you're hawkguy. eye?

FEELING: Tired? Meh? It’s like I’m just sort of going along getting things done and then turning off when I get home. Also frustrated because TOO MANY people here call me Erin rather than Erini. My name is Erini.

WATCHING: Criminal Minds. Although I keep wanting to call it BAU, because all crime dramas are done in acronyms. I love Reid and Morgan. Although, I’ve got to admit, marathoning shows about serial killers should be done with caution, depending on your imagination and its impressionability.

LISTENING TO: NPR. Songza’s “Walking on Sunshine” or “In Need of a Hug” playlists. The former is full of just upbeat songs, ranging decades but not much if any current pop. Songs that make you want to bob your head, tap your toes, or just plain dance. The later is more mellow, “intimate and nocturnal” (according to the description). They don’t make me feel sad or lonely, though. Quixotic, maybe? I don’t know. I just know it’s perfect for life’s more somber moments.

READING: The Maze Runner. My niece brought over the dvd, and afterward I decided since I already owned the book, maybe I should give it a go. It’s been a easy read so far. I also started The Golem and The Jinni. It’s another that’s been on my TBR list for a while. I’m enjoying it, but haven’t gotten completely hooked yet.

WORKING ON: Finishing my last summer class. Ends on the 17th. I’ve got a good number of papers to catch up on, and all the exams. So we know what I’ll be doing this weekend.

THINKING ABOUT: Chicago. I would have thought I would have visited at least once by now… I just don’t want to feel like I’ve been forgotten. I miss my friends there. They were my family. I just don’t want that chapter to be over. (And I realize it doesn’t have to be. I’m just homesick.)

CRAVING: Soft pretzels and cheese. It’s all I can really think about. So much that I’ve been tempted to order pizza just for the pretzel crust.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: Sleeping. Rest. I’m hoping I can keep ahead of things at work enough that I might be able to take a bit of a vacation. Not that I know where I would go or anything, but I just want to go do something fun and just for me.

MAKING ME HAPPY: Cats feeling better. Silly niece-baby-twins. 9-hour streams with TJ. And sleep.

    I love a good Criminal Minds marathon! It’s only 2nd to a SVU one!

  • Question re: Maze Runner: Which is better, book or movie? I watched the movie last week and was kinda meh despite my inappropriate crush on Dylan O’Bryan. I’m assuming the book is better paced?

    • Each had their own good points… and meh points. I think I’m going to do a review on it all soon. (And I just finished book 3!)

    Man I could go for a soft pretzel right now. Did you enjoy The Maze Runner (book or movie)? I really enjoyed the book until the end, which I though was a bit dumb and unsatisfying. :/ Can’t decide if I want to read more in the series or not?

    • I chose to keep reading. It’s been a pretty easy read and the books were $5 or less on Kindle.

  • I’m sorry everyone’s been calling you Erin! My name is Angela / Angie, and yet people call me Ann. -_-; I think off and on about Chicago, ’cause I used to live in La Grange Highlands, and while I definitely don’t miss the time spent there (my personal time, I mean), there are nostalgic moments, and I’d love to take Jen to different places there.

    Soft pretzels and cheese, all the yes.

    YAY for all the happiness!

    I had the pull to do a Currently list today too. I’m glad I got the chance to read yours. Yay Currently lists!
