So far this year....
On my nightstand:
Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I haven't read it yet, but it's next on the list. My Kindle, which holds the book I'm reading now, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.
Want to read:
Once I finish the two books mentioned above, the third book in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series. Then Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Will Grayson, Will Grayson and while we're at it, An Abundance of Katherines.
T.V. show worth watching:
Ha, very funny.
Movie I've seen (in or out of theater):
In my ears:
The trailer theme for the video game Deus Ex: The Human Revolution (the song's called "Icarus," look it up).
Items of note:
Here, let me show you.
Tesla prefers drinking out of my cups instead of the ample water supply he has next to his food bowl. Notice the piles of books and papers around me - I spent the weeks before the semester started grading school papers and recording those grades.
Melody had a birthday party; she turned eight on December 29th, but with the baby arriving only two days before, celebrations were pushed into January.
Grandpa Joe and Grandma Sharon came for a few days. The kids all enjoyed seeing them again.
All of Houston panicked, because the weatherman announced a "wintry mix" to be expected Thursday and Friday. To us southerners who shiver and crank up the heat at 60 F, those two words were synonymous with "ice age" and "we're probably going to be snowed in." Classes at my university shut down for Thursday afternoon and Friday. Sadly, we got no snow. None. On the bright side, I slept in til 9 today.
What I'm looking forward to this month:
My first physics and calculus test of the semester. Sounds weird, right? But it'll be nice to see where I stand in both classes and figure out if I need to change my approach any. Possible sunshine and warmth dispelling the freezing cold. Adventure, perhaps.
