Some miscellaneous thoughts for a Tuesday, because I’m eight reviews behind, and really, why work on reviews when you can procrastinate:
*Holy crap, it’s March! How did that happen? And I know, I had the same reaction to the beginning of February. But I’m really beginning to believe that old saying that time goes by faster as you get older.
*That top book is my current read. And let me just say…wow. Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven was Sunday’s read…it was wow-worthy, too. I haven’t started New York yet, it just sits there taunting me.
*I mentioned last Friday that we were going to see the B-52s, and we did. And it was awesome. Even Hamburger, who is the son of a musician and grew up playing the trumpet and bass and is therefore kind of hard to impress musically, was impressed. Cindy Wilson’s voice was a little hoarse at times, but otherwise, they rocked. Especially when you consider they’ve been around since the 70′s. They should’ve been the halftime show for the Superbowl.
*Before the concert (which was at Chumash Casino) we had dinner at Pea Soup Andersen’s. It was incredibly mediocre. If you ever see the billboards on 101 (they’re hard to miss), just keep on driving.
*Next month is the LA Times Festival of Books. Yippee! I’ll be there, will you?
*I was thinking of organizing a book blogger lunch in April in Santa Barbara for anyone who was interested in a little drive, but at the time I had forgotten about FoB. And since BEA is in May, that’s a bad month, too. So maybe in June or July? Anyone interested?
