Week in, week out

Right now I am reading a book I’ve been looking forward to for a while: The Know-It-All by A.J. Jacobs. You may have heard of it – it’s the one about the guy who reads the Encyclopedia Britannica all the way through. It’s truly one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. As he proceeds through the alphabet, he tells hysterical anecdotes about how he keeps trying to show off by using knowledge that he found in the EB. And he talks about how he and his wife are trying to get pregnant. And he tells really funny stories about working at Esquire and points out how much syphilis is in the encyclopedia and makes some interesting connections. I keep reading sections to Mike because they make me laugh out loud. In fact, last night I couldn’t sleep and I was reading on the couch downstairs and I kept laughing. A book has to be pretty good to make you laugh at 4:30 am. Anyway, I’m only in the H’s, but I would recommend it very highly.

I have a big list of books waiting after that, because a lady here at work recommended a few for me. I haven’t gotten as much reading done lately as I wanted, because of holiday parties and being out of town and such.

Tonight the Shearers are coming over so we can watch the Extended RotK on our big screen. I am really excited – Mike has already watched it, but he won’t give me any information about the new scenes. I know I could look it up, but I’d rather hear it from someone I know . . . which is why I got Scott to fill me in. hehe.

I’m working tomorrow since I got last Saturday off to go to Nashville. I have been confused all week as to what day it was since I had Monday off. I am looking forward to 5:00 pm tomorrow, that’s for sure.
