What I'm Into (March 2015)

Reading: Well I got a little crazy at the library a while back.  I hit my ten book limit and had to put two books back.  It was devastating. Basically, Sophie's Choice. Ed And no, I don't think I'm being a little dramatic. I picked up Red Rising, The Farm, Saint Odd, Shopaholic, Teleportation Accident, The Martian, Code Name Verity, Miss Peregrine (which I have been looking for FOR YEARS), and Minecraft for Dummies.  That last one is for Scott.  Obviously.  But it did cut into my ten limit! He's so lucky I'm not like a regular mom, I'm a cool mom. I also grabbed a photography book if you're wondering why that's only nine. So yeah.  ALL THE BOOKS.  I'm on the waitlist for Girl on the Train and The Ice Twins, but here's hoping they don't call any time soon bc I can't take any more out!! Although actually, I could bc I've finished a few of those already.  And I can always make Scott get the Minecraft book himself.

Watching: Walking Dead.  Obvi.  I thought the second half of this season started slow and lame.  I wasn't sad that Beth had died because I don't like Beth, and I didn't even care that Daryl was upset bc I don't buy him caring that much about her.  I did feel awful for Maggie though, and I thought for sure she was going to kill herself.  I'm glad that Tyrese finally died.  I don't care that he was a pussy- I could have forgiven him that.  Not everyone can be a badass.  But he was a pussy who LIED and tricked everyone into thinking that he was a badass.  And that's just making yourself a liability.  So the episodes dragged until Carol went batshit on that kid.  Remember the speech?!?! Something along the lines of "If you tattle on me, I'll tie you to a tree and let the walkers eat you while you scream and no one will ever hear you." HELLO SEX OFFENDER.  Isn't that what they say child predators do?!?! Or really, I guess that's what anyone who needed to threaten you would do.  Anyway, it picked up after that.

I thought the finale was good, but not mind blowing.  I think it might be time to call it quits.  There's nothing wrong with bowing out gracefully.  At all.  It's certainly better than stretching it out until it's lame and awful. Cough Fringe cough.  And CSI. And I could go on and on.

But seriously.  Community of people who suck? Done it with the Governor. The Wolves remind us that people are more dangerous than walkers? Done it with Terminus and those dudes who wanted to rape Karl.

And I'm calling bullshit on Daryl walking into that trap.  NO WAY JOSE. I mean, there were tin cans strung up everywhere.  Trucks of food.  And Daryl of all people wasn't suspicious?!?! GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

Going: Going to see Letters Live tonight!!! Friends of ours from Auburn are here for the weekend and I'm gonna cheat on Megan and take her instead.  Last year was so epic, and this year is supposed to be even better.  Benedict Cumberbatch is supposed to read at least once every night, but I'll believe that when I see it. Regardless, I'm super excited, and even though I have no reason to think it, I'm hoping Loki might just show up.  What, he's got a great reading voice!! He might be there!! You never know.  I'm still devastated that I missed when Scully read, but alas.  There's nothing I can do about it now. Except maybe find the youtube... (language, but just a little)
Edit: I typed this up yesterday and forgot to post it! Scully wasn't there :( But Benedict Cumberbatch was, and he read a LOT. AND!!! Anna Bates was there!!! And Ellie Miller from Broadchurch!!! It was fun, but I have to say.... last year was better.  

Sewing: Ya'll, I finally feel like a REAL quilter. I think I'm  'straight line' quilting? I used duct tape on my tiny International Night quilt to mark up a crosshatch pattern (thanks Bestie!) and I'm sewing all along it and it's gorgeous and I love it and I'm OBSESSED. I can't wait to tape up Serena's quilt!!! Except first I need to make it.  Oops.

Looking Forward to Slash Haven't Planned At All: Well, we leave for a few days in Cornwall on Tuesday and I haven't cracked open the library book or pinned so much as a single Fun Things to Do in Cornwall.  I need to get on that.  As soon as I finish this episode of Supernatural.

What were you into this month?
