So how was your weekend? Our weather did a 180 and when we went out for dinner last night to belatedly celebrate The Only and Baseball Boy’s anniversary, we didn’t even wear jackets. Crazy. But this is Oklahoma. Our weather is always bizarre. Saturday, Lawyer Guy decided to run errands with me after lunch and we ended up in Office Depot. OD is the Place of Evil for me. Shinies. Everywhere. I didn’t escape unscathed. I found a new desk chair. Not that I wasn’t in desperate need of a new chair or anything. The old one was ten. And two rollers didn’t roll anymore (dog hair clogs that not even needlenose pliers could remove) plus the fact that both arm rest pads were held together with camouflage duct tape. I won’t even discuss the padding on the seat. Anyway, early birthday present to me so YAY!
I also read. A lot. I finished Anne Bishop’s WRITTEN IN RED (more about it in Wednesday’s Words), then started and finished Cecy Robson’s latest release in her Weird Girls series, CURSED BY DESTINY. The last book in this series left me both pissed and heartbroken. I know, it’s a weird combination. I laughed more reading CURSED. Oh, don’t get me wrong, there was lots an angst, action, and arrogance–on the part of the alpha characters. I’m currently reading an older anthology, FOUR DUKES AND A DEVIL with shorts by Cathy Maxwell, Elaine Fox, Jeaniene Frost, Sophia Nash, and Tracy Ann Warren. It’s not bad. A quick read.
Have I mentioned my massive TBR pile? I have 89 paper books (and more coming when they’re released) and probably that many unread on my Kindle. In order to clear space, I’m reading one Kindle book followed by one paper. That way, I clear those shelves and can either send books to the local VA hospital for their volunteer library or I can do giveaways here and on Facebook. 😀 Anyway, RED was a library book, CURSED was digital, and the anthology is paper. So far, so good. I guess that’s another resolution I made. 😀
Curious about the shows I DVR’d? Of course you are! 😉 First, KILLER WOMEN, a new series on ABC. It’s about a female Texas Ranger and runs 8 weeks. I like Molly Parker (the character played in kick-ass glory by Tricia Helfer) and her sexy DEA FWB, Dan Winston (played by Marc Blucas). The reviewers don’t like it. Which means I enjoyed the hell out of it. 😉 The other new show I wanted to see is CBS’s INTELLIGENCE, with Josh Holloway. It’s different. It got rave reviews. Based on the premieres, I’m more likely to keep watching KW than INTEL. We’ll see what happens next week.
So what did y’all do this weekend? Fun stuff? Lazy stuff? Good stuff? Let’s talk about the stuff today! *pours a cup of coffee and settles in to visit*
