Another day is upon us and that can only mean one thing — Nashville is one day closer! If you’ve been reading this, you know how excited I’ve been about this trip. I haven’t seen my brother or his family since February 1st and it feels like an eternity.
Currently reading Tina Fey’s “Bossypants.” So far, it’s been really funny. She’s one of my favorite comedians anyway, but this — for some reason — has been a pleasant surprise. She’s blended autobiographical writing with comedy very well. Well, from the first 100-plus pages I’ve read so far, anyway. Speaking of reading materials, I purchased Jessica Anya Blau’s first book, “The Summer of Naked Swim Parties,” for 99 cents. Yep, 99 cents as a digital book. Once I finish “Bossypants,” I will dive right into “Summer.” Oh, and I re-upped my subscription to The Nervous Breakdown’s book club. Apparently, when you sign up, it’s only a 12-month subscription. Since I was paid through July, I re-upped again now in August =). While many of the books on there aren’t something I would normally read, and I still haven’t read most of the titles, there have been some very good ones; Emma Donoghue’s “Room” and Jessica Anya Blau’s “Drinking Closer to Home” come to mind.
Tonight, my inaugural foray into trivia begins. I’ve been wanting to do trivia for quite some time now, and, finally, I got a group of friends interested and we’re headed out to compete. This should be interesting, if only because I am kind of skeptical about two of the four that I am joining. They seem to be wild cards as it could go either way — either successful, or myself and the other two will pick up the slack big time. Time will only tell.
I couldn’t survive without my Twitter feed during the day. Well, maybe. Actually, no. Not even maybe. I read everything that comes through. Mind you, I am not saying I click on every link that comes through, but I do read every tweet that accompanies it. If the tweet sounds interesting enough, I will then click on the link. Yesterday, at one point, I had five separate tabs open for links on stories I was going to read because of my Twitter feed. I feel lost without it sometimes. And, it certainly helps me get through the morning. That, and blogging. Yes, the blogging.
That’s about it.
Catch you on the flip side.
