  1. I liked your Mardi Gras panty story. If I’d of been with you, I probably would have laughed too. Laughed with you though, not at you. I don’t understand why a guy would have been throwing panties at girls. Usually guys have panties thrown at them, or at least that’s the case for rock stars. Read those books Ke-sha, I believe in you!!

  2. Ahh, Marci Grad. I lived in LA for almost 3 years and never went. I was happy to hear that we got the day off at work. 🙂 Sorry about those panties being thrown at you.

    Yeah buying ebooks are so addicting. I also follow a lot of authors on Twitter and I see their tweets and I want to support them. So I do and buy more books. Lol But like you I am reading them right away. Well a couple of them. Lol

    I know what you mean about reading a fave PIC and when you get to another’s you’re forcing yourself to read it to get through it. That’s how I am with Heir of Fire, the 3rd book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Mass. I mentioned on instagram that it will probably be my least fave book. Kind of reminds me of A Feast For Crows by George R. R. Martin, the fourth book in the ASOIAF series. It’s like these characters you don’t know but have to read because you want to finish the book. ugh Side note: I still haven’t finished AFFC. Lmao But I am going to finish HoF, if not today, definitely before the weekend is over.

    Oh yes, Forever. Love that show. #RenewForever I see you livetweeting it. Me too. (box5angel). I really do hope we get a second season. 

  3. Oh my gosh that parade story is insane! I don’t like going to those things lol but I live way up North now so they don’t really have them here. Good luck with your reading goals!

  4. I wasn’t expecting that panty story. I’ll be prepared next time I see Mardi Gras in the title!
    I’m rereading Sookie for the fourth time. I have a problem with that series.
