Monk Nature

End of my birthday weekend

Mike and I took off out of Rochester in the morning after breakfast at the hotel (the whole breakfast-with-Adam's-family thing didn't work out). We stopped for gasoline and chocolate milk and then we were on our way to CANADA! Woo! Driving/Border Crossing/Getting to Niagara-On-The-Lake was all very simple and easy. I exchanged about $60 US at the border (I was very close to what I needed!).
Went directly to the Shaw Festival Theatre to pick up our tickets (I was so afraid we'd lose our seats) when we got to town. The tickets had *just* been printed and weren't even divided into the little roledex thingy yet. lol. I think it was about 11:30. Show @ 2, doors at 1:30. So we had some time to kill. We drove around Niagara-On-The-Lake until we found a un-regulated parking space in the shade. It was about 2 blocks off the main street and then about 7 blocks down to where the theatre was. Nice location, no flat fee, no worrying about meters, no getting towed/having to pay large fines. All very dandy.

what I was really going to write before I felt obligated to the blogging gods to write the last post

wow. lj subjects have a length restriction. good to know.

anyway, I have pretty much been a slug since I got back from vaca. I need to finish cleaning up my room so I can finish moving my furniture around! Bah! But instead, my computer calls me like a siren and I am doing nothing productive really for hours on end. Well, productive, but not physically productive. Like, all my music is re-organized, I ripped some of the CDs I got recently (Rent, Fiddler on the Roof, New Kids on the Block: Step by Step, Bobby Darin's greatest hits, the Breakfast Club Soundtrack), and deleted a lot of stuff I wasn't using or had duplicate copies of for some reason. I think I freed up multiple gigs. woo.

I recently got The DaVinci Code. I started reading it on Sunday and I am really getting into it. Definitely a scientific-religion-thriller. I used to be into those! I'm really ripping through it. I was up late last night reading and then I couldn't fall asleep because the part where I finally made myself stop was a scary part. :-P

I just double checked. This will be the first book I have read this YEAR! It is June! =-O This is serious. Reading used to be my only hobby. Then it was second only to mild computer amusements. Now it is at the bottom of the bottom of the list. There was a time about 9 months ago, that I could not get into anything I picked up and that is probably when I stopped reading. In fact, the last book I read was maybe the 6th Harry Potter book... last summer? Yikes. Hopefully now I can get back into the swing of things. I should join the summer reading club when I am at the library this week. That would keep me motivated.

Recommend books and authors! And things that are out in paperback! :-)
