Ugh, ladies. Its been a frustrating year for me. The main reason Ive been so spotty here is my current client has kept me busy and frustrated. I signed an NDA, so I can't chat to what I'm doing, but lets just say the pay schedule has destroyed my budget. As in, I can't make one because I'm paid...
Oh, that's a shame, because the premise is so interesting!
I've read The Handmaid's Tale multiple times, and I HATE first person narratives. I will say this, the tv show didn't push as hard as the book did, and the show did two things that I found laughable, it made the women more an enemy to...
American Gods, which I wanted to like a lot more than I did. I found the story really slow, Shadow lacking, and I figured out a good chunk of the "mystery" about half way through. I have other extensive thoughts on the book, but over all aside from the lavish descriptions, I found it kinda boring.
My first time.
I gotta say, I think it's because the ideas of this book are so engrained in modern society, that I am finding this a rather lackluster read. I would read a book about the Ministries and the philosophies of New Speak all day long, but Winston is an annoying protagonist.
It's a film a lot of people are not going to get. I thought it was something but its a screaming commentary on how hard it is to listen to women when they say they need help.
For me, just when I thought some things were coming together, I get news that a job I'm doing is getting cut back, and two clients I have need revisions on their jobs. Ugh!
I've come to realize that feeling good and being optimistic, hurts.
Ive tried a couple in their Bomb series. I find Birthday Bomb nearly undrinkable, as my threshold for stouts from 1-10, goes to about an 8, and that was easily an 11. Same for Dragon's Milk, which I almost rained poured. But stouts are one of my, if not my favorite styles, so long as they are...
I'm kinda a beer snob. My friend and I Started a lady's beer drinking group last year, so we got a lot to talk about.
My favorite breweries currently are Epic, Allagash, and Prairie Artisan Ales (I'll drink anything they make).
Tonight I'm having Son of the Baptist, one of Epic's "Baptist"...
I hope your kid-worker gets better, Lizzie.
I just finished organizing my hall closet and I feel so clean having done so. Freed up a lot of space. Was going to give the dog a bath, but I decided I needed one instead ;)
