I Am Number Four by Pitticus Lore. Pretty decent alien story – an alien has escaped from a dying planet and hiding from the other alien race that destryed his planet.
Lies of Lock Lamore By Scott Lynch. really good fantasy story of con artsits and thieves. Review here
So two books for July so far.
no really, I ‘m talking about socks. Which , if you know me, is ridiculous. I ‘m not a sock person. I don’t really ike to wear them . They complicate getting dressed. Ok, I do like my cute, sexy, over the knee socks. But making sure I have a clean matching pair just adds one more complication. Of course, Now I am walking a bazillion miles a week. Socks actually matter . They make a difference. Not only am I wearing socks, I actually have options about fit and feel. And now a new complication. If you walk a lot – they wear out. Not visibly, but I can feel it. I have to get rid of socks that look perfectly good, but are not. And I may have to start pulling a Shelly and carrying a second pair. The last two miles of my walk yesterday were slower – mostly due to the possibility of getting blisters from my socks.
I miss my carefree sockless days.
A month or so ago , a friend was astounded that I sometimes walk to and from work . :How long does it take”? she asked. When I said it was an hour or so each way – she waeven more astonished and wondered if it was ‘a lot of time to spend just walking’.
I did not get to do my more usual two hour walk on Tuesday. A doctor’s appointment sort of got in the way. That ate up one of my hours. And I ended up with an extra hour at home . I watched an episode of Glee, swept the kitchen floor , did the dishes , threw in a load of laundry, and poked at my computer. So not a waste of time, but I’m not sure it was time well spent. I didn’t waste time – but it wasn’t the same as good exercise and thinking time.
As I said to my friend who thought an hour of walking was a long time – there are better and worse ways to spend your time. Laundry and dihes are not the best ways to spend time
