for Godzilla 2014!!!! Almost as anxious for it as your next book!

    The sushi pandas are gorgeous.
