Is it weird that I’ve had this weird “Cesar Flickerman” type voice in my head all morning, booming that it is “Dewey’s Read-a-Thon Today?” I don’t know what year readathon this is, so I can’t go it’s the 74th Annual Read-a-Thon!!!! *sigh* Wouldn’t it be something if people are doing this 60-some years from now?
I am such a nerd.
And, not for the first time, I’m wishing it started at 6:00 here instead of 8. I’m ready to go! What can I do with two hours? Huh? Huh? Bueller?
Forgive me, I’m a little weirder than usual this early in the morning.
Okay, so yeah, I’m ready to go this party started. I have my humogeous pile of books, I have snacks, I have music to play, I have no kids – for the time being, I’ll be reading with them later – the hubby is asleep for a few more hours…. Only thing I have to deal with is this whiny cat and the stupid dog who got out of his pen last night and ran in the stupid road and made my really really bad headache MUCH MUCH WORSE because I had to run my ass off to catch him.
See, I told you I’m weirder in the morning.
Okay, so, I got an email from my service provider last night. Apparently MY SERVER is getting an update in the next 48 hours (how’s that for specific?), so it is entirely possible my blog will disappear for awhile. *grumble* WHY THIS WEEKEND? I know, right? At least I’ll have Twitter and Facebook.
I could have sworn I signed up to be a cheerleader, but, alas, I never got any emails about it, so I guess I didn’t. So I’ll be haphazardly cheering on my own. Watch out. Hopefully I’ll be fully awake soon.
At 8:00 (or so), I’ll be picking up Graceling by Kristin Cashore, as it is the only book I’ve been able to make stick the last few days. Isn’t that the best? Going into the Read-A-Thon with a slump hanging over your head? It may be a day of rereading. I shall, at least, see, and maybe you will too, if my blog behaves.
What are you reading today? What snacks are you eating? I need snack ideas.
