I just realized I haven’t done one of these in a while so here’s to good ol’ life life-y updates. Be warned, there’s about to be a lot of Doctor Who talking below. You’ve been warned.
+ Lance came home early from work on Monday and brought with him A BRAND NEW DYSON. IN PURPLE. I’ve never been so excited to vacuum in my life. Apparently, Dysons are color coded or something so it’s not like Lance bought the purple Dyson because purple is my favorite color but rather he bought the “animal” Dyson since we have two big balls of fur and all animal Dysons are purple. But it’s perfect. Perfect.
+ Last week I started volunteering at one of the local libraries! No one is hiring around these parts so I figured volunteering would still be a good way to get some experience while working on my MLIS. So, every Tuesday and Wednesday I go for a couple of hours and help out with story time, which has been a lot of fun so far!
+ So when I’m not working or doing school work for my MLIS, I’ve been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately. I mean, A LOT. At first I was like “What is going on here? I don’t understand.” But now? I LOVE IT. I’m a Whovian. I blame my friend Meg (who gets an inordinate amount of text messages from me regarding Doctor Who) and Erinn.
+ A couple of weeks ago I got this HUGE urge to do some cross stitching. Which was really random considering the last time I did this was a good 10 years ago. But I got the urge so I scavenger through my mom’s room and found all the supplies needed and I did a little Doctor Who cross stitching, because I’m obsessed.
+ In related news, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get over the emotional damage I’ve suffered at the hand of the BBC. Between Sherlock, Downton, and now Doctor Who I might need a therapist.
+ SPEAKING OF EMOTIONAL DAMAGE. I’m about to watch the last two episodes of Season 4, aka the last two episodes with the 10th Doctor and I’m so scared/nervous. I’ve heard his regeneration is the saddest moment of preeettty much the entire series and considering I’m still not 100% over 9th Regeneration and Doomsday, this scares me.
+ Yesterday I got the happiest of mails ever! My pal Stephanie went to Mid-Winter ALA and I was a little really jealous because a) it’s the ALA and b) Rainbow Rowell was there! BUT she was awesome and get Rainbow to sign a copy of Eleanor & Park and I got it yesterday in the mail. And yesterday also happened to be E&P’s 1st birthday so that was awesome!
So that’s what has been going around these parts lately! Now excuse me while I go try to grow the cajones to watch these last two episodes with 10…
