Weekend Update

Welcome to the weekend before the Oscars! I’m going to spend most nights this week seeing Best Picture nominees; so far, I’ve only seen Black Panther and BlacKkKlansman.

I’m currently reading the new Jeff Zentner and it’s amazing! It may end up being my favorite of his and that’s the highest praise I can give.

AND I just started listening to a new true crime podcast, RedHanded. It’s similar to My Favorite Murder (crime! Banter!) but they research better and there’s some overlap but not much.

Meanwhile, I keep feeling like I’m coming down with something. I may see Happy Death Day 2U but I am going to focus on sleep.

Weekend Update

WHAT I’M READING: I’m currently on a bit of a book vacation, so my next few books are The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali, Two Can Keep a Secret and The Kiss Quotient. I’ve just started Rukhsana Ali but I like it so far.

WHAT I’M WATCHING: I’m still not doing great at watching movies but I hope to get back to that soon. I have OscarPass soon, but I also am very excited to see Happy Death Day 2U; I loved the first one so much.

This time last week, I was so excited to see My Favorite Murder, and it was even better than I expected. If you have a chance to see them live, I recommend it. I am definitely going the next time they return to Baltimore. They posted the Baltimore show Thursday morning, so you can also enjoy it. Some of the loud screams at the beginning and the end were definitely mine.

My Favorite Murder (!!!!!!)

So last night, I went to go see My Favorite Murder here in Baltimore. It was the best night of my life.

I went by myself, because my two best local friends are not only NOT Murderinos, they would probably take Karen up on it when she says that if you’re not into true crime and dark humor, “you should get the fuck out right now.” I have great friends and they would go if I asked them to, but I knew I would have more fun without worrying that they were hating it. (Because, you guys? THEY WOULD HATE IT.)

So. I was guessing that one of them would do Joe Metheny (and if you don’t know about it, don’t Google him; he is deeply disturbing) and I was wrong. Karen did the Baltimore plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln* and Georgia did the murder of Carolyn Wasilewski, which kind of inspired the movie Crybaby.

So even that would have been great enough. But then they said they had a surprise. They each read parts of their upcoming book (out in May and yes, of course I have already preordered it) and I am very, very excited to read it.

If you have a chance to see them live, absolutely do it. It was so fun and funny and I am so glad I went. I can’t wait to hear about Saturday’s show in DC.

Weekend Update

This is going to be one of the best weekends in a while. Tonight I’m seeing My Favorite Murder (!!!!!!!!) and you’ll read my recap of it tomorrow morning. I have been waiting for months to see Karen and Georgia live and it is finally here and it is 12 hours away and I am full of joy.

CURRENTLY READING: Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. I’ve been in a reading slump lately (I’ve started and put down so many books!) so I decided to try this one to see if it it would stick. It’s actually out in May, so I completely skipped my usual “read in order of release” rule. I’m loving it, though; it’s sweet and funny and hot and a definite contender for “Favorite Book in 2019.”

CURRENTLY WATCHING: A lot of Good Place reruns. I need to get back to Friday Night Lights and I have two unwatched episodes of The Passage, but I’m just binging The Good Place over and over.

I also haven’t seen any movies since I watched Love, Gilda earlier this year. I’m doing OscarPass, so that’ll change soon.

OscarPass (year two)

I’ve decided that I’m going to do OscarPass again, and I’m trying to figure out the best way to do it.

Roma isn’t going to play near me, which sucks. But I have Netflix, so I’ll watch that during that week, too. (It’s Feb. 18-24.)

The shorts will have the documentary ones, too. I wasn’t a huge fan last year, but I’m trying again because a lot of them look really interesting. BUT I’m pretty sure I’ll also be in the theater for basically four or five hours just for those.

The unfortunate thing is that most movies are only showing twice, so it makes it a lot harder to see everything. (But not for me, because I took most of that week off work.)

I’m not sure if I will do a summary the morning after or if I’ll do a big recap (which is what I did last year). Either way, I’m starting to get really excited to see all of the best picture nominees. So far, I’ve only seen Black Panther and BlacKkKlansman but I loved both. I’m also hoping to see The Wife (I hope this is Glenn Close’s year!).

 

Weekend Update

This is going to be one of the busiest weekends I’ve had in a while, and it’s all good things.

Tomorrow is book club (we’re discussing Circe) and Sunday, I’m having an early dinner with friends and then it’s the SAG awards! I’m excited to see if the award show trends continue with them; they’re one of the shows I take most seriously.

I’m hoping to see If Beale Street Could Talk and Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse soon, but I’m not sure if that will happen this weekend (probably not). I’m also hoping to watch this week’s episode of The Passage (I was into the pilot, although it seems like that may be because I don’t remember the book that well and I didn’t read the other two).

I just started the new Kasie West (out Feb. 5) and it’s fun so far. I love her books, and I’m in the mood for something fun.

There isn’t much else going on.

Life Update

I’m currently reading Circe, which I love. I’m reading it for my book club and I was a little hesitant (mythology and fantasy elements aren’t really my thing and the story seemed a little…much), but I’m absolutely loving it and I was so wrong. If you haven’t read Circe yet either, I strongly recommend it. I should finish it today sometime, so look for my review tomorrow.

I’d also been starting and stopping a lot of books over the weekend (basically every end of January book I had for review, because I read and loved For Alison and The Dreamers so much, and every book seemed less amazing than they were). I’m glad Circe snapped me out of that but God only knows what the February books will bring. (Well, the first one is On the Come Up by Angie C. Thomas, so I know I’ll love that.)

I also just started watching Good Trouble, and I really enjoy that. Freeform has aired two episodes so far and I’m liking it. I never watched The Fosters (it’s a spinoff from that) but that hasn’t been a problem so far.

I’m also almost done with the first season of Friday Night Lights and I’m mad I waited so long to watch. (YOU WERE RIGHT, TYLER.)

I need to start going to the movies again because I really miss it. Maybe I’ll see Glass soon.

Weekend Update!

Welcome to the last Weekend Update of 2018!

What I’m reading: I just started Why We Lie by Amy Impellizzeri. It’s not out until March, but I’ve heard amazing things and I didn’t want to wait. It’s great so far but again, just started.

What I’m watching: I’m binging Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House this weekend and I also hope to watch Bird Box.

My New Year’s plans are very simple: Work from home, watch Friday Night Lights, asleep by 10. I’m very excited. (Why yes, I AM very fun at parties; why do you ask?)
