Currently: May 19th 2013

Trying to find a way to get myself to post more often.  I'm going to borrow (steal?) this format from Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness.  Let's see how it goes.

Time // 9:42 a.m.

Place // My apartment 

Eating and Drinking // Nothing yet this morning. Had a lot of pizza from the place down the street yesterday and I think I'm still full?

Reading // I'm reading a book on my iPad (Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles by Ron Currie, Jr), reading another on my iPhone (The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson) and alternating between the library book I have checked out (God Is Dead by Ron Currie, Jr.) and a book given to me by a close friend (A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness).

After finishing Everything Matters!, I've gone on a Ron Currie, Jr. binge. Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles is really interesting stylistically, but it hasn't grabbed me as much as Everything Matters! I also got Currie's first collection of linked short stories from the library, God Is Dead, which examines what would happen if God actually died.  I'm not very far into it yet, but it looks promising.

I've had The Family Fang in Kindle format for months and I didn't start it until this week and I LOVE IT.

I'm reading A Discovery of Witches because a really wonderful person told me that I should read it. It's a big bulky book, so I often choose to read something else, but when I chose to pick it up, I enjoy the story and the history. It's not my usual thing, but I'm glad I'm reading it.

Watching //Watched my first episode of Adventure Time this week and it's just as weird and wonderful as promised.

Last night we struck out on two Netflix movies before we found one we liked.  DNF'd both Bachelorette and The Pill, but watched and enjoyed The Giant Mechanical Man.

On the TV front, finished and really enjoyed The New Girl (need to go back and watch season one)

Listening // I've really been into the new Waaves album:

Working // Work is crazy.  That's all I have to say.  At some point I'll catch up.  I hope.

Doing // Caught dinner with some old friends on Friday night and I met a lot of new people.  Yesterday went to Bark in the Park over at Forest Park.  Lots of dogs!

Today is going to be clean and catch up on work day.  I'm considering a walk in nearby Lafayette Park and maybe some reading before I come back here to work.
