Let's get caught up, shall we?
--We've lost all three goldfish in the space of a week. Rest in peace 50 Cent, Polka Dot (or Dots, I never knew for sure) and Peaches. Mysteriously, the cat that took a huge shit on top of my bed yesterday goes on living.
--I read an actual book while I was unplugged. Haven't done a lot of page turning lately and the books I have been choosing, I can't seem to finish. I picked up Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and it was just what I needed: dark, quick and entertaining.
--I've been thinking about how to work schadenfreude into a conversation. I've mastered bildungsroman and I'm ready to add to my snotty German vocab. I probably missed my best opportunity at book club last night. I had not read the book (a bildungsroman, btw) we (they) discussed and I didn't have much else to contribute. They would have undoubtedly felt schadenfreude for me if I tried it. Next time.
--I didn't entirely give up facebook for three days. I admit it: I lurked. I hate the lurkers that never have a damn thing to say and never update, but you know they're right there reading everything. Come on, people. Shit, or get off the bed, as my cat would say.
