How would everyone feel about a babbling, disjointed blog post for your Wednesday morning? And one with NO pictures whatsoever? I'll take your silence as willing consent. Great!
There are some really important things going on in my life right now. Major, life-changing stuff here (please read that with a hearty dose of sarcasm). But first and foremost I should mention that today is Josh's birthday! It would not serve to put that information at the end so let's just get that right out there. I love you, I love you, I love you! I'm sorry you have to work today, because working on your birthday is a total bummer but at least we're going out for Mexican tonight, so you have that to look forward to. That and presents. Presents make everything better.
And now, on to more pressing matters.
I finished Game of Thrones, you guys. All of it. All five of them long ass, brilliant books. I've been reading those and nothing else since summer. SUMMER! I'm just starting to come to terms with it. And now I don't know what to do with myself. On the one hand I feel like a newly freed Meereenese slave, shackles broken - the literary world mine for the taking! Unchained from the bondage of these books and free to read whatever I choose. Praise the mother! On the other hand I feel a black pit of emptiness and despair opening in my soul. What once was filled by all my Westerosi friends is now a lonely, gaping hole as dark at Drogon's eyes and as wide as the Dothraki sea...
I'm going to miss those books more than I can say, and if George R.R. Martin dies before he finishes this series I'm gonna f*** some shit up.
In other news, I started P90X again last night. Jumped right back in to it with Ab Ripper and Cardio X. Which, I realized this morning was a very bad idea. Nay, a TERRIBLE idea. Today my legs are like noodles and the pain in my mid section is laughable. But really though, please don't make me laugh because that just makes it worse, ok? Thanks. But no pain no gain! Or whatever it is they say that makes you believe washboard abs are worth all this trouble. As of today, I remain unconvinced.
Aaaand that's it. That's all I've got on the exciting news front, other than I painted the risers on my front staircase white and I'm waffling with the idea of painting the spindles as well. You and I both know I'm gonna do it, but it's just going to be so much work that I'm trying to talk myself out of it. I know! Earth shaking stuff over here, just calm down everyone!
Anyway, that's all I've got. Over and out and all that jazz and if you have any good book recommendations I am now officially open to suggestions! I've been pinning like crazy in anticipation of this moment and now I'm stuck deciding what to read first. I think I'm might have to kick it off with Malala's book, but what would you recommend?
