Happy Fathers' Day to all the wonderful dads out there, and especially to my darling dad who I miss so much!
I just woke up bleary-eyed some time back. Though it's past 10 am, Sundays are usually sleep-in days for me. Moreover, I sat up late night reading Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld with Kai of Fiction State of Mind. I LOVED Leviathan and also enjoyed reading it with Kai and tweeting about it. This is the first time I did a read and tweet along with someone, and it was so much fun, I can't wait to do it again! That Kai is in CA and I am in VA, only made it so much more novel.
Our apartment complex had a power-cut last night for close to two hours during a nasty and sudden thunderstorm. It was quite annoying, but luckily I had just finished cooking for dinner, so all I had to do was sit near the patio, stare outside and eat. I would have enjoyed it more if I was not stuck right in the middle of a suspenseful scene in Leviathan, when the power-cut happened. (You know that feeling, right?) Last time this happened, the power didn't come back on until the next day. That was in 2008. Luckily, it wasn't that bad this time. I spent most of the time listening to the 9th (out of 12) disc of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Lifesaver, indeed!
After a fantastic weekend in DC (I blogged about it here), I spent most of last week catching up on my sleep and trying yet failing to get back to graduate work. I finally managed that on Thursday, but by then the next weekend excitement kicks in! So I can't say I accomplished much. I'm spending today to type up all my reviews, so that I don't have to do much of that this week. We'll see how that goes. Since I missed out on Bloggiesta, I may spend next weekend making some cosmetic changes to my blog, depending on how well my week goes. Then again, I may lazy out and shelve that task. There's a reason why we do it as a community!
Hope your Sunday is going great! Happy reading and happy blogging!
