My poor blog is so neglected – as is anyone left reading this. I apologize!
The thing is I can’t tell if I’m sorry about it or not. I know I miss it on one level but on another I’m just too busy and lazy and disinterested to care. Sometimes I feel like blogging about things going on (which is a lot and some of it rather oddball and funny) but then I remember this is an m/m book review blog, but at the same time it’s my blog. I love this little corner.
So what I’m thinking is I’m going to just talk about what I want and if it includes a book review, than great.
Here are the current things going on that I’m obsessed with (or yanno just spending all my time on, same difference).
This is my dog Amber, a 65 lb lab/shepard mix. I love her to pieces and I’m a die hard cat person. Amberlicious took a bit to grow on me as my lovely boyfriend showed up with her out of the blue after we’d been dating only a few months. Of course he hadn’t thought ahead about logistics and oh, where would the dog live, and unsurprisingly Amber moved in with me in short order. We had to come to terms with each other – both of us wanting my boyfriend’s time, attention, and affection the most.
But now almost a year later Amber and I are pretty close. So much so my boyfriend is jealous. It took a bit for both of us but I adore this insane, highly energetic, very destructive chewer and she rather likes me – I’m not ashamed to bribe her with the best treats. She takes an incredible amount of time and care and money in toys that last mere minutes, but I’m shocked to say she’s worth it.
It means there can be no break up though, ever. I worked hard to love a dog and I’m not doing this again.
This is my lovely torture device! I promised I’d buy a bike this summer and since I made said promise over a year ago I figured it’d been forgotten by all, me included. Sadly not so and off to the bike shop we went. I ended up with this beauty. I wanted the red/silver one that looked more sleek and less “pink.” However that wasn’t to be. Instead I got this one that I do kind of like. I’m not in love with it yet, despite how often I’m told what a good bike I have, but I’m enjoying it.
What is killing me is the 20 mile bike rides from the start. My ass may never recover from this decision.
I’m sure most people already own one of these or they do it the old fashioned way. It’s not a revolutionary machine but you’d think it was if you lived with me. I love my panini maker. I use it constantly. I make sandwiches I don’t even want to eat just so I can use it. I bought 2 different panini cookbooks and realized that veggie options really aren’t that creative. Hell a monkey could do this but it still pleases me to no end that I get to make these. The up side is the sandwiches I make are very good and suffice on my nights to cook.
