It’s Monday night, the end of my weekend, and I have nothing much to show for it except, get this…
33 hours of sleep.
That’s right, I said 33. Not consecutive, but I did get in 12 hours Friday night, followed by some Saturday naps, followed by two more nights of ten hour sleeps.
I don’t think I’ve slept that much since I had mono in high school.
It was awesome. (The sleep, not the mono. Mono pretty much blows chunks. (And did I ever tell you that HB was in a band in high school named The Chunks? I know…so gross!) (And even worse…my brother was in a band last year that almost named themselves My Dog’s Junk. That’s just wrong.) (Okay, enough of Band Names Gone Wrong.))
Anyhoosie, I’m pretty sure the excessive sleeping was because of the little cold I was fighting (or a supremely wicked case of allergies…who knows). But, the cold/allergies/whatever is gone and tomorrow it’s back to work. Although I’m betting it’s going to be really hard to get up on time!
In book land, I did manage to finish Judging a Book by Its Lover (snarkily great) and get a good way into The Wisdom of Psychopaths (I can’t quite seem to get away from those psychopaths). I’m also listening to Under the Dome (verdict so far: Big Jim is a total and complete asswipe and I’m kinda in love with Barbie (who is a guy, not a doll)).
I should also be starting Bleak House, since I somehow agreed to participate in a readalong. And call me crazy, but I’m also considering joining in the readalong for The Count of Monte Cristo (two chunksters in two months…yikes!).
And it seems like there is strong interest in the readalong of The Shining that we mentioned during the #IT-along (speaking of which, I really need to remove the button from my sidebar…will someone please remind me??). So yes, there will be a #ShineOn. I’m leaning towards February (let’s get the holidays way out of the way before diving back into the horror, yes?). How does that work for everyone? Short month, fairly short novel by King standards, so we should be able to scare ourselves shitless in just 28 days.
Also, I saw Christmas decorations up at Kohl’s today. Just had to share the exceptional wrongness of that experience. Although…if Starbucks were to bring out the Peppermint Mochas tomorrow, I wouldn’t mind. I know…I make no sense. And the more sleep I’ve had, the less sense I make!
Okay, quitting now, so I can go read more of what you all have been up to.
P.S.: If anyone on the East Coast still has power and is reading this…stay safe!!!
