1. I think of all sorts of cool things to post on Tuesdays…while I’m working and can’t write them down. Then I forget them. Go figure. Apparently I’m not the only one because I seem to remember M from m-pir-i-cal stating something similar, though for the life of me now I can’t find the post that mentioned it. But anyway, you should pop over and take a look at her blog–she’s a riot!
2. Every once in a while I get this insane urge to go really, really blonde.
Thanks for keeping me on track, Fat Amy!
3. What the heck is up with the changing release dates on the paperback copy of A Song of Ice and Fire: A Dance With Dragons? First Amazon had it listed for August 2012, then it changed to May 2013, and now it says OCTOBER 2013. I’m tired of waiting but I don’t want to break down and buy the hardcover (I really dislike lugging around hardcover books, especially to work).
4. On a related note: George R.R. Martin, you’d better hurry up and FINISH THE DAMN SERIES. The man is taking forever to write the last books and at this rate, the hubby and I are starting to think there are good odds he’ll die without completing the story. You can read more about his lackadaisical approach to the whole thing here to see why this is bothering me.
5. At least the third book in Lauren Oliver’s Delirium trilogy is finally on shelves! This dystopian/sci-fi trilogy is shelved with the teen books but it’s really worth a read. I couldn’t put down the first two books and I can’t wait to see how the story concludes.
6. Dear Simon Pegg and Steve Coogan: please, please, please make a movie together. Not just a cameo, a real movie. A crime comedy would be excellent.
7. Thank goodness the weather is finally warming up. For the longest time it’s just been frigid as can be. The sun is shining now but this meme still makes me laugh:
8. One of these days maybe I’ll learn that it isn’t wise to break in new shoes by walking halfway across town in them. Until then, I’ll repeat this ritual every spring. Hello, blisters.
9. I’m glad Easter is over. It’s really hard to avoid a sugar binge when there’s holiday candy for sale everywhere you turn.
10. I decided I need to exercise more and thought picking up a bellydance workout DVD would be a great way to exercise without feeling like I’m “working out”. Now, I’m not naturally graceful or a talented dancer, but I still didn’t think it would be so hard to make my feet, hips and arms all do different things at the same time! And at such a fast tempo! I think once I learn all of the steps and movements it’ll be a lot of fun, especially since I already love Middle Eastern dance music. Right now I’m just trying to catch on to the rhythm.
