The real highlight of my day was when Mike reminded that Mishka NYC was having a super fabulous sale!!! And while I didn't partake in the cheapest shirts on sale, I did pick up 3 really amazing shirts, 2 for yours truly and 1 for Mike... I'm nice like that, ya know. I wish I could post photos of the shirts, but for some reason it just isn't working out for me. I guess I'll just have to take photos of 'em when they arrive in zee mail!
Whelp, I had better run upstairs and grab a shower... I was unable to nap today at work and I am beginning to feel both thirtsy and sleepy.
I can honestly say that the last time a book captivated me this much was when I read the last ('sob') Harry Potter book, The Deathly Hallows.
All I knew about Hero when I went into it was that it was about a gay teenager who had superpowers. On paper it doesn't sound all that great, a little interesting usre, but not exactly anything to write home about. But as I got deeper and deeper into the book--- who am I kidding?! By the end of the first chapter I was madly in love with the story. :) I wanted to write a synopsis of the book for you, but since I was up so late last night reading my brain is not exactly in full-effect; plus, I write film reviews, not book ones!
Here is the description from Amazon.com:
Now that I have conquered Hero, it is time to put my bookworm energy into World War Z... although I have to admit, its following a pretty tough act.

Because of this more time has been spent talking on the phone, both of us thought the majority of that talking was done using Skype, but when his phone company called and informed him that he was $300 over his usual bill! And when you break that down and really think about it, that is basically his plane to come and see me; I suppose this means his trip to Baltimore is indeed delayed.
It definitely whomps being with someone who doesn't live close by because it means we get to see each other once every 2 months... although, probably more like 3 now.
On to something else that doesn't involve blah-wahing about my far off love, tonight at 7pm Hexagon is showing a free film and it happens to be one by the great Pasolini:
Earlier in the week, when I found out about it, I was completely gung-ho on going. Hexagon is not that far from my place (only a 20 minute walk) and I would love to see a Pasolini film I hadn't seen. But now that the day has arrived, and my iPod battery is almost deadzo, making that 20 minute trek does not sound all that good and my friend, Evan, said it best when he mentioned that I probably didn't actually want to watch a Pasolini film with a bunch of pretentious wieners (i.e.: the only people who would go and see it). I may be a meuvie snob, but I'm not as asshole-y as one would imagine.
Who knows, I may change my mind and feel up to going once I get home. Or maybe I'll clean the Shark Den since those a-holes are coming to inspect on Friday! GRRRR!!!
Last night staying up until 12:30 would not have seemed like that big of a deal, but I actually had to in at work at 7:45. After arriving here and realizing that tagging along on a doctor's appointment was what I was in for, I was okay with feeling a little "zombie-ish" thinking that the running around would wake me up.
Luckily for me, the Kiddle is fast asleep and as a matter of fact... I believe that I too with also partake in a cat nap.
One of the reason for my late night was not only my waiting for Boyfriend to call me after he got out of the meuvies; no, I was also in quite the pickle as to which "new" book I would be devoting my time to...
The other novel (I think its actually even a "Teen" book) that is in the race for my attention is one that I actually gave to my best friend for X-mas. As far as I know its the tale of a teenage boy dealing with having superpowers and also struggling with his sexuality. In all honesty, I have a feeling that Hero is going to win this little make-believe competition, not only does it feel like a quick and happy read, but its also not mine and I've had it in my possession for almost 6 months AND I am going to be seeing him next Saturday.
Guess that choice wasn't as difficult as I made it out to be. ;)
I know that there is more that I want to write, but I believe I am going to take advantage of nap-time now....

I had a blog of sorts before, granted it was just "Myspace" but it sure was nice being able to spill my guts to not one specific person, but a social networking site. But as we all know, the tides have changed and Myspace is now the equivalent of a Roy Rogers fast food restaurant... dead. It was hard to give up that blog but I did it and I once again have the itch to spill my guts, so I am now doing it all over again.
