Bleeeccccch. I am not sick, I am just still hacking up smoke from when we sang karaoke on Wednesday night. But I'm still riding high on life because I finally got to sing my favorite song in the entire world that night, Close to Me by the Cure. I might just sing it every single time we go to karaoke. It's worth all the hacking.
I am on disc 7 of 9 in this "Forever Fifteen" audiobook, and there has yet to be some sort of actual plot. The entire however-many-hours-I've-listened have been back story. All of it. Nothing has actually happened except for the vampire girl is dating a boy at her school. Hooray. How exciting. Danny, I swear I'm going to make you pay for this. Something really, really, really cool had better happen at the end or I will hunt you down in Ann Arbor and ... I don't know. Do something you won't like. Grr.
I'm almost finished with "Under the Tuscan Sun". I'm pretty sure I started it back in January. It really began well, and I was excited about it, but then it just sort of fizzled and became more of a chore than anything else. I think the reasoning is much the same as the last story I was just talking about -- it's all back story, no plot. Nothing is happening. There is a lot of description, albeit beautiful description, but there's no real point to the story. Sadly, this is one of the few times I prefer the movie over the book. But I have only a chapter left, I believe, so I'm going to go throw myself into a hot bubble bath (which my little sister claims solves most of life's problems, and I tend to agree with her) and finish the story if it kills me. Which it won't, unless it falls on my neck and I get a nasty paper cut and bleed out before anyone notices I'm still in the tub after four hours, and this imagination is what I get from being raised on horror movies.
Tonight we'll be watching Zombieland and 2012 on Blu-Ray and I'm mostly excited about Zombieland. It seems right up my alley. We might even get a couple of pizzas and some pop and just stay up all night. Well, not all night. We're pretty old.
The house is nice and quiet right now. I'd better go get in the tub before I jinx it........
