This is not the summer I imaged in April! I had imagined Craig and I lounging at twin lakes recreational area by day followed by twilight tennis matches at oakland park.
Instead all Craig does is read, it is so fucking annoying. I have to basically beg to get him to even put his book down, and when he does it is only for a few minutes. I don't have a problem with him reading he has just gone overboard with it. For example it is beautiful outside right now, and what is he doing....? He is laying on the couch, READING!
In other news we saw Elf Power last week and The Narrator last night. Alright shows.
!!! is coming later on this month, that is going to be a fun show.
In book club news I finally finished my first book: David Sedaris's new book "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim." I actually read this book in about 10 hours because I had already read several of the stories in GQ. This is not his strongest book overall but it does include some stories that I believe are some of the best he has ever written. Chicken in the Henhouse is one of these exceptional stories. Also some of these stories have a different feel than typical Sedaris stories because they address current events. Overall a good book and I would recommend it.
Right now I am working on "Speaking with the Angel" which is edited by Nick Hornby. It is a collection of stories from hot American and English authors: Dave Eggers, Helen Fielding, Robert Harris, Melissa Bank, Zadie Smith, Roddy Doyle, Irvine Welsh, Colin Firth, and Nick Hornby to name a few of the authors included.
Next up "Running With Scissors" or "Drop City" if it gets here anytime soon.
