Ok, I haven’t EXACTLY been all around the world this week, but I did go to Salt Lake City for Adobe Summit. And now I am tired.
Here’s what’s been happening in my life other than that:
What I Wrote
I bought an earring. My ear did not approve.
I made sunburned pork chops. Yeah, I don’t know either.
I had another hair fail. And also a rather inadvertent sweater fail. And I don’t care. I still like that sweater, and I’m going to wear it, damn it.
I made a really ugly tote bag with an anus. (If you don’t click that, I don’t know what’s wrong with you, for really real.)
I posted a 7-line excerpt of my current Work In Progress up on my Facebook page. Yeah, I could only work up the energy for 7 lines. Sorry.
On Teh Internets
Also, I am featured in this video, bumping Strephon’s cheek. Dirrrrty.
What I Read
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins. Enjoyed continuing the story from Hunger Games, but I thought the first book was more engaging and entertaining.
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins. A few people mentioned to me that they had a problem with the pace of this book, like it wrapped up too fast, but I didn’t think it did. I think maybe what’s going on is that this is such a sweeping story with huge implications way into the future that the story ended without a real, solid, everything-is-wrapped-up END. I think that’s how it had to be, though, in order to tell the story. I liked the series as a whole, but it was a little dark for my tastes, and not as uplifting as I was hoping it would be. Still, great story-telling and a wonderful, unique idea.
And, no, I haven’t seen the movie yet.
If you want to keep up with me on a minute by minute basis and just can’t wait to find out what the next piece of gray matter I toss up on the Internets will be, you can follow me on Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest.
