It has been a couple messed up days of late, probably all my fault. Had a good Wednesday out with the Daughter and her boyfriend. Did some karaoke, some drinking. Needless to say, that brought Thursday morning with my head hurting a bit. So Thursday dragged by. The Wife was feeling ill that afternoon, and ended up sleeping most of the afternoon and evening, though it was after doing a bit of shopping with the Daughter. With the Wife asleep, I forgot to get the trash cans out to the street, so missed the regular trash pick up, but think the recycle will be okay. The Wife happened to remember the trash but it was too late. Ended up taking a couple bags over to the MIL's as the trash pick up there is later in the morning than ours.
Soooo, that brings us to now. I have work tonight, so that means today is going to be pretty boring for me. I'll probably try to take a nap around mid-afternoon, so I won't be as tired tonight. Be drinking plenty of fluids today to be hydrated while sit out in the heat for the early part of the evening.
Weekend plans: Sunday early evening, way over in Scottsdale, there is an author signing I am looking forward to attending. Kevin Hearne, known for his Iron Druid Chronicles, is doing a 2-day pre-release party for the 6th book in the series. For $15 you get a copy of the book, get it signed, and a beer chit for the bar he is having the event at. The only part I don't care for is the 40 minute (approx.) drive to get there. Hoping I will be able to make it though, for the early release of the book, plus another signed edition is cool.
Have you ever gotten a book signed by the author? Do you still have it? Which book/author was it?
Edit: Reverend Mother would like to take this minute to remind everyone, that nothing is as bad as you think it is, and if you always think positive, some good will come of it. That being said, I was contacted this morning by an "unknown author" and offered the chance to read his ebook, in exchange for an honest review. When I started recently trying to do some sort of a review on the many books I have been reading (see mybadopinion.blogspot.com) I also send a copy of that review to Amazon and Goodreads, which is how this author found me. I know I need to work on my review writing technique, and at this time, it obviously is not going ot make me any money. But it is kind of cool that someone WANTS me to review their book! I just hope I like it, and will be able to say so in a review.
