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.

Lots of work at the salt mines this week. Remember my comment that you always pay for the short work week? I hate when I'm right.
(Not really. I actually love it when I'm right. Aren't you? Heh.)

Did anybody see the season finale of RESCUE ME? We watched it over the long weekend. Holy crap! Right?

I went swimming for the first time in 3 weeks yesterday morning. It was glorious. The water temperature verged on bath water which is a tad warm for lap swimming, but I can't complain. Really. Can't. Nothing beats the sheer happiness of getting back in the water.

I'm currently reading Christine Feehan's latest. I'm about half way through it and am feeling sort of 'meh' about it. Anybody else reading it?

Instead of finishing my August reading list, which at this rate I'll post sometime in November, I watched THE JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB for about the sixth time. It's not a spectacular movie particularly, but I get hooked by it every time.

Okay here goes, after more than 15 years at the same nail salon I'm making a change. Why am I writing about it? Well, it's sort of a big deal to me because I'm a very loyal person. Not to mention I still really like the person who did my nails, I just don't like the shop any more. I've been stewing about making the change for months and finally made the leap. Did I mention I haven't really told the people at the old shop yet? They called yesterday and I sort of dodged telling them. I know. I'm a coward.

Color me stunned. Did not see that coming.

Last night getting ready for bed GG is thinking this...

While I'm thinking this...

and this...

But THIS is what really happened.

Ahhhhh...marriage, ya gotta love it.

I am done with Feehan. I tried to read Dark Slayer and kept rolling my eyes. Even though I would love to have that wolf pelt coat the heroine had.

"THIS is what really happened!"

I'm so happy for you that you were able to go swimming--hooray Rosie!

I've never read Feehans Dark series. I read the Ghostwalker series.

I LOVE the Jane Austen Book Club. Such a cute movie. Is it bad that I'm just now reading my FIRST Austen novel? Pride and Prejudice, we're reading it for our book club selection.... :)

Oh Rosie. You bought Dark Slayer? Is it time for a intervention?

Speaking of - I should look at the holds list for that one. The last Dark book in hard cover was off the charts for us at work.

The author who wrote The Jane Austen Book Club? Yep, one of the keynote speakers at my library's literary event in April. Tra la la la la....

I haven't read Feehan in a long time. I didn't even get her last Drake Sisters because I was bored with the one before.

I'm so glad you're back in the pool! That's awesome! I'm back at the gym myself and happy about it, but not running still.

I CANNOT believe you're changing nail salon's!!! Where are you going next? Is it the same one Joy goes to?

And Jane Austins Book Club was just a fun movie! Wish we were watching together!

kb, there were "good" parts, but yeah, not a great book.

AL, yeah, even us romance readers need a reality check once in a while. It's a good thing GG has a sense of humor when I expose our real life here on ye olde blog.

Mollie, in all honesty while I've read all CF's series, Ghostwalkers is my fave, which I usually say every time I post about that series.

LR, I loved your post about zaftig brunettes. You also mentioned one of my other favorite comfort movies, LOVE ACTUALLY.

Yeah, I think most of us are in the late-night-side-lamp-reading-club. Plays hell on getting up to go to work though.

Wen, yes! Intervention sounds good. Hey, maybe I'll actually make it to your library thingy this year. Tell me it's not around April 16 which is Shmoo's birthday.

Renee, I had my second visit to the new place, so far so good.

Warrior M,actually the salon is the same one our niece (the new bride) goes to. It's very nice. This weekend L's family is touring one of our fire stations. I think once that's done I'll break the news. I like them too much to not come clean and it's a 15-year relationship too.

Thanks Becky. I loved your lunch stories.

Barbara, like I told LR, I think all of us die-hard rom fans have been there, done that.

Oh, Tumperkin, you say the sweetest things! *wink*

Cindy, you are too right change is good. I just hope my relationship with the people at the first salon can withstand the change. 15 years is a long time.

I love Hugh Dancy in that movie. :P

Blogger Rosie said...

ames, Hugh is a real sweetie isn't he? GG and I saw a big tome of Austen's work in the bookstore yesterday and I held it up and said, "Look here it is just like Briggs in JANE AUSTEN'S BOOK CLUB!"

Blogger ~ames~ said...

LMAO!! Did GG have a clue what you were talking about?

9:55 PM PDT  
Blogger Rosie said...

ames, are you kidding me? As many times as I've watched that movie, and so has he by osmosis, he totally knew what I was talking about. Although he cocked his head and said, "Brigg? That was his name?"
