I have no effing idea…

I have a perfectly good excuse.  See… I don’t know if you realized this or not but last week was Halloween and Halloween is MY holiday.  We started watching horror movies on Sunday and partook in one a night for the whole week.  That cut into my reading time.  Plus, I was about three hours short on sleep for two nights, rendering me perfectly useless for most of the week.  Friday night I handed out candy and went grocery shopping.  Saturday I cooked, cleaned, and decorated for the party.  Sunday I didn’t move from the couch and watched 13 episodes of Lost even though I’ve seen the whole series and played the Sims.

I read an interesting short story in my short story collection (The Oxford Book of Short Stories, 1981).  “A Horse and Two Goats” by R.K. Narayan.  It was interesting.  I don’t know if I got it.  My eyes were dry and bloodshot from lack of sleep.  I tried to read the Parrish book that I picked up this week because it takes place in the cemetery of an old mental home in Michigan and that’s super close to home and it sounded delightfully thrilling.  I gave up two chapters in.  It was number 7 in a series and it was just too much back story for me to care.

I promise that life will near normal soon enough.  Horror movie season is over and I don’t know that I’ll keep on with the Lost. Though, I did really enjoy playing the Sims….  And it is NaNoWriMo….

May you read more than I am!
