Traveling the World

Okay... Well, maybe not the world, but having just returned from Mexico, we are now (at 2:40 a.m., and well into our second bottle of wine) visiting a good friend of Dave's (also named Dave, only the last name is Steele) in beautiful Youngstown (okay, Poland) Ohio...

God, can I just tell you that hanging with two voiceover guys is freakin' the time of my life!!!! Dave Steele is now playing samples of his voiceover work for (my) Dave... And examples of his outtakes, which, I have to admit, are pretty funny.

(Hang on, I need to refill my glass of wine. We quickly went through a bottle of Marquee Shiraz and I'm now finishing off the last bit of Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin... After the eight hour drive, not counting the time change, wine is a welcome relief.)

So, I apologize for not keeping up on commenting on other blogs and updating my own. Summer has been a wonderful experience so far, and I have been spoiled. Instead of reading blogs and the Internet, I've been gardening and reading. Since we left for Mexico, I've finished Middlesex (recommended by Blogarita), The Starter Wife, and The Memory Keeper's Daughter. Next on the list: The Devil Wears Prada. All of these are compliments of (my new addiction) to Bookmooch.com.

Okay, the boys are now listening to the narration of Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (in which I narrated the part of Cindy Lou Who) that Dave and I made for Ella (Dr. Mike and Paula's baby) and Dave Steele just opened an $800 bottle of Grand Marnier that he told us was for his (now 5-year-old daughter's) wedding. Goind to be a fun (and rather intoxicated) weekend. Beautiful.

Thinking of you all now... I promise I will be around over the next couple of days to read and catch up on everyone's blogs.

Word... To your motha...

Ah, don't worry about not commenting on people's blogs. If they care, that's their fault not yours.

Between Bookmooch.com and Frugalreader.com, I have a stack of about a dozen or so books waiting for me. I finished Middlesex, too, and I'm now reading Asylum.

I'm working on some Chuck Palahniuk and some Will Clarke right now. I LOVE SUMMER!

I just finished reading The Color Purple. I've never read it before and they actually put it on the junior class's English curriculum. My other summer reading involves trying to finish World War Z (because who doesn't like a good zombie story?) and The Stand (which, inexplicably, I've never read before).

I would be doing the same if I could. Instead I am using the summer months to prepare my application to grad school. Yay. Either way, I have not spent much time reading/commenting on blogs, either.

Enjoy!

I have three books going...Evening, The Harry Bosch first 3, and The Last Wife of Henry the VIII....enjoy your summer. When you do post it is usually good enough to last a while.

Reading this post really made me want to get a bottle of wine out, and I don't even drink wine!
