Fuck, is it Sunday already??
So I didn’t do a Sarah Sunday post last week, because it was the readathon on Saturday and then I watched my nephew all day on Sunday and I was SO TIRED. But it’s been a pretty good two weeks. I had a couple days off last week, which was amazing and magical and christ I can’t wait to not work. This week was busy and tiring. The next couple weeks will probably be the same. Hooray.
I had date night with the honeyman on Thursday and we just went to dinner and then walked around the mall, and even though that sounds boring it’s actually kind of perfect, especially when I’m working so much and we don’t get to hang out as much. We eat delicious food and look at things and TALK and it’s the best. I love that even after 7 years talking to him is still like the best thing ever. (Sorry I’m sappy, but in three months he’ll be at basic and ahhh I’ll miss him a lot then.) Also, I can talk to him about books that I’m reading or have finished and he actually listens, and in a weird way it’s actually super helpful – it helps organize my thoughts and attempt to talk about a book in a way that will sound interesting, I guess? I suck at telling people about books (and movies, and tv shows, and games….). Even when I used to work in a bookstore. Even trying to talk to friends about them. Even after years of blogging.
I’m starting to finally realize what the hell is wrong with me. When I start to tell a person about a book, I immediately start to stress about getting the gist of the book out quickly so I’m not boring said person to death, and then because I’m rushing it sounds all jumbled and makes no sense, and then I worry about trying to tell just enough to sound interesting and fun without giving too many spoilers, and for fuck’s sake… it’s ridiculous. I’m going to go ahead and blame this on the fact that I have like two people who read in my life, and they both tend to not like the same kind of books as me anyways. My reviews are SLIGHTLY better, but not much. And I know they’ve gotten worse in the last year, because with this job I just don’t have as much time to spend thinking about my books and writing and re-writing reviews until they sound half-way decent. So… sorry for that, but thank goodness for the honeyman for listening to me be excited about the things I’m reading, or my reviews would be even worse.
I had a girl’s night at a friend’s house last night, which was fun. I go to maybe two of these a year, in which my friend has a ton of girls over and everyone drinks and plays games and chats, and it’s a good time and pretty much the only time I socialize with other women that aren’t family or co-workers. It doesn’t mean I actively like most of them – at these girl’s nights, there’s usually only one or two other ladies there besides my friend that I actually enjoy talking to – but it’s still nice to go out and do once in a while.
What else… BookRiot’s sister site about comics, Panels, finally released their first podcast and I’m SO excited about that. In the first episode they mention something about going to an X-Men burlesque show in NYC.
And speaking of comics, if any of you lovely readers live in the Rochester area, next Sunday 11/2 there is a big comics sale happening! 1st Print Comics is hosting it – see the flyer at the top right of my blog for details. All comics are going to be $1, and half of the proceeds go to the Pancreatic Cancer Association of Western NY. I can’t wait to check it out and stock up on some things. Let me know on Twitter if you’re going to stop by!
And now I have a nice day of working out, laundry, and hopefully reading ahead of me. And then it’s back to work tomorrow. Le sigh.
How’s your weekend going?
