I'm still laptop-less. Tonight on the news I heard about the new I-pad 3 that's come out. It's suppose to take great pics, and have a pretty good photo app (at least, I think it takes pics, might have understood that wrong - cause can't imagine holding it up to take pictures, now that I think about it.) and has great screen resolution for reading text. Might be something to save up for in the future - haha, y'know to spend all my money that I DON'T have on. Onc can always dream, though.
Hosted by Sheila of Book Journey, it's time to discuss our current reads....
I'm having stronger than usual shoulder pain, and the other back issues haven't gone away, so there won't be a lot of typing going on tonight...
This past week, I finished reading R.M. Meluch's The Sagittarius Command. Boy what a good, fun Space Opera romp! (I love that word, ROMP, it's so...ROMPY!)
I also reviewed it (faster than normal). Now I'm about 100 pages from the end of the fourth in the series - Strength and Honor. Just as fun, except there's way more information being introduced - space information...science and planet/star formations, etc. Luckily these are presented as one or two page sections, and aren't two eye-glazing. There's also some history, although it's future history. important to the story, yet --well, there's quite a bit of it. Thank goodness Meluch has an interesting way of presenting her "info-dumps" - interesting enough to keep me reading.
Thanks to my brothers, I'm going on a trip - except it's by plane, it's to a place very far away, and right now the location is secret - because it's a surprise for someone....I don't think this person reads my blog, never gave the info up. But I'm getting nervouse because I don't like planes. I don't like being around a lot of people, crowds kind of freak me out and it's going to be in a hot and steamy place. I don't do heat well. tend to melt.
Even so, I am looking forward to it - though I might need a hefty dose of valium.
I'm starting to stress out about everything to do with going on a plane trip.
carrying tubes of toothpaste
my perfume that I can't go without
my medicine, do I have to bring my whole bottle?
all of them? each one is a month supply of medicine, and what if it gets lost?
what if I throw up on the plane
what if we have a crazy stewardess?
how am I going to make it up all those steps?
Should I ask my doc to send a note about my back problems?
I should have already taken care of that. geez
what if I don't have enough money for anything?
I hate never having as much money as the rest of my siblings
I don't even have a credit card, and they're always - "lets go out to this expensive restaurant!" Can't afford it.
now I'm getting negative
I'm also kind of aging, and I don't have pretty skin anymore on my legs, and my muscular brothers who are younger than I am and still are handsome - they're going to be all handsome while I look like a wrinkly, pale, overweight person with lumpy skin on my thighs. I'm NOT GOING SWIMMING unless I wear bicycle shorts -
I'm also not going to get a brazilian wax.....not for me
Okay - enough of that
I'm going to have fun no matter what.
