The above photo is one of many courtesy of Go Dog LA showing Jake during his boarding stay. It has nothing to do with this post; I just like leading off with an interesting photo.
Actually, this post has nothing to do with anything. I haven’t been blogging much, but tonight though, I wanted to jot some thoughts down. In no particular order:
I just finished Gone Girl, the hot novel of the past year or so. I’m not sure if I like it. I stumbled across a list on goodreads titled “Top Books of the Summer” (more or less) and noticed that I’ve read all of the top 3 recently: Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars and now, Gone Girl. I didn’t find any of them all that exciting. I’m eager for The Winds of Winter and the next book in the Angelfall series. Also, I think the trilogy for The Passage should be wrapping up next year.
I made Anna Thomas’ Green Soup tonight after seeing it in an issue of Reader’s Digest earlier this year. I used kale instead of chard, and added nearly an entire head of garlic. I also used A LOT of cayenne pepper. Like everyone who has made it, I like it! It has potential for a lot of yummy variations and would be delicious with some cilantro, crumbled bacon or melted cheddar. I love how versatile and healthy it is, yet it tastes creamy and savory.
We are already talking about the holiday season at work. I have created several brainstorming/planning docs. Egads.
According to my online check-in history, I was last at the gym on July 3rd. Not good, though not horrible.
When my site was down for several months there in 2012, I lost most of my Google rankings (as I expected). I no longer rank #1 for “vuthy”—a male swimwear company now does!
Uncured bacon < cured bacon.
I expected a lot of laughs from Zack and Miri Make a Porno. I laughed at something Justin Long’s character said, and that was it. The movie was painful to watch.
Going to the Dodgers – Red Sox game Saturday!!
Alright, this should hold me over for a bit. Time to join Jake in bed!
