Happy Sunday fellow book lovers! I should be writing this lovely post from the Hilton hotel in Glendale, California and seeing this view while doing so:
Alas, I’m still in Atlanta holding down the fort. For some logistical and personal reasons combined, the Hubs and the rest of his family went without me to celebrate his sister’s engagement. And I’m very sad I couldn’t go, but these things happen. Anyway, he’ll be back tomorrow for an overnight stay before jet-setting off again to Virginia for work.
With the house all to myself, I’ve been marathoning Greek like it’s my job. Really surprised at how much I like this cute, quirky, stereotype busting show. I hated the traditional Greek system in my rather large state university (UGA) and couldn’t stand most people involved in the Greek system so this show was something I missed the first time through. Not having to actually deal with Greek students on a daily basis has given me enough space to disconnect myself from my negative judgments. Oh, and if you were in the social Greek system (not honors fraternities), I don’t mean to offend you – I just had several horrible experiences during my college years as a bus driver driving those kids around and living in the dorms surrounded by pledges. Of course, I knew several Greek kids who were super sweet. They were just often outnumbered.
How did I get so off topic?
If yesterday was for tv watching, today is really for reading. I’ve got two more chapters of North and South before tomorrow’s read-a-long post can be written. Cloud Atlas started off so beautifully, but then I got bogged down halfway through with the Sloosha’s Crossing section and the broken English! The story is still great, but I have to re-read so many sentences to gain the meaning of the broken language and altered words. And it feels more frustrating than amazing. Hopefully, I can finish the last 20 pages of this particular section today!
Hope everyone is having a fabulous Sunday!
