Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

Link up, link back, say hey!

1. After my comment last week about giving Elizabeth Warren a vacation it turns out that she is... sort of... or at least a book tour. And I have a ticket to go see her later next month with a friend! I'm excited. 

2. I listened to all six of the Missing Richard Simmons podcast episodes last weekend and I am legitimately saddened by what has happened to him. I'm with the narrator- I don't buy that he's just laying low. Nope. 

3. Sawyer is in a big-boy-bed now and he picked out Moana and Batman sheets. I love that kid. 

4. Most of the prints I wear are subtle and geometric, but Boden has the cutest sunglasses dress that I might have to snag... 

5. Tomorrow is our English department book club to discuss After the Parade by Lori Ostlund. Honestly, it fell a little flat for me. I thought there was way too much context, the pacing off a little, and some of the characters lacked depth. It was her first book, so I'm sure her follow-ups will be a little smoother (there is potential). It will be interesting to see what everyone else says.

6. Tomorrow is also parent-teacher conferences, which are generally exhausting but satisfying. I really appreciate it when parents come down to chat about their kids and it's nice to either see the kids get to have a moment of pride or squirm a bit. 

7. The day after is our last day before spring break! The teachers are just as anxious as the kids....


  1. Re: Richard - I kind of thought that what the manager said in the last episode (the guy who'd also seen him only the week before) about 'personas' and being done with that, and 'we don't like it but too bad, it's his life' was right. Sure, it might not be fair of Richard to suddenly withdraw but, it is his life... Anyway, a very interesting podcast. I'm stuck into S-Town now and it made me cry in the car today...

  2. Hope you have a wonderful spring break!
