The Not-Boring Stuff

I thought that when I got back from New York, my life would be boring and uneventful. And maybe it is a little boring and uneventful, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have stuff to do. It’s just boring, uneventful stuff. Mostly.

Here’s the not-boring stuff I’ve been up to:

What I Wrote

I did a manicure, and it turned out about like you’d expect.

On Teh Internets

Remember when CraftFail.com featured my strawberry asscakes v 2.0 on their NAILED IT section? Well, shortly after that, they asked me to be a regular guest poster on the blog. Um, squeee! So my first guest post evar is up there, on making a paloma.

What I Read

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James – Um, I’m not sure what to say about this one. I liked it. The sex was hot. The hero was hot. I think that the reason that this book is so popular is that it taps into something important about people in general, that being that we want to be loved and taken care of. Anyway, good read. Not classic literature or anything, but it doesn’t have to be in order to be enjoyable. (If you want my full review with spoilers, look on GoodReads.)

What I Watched

Religulous – Don’t bother. Bill Maher is a buttface.

Swordfish – An oldie but a goodie. There’s much to love in this movie, not the least of which is watching Hugh Jackman try to be a hacker. I am not convinced, but I guess the kind of hacker I envision (fat, pasty, smells like cheese, snorts when he laughs) wouldn’t make a good movie hero.

Freejack – Completely stupid, but kind of fun.

The Bachelorette – Holy freakshow. The guy with the egg just makes me stare, all googly-eyed, because I don’t know what to do with that information. Also, I’m pretty convinced that our dear bachelorette will be able to eventually find something wrong with all of these guys because they are not her dead fiance. I dunno. Maybe the football player has a chance.

Other Crap

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 TwitterGoogle+, and Pinterest.

    I haven’t watched Bachelorette yet this season but I do so adore that cheeseball crap show. I try to pick out the most normal person and feel sorry for him/her that some fundamental need for attention drove them to be on this show seeking “a connection” with another wannabe celeb. And I like the silly dates.
    I have wondered about Fifty Shades but not having enjoyed the previous book I read featurning bondage I am reluctant….

      Lora, without giving too much away, I would say Grey is “bondage lite”… although I have romance writer friends who write serious BDSM stuff, so I may be a little jaded here. Anyway, I’d say it’s on the lighter end of the spectrum as far as that goes. More… um… vanilla than not. (I sound so worldly, right?)
