Since I don't have a desk job at all anymore it's been difficult to remember to post everyday, but I promise I'm not deserting you! If you want to know what I've been up to, I shall tell you: I'm reading a book. No, seriously, that's mostly what I've been doing. I bought Little Bee by Chris Cleave on Tuesday and have not been able to put it down since. I only stopped reading to write this because I don't actually want the book to end yet. I go through phases where I just cannot find anything to read that I enjoy, and then I'll pick up a book like this and my faith is restored. Sometimes I really wish that I could just go and live on an island and just read...forever.
Back in the real world, I cannot deal with So You Think You Can Dance right now...I've obviously been watching every episode (and it's on right now), because there's nothing to make you feel fat, old and useless than watching people do things that you used to be able to do (just kidding, I can totally kick my leg up over my head, still....although, it's usually not worth the resulting pain. Usually). However, I'm going to just up and hit a bitch if they rip out emotional information from these poor contestants anymore. I DO feel bad that your dad died/brother is sick/dog committed suicide/goldfish's fin is broken, I feel terrible and that is awful, however, why are we capitalizing on their hurt for the sake of "drama" on tv? I don't care if there's "drama" on SYTYCD, I just care if there's good dancing. Oh NO, they did NOT...there's a rib commercial with a pig angel who hands a man a plate of ribs and watches him eat them? That done made me a vegetarian. Pathetic.
Does anyone have any suggestions for any of the following?:
- Beaches that are easily accessible from NYC
- Ways to not go stir crazy in the city in the summer
- A good tv series to watch on dvd/netflix/hulu
- Beach books
Alright, operation "I'M STARVING" continues now with my lettuce and beet salad dinner and watermelon dessert...it does sound good, though, doesn't it?
