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.

      Gary says he promises them his 10-day-old grandbaby has already sinned.

      Little Ruthie, you deserve someone other than Gary for your grandpa-- he's a schtick dreck.

      We've managed to stabilize both cat and dog for now - I know it will be very soon but not today. Just like the rapture. 

      I'm so sorry. In the last 2 years I lost two animals that I was extremely attached to, so I know how terrible this feels. I even developed a stress-related cough because of it (I still have it. It's a lingering scar).

      Objecting to the photos taken by the FBI agents is such a blatant stall tactic. If prosecutors want to demonstrate similarities between Josh’s hands and a hand in a photo on his computer, they can easily take a new photo.

      Josh Duggar and prosecutors are battling over photos federal officials say show a hand scar matching images on the devices in his child-porn case (msn.com)

      "Prosecutors previously said the scar could also be seen in multiple images recovered from the devices that federal authorities seized from Duggar."

      Did  we know this, or did I just miss it. Josh's scar matches images seen on his devices?

      There are no allegations and no evidence Josh created/produced any CSAM. My understanding here is a picture of Josh's hand (with the scar) is on the same device used to download the CSAM. This device is Josh's, used by Josh (evidenced by the picture of his hand). The government has to prove it was Josh using the device, not just this was Josh's device. Josh could claim someone else was using the device. 

      Emily D Baker said while the CSAM is absolutely disturbing these are known images.
