Holy crap, it’s May (okay, it’s still April as I’m typing this, but only for four more hours…so again, I say, holy crap). That means summer is just around the corner. I’m really not ready for that, people. It rained last week…in my mind, that means it’s still winter.
April was pretty much a non-event blog-wise. I kind of tuned out and dropped out. I even entertained thoughts of quitting (for no other reason than non-interest on my part). But then I think about how much I’d miss all of you and how I’d have no one to talk with (even when it’s a one sided conversation). Plus, my BFF is moving to freakin’ Idaho at the end of the month, so then I’ll really have no one to talk to, especially about books.
And while I’m having a pity party…I have a sunburn on the back of my neck (my reward for a bike ride) and a headache, and consequently I feel like crap. Not sick…just that grumpy, icky feeling that comes from sunburn. Mostly caused by the fact that I’m pissed I got a sunburn in the first place. It wasn’t even that hot out!
Okay, enough with the whining. Note to self: never blog sunburned.
April was, overall, a fun month. There were a few glitches, but lots of good times. I’d write a letter to April (like I did to January and February), but I still owe March a letter. Kind of like I owe the last 6 or so books that I’ve read a blog post. So why I’m writing this drivel instead of focusing on all of that? Good question.
My reading picked up a wee bit, although the audio listen of Einstein has come to a screeching halt. Oh, and the Zinn readalong. That seems to have come to a screeching halt, too. Or maybe it’s suffering from a flat tire. Whatever. The book has become hellaciously boring, Jenners quit (more power to her), and although I’m not quite ready to concede defeat, it’s not looking too good for ol’ Zinn.
But Kim and I are doing a buddy read of Catch-22 this month, so expect some craziness ahead.
I’ll also be in San Francisco for a weekend (with friends, so thanks for all of the meet-up offers, but I have to pass this time), doing my monthly drive to Fresno for a work meeting (woo-hoo), thinking about when to squeeze in a day trip to Santa Barbara with my mom, having good-bye lunches with the Idaho-bound BFF, and going on walks and bike rides with HB (who seems to think if he stops moving he’ll rust). Oh, and blogging.
