I felt like today I’d do a post about a bunch of random things going on in my life.
Such as this:
Do you know who that is? Yeah….I didn’t really either, even though I’ve seen the movies! His name is Booboo Stewart and he plays a werewolf (Seth Clearwater – who is in Jacob’s “pack”) in the Twilight movies! I thought that was pretty fun. It’s quite interesting to me how tiny he is. I mean, we are basically the same size (I’m just under 5’7). In the movies they make the guys look so much bigger! I read the books and thought they were pretty good, but I have to say the movies were absolutely terrible. At least to me. And I sometimes like cheesy things!
C and I went to a local casino and played bingo last Friday night. It was so much fun! It was really cheap too! We paid $10 each and each played 7 or 8 rounds. If we would have won (sad face) our payout would have been $600.00! That’s a lot! You play even cheaper ($3 or $6), but it’s a smaller payout ($100 or $400). My only complaint was that it started at midnight and lasted until about2am. After working all day Friday, this little grandma was ready for bed about 5 games in!
Last I mentioned books I said I was currently reading Bossy Pants by Tina Fey. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. She is funny and I enjoyed reading it, but I had a hard time really getting into it and getting that feeling that I just wanted to read it all in one sitting. It took me a little while.
Since then I have also read
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me by Mindy Kaling – This was kind of the same as Bossypants. It was funny, but didn’t keep me dying to read more.
My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler – I don’t know why I read three memoirs in a row. I’m a weirdo. This was meh. I really liked her other books so I thought I might like this too. It was mildly funny and a quick read, but not really that exciting.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Um yeah. I was way behind on starting this one. I see what all of the hype is though, it was fantastic!! I loved it. This one definitely made me want to sit and read every second of the day!
Currently I am reading the Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. I saw some other bloggers were doing this book as a book club, so I thought I’d pick up the copy I’ve owned for over a year and read it. I am only a few chapters in and kind of bored. This is yet again a memoir. Hmmm, I see a theme here. I hope it picks up soon!
Anyone have any new book suggestions for me?
I mentioned a while ago I was going to try watching Breaking Bad and Mad Men. I hated Breaking Bad. I barely made it through one episode. C liked it, but I definitely didn’t. Next we tried Mad Men. We are almost through the first season. I like this show, but I don’t absolutely love it. I hope it gets better as the show goes on and we get to know the characters more.
We’ve also decided to try and watch all of the Walking Dead before the new season starts. I have seen an episode or two of this show, but not in order so I can’t really say if I like it or not. I guess we will find out soon!
I am really excited for several of the new fall shows coming out! I think the other day I sat down and recorded probably 15-20 new shows on our DVR. Woah! I am sure there will be several we don’t like (like the show Mom that aired last night – blech) but I am hopeful for several. We watched the first episode of Hostages last night which was really good. I just don’t know how they are going to carry the show on for a whole season, let alone more than that!
Are there any new fall shows you are excited to see?
Well that’s it for now for me! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
