 so with the abandonment of my 30 days of me! game, I guess I can get back to my random posting of nothing and my weekly updates. 

Monday. hm. I haven't been doing anything substantial lately because I've been so engrossed in this new book series, The Sookie Stackhouse novels, also called the Southern Vampire Mysteries. my mother bought me the boxed set of seven two christmas' ago. two more have come out since then, and there's one scheduled to come out in May, so that makes ten books so far. I'm four chapters into the ninth at the moment.

these books are good. I don't love Sookie, the main character. the book is first person POV, so it's all told from sookie's point of view, and she...well, she annoys me. seriously, the only reason I'm reading these books is because of the vampires, and one vamp in particular. the character Eric Northman. he's so frickin awesome and I'm totally in love with him and finally, FINALLY, she's (the author) done what I want her to with him, and his relationship with sookie. 

so those books have really wrapped me up this week. I know I picked Alex up from work one day and we drove around a little, stopped at Culver's for lunch...well, hah, dinner :D we made tentative plans to hang out maybe two or three times this last week but that never happened. no big deal, I've been so into these books I barely notice the outside world. 

I'm just gonna skip to Friday because as I said, I haven't been doing much of anything this last week. we went to Taco Bell instead of the mall on friday because Brandon wasn't going to be there and Jared didn't show up either. the song 'Time After Time' came on while we were there. I have a version that's done by Eva Cassidy, and apparently the original was by Cindi Lauper? I don't know. but this one was by like...I don't even know, Less Than Jake or Silversun Pickups. some punk/pop band that I don't listen to. I remember catching a few of the lyrics and being like...'um, wtf mates?' and Aly just goes, 'yea, it's what you think it is.' so funny. there's no need to re-do a song like that in such an upbeat tempo. it's not meant to be like that :p

Saturday we went to Webb's at around 11 something. my mother actually came with us, so it was my Mother, my Father, my uncle bob, my cousins ben and mike and me. a little after we ordered my mom asks what the date is, I don't know why, but she did and I look at my phone and tell her, it's the 17th. and the annoying lightbulb goes off over my head and I remember that I had the stupid summerfest interview yesterday morning. It was 12 in the afternoon, the interviews were going on until 1 PM. my mother and I rushed home, I changed clothes, found my purse and my social security card, we rushed down to summrefest and got there at like....12:30. so I made it, had the interview, it was all good. 

that night, Kevin and I went over to Aly and Brandon's house to watch the Chipmunk movie, the Squeakquel. we'd watched the first one as a big family thing, and I'd actually brought Jesse to that, hah. the movie was ok. you could tell they were grasping at any kind of plotline they could come up with to be able to introduce the Chipettes, and it was thin and not well formed because of that. 

today, I read the 9th Sookie book and we went to Olive Garden for dinner. I sat around and didn't eat much because everyone was talking to me, about the Summerfest job, about the Post Office job that I haven't heard anything about in weeks. so that's kind of annoying. *shrug*

hm..go read the sookie stackhouse books. eric is my absolute favorite person right now :D

  • Day 24 - whatever tickles your fancy: Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels (although I'm only about three quarters through the first one) are very good. The first one starts a little slow, and I'm still not sure who they're going to wrap this little mystery up, but I really like Bill. Not Sookie so much, but Bill's pretty awesome. I don't love Harris' writing style. It confuses and annoys me more often than not, and usually I wouldn't be able to read a series with an author like that, but my mother bought me these books for Christmas last year, and I have to read them, if only to assuage my guilt at not even touching them since I got them. 

So. I don't highly recommend reading them, but I will at least say that they're good, and I'm enjoying them. :D
