...that's the intent anyway.
First off the family computer is in the shop. Which means I have had to dig DEEP and find it in me to share my laptop with the family. I'm sorry to say I'm not that gracious about it. Shame on me. I'm a bad example for my children, teaching them to be stingy and grumpy when it comes to sharing.
In my defense, have you seen what the little buggers do to computers?
Oh, and I think the last thunderstorm we had knocked out my wireless router. I only get internet if I plug the stinking cable into the laptop. Works fine for now, but once the other one comes back I STILL won't be able to get on the internet until after they're in bed. So my blog reading has been slashed and burned...dramatically. I'm bummed I haven't been able to make it around since last week.
See? Sad face :(
Technical difficulties partially account for my absence, but THIS puppy is responsible for the rest:
I picked it up this weekend and couldn't put the damn thing down. I stayed up until TWO even though I had to get up at 6. I kept telling myself I'd just finish the chapter, but then I'd slip into the next one and the one after that and the next thing I know its 2.
This book is the reason why I wore all black today...easy, comfy clothes I didn't have to think about -- because I wandered around the house this morning trying to finish it while getting kids off to school and I didn't want to waste a single minute on something as mundane as clothes! Hell, the world should be glad I bothered to get dressed at all.
It's the reason I came home at lunch so I could finish the damn thing and get it out of my system. My daughter had the nerve to make me LEAVE this morning right at the climax. Ohhhh, it was excruciating putting it down.
Everyone else and their dog is doing a *real* review, so I'll just say I loved it. I always thought I was anti-bad boy, but I'm being forced to reconsider. First Reth in Paranormalcy and now Luc. I think I've been tagged for the dark side, y'all.
That's it for today. I'm tired and grumpy. MY laptop is acting strange now (probably protesting from whatever the children did to it while I was at work and unable to protect it), and now I'm knee deep in this one:
yeah...might be another late night, dammit.
