Disclaimer: Today’s post will be scatter brained and a little bit all over the place, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. Here goes.
I absolutely love reading a book and knowing that it won’t take me forever to get through it. If you recall it took me quite a while to finish Wicked and it was so completely frustrating. As much as I ended up loving the book overall, it dragged on in places and I wasn’t as captivated as I’ve experienced with other books which was a little disheartening. However, do not fear. My faith in books and fantastic authors has definitely been revitalized. On Monday I started reading Khaled Hosseini’s latest novel A Thousand Splendid Suns. Now I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before or not, but Kite Runner is one of my favorite books ever. I couldn’t put that book down. Although it covered tough subjects and was in no way an “easy read” I just remember while reading it, it was all I thought about. I thought about the characters when I wasn’t reading it and wondering what was going to happen next, and that’s what I love about reading. So of course I was so excited when the same thing happened on Monday when I started reading his new novel. He builds characters so passionately and intricately that I can’t help but to wonder about them and grow attached within a matter of pages. So needless to say I am beyond excited to read this book and can’t wait to see what happens next.
Why do I smell cheese right now? No really. Where is that coming from. Don’t tease me cheese gods.
Ah! Hello Keanu. You shaved, I love it. Where have you been hiding lately? Don’t you have a bad movie to promote soon? Speaking of which, as much as I heart you and see all your films this movie just looks beyond bad. And I really don’t know if I can watch you play another cop that isn’t named Jack Traven, because let’s be honest here, that was your best role ever. However, thanks to the wonders of gift certificates I may end up seeing it and not feeling thaaaaat guilty.

Speaking of celebrity babies, my girl Halle had her baby girl on Sunday and the name was released yesterday. Nahla Ariela Aubry. Um. Is she a Disney fan? Because really the name is like Lion King and Little Mermaid put together. Or as other people have speculated, Ariela sounds a lot like Areola which is a part of the boob…umm, Halle didn’t you think about this? I had such high hopes for your child. Oh well. What she lacks in a name will be made up in cuteness I presume.
Last night I dreamed about Ace of Cakes. I had to serve cake to thousands of people, good god it was tedious, especially since it was such a difficult cake to cut in the first place. And there was a guy dressed as a tin man who kept coming back for seconds and thirds and I had to swat him away with a spatula, what the hell? Who dreams about that?
It’s Wednesday, which means two things: spinning and America’s Next Top Model. Fierce!
