Hey guys! This week went TOO FAST. Way too fast. I had four days off, but most of those days ended up being so busy that I hardly had time to enjoy it.
So Monday was a day that made me realize how kind of neurotic I am. Basically I had some stuff I had to do, but waiting for my sister so we could go to the gym really threw my schedule off and I got weirdly agitated about it. But then the honeyman took me to lunch at Cheeburger and we walked around the beach and it was a lovely day and I felt a whole ton more relaxed. And THEN we got Abbott’s ice cream and walked around the beach more, and then we sat on a bench and there was gum on the seat that I didn’t see and that kind of ruined the only pair of capri jeans that I had. So that happened.
Tuesday and Wednesday were both kind of really busy – we saw friends, ate delicious food, I did a crap ton of laundry and packed some more. Thursday was the one day that I didn’t do anything – I read all day and finished two books, and then stayed up way too late with the honeyman finishing season 4 of Breaking Bad.
Speaking of Breaking Bad, we got into a discussion with some friends about it and basically they said they had no interest in it because the idea of a guy making/selling meth to support his family after he died of cancer was just ridiculous. Something about how selling meth isn’t honorable. And well OBVIOUSLY it’s not a good thing to do… but basically, I think Walt’s intentions were really good in the beginning and I wouldn’t be furious at someone for doing the same thing. I get wanting to support your family and saying fuck it, I’m gonna die anyways. Plus, the nerd in my totally loves how awesome Walt is at cooking meth because he’s a chemistry whiz. Anyways, I think our friends should watch it… and I might just pull the friend test card to get them to so they can get addicted to it and we can talk about it and all hate Skyler together.
ANYWAYS. Getting off track. This coming week is probably going to be really busy – I need to get as much packing as possible done, and I need to try to get ahead a bit in blog posts. Bout of Books is coming up (starts August 19th!) and I’m hosting one of the challenges and I want to get a lot done now so that I can read a lot that week. Soooo… yeah. Man, this month is going too fast.
Bookish update: I finished A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf (rage-inducing), Dead Man Rising by Lilith Saintcrow (second book syndrome), Goodbye, Chunky Rice by Craig Thompson (weird short graphic novel), and The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence (fan-freaking-tastic, loved it).
I’m now focusing on finishing Edge of the Universe by Paul Halpern, which for some reason I’ve been really slow about. I might also start Blankets by Craig Thompson, cause you know. A giant graphic novel sounds like good Sunday reading.
Alright, that’s all I got. How are you guys doing? Thoughts on our Breaking Bad discussion? Have you read The Universe Versus Alex Woods yet, and if not, then WHY NOT?
