Slacker

Today's blog entry was going to be a picture filled final wave to my vacation in Anguilla. Obviously my mad procrastination skillz have taken over and there are no fabulous pictures with pithy comments*cough* gracing these here pages. I have a really good excuse. No, really I do! Last night when I was supposed to be creating away I was doing this:



It's the last book, and Im into the last chapters, and OH MY AUNT EDNA'S ASS I couldn't put it down! But it was soo intense I had to put it down- several times in fact- and walk around the house pretending I was done reading for the night- going to write- Yeah, that's it, Im going to write. But no, I have to find out what happens!(Yes I talk to myself just like this, and yes, I do need to get a life)

I still don't know what happens (Shhh! Don't tell me!). I read until 11:30 and could very well have kept on going until I finished the book, but I made a promise to myself to get enough sleep this week as part of the Healthy You Challenge(dammit!). So I closed the book as our heroic trio was making their way to confront you- know-who in the Shrieking Shack and went to bed.

So there you have it, my secret slacker shame, but to paraphrase the words of perhaps the most famous procrastinator in literary history
" I won't think about that right now. I'll think about that tommorrow. Afterall, tomorrow is another day".


Now where did I put that book.......

Frankly my dear... we can wait another day! I'm the same when I get stuck into a good book!

Don't you just LOVE when a good book grabs hold of you that way? To me, it's one of the great joys of life!

Oh, I was the exact same way with that book...I had to put it down and cry even, and that series isn't necessarily my favorite one in the book world at all...Besides if you finish it...well, then it will be over. I have a dear friend who made me read Eat Pray Love, and she refuses to finish it, because she doesn't want the story to end...

I still haven't read the last two books, I really need to get busy!

Thank you for your book recommendation, I'll add it to my "to read" list.

OOO you're just getting to my favorite part!!! I'm impressed with your self control, I would never been able to put it down there!

Hah. I read the entire book in five hours the day it came out. I'm a serious speed reader, altho comprehension and retention on a first read-through are only about 60%... I almost always read books at least two or three times if I liked them the first time. Right now I'm re-reading a wonderfully awful book called Devil in Winter (yes, I read historical romances! Such fun!) for like the fifth time.

As fast as I read, I have to re-read frequently, otherwise I'd never have any money at all.

Isn't it the best!?! That going to sleep thing took some real self control

The pictures can wait!

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!

I just got done reading the Kite Runner, and I was the same way.

You could be caught up in a lot worse things than reading.
Do you want me to call you everynight and instead of a wake up call, sing you to sleep?
