Finished it!

Over the weekend I finished Around the World in 80 Dates by Jennifer Cox. I found it while browsing through the new area at the library. I thought it would be a light summer read but it wasn't that. I could have sworn I already wrote about this in my LJ but I can't find any entry for it. I must have written about it elsewhere. The best dates were centered around some (cultural) activity.

I started reading Kings of Infinite Space by James Hynes. Apparently he's written about the main character, Paul, in one of his other books. My husband somehow heard of this one and decided to pick it up for me. The last 10 - 15 pages had one of the most exciting climaxes I've read in a long time. I couldn't set the book down at all. The final sentence made me laugh out loud. Fortunately, I was in my car in Skyline's parking lot at the time so I didn't get any weird looks from anyone. Some have described the book as Office Space meets Stephen King with a twist of satire. That sounds good to me. :)

I made a roast tonight. It smells so yummy! I hope it tastes as good as it smells. I didn't put the redskin potatos in at the same time (shame on me) so I have to wait before I can eat. My husband is still at work and should be back in the next 30 - 45 minutes. I hope I don't die from an overabundance of good smells between now and then.

Yesterday I brought to work the Kelly Clarkson CD, Breakaway. It's the first time in I can't remember how long that I've sat down at work with a CD, headphones, and just jammed away. I realized that I type so much faster when I am listening to music and blocking other people out. It was amazing the amount of work I was able to get done.

If you're feeling down today, I think you should go visit Zippy!
