|Bruno Mars @ the 2011 MTV VMA's|
Did you watch 'em?
This won't be a long post, as I've got to put in some time on the WIP this morning before hitting the normal get-ready-for-work routine. Just wanted to let you guys know things have been a little strange and hectic in our household as of late, which is the main reason why you haven't seen a lot of posting here and the fanfiction hasn't been updated in, like, forever. But my husband and I are expecting our first child (12 weeks today!), and the adjustment has been far harder than I originally anticipated. I sleep A LOT--nap for 2+ hours in the evening, then sleep all night. However, my wonderful Doc tells me this should be subsiding within the next week-2 weeks. So, I should be up and running like normal soon, though I'm certain I'll have to play some catch-up first.
However, I've been reading quite a bit lately, though I did sneak in a few hours to watch the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, because I'm a sucker for live performances. Just finished Kristan Higgins' March 2011 release My One and Only. Wonderful characters and writing, as usual, though the plot seemed to be a trifle flawed at times. The heroine was strong and humorous, the hero sexy as all get-out. And the secondary characters added so much color, I really don't know that one could've been rightfully cut without taking away from the overall feel of the novel.
So, what have you been reading? Where's your bookmark? I'd love to pick up something new next trip to the bookstore!
Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,
P.S. As a treat, I figured I'd share my fave performance from the VMA's. It's Bruno Mars' rendition/tribute to Amy Winehouse's Valerie. Phenomenal. I so have a cougar crush on this kid. (By the way, this isn't the best recording; I'm sure MTV's having a field day ripping this stuff off YouTube as soon as it hits.)
