Es tut mir leid
Je suis désolé
In other words:
It’s been ages since I last posted (26 days to be exact), and I have absolutely no excuse other than I’ve been reading and scrolling through Tumblr an inordinate amount of times. That’s it. That’s all I’ve got.
So I’ll catch you guys up on my life.
Dad and I went to the Sacramento Wizard World, both dressed as Captain Hammer from Joss Whedon’s ingenious film: Doctor Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog. It was so amazing, that we hadn’t even made it to the Convention Center, when we were stopped by a passing Maintenance worker who recognized our costumes. He took our pictures! How cool is that!?!
I also got a picture with Bruce Campbell there, and adorned myself with gazillions of pins about Firefly, Harry Potter, the Avengers, Doctor Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, The Princess Bride (“Anybody want a peanut?”), and The Big Bang Theory. And no, I did not ask to touch Thor’s hammer. Although I did get to sit through the question/comment panel for him (Chris Hemsworth), Stan Lee, Bruce Campbell and some guy I didn’t know from the TV show Walking Dead.
And then, on the five hour long car drive back to our RV, I got sick. Fever, moaning, sniffles, sore throat, the whole works. It wasn’t that fantastic. But luckily it didn’t happen at Wizard World.
So that was a while back, but how about living in the now?
Just last week, my Mom convinced my Dad to take me to Barnes & Noble to buy two or three books. I was in heaven. You know, they say the quickest way to Kaitlin’s heart is by taking her book shopping. Grandparents, you might wanna write this down as a gift idea: All-expenses-paid trip to the book store.
Anyways, I whipped out the list of books I wanted (yes, I actually keep a list on my iPod, Jose), and I scanned the numerous, dusted book shelves, looking for the three Chosen Ones that would return home with me.
In conclusion, I crossed Divergent, The Maze Runner, and An Abundance of Katherine’s off my book list. I finished Divergent five days ago (I read it for two and a half days straight), I finished An Abundance of Katherine’s in a little less than two days, and I started The Maze Runner, and am already half-way through with it (I haven’t had very much time to read these past two days or so).
You’re probably thinking ‘Three books!? Her list must be very tiny now!’
Nope. Actually, I’ve added more books to the list (in case you’re wondering, it’s the next books in the Divergent series, and all other books ever written by John Green).
It has become my goal to read enough books to fill a small library. I’m not really sure how many books that would be, but it sounds like a fun thing to do.
