Whelp, this is the last full week of summer for Brandon and I didn't hole up in the house completely. (Yay me!) We went to see Inception
which was pretty dang good and it was off to the pool today. The water was bathwater tepid but felt good collapsing into, nonetheless, after feeling a tad wibbly-wobbly by the end of my walk. Serves me right for being a lazo the past two weeks.
The D*C catalog came in the mail but I still haven't really begun to get excited, though I am looking forward to seeing my friends! I discussed my trip with Brandon, today, to see where he might want to stay while I am gone. He said that he just wanted to spend the weekend at home. I think he is old enough but, still, I am a wee bit leery about him being in the house by himself, overnight ,and for the whole weekend. Am I being a worry wart? I do trust him not to destroy the place while I am gone. After all, I work 12 hour shifts and he is here alone for that. Is it as big a step as I am making it out to be?de23
, after trying rather unsuccessfully to get into Making Money
, I decided to just give it up for now and read Mort
(The spreadsheet you sent me was very handy, even if I am still pretty confused.) I LOVED Mort!!
I felt these characters were pretty engaging from the very start and, I have to say, DEATH was a hoot! I found myself really empathizing with his Mid Eternity crisis, if there can be such a thing where eternity is concerned. There were plenty of LOL moments, the most recent being this bit:In the great hall of the Unseen University, everything happened at once*
and then the post script at the bottom of the page,*This was not precisely true. It is generally agreed by philosophers that the shortest time in which everything can happen is one thousand billion years.
Anyway, you think I could borrow a couple more from you that I can get next week or when we head to Apple Hill?
I finished Season 2 of Leverage
with "The Fairy Godparents Job", "The Order 23 Job", and "The Ice Man Job" being among my favorites. "The Future Job" brought me to tears rather unexpectedly. But, why was Sophie out of it for much of it? Was she preggers or something? Anyway, I thought Jeri Ryan filled in nicely and even I was fooled during her introductory episode. Go writers! Oh, Hardison, you make me Happy! I suppose it will be awhile before season 3 is out. I don't even know what season they are on right now?
Ick, work tomorrow. What has happened my work ethic? It used to be rather pronounced.
