Guten morgen, blog readers! Or rather, guten 1 PM (again).
I'm trying to think of a cutesy name for you (potential) blog readers. All I can come up with is "bleaders" or "breaders." Neither of which sound very appealing.
So last night my mom and I watched It's Complicated, that Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin movie. There I was, just staring at the tv, when suddenly I saw MYSELF. Sort of. The girl who plays the youngest daughter, Gabby, looks like me from the side. It's freaky. The actress' name is Zoe Kazan. Look at her face from the side and tell me that's not me.
In other news, I just made couscous! All by myself! It was delicious. I put blueberries and spinach in it.
Hmmm.....what do you guys want me to talk about? Any ideas? Controversial topics into which you'd like me to delve? Just say the word!
Ooh, book review time!
I finished reading The Year of Secret Assignments yesterday. It was really fun to read. I thought it was really witty and clever, and its structure was fairly original. Occasionally, though, I did get a little annoyed with some of the characters, particularly Emily. She was so petty sometimes, and her misuse of words drove me crazy. Granted, some of her misused words could have been Australian slang I'm not aware of, but I doubt it.
Finally, I just need to make sure that all of my bleaders (yay? nay?) are aware of "California Dorks." It's a wonderful antidote to the worthless drivel that is Katy Perry's "California Gurls." I know I'm a little late to the party, but I finally watched it last night and I'm OBSESSED. And I'm getting my Facebook friends obsessed too. :-P It's worth a watch or twelve.
