So yeah. Slow news days.
And obviously, I can't be like you know who and just go on and on about how magical life is and rainbows and unicorns and pictures of my pigeon toed feet. I mean, yes, my life is pretty fucking magical right now, but it's just not me. I can't do it.
It is AMAZING. At first, it was a little slow going, but then when I started to get into the mystery, it was just amazing. I'm finally to the part where Amy takes over narrating (well I guess she splits with him, because the next chapter is back to him) and I gotta say, my mind was blown. I've NEVER read a book where the narrator can straight up lie. NEVER. But I sort of guessed that that's what was going on. Lance (I can't call him Nick because he's SO yucky) is a douche, but some of the things she was writing just didn't jibe. Is it jibe or jive? I don't know.
Anyway. My mind was blown. I texted Angela in the middle of the night last night and then fell asleep waiting to hear her reply. But she's all 'oooh, I'm not going to tell you anything blah blah blah' anyway. Lame.
And even though there's only two shows on here, one of them is the Following, with Kevin Bacon, and I love it!! Is anyone else watching it? I usually don't pick up new shows in January because they NEVER get renewed for a second season, but hello, it's Kevin Bacon. And Kevin Williamson. So I figure even if it only makes it this half a season, it'll still be worth it.
I jump every single episode. That's a good show, one that can hold my suspense like that? Reminds me a LOT of Silence of the Lambs, the suspense without the really gory gore. And cute little Mike Weston? Horrible name for a character (there will only ever be ONE Michael Weston) but he's such a great dude to play off of Kevin Bacon. They're PERFECT together.
AND, best part? The castle was built in the 1200s and it's all REAL. Love. See the sheild in the middle spot above?
The tables were all set with the most GORGEOUS pottery. Too bad they didn't sell it, because I would have paid a small fortune for this one.
We climbed some six hundred steps to the top, even Warren!! I was so proud of that little spaz.
They also had yet another wonderful showman giving archery lessons. He was SO good with the kids. And if you've met MY kids, you know that's saying a lot. He responded differently to each of them, it was just perfect. Have I mentioned how awesome this entire experience was?
They also had a dude doing a birds of prey lesson. Pretty cool.
And a playground with a zipline. I should note here that for six pounds, you get a bottomless 'hot cup' and they'll give you more than one at once. So while the kids were playing at the park (in the subzero temps, I might add) I was getting three FREE hot chocolates. It was neat, we got probably went through about eleven drinks that day, which would have been more than twenty pounds.
All right. I need to get to work with an itinerary for Wales and Ireland. Rough life I'm living, right?
