Hey, everyone! It’s Thursday again, which means it’s time for another instalment of Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts. As always this, this hosted by Christine over at Bookishly Boisterous. Drop by, say hey.
1. Tomorrow begins the October holiday for schools, and I’m SO excited to have a full week of work with no students. I have a ton of work to get done and it’s going to be a thousand times easier with empty schools.
2. I’ve got 50 pages left of My Best Friend’s Exorcism and it’s SO GOOOOD. I’m absolutely loving it and can’t wait to see how it ends.
3. I’ve got about 90 minutes of 99 Red Balloons left and though there was a nice twist, I really hate pretty much every character? I think maybe books about kids disappearing just aren’t for me. I can’t handle the constant whining and “WHERE IS SHE??????” and crying and consoling. I probably sound super heartless, but if this is the majority of your 11 hour audiobook, something is wrong.
4. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is BACK tomorrow (maybe Saturday in the UK, if the uploading to Netflix works the way it did last season). This is the fourth and final season, and has an astounding EIGHTEEN episodes. I can’t wait.
5. This weekend is looking fairly relaxed, with a couple movie nights and some football on the agenda. I think my film pick this week is Hereditary, and I’m excited to see how it goes.
6. I’m really craving pizza but lunch is in 20 minutes so maybe I’m just hungry? Or maybe it’s because I’m like 72% pizza already.
7. I’m thinking about learning how to bake? Which, I’m aware, two months after I said I was going to change my diet isn’t the greatest thing. But I want the skill. I want to be able to make really special desserts for big occasions. I’m thinking about buying the Great British Bake Off cookbook, but if you’ve got other recommendations for good ones, please send them my way.
8. Payday is still waaaay too far away. But when it comes, Craig and I are going to look for a hamster.
9. I know it’s not even Halloween yet and my brain is skipping over Thanksgiving completely, but I’m crazy excited for Christmas. It’s not just the time off work (though that’s a huge plus) – I love Christmas movies and I always feel extra cozy in December, and I get to hang out with my Scottish family (and their dog, Alfie).
