Today’s post is a bit of a grab bag (I know the term is “mixed bag,” but I really wanted to work in a Mario Party 2 reference) because I
couldn’t force myself to sit through honestly didn’t even try to watch ANTM last week. What sense does recapping a recap episode make anyway? So, no America’s Next Top Model Cycle 21 today. In place, assorted thoughts.
I’ve been really sick and slept 5 days knocked out in bed, which was awful. What makes it more awful, is that I’m completely in a Netflix rut. Gilmore Girls may be occupying everyone else’s time, but I had just rewatched the series when Netflix announced its imminence. So guys, my plea: recommend me shows on Netflix or Hulu! The only thing that I’ve been loving lately is Drunk History, which I can whole-heartedly recommend to you. You feel like you’re learning history, and you also feel slightly inebriated. You know when you’re around a drunk person, or like, a group of drunk people, so you kind of start to feel drunk by association? That’s kind of what it’s like to watch Drunk History. Also, there were times I laughed so hard I cried, like this clip from a story about Abraham Lincoln as a lawyer.
no dust jacket because I couldn’t get the B&B “Members Save” sticker off of it and I broke my nail when I tried.
Anyway, what has been occupying my waking time is the new books I braved Boston’s first snow of the season to go out and pick up– “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler and “Grace’s Guide” by Grace Helbig.
I’m almost finished with Yes Please, and it’s finally gotten me out of the reading slump I’ve been in without beach time! After all my summer reading I kind of gave up come fall, so it was nice to get back into a book. Has anyone read “Grace’s Guide” yet? I’ve read snippets, and I just know it’s going to be great.
My recommendations to you: Drunk History & Yes Please!
Your recommendations to me: leave ’em in the comments!
