So Mixtape Monday was a bust. I was nuts to think I could do one every week. It’s probably going to end up something like Mixtape Every Other Monday.
My review of Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins is up! I had fun writing this one. Thoroughly enjoyable book, plus, I had great memories to go with it. I read it during a Ye Olde Towne Band concert in Shoup Park. We picnicked on a delicious sandwiches from Whole Foods and lounged in beach chairs and on blankets.
Last Friday – Kshiti hosted an awesome get-together for the fiction writers (and two poets). Highlight: churro cake with chocolate cinnamon pudding icing, which actually tops the birthday butterbeer cake. Now I’m hungry. Also, there were leftover ingredients, so SUPPOSEDLY our workshop might get churro cupcakes this Wednesday. Fingerscrossed!
I love this new cold weather. It only lasted three days, but I think/hope that it’s cut the legs out from under this humidity. Got to wear leggings today.
Borrowed Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, Volume 1 from Jesse. Am excited to read this! Also borrowed Magic For Beginners from Carlea! Switching between this book and Pretty Monsters. I also made my class read “The Faery Handbag.” Maybe I get a little bit of a rush choosing stories for the syllabus. Not a mad, power-hungry rush. But like a benevolent, HA! rush. Maybe there’s no difference. Ok, also I like sharing favorite stories.
