Happy Sunday, My Charming Ones! How goes it? It goes well here. I got to eat at a (sort of) fancy pants restaurant; there wasn’t a kids’ menu! And saw Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. I have completely changed my mind about Steve Carell. I always found him annoying, probably that was characters he played, because he was soooooo SWEET in this movie. Adorable. Now I love him.
In other news, I’ve given up on A Discovery of Witches. It is not for me. They did get out of the library, finally, but then the vampire got on his bossy hat and lost me. Okay, the heroine is an academic witch and she’s 30ish(?) perhaps (I’m sure it was mentioned, everything else was), and somehow she managed to live and not accidently kill herself without him. However, once he’s trying to be her boyfriend, he’s all “You will not ride a horse the way in which you wish to ride a horse even though you know horses and how to ride them.” And she’s all, *giggles* “You’re so cute when you’re overbearing.” Nope. It was too slow, too much info dumping, and I hated that guy. Another book everybody likes but me. I’ll be hanging out at the uncool table.
That was reading time I won’t get back but I’m moving onto the next one. I’m nearly finished Cranford. That’s a slow one. Also, I’m going to be reading Les Miserables with my book club. I ordered it this week. I hope my mailman doesn’t have a back problem and if he doesn’t he might get one delivering the 1200 page tome.
It’s Canada Day next weekend (July 1)! Here’s to beer! And donuts! I made a special Pinterest board for all my Canada Day finds. I’ll be adding to it throughout the week.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
