It’s Friday! Bang the drums!
After a long, but productive week, I am ready to do a little R&R over the weekend!
Five Things Friday
1. I’m reading and reading and reading away at Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell for my book club that meets next week on Tuesday, and I’m only on page 208 of 503!!!! I’m really getting into it now; not John Green/dystopian/YA love drama “into it,” but considering that there were MANY times that I thought I was going to just completely skip the book and hope my book clubbers would be distracted by my wit and charm, not that bad! I’m not sure how I’m going to proceed because I KNOW that I won’t be able to finish it before book club.
Let me know!
2. We have a friend coming into town for the weekend. He’s one of Dan’s friends from The Era That Shall Not Be Remembered – AKA before me met me. Actually, Chris and Dan taught together at the school where Dan and I met 5 years ago. Chris is a huge New York Jets fan and they’re playing against the Jaguars this Sunday, so what else would be a better excuse to come visit your Floridian friends? I’m not necessarily a fan of either team, but let’s hope that we see some good football!
3. I absolutely have been LOVING this season of American Horror Story! Last year, I insisted that Dan and I only watch our DVR’d episodes when the sun was still up because otherwise I would become so stressed and creeped out that I couldn’t fall asleep. This year, I’ve been ok up until this week’s episode. The opening scenes featured a brutal shooting of a bell-ringing, red bucket wielding Santa Claus. The absolute CREEPER of a man that shot the faux Santa then broke into a neighboring house PRETENDING TO BE SANTA! and had one of the most disturbing hostage scenes I’ve seen in quite some time. I HAD to have Dan turn it off. I just couldn’t sit in my living room that’s filled with holiday decorations, twinkle lights, and watch as a family be terrorized. Hopefully the rest of the episode will not be like that, but I just couldn’t take it. If you’re not a fan of the show, please don’t let my mini fit stop you from watching, but don’t take my word for it: 13 Reasons Why American Horror Story Doesn’t Suck This Season.
4. Girls Night tonight!
5. With all the stuff that I gotta do about #1-4, I don’t have time for a fifth thing! Enjoy the weekend!
