Good morning ya’ll!
Sarah update: Not much, I suppose. I had a nice, lovely 4 days off this past week. I was actually able to finish a book during my days off, which hardly ever happens. But, this week did of course fly by. We had game night, which was fun and lovely. It’s basically the only time I ever get to play Call of Duty anymore, but surprisingly enough I’m usually still good at it. I also got to hang out with my sister Heather and Emma and Josh (my niece and nephew) on Wednesday. I did some flashcards with Josh for his homework, and he did a pretty good job, but Emma surprised us all by shouting out some of the math answers and reading some of the cards. She’s only 4, so yay for her! And then me and Heather started watching season 2 of The Big Bang Theory and ate possibly one of my favorite new desserts - coffee ice cream with mini cannolis. And I borrowed TBBT and will probably finish this season while I’m at work. Luckily, I already have season 3 from the library.
Oh, and naturally the other big thing this week was in the news – zombie-like incidents. While I’m a skeptic and obviously there isn’t a huge outbreak right now… I’m also suspicious. Cause I’ve never really heard of “bath salts” being a hot drug and it’s weird that all of the sudden several cases where it turns people into crazy cannibals just sprung up out of no where. I guess we’ll see. The honeyman and I are definitely going shopping for some more apocalypse-survival stuff soon, cause we’re paranoid (and smart) like that.
Anyways, this coming week is actually looking not that great. It’s the week where I only have 3 days off (booooo) and my sis Amanda is coming for a night with baby L. Which is great cause I miss them, but will take up a lot of time because I’m driving her around on Tuesday to look at cars for sale. This means probably definitely cancelling game night this week, plus I’m going to be scrambling to keep up with stuff online; It’s Armchair BEA this week, and not only am I participating but I’m also on the commenting committee, so I’m going to be online a LOT this week. Bad timing for Amanda to come, but oh well. She does really need a car, so how can I say no? Plus I get to see L
Oh, and Gabby has been nuts this week. She woke me up Monday morning by attacking my face, and she’s just been super hyper and wanting to rough house a bit. She’s also learned that by using her sharp little kitty claws, she can climb all the way up me when I’m standing in the kitchen. She thinks anytime I’m in the kitchen is time to give her food, so even when I’m doing dishes or making the honeyman’s lunch for work, she’s climbing up me. And it’s starting to wear on my jeans a bit. Very bad kitty. But she’s also had her super sweet moments this week, when she takes naps with me or waits at the door for us to come home, so I can’t stay annoyed with her
My god, I’m one of those people who can’t stop talking about their pet.
Bookish update: I finished 3 books this week, and DNF-ed another. I finished Maus 1 & 2 by Art Spiegelman, A Night Like This by Julia Quinn, and American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I DNF-ed The Duke is Mine by Eloisa James, and wrote a post about my reasons for quitting it. That’s a lot of books in one week for me! I have to say that thanks to the Bout of Books readathon earlier in the month, May has been my best reading month of the year. I think I ended up finishing about 13 books, which is awesome. I hope I can keep it up through June.
Oh and this week started the Married With Zombies scavenger-hunt readalong and it is SO much fun. The scavenger-hunt part is what makes it the most fun (besides me getting to re-read this awesome book) and I’m really enjoying it.
What else… I also got a TON of books from the library this week. I put like 10 on hold, and sure at $1 a hold that added up but it’s worth it. I got a bunch of physics books out, that I’m probably going to look through to see if I want to purchase them or not and if I’m lucky, I’ll get to read 1 or 2 before returning them. I also got some fiction books out that I’m really excited about, but I’m too lazy to remember them all right now. It was very exciting though, almost like real book shopping.
Oh and I’m still reading Visions of the Multiverse, which is good so far but I’m not going any farther in it until at least after Amanda leaves this week. It’s about to go into some more complex topics about quantum physics and I don’t want to start it and then forget it while I’m busy doing other stuff.
OK folks, that’s all the updating I have in me today. I’m going to go warm up some breakfast and spend most of the rest of my shift watching The Big Bang Theory. Yay!
Hope everyone has an awesome week!
