Well, OK, I guess the once a week thing did not work out as I hoped….due mainly to circumstances which I will explain fully in the “What’s Going On” section of this entry. So, without further ado, on with the show….
WHAT I’M READING: Or, more accurately, listening to on tape…Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I know it’s been forever since it came out, and I actually bought it the day of release, but I just keep parceling it out to myself in tiny increments as rewards for good behavior…e.g. – working out. It’s a fairly good system if you ignore the concept that I actually have to bribe my inner two-year-old to do things I should, as an adult, just suck it up and DO! But, hey, whatever works.
COOL MOVIE I’VE SEEN LATELY: Swimming Pool. The ending was a bit of a let-down, and I thought that they should have cut the whole “murder mystery” sub-plot and focused on the character development…but all in all, a worthwhile flick. B+.
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: Jason Mraz. I like him. Don’t get me wrong, he’s no Hottie John Mayer…but I like him .
WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING LATELY: OK…first and foremost….I got in a car accident, which sucks IN THE EXTREME! My tire blew out on the freeway, across three lanes of busy traffic. My car hit the center divide, and now it is TOTALED!
OK, that sucks so badly that I am finished talking about it…it’s too depressing.
In other news, I was going to go to the Jack Johnson/Ben Harper concert, but that did not happen due in equal parts to the car situation and a last minute change of venue which put it at 2 hours away from me instead of 1. I heard about the concert from my friend from work, Heather, and she ended up not going as well because she did not feel well. BUT…her husband, Nate, DID go to the concert, and he said it was quite good. I definitely want to catch one or both of them the next time they roll through town!
My book-on-tape project (asking my friends to record picture books on tape for my listening library) is going well! I have gotten some returned, and my friend Janice even ordered books to be sent to me…AWWWW!!!!! She is the best!!!! I haven’t even emailed her to say Thank You, come to think of it, I need to do that tomorrow.
Well…I will write more later….and I actually will, honest! LOL
