Books I Read:
Rather than try to put succinctly enough so you’ll read it, I decided to just put links to the reviews I wrote on goodreads. Right here on the blog I can just put a yay, nay, or may.
Margaret Bourke-White. Super Yay.
St. Lucy’s School for Girls Raised by Wolves. May.
Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. Yay.
Starting Lye in Wait. First couple pages?
Cloudspotter’s Book. Yay.
So I didn’t read as many books this month. I’m not sure how I feel about this. But I do feel that I need to step up my game here.
Donations to Charity:
I made a donation to PBS. You should too. Big Bird can’t live off handout birdseed.
Technically I didn’t donate anything but time for this one, but I wrote letters to my representatives asking them to support the National Endowment for the Arts. Because why the eff not? I sat down and printed off some letters, and for the cost of 3 stamps I sent off some good karma and hey, maybe some aid will read them and think about it for a while.
I renewed my rec center pass, went to an awesome diner, celebrated the World Cup and Bastille Day, all within a week of each other. Last July rocked.
Well, I did my taxes last month, and so I received a big ol’ check from Uncle Sam. Well, not too big. Big enough that I am breathing a sigh of relief because without it, a swell vacation this year would have been non-existent.
I also am in the process of switching my auto insurance. I did a little shopping around online and found out that I am paying more or less double what I should be. Which floored me. I was so enraged with my insurance I contemplated marching to my agent’s office and spitting on him. But instead, I’m going to save my money with another company, and save my spit for, well, the ground, that doesn’t press charges.
