The Weekend

Started out well enough.

A friend and I met for dinner and went to see a modern dance troupe. Sounds high brow, doesn't it? One of the dancers did a shadow dance to March of the Pigs by NIN. The coolest and best dance in the show.

My big girl bedroom set came on Saturday. I am smiling thinking about my stuff. Makes me want to dance, and I did when the delivery guys arrived. Had to wonder what they were thinking. I also had a new chair and funky pillows delivered.

Saturday was warm, read fifty degrees. While I am enthralled with my new stuff, I needed to go out into the sunshine. I walked around town and had fun. Bought smelly lavender paper drawer liners to keep my clothes smelling smelly. Went to dinner with another friend.

Sunday I began the process of moving clothes into the drawers. I also sat in my new chair, read the paper, and finished a Game of Thrones by George Martin. Two friends recommenced the book over Labor Day. I put off reading it because the book was supposed to be Science Fiction. I am not much of a SciFi fan. Finally I picked it up and finished it. I would have been glad to move on to a new book, but oh no, George Martin writes in a series. Mr Martin left a cliff hanger at the end of the Game of Thrones. I purchased the sequel, A Clash of Kings, today.

Man, everyone seems to have had a great weekend. Nice weather, new stuff, NIN dance troups, reading books, hiking outside, I was stuck at work all weekend.

But I did get those Police tickets.

That's how the sci-fi guys suck you in, Michelle. They only write in great hulking series, the bastards.

It's a fantastic series. I got hooked on the "it's not really sci-fi, sci-fi" line as well.

Now, I'm just waiting for the next book to come out. It was supposed to be out three months ago.

I've gotten so bad I've started stalking his website. It's a sickness. Just thought I'd warn you.

What's the book about? I'm casting about for things to read and I'm bored with what I have...

The book is a fantasy book, I guess. Essentially the book reads more like the 15th century War of the Roses. The story focuses on a fuedal lord's family and their part within a kingdom's politics.
