For the record – I’ve been meaning to post this for the last twenty minutes, but I keep watching the prequel to the new Doctor Who episode, “The Bells of St. John” instead. It airs this Saturday! If we hadn’t already run a British Invasion Countdown not too long ago, this week would be all about The Doctor. As it is, he’ll be making an appearance here next week. Darling non-Whovian readers of mine, that means you’ve got six days to catch up with my beloved Matt Smith. You didn’t really want to go to work this week anyway, did you? xo.
Hi there, and welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed your weekends. Did you turn off the lights and participate in Earth Hour this Saturday? I did, although I must confess that it wasn’t quite on purpose. I woke up on Saturday morning feeling like I was fighting a sinus infection, so I spent the day sleeping, reading by candlelight, and sleeping some more. It was just the rest that I needed to prepare for a busy Sunday, although it’s a shame that no one got to appreciate me in such flattering lighting. I have to say, my pajama pants were looking mighty good!
(You guys know that my Harry Potter pajama pants glow in the dark, right?)
Now, much as I’d like to leave you with that entrancing visual for the day, I did want to actually give you an update on my 13 in ’13 Reading Challenge. Book number four comes to me from my wonderful friend Bonnie, and it is at least four kinds of awesome. It’s “The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary” by Simon Winchester. It’s a true story that reads like fiction, with amazing chapter titles like “The Dead of Night in Lambert Marsh”, and I can’t put it down. Sinus infection or not, my review will be making an appearance here next week.
Hmm … two lads visiting from the other side of the pond … perhaps the British Invasion is returning after all!
I’ll see you back here tomorrow, unless they run out of Buckley’s at the drugstore,
PS: The snowmen featured on the Words Become Superfluous Facebook page will also be back here tomorrow. Stay tuned!
