Friday Night Dinner | I'm a lazy (or busy) heifer
This week has been pretty much useless, blog-wise. And for that, I apologize. Because no one is willing to pay me to read books and watch Gilmore girls all day, I have a regular job that sends me to places like Tulsa, Oklahoma to schmooze clients.
However, the Tulsa trip wasn't a total bust. In fact, it was totally awesome, because...
I GOT TO MEET LORI FROM THE BROKE AND THE BOOKISH!!!
Lori and I have been friendly for a little bit over Twitter and Facebook, but because I don't pay attention- I didn't realize she was located in Tulsa. And because I can't make a move in this life without posting about it somewhere, Lori saw that I was in Tulsa! In a completely unprecedented (for me) sign of spotaneity, 45 minutes later we were out of our PJs and at a smokey bar drinking cosmos and dishing about our lives.
Tulsa is officially alright in my book!
Black, White & Read Posts>
None... because I was busy sitting on planes and eating airport food.
Cool stuff on Facebook>
"Why is this place only open from 11-5 when there's no way I'll have free time during those hours to check it out? But I guess that's good for my bank account. — at The Bookerie: the Favoring Brave Store."
"Connecticut's main airport has this. Lorelai would be so proud."
Bear's Week in Reading>
The one benefit to being stuck on a plane is a the uninterrupted reading time. So I finally finished Secrets of the Flesh! Now to return it to my library and pay the fine. I'm incorrigible!
Because I had finished Bad Feminist (review to come), I had to pick another audiobook for my commute. One of the commenters on BookRiot's weekly Inbox/Outbox post talked about Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlyn Doughty and I was instantly sold! Little known fact about Bear: for a good majority of her life, she's wanted to be a mortician. Instead, I ended up in equity compensation. TOTALLY similar.
And after many false starts to my reading of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, I think it's finally sticking to my brain. I only wish I had the opportunity to have drinks with Lori (squee! Did I tell you I had drinks with Lori???) before I started The Goldfinch so I could've read The Secret History instead. But she has impeccable taste so The Secret History will be automatically purchased as soon as I finish The Goldfinch.
That's all I have. Because Tulsa. But Husband and I are heading to our cabin in upstate NY for the first time since Lorelai was born... so I hope to get a little more reading in so I have more to report at dinner next Friday night!
So... how was your week?
