Sarah Sunday!


Me looking tired, but happy about my new cutlass – FLOWERS – new books – Gabby being weird – Gabby being even more weird


Happy Sunday morning there, ya’ll!

So, stuff happened this week that is sucky for the short-term, but awesome for the long-term (I think). Basically someone at my job quit really abruptly, so for the next 1-2 months, I’m doing 10-hour days, 5 days a week at my job. BUT at the same time I’m also training to move into a slightly different position at work that will have me doing more important stuff and learning a lot, will be regular 8 to 5 hours (or earlier, if I want) with nice hour-long lunches, and will pay more. The OT sucks right now because I’m working 8:30 to 7 and I have practically zero time for working out or reading. But I have a new position to look forward to when that’s over, and hopefully that will get me back on track for reading and blogging things as well. You may have noticed me commenting sporadically or on posts that are days to a week old… this is going to be the norm for a while. I’m tryin.

Reading has been AWFUL for me this month. It’s killing me a bit. I re-read The Rosie Project (awesome), read two graphic novels (Revival Vol. 1 and Chew Vol. 2), and quit Bleak House because seriously, no time for all that. I’m on page 306 of 435 in Assassin’s Apprentice, which I’m actually really enjoying except that I’m reading it basically a half-hour at a time. I was not prepared to work this much this week, so coming home and trying to figure out dinner has been a pain in the ass. I’ve basically come home, made food, watched an episode of something with the honeyman, and gone to bed. I’m planning things better for this week so at least I won’t have to waste a bunch of time making food.

ANYWAYS. Happy Valentine’s Day! Which I know was two days ago, but shut up. The honeyman did a FABULOUS job and got me a cutlass! It’s sharp, full-tang, not too heavy, and awesome. I’m soooooo going to be a pirate for Halloween this year. And of course, flowers and food. (And I got him a collapsible bow and arrow set he had been wanting.) We basically just hung out together Friday night and Saturday, watching most of Archer season 4 and spending time together. I did finally get to the gym this weekend too, which was awesome. I really missed it during the week and I think desperately needed it just to release tension and all that from work. It was fun.

workout happy


Other things…

  • I’ve listened to a full 1o episodes of Welcome to Night Vale now, so I might do a review-thingy of that this week, if I can squeeze it in.
  • There’s a multidimensional new geometric shape that means important things for quantum field theory.
  • I definitely fell on black ice on V-Day night. I tried to save myself so I fell pretty slowly, but still scraped up my left knuckles somehow.
  • I’m going to do a Sprite vs. Sierra Mist taste challenge today. We bought both, and the honeyman is going to blindfold me and have me taste test them, because he thinks I can’t tell the difference. He is wrong, because I KNOW Sprite is way more delicious.

And now I’m off to rush through all my errand so I can get home, do laundry, and read my ass off. I want to finish Assassin’s Apprentice, Saga Vol. 1, and Hellsing Vol. 1. Oh and yeah, I bought my first manga novel… I have reached a level of nerd that I never thought I would, but I do want to get more into Hellsing. I’ve seen some of the show, and it’s good, and the honeyman loves it.


How has everyone’s week been? Do any fun things on Valentine’s Day? Anything you’re excited about this week?





  1. I used to like Sierra Mist but I think they changed their formula or something a while back. Either that or my tastes abruptly shifted… on this one specific thing. I do think I’d be able to tell the difference though.


  2. Maybe it’s a Canada thing because I have no idea what Sierra Mist is! I do like Sprite sometimes, but I’m definitely on a gingerale kick lately, especially the cranberry variety!

    I have never, ever read a manga book. I really should just get one from the library to try out sometime!

    Love the picture of Gabby — on top of the fridge?? Must be really warm up there, though! And ouch — black ice sucks!

    Hope you have another good week!


  3. That cutlass is bad ass! I’ve read both the Saga graphic novels and really enjoyed them. Your taste test sounds fun! I once did one for Pepsi and Coke and was sure I knew the difference but it was kind of tricky. Tons of fun though! And speaking of geeky and Valentine’s, my BF gave me an awesome Mario-inspired card that says, “I will go through any world…just to be by your side,” complete with Mario and Peach. Totally adorbs! Hope the rest of your week is better and not too exhausting! 🙂


  4. Ooh, the new job sounds good in the long term, even if it means longer hours for the time being. The end goal will be worth it!
    Glad you had a good Valentines Day, and I love the photos of your cat, she always looks very expressive.


    1. I always think that Gabby has an expressive face, but then I wonder if that’s just because she’s mine… kind of like how all parents think their kid is more beautiful or more smart, even if they’re not, lol.


  5. Oh maaan, it does seem like you have awful busy times right now, but on the other hand if it’s for the greater cause… I think I’d feel exactly the same way. I’m glad you’re liking Assassin’s Apprentice – I feel like picking up another Robb book soon as well.


    1. I’m just hoping I can get through these next several weeks of OT with my sanity in tact without my blog falling into complete disrepair. It’s hard finding the time to even hop on for a few minutes a day.


  6. I took a giant spill this week too! Somehow I ended up with two store wrists and a BIG bruise on my butt, lol. I don’t know exactly how that happened. My 13 year old tried recreating the fall so we could figure it out but still, I’m confused.

    Sounds like your job is kicking your butt right now. I hope it ends up being super awesome!

    Happy belated Vday and have a great week 😀

    PS. I said the word butt twice in this comment. That has to be some kind of record.
