Not Much To See Here
This weekend our plans include running up to NC to get our marriage license. This should be interesting -- it's a race weekend in Charlotte, and the locals can get a bit crazy if it involves NASCAR and exhaust fumes. Oh, and beer. Beer is a natural ingredient when it comes to racing. Then on Sunday or Monday we're off to yet another fair, but this time the state fair. Should be interesting since we've never been.
I've gotten really good at talking about nothing of consequence, it seems. I need a topic, and since I'm slowly dragging my way through Linda Howard's newest release, VEIL OF NIGHT, I'm fresh out. I had to put aside the Jen Crusie book so I could get this one knocked out, but I'd hit a wall with MAYBE THIS TIME. I'm not sure why, if you don't factor in all the things I've had going on lately. I wound up renewing it at the library so I have another two weeks on it. While I was finding the dialogue and character interaction fun, I have a hard time with zany romance and, although this doesn't bleed inanities, I don't do well with goofball-type behavior. And there's a few of those episodes spread throughout. But we'll see. My reading tastes have changed throughout the years, and I cringe to think of all the contemporary romances I have on the TBR, many of them highly recommended by several friends. It seems a shame that those might be some of the first ones I toss out when I get back into a Clean Sweep Mode.
