I have been meaning to do this for THREE DAYS now, but I haven't gotten around to it, (or a round tuit, either). Life hasn't been in the way at all, in fact, I'm actually busier today than I have been all week, but the stuff inside my head decided that it's ready to come out, and so who am I to argue?
So.. Sunday I bought "The Red Tree" by Caitlin R. Kiernan... Began reading it about, hmm, let's say 11 Monday morning... Got two pages in, and realized I had to stop... Not because I didn't like it, but because I figured out I needed to get my dailies done ASAP so I could dedicate the rest of my day to finishing it without being required to stop, for anything. And except for a meeting I couldn't avoid, that's exactly what I did. I actually cooked two meals while still reading it. Multitasking for the win! (Eh, pretend I didn't just say that.) The last book I was that into was the Encyclopedia of Serial Killers, Third Edition... Which took a mere 36 hours to read cover to cover. Also something that really shouldn't be asked about, because no matter what I say about it, it's gonna make me sound creepy... Or creepier, depending on how well one knows me. So... Yeah. Book was awesome, by the way, in every meaning of that word. Reading it again as soon as I have the time. Maybe it'll be my birthday present to me.
Anyway, as soon as I finished it, went to sleep... Which yeah, turned out to be not the greatest idea I've ever had... Really bizarre dreams for most of the night. More bizarre than my usual, actually, and I dream some pretty weird shit. Nothing I really remember, now, except for vauge images of underground cathedrals and people wearing pig masks seemingly celebrating Bacchanalia... Hmm, then again, that isn't that unusual for me. Except for the pig masks. Pigs are creepy. And delicious.
Tuesday... Nothing happened. Stayed home, worked on some jewelry projects, did some introspection, reflected some more on my current beta reading project... Fought with Mother on who was the true grammar nazi of the family, which unfortunately, she won. Oh, and she asked if she could read "The Red Tree" since I was done, and she thought the cover looked interesting... And I said sure... But then I proceeded to inform her that there was "girl on girl lovin' " within... Exactly how I put it, too. I try to keep my language a bit cleaner around my folks out of respect. Her response was "OH." and she set the book down and backed away, as if she could catch something from holding it. Made me giggle for a bit.
I now somewhat wish I hadn't warned her, as one of my favorite pastimes is freaking my mom the fuck out. And knowing when she hit the first "scene," she'd flush, shut the book, set it down, and try and blank her mind. Which would've been really funny to see... But then she'd probably be pissed at me... And since I currently live rent-free in her house, that makes it less worth it.
Tonight, a good friend of mine is cooking me dinner, and I'm stoked for it. Nobody's cooked for me in a long time, cooked well for me in even more time than that. And while I really enjoy cooking, it's nice to have someone else do it for you.
Tomorrow, Thursday, is the 28th anniversary of my birth. Which is fine, but I'm really not that into birthdays anymore... So I'm glad I'm just doing my usual Thursday things. I was born on a Thursday... Thursday's child has far to go, or so the nursery rhyme says. Guess that's true enough of me.
Well, I feel I've typed enough for today... Got things to do n ow, anyway, so I should probably get started.
Oh and evidently it's Geek Day, so happy.. that.
