And nice of OITNB to lower the participation expectations and provide what will surely be a gaggle of applicable GIFs (I'm still searching for an "Everybody dies" GIF. From the third or fourth episode of season 2? When Piper's taking back all her stuff? So versatile, in this GRRM world.)
The minithon was extra mini today. I read 68 pages (oof) from two books I'm re-reading (The Shining [even better than I remember] and Bridget Jones' Diary [more problematic than I remember, but still funny]). I did take a picture of my mini-puffs and mini-pop, though:
|Note Orange is the New Black in the background|
and understand the previously mentioned
So, how about some lifey updates, seeing as we haven't got much in the way of books to talk about?
Winter here was rough, mood- and weather-wise. I haven't really been reading, and I certainly haven't been blogging. I'm missed both things, but mainly I've missed you guys. So that's something I'll be working on doing more of: checking in with you all more regularly.
My role at the environmental consulting company I work for has changed from copy editor + receptionist to copy editor, full stop. IT'S THE BEST and I like it very much.
I volunteered backstage with the local theatre group at the musical they put on in April, and it gave me infinitely more hope in terms of being happy here in the semi-North. Will definitely be auditioning when they get their new season going.
Neil and I are buying a house!
Look how crappy and tiny it is! I love it with my whole heart.
What will happen
I don't want to set myself up for failure and say I'll post once a week, but I'd certainly like to engage more often with you lot. I like your faces, you see.
Neil and I take possession of the house (tentatively dubbed Shack von Wittgenstein) in July, and we'll have to work out what our decorating scheme will be. He doesn't care, so I'm thinking white walls with many manner of interesting things on them (like every actual item from this guy's shop). And random, ultra-colourful furniture. Yes, good. Also, you know, we have to replace the 20-year-old water heater but details.
And that's the haps, as they stand. Now to fend off the Sunday blues with more OITNB and laundry folding.
