just finished - Sleeping with the Entity
just starting - The Entity Within
i wasn't sure at first if i liked Cat Devon's writing style with the first book. it seemed a little ... well, a little bit how i write. it felt conversational, which is what i enjoy reading in blogs & whatnot, but i very rarely see it used in the books i read. it only took me a couple chapters to get into the swing of things & then suddenly, i was LOVING it! the conversational tone made me feel like i was reading about something that was really happening - which, since this is a book about a vampire community is saying something. vampires are firmly in that fantasy setting. but i really enjoyed the dialogue & tone, and the story was quite wonderful!
the story also made me crave cupcakes and vampires. *laugh*
so, other than the story, today was odd. had to take bret to an appointment, so i took a few hours of vacation. actually got up around the time i normally do - i guess 1/2 an hour later. stopped at the bux & then picked bret up. took him to his appointment & then came home to read for 1/2 an hour or so til he called that he was done. that was faster than i'd expected, but it worked out perfectly! i got to work about 15 minutes before a meeting i'd forgotten about! *laugh* the meeting went well - we have a cute boy on our activities committee who i really enjoy. i would like to get to know him better, but i don't see him a lot, and i already know he's only here for a short time (he's doing a development program rotation thingy - idk the details, but i know it means he's not sticking around in my building for very long!). so, much as with mr crushtastic, i just enjoy it when i get to see him & try not to spill things on myself. LOL
the rest of the day was busy (email! timecards!) but i was just DONE with the day after lunch. heh. it's so hard to focus when your brain says it's done. ya know? i made it through, thankfully, and then on the way home FFDP's Lift Me Up was played & i really can't wait for the new album to come out! : )
nicki had to reschedule dinner tonight, so my plan had been to head over to mom's to hang out w/ her & leyton after work, but they ended up going to the zoo, so i just came home & finished my book. i'll head over there in a bit to watch some big brother. and hopefully leyton will be over there this weekend so we can hang out! altho, we are taking that trip to mason next weekend, so we'll have auntie-nephew time then. : ) hooray! (this also has reminded me i need to make the reservation for the hotel...)
happy tomorrow is friday, looking forward to bub & alex's wedding on saturday, and being home to veg on sunday.
i am still working on my menu post from porkapalooza, so hopefully i'll be able to get that up this weekend, as well!
ttfn! : )
