Well, the weather broke.
After enjoying an absolutely beautiful week of balmy, breezy days, solid gold sunshine, and temperatures hovering about the twenty degree mark, we’re officially back to the drizzle.
Dressing myself for work this morning I had to gird my loins, knowing full well that in order to get out the door I would have to face the ever-dreaded “turtle neck and pair of tights” combination.
So sure was I last week that I had seen the last of this much worn duo: “Until (at the very least) next September!” I had cockily crowed to Marc.
Even the thick mist and rain spackled streets can’t do much to temper my mood.
Because dudes I am feeling pretty darn good.
Today I kicked some major butt at work, and now I’m off to do a show tonight at a new room (for me) with a bunch of very funny, and very rad comedians.
Also, this Wednesday I have my first show at YukYuks, which makes me feel all squiggly and nervous, but also very, very happy.
This past weekend I bought a ridiculously cute dress for my sister’s wedding (they had to order my size, so as soon as I get it home I will take a photo!), and last night I made homemade pizza for dinner, and tonight fresh pasta with homemade sauce.
Friday is normally the day that I save for a fry-up, but to mix things up a bit, let me please present you with – the Monday Mash-up.
You can’t fight it, it’s science.
I have a crush on Carl Sagan.
He is my imaginary dead boyfriend.
Is that weird?
Whatever, he was a hot piece with a fab brain.
I just wish that he was still alive to keep doing his mad-genius thing, helping young people the world over get jazzed about space. The future of Canada’s space program is currently up in the air, and I just believe that if our government gave more weight to bright, brilliant, and brave scientists (such as Mr. Sagan) we wouldn’t be facing this situation.
I may just have to go back to uni and take on a whole new career path.
Put on the kettle.
LOOK AT THESE MUGS I BOUGHT:
I cannot even being to tell you how happy they make me.
I mean, they are a perfect combination of three of my most favourite things: hot drinks, cursive writing, and my love.
After lamenting my reading drought, I have been back at the books fast and furious.
The first book I read was Black Snow by Bulgakov. He is one of my all-time favourites, and if you get a chance be sure to check him out. His magical realism will blow your mind, and he shines a light on the absurdities of 20th century Russian society like no other.
Next I re-read The Infinite Wait, a graphic novel by Julia Wertz. Terrific all around. Funny, moving, inspiring – this woman is a gem.
Finally, I just finishing Faithful Place by Tana French.
THIS WOMAN IS AMAZING. One of the best mystery writers I have ever read (and I have read my GIANT share of mysteries.) Plus I am always amazed when anybody can write well from the opposite sex’s perspective, and Ms. French does it absolutely perfectly.
Ch-ch-check it out.
So there you have it folks.
What are you reading these days? What did you get up for the weekend?
Let me know all about it.
