Ah, I remember the good old days when I could blame Twitter for my lack of blogging. Now I don't even tweet that much anymore. Shall I make Facebook my new scapegoat or just admit that I'm horribly over-scheduled, with a twist of laziness?
So what have I been up to?
Well, I had a book club discussion about this:
In keeping with the subject matter, I wore my Iron Maiden shirt.
I'm pretty sure Eddie is a zombie, right?
I planted a bunch of bulbs that will grow into these:
...and also quite a few hostas. It's going to be a while before I see anything surface, but I'm hoping for some nice, healthy plants like the one above, which grew next to our garage a couple of years ago.
Bossy's (No) Book Tour rolled through Kansas City and gave me the opportunity to hang out with Cagey, Rita, Angie, Anne, Becky, Kate, Jenny and Deanna, as well as non-bloggers Kim (hi, Kim!) and Linda.
I took part in a yoga flash mob in the Crossroads district last week. I was in the very back and apparently out of everyone's camera range because I didn't see myself in any of the many photos of the event.
My sister, niece and nephew came with me and I also ran into Jenny and my friend LuAnn. Even though I was late enough that I didn't do all ten sun salutations (it was probably six or seven), I still had sore abs all weekend long. So, yay!
That afternoon I went to see Iron Man 2 with XO and his daughter, and the whole Sader Family. Later that evening, I went to Queen of Quirky's house to watch the Avatar Rifftrax with fourteen other people.
Then there's work, volunteer work, etc. All the stuff I always do that isn't worth detailing again.
And now I'm caught up. Whew.
Looking ahead, my band is playing on Saturday night in Blue Springs, Missouri. All the details are here, if you'd like to come out. It'll be our first chance to play some of our new songs and also use our cool new banner that I got from VistaPrint.
Speaking of VistaPrint (hey, I've gone on this long, might as well keep going...), their boundary-infringing marketing philosophy kicked in again as soon as I placed my order. I deliberately chose not to sign up for their e-mail list because I know how they are, so they CALLED ME ON MY CELL PHONE to try to up-sell me and talk me into signing up for their e-mail list. No, no, a thousand times no!
I am in the middle of "And Another Thing..." by Eoin Colfer, which I found on the bookstore bargain table for $5.95 while I was killing time before Iron Man. I had been *this close* to buying it at an airport bookstore at full price last month, so naturally I had to buy it and congratulate myself on my thriftiness.
So rather than go on forever and blow another ten days' worth of blog topics, I'll bring this to a close and go read my book. Goodnight, all. Enjoy the rest of your week!
