Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

1. Today my students had a Scrabble and Cereal party to celebrate their senior check out day tomorrow. A lot of kids mix different types of cereal- I don't think I can get on board with that. 

2. So, I was chosen to have lunch with Gaily Honeyman, author of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine next month. I'm mostly excited, although I am never as articulate in person, so I will probably say something stupid. But it's definitely a cool opportunity (they don't know I blog, it's unrelated to this). I am going to a Michael Chabon reading the following night, so it will be 48 hours of literary goodness.

3. Sunday we are going to Knott's Berry Farm with my mother-in-law and then Monday I am chaperoning the senior trip to Disneyland. I will be theme-parked out by Tuesday! 

4. Over the weekend I went to The Hollywood Bowl to see their Beauty and the Beast production with a friend and her friends, and it was so awesome. They had the movie showing on large screens and then had stars like Taye Diggs and Zooey Deschanel sing on stage. It was such a fun night.

5. I also took two naps this weekend, since mama stayed out way too late, which is incredibly out of character for me.

6. Chomsky is definitely starting to get lonely without Cordie, I think, as he has been more clingy lately and has had two accidents in the house, which is unheard of (and thankfully on the tile, since DAMN he has a large bladder). I am definitely on team #nopuppyrightnow, since I can barely take care of everything as is. I do feel bad for him, and am trying to walk him more. The real problem is that he has RSF (resting sad face) as is, so it's sort of hard to tell where he's at.

7. We started the new season of Arrested Development, which is... okay. I love that it's only a half hour, so I can actually watch an episode on a work night, but I don't feel as much love for the original season at this point. 


  1. Sounds like a neat party. A senior trip to Disneyland. How awesome! Naps are good. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

  2. Poor Chomsky. Stuff like that is always hard, and dogs grieve fiercely. Just love him extra and he'll perk up in time. My bookish thoughts:

  3. Ah, I feel sorry for Chomsky, but my reasons for not having a dog are reinforced. LOL. They require a lot of attention!

    Enjoy the Theme Park week...and naps are sometimes necessary. Here are MY BOOKISH/NOT SO BOOKISH THOUGHTS
