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.
This is my rock and roll love letter to you.
