Miscellaneous lightning round

I managed to get myself a whopper of a sunburn. I don’t normally wear tank tops, except to sleep in, but I decided to wear one to weed and mulch yesterday an area of the yard that I’ve not kept up on for several years. My shoulders… :gaah:

If you write dark paranormals or just like Disturbed, get thyself their new CD “Indestructible” which released several weeks ago. Dark, sexy, awesome and slightly twisted. Their first two CDs were good, but slightly chaotic and hard for me, but this one…love it!

(Advisory note: If you have a child who parrots songs and you don’t want the child to say “motherf–ker” a lot, you might want to use headphones.)

Just finished reading Sleeping with Ward Cleaver by Jenny Gardiner. OMG, I loved this book. If you’re a hot, single twenty-something with no kids, you might not really get it. But the opening chapters just about killed me. The second half didn’t quite sustain the biting humor and wicked awesome word choices of the first half, but it’s still an awesome book.

Bought National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets the day it came out, but still have yet to watch it, despite our total adoration of the first one. The husband’s schedule precludes him from sitting still for more than 2 1/2 minutes without falling asleep, and the kids want to watch it with Dad. I also have guilt because there are a couple of people who wanted to borrow it, but we bought it on Blu-ray.

Oh, and hot damn, how ‘those Celtics? :cheer: Exciting stuff! The decision to move the broadcasts of the Finals to an hour later is kicking my ass, though. My days of being a night-owl are so over.

    I don’t burn. S’what happens when you are born brown.

    I am also a braggart. S’what happens when you are born brown.

    Hope the burn heals and doesn’t peel.
