SLEEPY

It's very grey outside, which is doing nothing for my mood. And it's Tuesday and I already skipped my morning workout. I'm fine with the skipping, I needed the sleep more than the swim. But I'm not loving the lack of energy. 

I know that on my lunch I will probably go to the gym and stretch and do something light and easy while watching TLC, which sounds like a pretty good time. After work, I'll go to the same indoor track I've been going every other day since January. I'll walk in the same door, see the same people sitting the same places. I'll do the run and socialize which will be fun. Then I will leave and go home, so I can go to bed. So I can get up in the morning and come back to work and do the same projects that I've been working on since January, so I can afford my gym memberships, so I can do the same things after work... 

I'm in a rut. 

And that's why I stayed up late last night reading a terrible book about fairies, telepaths, vampires, and werewolfs.

Which book? Sounds like a decent pick-me-up/snark material. :)

         I hope you get out of your rut soon. I know that feeling well.

 

Hmmmm Twilight didn't have fairies, I'm out of the loop with current vampire books. Now I am curious as to what you were reading.

It's not current. It's the Southern Vampire Mysteries (aka True Blood.)

I'm ashamed to be able to think of at least 3 book series like that, besides True Blood!

And, um, what might those be? For research purposes, of course.

Oh, it's super easy fluff read. The last few are starting to be a little repetitive, and I'm tired of reading about her serving sandwiches and changing her clothes and cleaning, but I really enjoy the world that was set up. It's kind of a crossover genre - vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, romance, humor.

Sorry, just saw this!  Kim Harrison's The Hollow's series.  Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series, Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files,  L.A. Banks does a great series, forgot the name.  Lilith Saintcrow has two amazing series, either of those is amazing!  Jeaniene Frost Cradle series is outstanding.  I love love love me some urban fantasy!  I'd recommend Saintcrow and Butcher's first, they're fun, exciting, varied and get deeper the further in you get.  Saintcrow uses females for her leads, as most of those others (save Butcher) do.

Speaking of The Dresden Chronicles, if you like audio books, James Marsters reads them.

And his narration is why I loathed the attempt to make the books into a tv series.  I think it was in lifetime.  I refused to accept whoever they cast as Harry because his voice was not James.

      But attractiveness can change over the years - what if your significant other gains weight, loses his hair, changes his features (e.g. gets wrinkles)? It happens. And then other things are more important for most people. So when I see couples out and about, I try not to judge how well they match just based on their looks. 

       Yes.  My husband went from a shaggy haired 160 pound 20 something to  over 300 pound, then down to 120, then back up again a whole slew of times in our marriage.  I loved him, no matter his looks.  After he died, and I started dating., I was working retail for a time.  There was couple who came in often.  She was about 5 2 and very heavy, had about 4 whisps of hair and about the same number of teeth.  he was about six two, and scrawny, and well, just not standardly attractive.  But he looked at her like she walked on water and she teased and played with him and they were just a delightful couple.  I decided then that was what I wanted in a relationship.  No matter the outside appearances, I want the fun times, the teasing and by golly, someone to look at me like he looked at her.

      And yeah, sorry not sorry, I prefer attractive looking couples and I want my S/O and I to look attractive together. Sue me.

      You do you.

      But then I’ve always been more attracted to intellect and personality than looks, so when I find someone attractive upon meeting and talking them, that doesn’t necessarily mean other people would find them attractive at all (or that I would find them attractive based on just a photo).

      Speaking of Dan Gryder....he has video in a recent YouTube of going to where all the grave sites are. He doesn't say where. Maybe it's common knowledge? I know there are no cemeteries in Brentwood.

      He really is a gross person who only cares about trying to get attention for himself. There is no way their graves are in a public location.  If I was the family I would report this to the police to find out if he was trespassing.  Dan gives off as many red flags as Joe.

      Chrissy Teigen and John Legend knew the sex of their babies because they were conceived via IVF - in that they had 2 viable embryos, male and female, and they chose to implant the female first (Luna) and then used the male when they went round again (Miles). There was a bit of a thing about it quite a few years ago. This article is quite interesting, and does make the point that there's a difference between having IVF for medical reasons and therefore knowing/choosing the sex of the implanted embryos; and having IVF in order to choose the sex.

      It's hardly Gattaca at this point but I do side-eye that second instance. Like what else about your child will you wish to control? What ideas do you have about gender or how a family 'should' be? When they start expressing preferences beyond your control, how will you feel? The best thing my daughter has done for me is confound my expectations. She's blown the things I thought I wanted right out of the water. I'm grateful for that dose of humility.

      Was he Dudley Do Right? One of the Howlers posted reviews using that moniker.

      Yeah, you are right, he was. I wonder if Juddy/Duddy/Duddley are all connecting nicknames.
