I seem to have stopped making new recipes. Shrug. But I'm pretty into Twitter lately: @lilgrl
And I'm almost ready to unveil my new karaoke repertoire. It's like 100 percent classic rock, instead of 100 percent 80s pop. Who knew.
Here's what I watched and read, though:
The Girl With the Dragon TattooWell, this was a pleasant mix of "Jungle Book" and CSI: Sweden. Now I don't have to read the books like everyone else in the world.
Super Sad True Love Story: A Novel by Gary Shteyngart: I'm super in love with Gary Shteyngart right now. I wish I could just hand pick people who need to read it. (Futbol, I'm looking at you).
There is a lot, a lot going on in this super delicious novel. It’s like one of those movies you would have to see six times to notice every nuance to fully appreciate. It is funny, and sweet, and also a little scary for its proximity to now, a world where everyday we put our lives in danger by text messaging while crossing the street. Where a thought isn’t just a thought, it’s a status update, and books with pages are being phased out in popularity for their e-counterparts. It’s a real thinker on a lot of levels: Political, social, communication and even the role of those stinky novels we like so much.
Full review here.
