I'm alive! Did you wonder what happened? I'd been posting great and keeping up with other blogs great and bam! This week happened. I had such great plans of how my week was going to go too! Needless to say, it did not start well. My roomie got sick on Monday and I didn't feel good on Tuesday or Wednesday. I never actually got sick, but my body must have been fighting it hard because it sure let me know it wasn't happy. But enough about yucky stuff that y'all have no interest in.
Did you have a good week? I hope better than mine. Although the last couple days have perked me up again. Today especially. First of all, it's Friday! What's not to like about that except to wish that it was Saturday? ;) And I went to work, but had a lunch meeting in another city, so including drive time I spent most of the day out of the office with one of my favorite co-workers. I probably shouldn't mention her as she might get embarrassed, but she totally made my week so much better when she mentioned how she reads my blog and liked some of my reviews *waves hand* Hi there! Hoping she's reading this so I don't feel too ridiculous speaking about someone not even paying attention. Anyway when she told me that, it completely brightened my day and made my week much more awesome. So while it didn't start great, it has ended fabulously! :D
On the plus side of not feeling well, it is possible to get some reading done. Yahoo! (I'm quoting my nephew. At Christmas, my dad was handing out envelopes to everyone, and when S opened his and saw the money inside, he cried "Yahoo!" It was adorable.) (He's only 3 by the way.) (Why yes, I am quite fond of my nephew, why do you ask?) I only finished just a couple books mind you, so reviews shall be coming forthwith. (How quick does 'forthwith' mean? Not tonight, sorry.) (But they will be coming!)
Meanwhile back in my brain (I agree, it's a scary place), I'm thinking about the lunch meeting we had today. When we arrived and sat down, they had these little bitty cups of dessert already sitting around the center pieces on the tables. They were so cute that we couldn't tell if they were real or not. Have you ever been in a room full of people you don't know and tried to eat something fake? Neither have I, but I was a little worried about it. Plus I didn't want to be the first one to pick a dessert because that's just not cool. It's way better to wait and be the second or third. (I have no idea why it's not cool, but haven't you ever noticed how no one wants to go first with those sorts of things? Or not. Maybe it's just me. Probably. Okay then!) Well, whether I looked cool or looked silly, it was a good dessert. Something chocolaty. The only downside was I had waited so long to try it that I no longer had any drink left and it made me incredibly thirsty! And of course I wouldn't dare to stand up and go get more drink because that would require getting up in front of all those people I didn't know as the meeting had already started. You see my dilemma? Perhaps not, but it felt like a small dilemma then. Have no fear, I hung on til the end and survived. I didn't die of thirst so all's well that ends well!
In case you haven't figured it out, I really dislike being in front of people. You couldn't tell, could you? Like I said, my brain is a scary place. Trust me, I don't make sense to myself half the time. So if you're sitting there shaking your head at my ridiculousness, don't worry I'm totally with you! :D
Speaking of fabulous ideas (Yes. We were.), have you ever gone searching for a geocache? My cousin and his children introduced me to this fabulously fun free-time frolic. Okay that makes no sense. Although it is a fun little thing to do when you have free-time. Because it does take time and it also takes somebody smart since those little buggers can be hidden really, really well. But not so much a frolic really. Hmmmm. Nope, no frolicking was had, but that's a story for another day! Perhaps if there's any interest shone, I shall tell the tale someday soon. So I suppose that's your homework. Or my homework. Or whatever I mean. What I'm trying to say is I wanna know if you wanna know. Or whatever. You know what I mean. If not, that's nothing new, so.......well. Yeah.
Okay so, anyone else all caught up on The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? I am so loving the Pemberly arc! It's become a
I shall leave you to it then. Go forth (watch a few videos on YouTube) and have a fantabulously wondrous and splendiferously awesome weekend! :D (And sorry for all the Norman Rockwell pics. I started a new Pinterest board and remembered how much I like his paintings.)
