Eating: // nothing yet.

Drinking: // coffee.

Listening to: // Nikka Costa’s Every Got Their Something album. I love her voice.

Reminding you all about: // Estella Society’s Owen Meany Read-along. I need to get my butt in gear and start reading. The read-along is over August 13th, so you still have plenty of time.  Also, Estella Society is hosting The Dog Days of Summer Readathon.

Now I’m off to: // read and get a cup of coffee.

What are you up to today?

  1. Well, besides reading and napping :), not a lot else. Wife is helping out with a chicken barbecue, benefit for a young firefighter who had a stroke, but is doing well. So will be having chicken later. Can’t wait.

    1. My sister’s obsessed with James Franco. Do you have any idea how often he’s talked about in our house? ;-) Lord, if I have to watch Spiderman 1-3 ever again. . . My insomnia is in hyper-drive so I get about 5 hours a sleep a day and wake up around 4:41 in the morning, every morning.

  2. I just got back from a writing retreat held out in West Texas. I’m reading lots of books about writing now and all I want to do is sit at my kitchen table and write in my notebook or type on my computer.

    A week-long readathon? Wow.

    And I must reread Owen Meany. I read it many, many years ago, on the recommendation of a friend, and it was so unexpected, so shocking, that I felt like the author had intentionally tried to hurt me. I’ve always told people that it is the book I most hate, but maybe that’s not fair.

  3. I noticed you were reading The Shining Girls, and I can’t wait to read your thoughts on it! It’s really high on my wishlist, it sounds quite different. I hope your weekend ended on a relaxing note!
