Lately I have been in the habit of reading entire books in one evening while Tim watches football, under my green blanket on the couch while his butt keeps my feet warm and eating ice cream. This is possibly my favorite way to spend the evening on boring work nights.|
Monday night/Tuesday morning on the train it was Necklace of Kisses, the sixth entry in Francesca Lia Block's Weetzie Bat books, mostly just for nostalgia's sake. It was okay. If I was 15 I would have loved it. The story was trite and the best parts were the endless descriptions of yummy food. Mmm, food.
Last week it was Bully, the book based on that heinous movie . It was very entertaining and very, very trashy.
Right now I am reading Superstud: or, How I Became a 24 Year Old Virgin by Paul Feig, the guy who created Freaks and Geeks. This was, I think, partially the basis for The 40 Year Old Virgin.. It's funny enough that I kept reading it even though Roseanne came on. The whole first chapter is about masturbation which, as far as I'm concerned, is always hilarious.
Oh yeah, I watched the remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, finally. It was totally not at all scary. And I saw Walk the Line, which managed to be moving even though I knew nothing about Johnny Cash beforehand. It helped that I love Reese Witherspoon. She was riveting.
