Lazy Sunday Thoughts Are a Little Chilly

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Brr! It’s a bit fresh out there! Finally feels like fall, which is nice since October starts this week.

Anyone going to watch the Blood Moon eclipse tonight? I’m going to try my night photography skills on the moon. I hope I get some non-blurry shots.

I’m almost done The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood which is one of the weirdest books I read this year. I don’t know what to make of it.

I have a review scheduled for Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling, the audiobook. Yay!

Monkalong is this Thursday! I’ve read my chapters. Have you?


Thought I’d share some interesting links I read this week:

So, Ryan Adams covered Taylor Swift’s 1989 and music critics somehow managed to simultaneously praise Adams and insult Swift. Anna Leszkiewicz gathers the worst offenders in her article The Mansplaining of Taylor Swift. Swift’s songs, which she actually wrote, are only any good if some dude sings them. I’m not a Swift Superfan, but I think she’s doing well for herself and these criticisms are both sexist and patronizing. Oh and I listened to Adams’s version and I was bored.

This is too real: How to Stock an Independent Bookstore. You’ll find the books at the back of my local chain bookstore.

In medieval Poland there was a connection between cholera and “vampires,” via Strange Company (lots of interesting links there).

I thought this video from Skit Box was really funny. Sometimes I put on some yoga pants and fluffy socks and call it a day.

  1. I love the mittens in that photo!

    I'm kind of over the active wear look so I love the video!

  2. I do SO much want to see the Supermoon Eclipse, but I'm not sure the weather is going to cooperate. It's been a very rainy day, and although it's stopped raining, it's still very overcast. Sigh.

    The Adams/Swift article is interesting. I hate that this reaction has been happening to the album, because I wanted to be able to enjoy it uncomplicatedly. I like the Taylor Swift album! I love that Adams liked it so much he wanted to cover all the songs on it! I like the covers of the songs! SHUT UP PATRIARCHY YOU ARE HARSHING MY BUZZ.

    1. Yeah, Adams genuinely likes her work. It's an homage! But those dudes have to ruin everything.

  3. I am looking at the moon right now. From my three-season patio, where the TV is, I don't even have to go outside to watch it. This makes me very excited. I am a sucker for astrological phenomenon.

    Wait. You mean it is wrong to wear active wear and do nothing? Well, crap! There goes my entire weekend wardrobe!

    Have a great week! I seriously love this cooler weather!

    1. Activewear is so comfy, why not wear it for doing nothing? Right? The moon was amazing. I'm glad the weather cooperated for once.

  5. I so wish we'd be cool enough for mittens. It is still in the 100s and when it does cool down, it won't ever be cool enough for mittens. It's been years since it's been cool, like, winter cool.

    1. We need to combine our weather for the perfect conditions!
