A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

Sunday = Reading

Just GG and I at home again. This is so weird. Quiet. It's bittersweet. I miss Beanie like crazy even though he's been gone less than a week. I've seen him once and talk to him everyday. I figure it's an adjustment period.

Just finished reading Turbulent Sea by Christine Feehan. Don't ask me why this book when I have other awesome books to read. That I'm dying to read. I guess because it's pink and was on the top of the pile. That and I've barely gotten all the booty from RWA unpacked.

I'm happy to report I'm caught up with posts on google reader. I need to get Twitter off my sidebar. I think. Maybe I'll leave it up for awhile. I don't know what I want to put up there. With more people using Bloglines, Google Reader and other feed readers I've become lazy about keeping my page up to date. Of course, I'm still thinking about changing it, but then quite a few people I met at RWA remembered my page because of my banner. My meditating chickie is memorable and I love her. Who knows what I'll do. I'm still ruminating.

Now I'm running off to read the rest of the day. GG is glued to the Olympics. I like them, but only particular events. He watches it all. Sculling? Seriously? Dude!

I sorta get it. The discipline. The focus. The resulting body with rippling abs... but to watch? A real yawner.

Yeah, give me a book every time.

I'm afraid I am with GG on this one. I can watch most Olympic events, and sculling can be exciting if it is a close race, or if there is a medal on the line.

We've been watching the Olympics as well - although not all the events. The Boyfriend draws the line at cycling and rowing. I'm biding my time until the track and field events start, as those tend to be my favorites.

Oh, and I've been reading this weekend as well! Oh joy! Oh happy day! I'm determined to kick this slump to the curb.

LOL, I'm definitively with GG and Marg on this one... and since Canada's hope of medals lies with rowing, scully, canoe and kayak, I'm definitively watching those. It's exciting when you see a close race... seriously. Or see one leading and the other trying to catch up.

Have to say, I'm more bored when it's soccer or basketball... sigh.

As for Beanie, you're going to get used to it, I'm sure :)

Oh, and was the Feehan good? I just got it :)

Marg, as Seinfeld says, "I couldn't get into it." I do think sculling appears more international and balanced though. It doesn't appear that any one country dominates.

Wendy, were you reading in the same room as the TV & BF watching the Olympics? I do that less and less now. I did watch some gymnastics last night.

Nath, maybe it would be a leeetle bit more exciting if I was watching the home team row...maybe.

I didn't watch the basketball game, but GG did. I do like watching the NBA from time to time. I guess the truth is I'm a fickle sports fan.

As for the Feehan it was good, not great. I really wanted more back story on Ilya and less Russian mob.

Rosie: I can read in the same room while BF is watching TV....but it all depends on what he's watching. He also watched quite a bit of preseason football yesterday, and since I'm a regular season or nothing girl, I read while he watched. Not during the Olympics though. I was too distracted to concentrate on a book.

Hey Rosie - you'll have to let me know how you like TS...Katiebabs brought it for me to RWA but I haven't delved into it yet.

Enjoy your quiet time!

I haven't read any Christine Feehan books and I'm not sure if I ever will, Im too scared...her backlist scares the ever living crap out of me but the Olympics?

Yep...I'm ALL OVER THAT. I'm on my way home in a little bit to watch it..I was cheering so loud with my kiddies last night when the Americans beat out the Frenchy's who said they were going to SMASH America...HA, and America took home the gold, WOO HOO!!! I've watched everything from fencing to Men/Women's Volleyball, both Beach and Indoor, Men's Basketball, Sculling, Swimming, Gymnastics, Water Polo...I'm watching it all!

Wendy, it seems the older I get the more difficult it is to have distractions. We are both (GG & I) reading more and watching TV less. Although the strike helpe with that and I'm wondering what will happen when new shows come on next month.

Tracy, I liked it. Loved Ilya (hero) because he's tortured. I just wish we'd had more of his back story. Bummer that.

Rowena, it's so funny because here at the red, white and blue fire dept pretty much everyone is GO USA! Everyone is watching and talking about it so it's sort of fun.
