PaperbackSwap has got to be the deadliest frackin' web site ever invented. I get in more trouble over there when it comes to scrounging up out-of-print books. KristieJ damn near killed me during the Great Western Drive, and now I have Leslie and Lori to blame for their recent reviews of the old Karen Ranney historical, Tapestry. I have heard of this book before, but I must have tuned out the fact that it was a Beauty And The Beast-style plot, or else it would have landed in my TBR years ago. Lori warned in her review that jaded souls might not enjoy it as much, but dang, I can't say no to Beauty And The Beast. So yeah, I requested a copy.
Seriously. I need help.
I work on a flex schedule, which means I put in longer days, in order to have every other Friday off. Now that Daylight Savings Time has hit, it's still light out when I get home, which means My Man and I are back on our walking jag. We've been walking around two miles a day, and I've started to incorporate some light weights into the work-out. I'm starting to see some very minor results, and hope by this summer that the very long days will have paid off.
The problem is that I've been dog-ass tired for the past couple of days. After a 10 hour work day (my lunch, she is unpaid), then the commute home (in So. Cal. traffic thankyouverymuch), then a 2+ mile walk (with weights), then dinner, then a shower, then maybe an hour or two to unwind before bedtime - well, I'm drained. I think my poor internal clock is still trying to adjust.
Hopefully after another week I'll be used to the new schedule.
Is anyone else watching the new TV show, Justified? As a native Michigander, it's practically my civic duty to at least give it a shot, since the show is based on an Elmore Leonard character. My verdict so far? It's pretty good. I'm not madly in love with it (yet), but it's certainly watchable, and let's face it - there's an inordinate amount of crap on TV these days. Anything halfway decent looking, that's not a "reality" show about some couple who only got a TV deal because they have 467 children, gets at least a passing glance from yours truly.
Plus, I'll admit it, I'm shallow. Timothy Olyphant in a cowboy hat flips my switch.
