I'm a little worried about what kind of hits I'll get by putting that as my title, but what the heck, it's Friday! I woke up this morning with this song in my head. (Jen, Janna, and Turkey, I apologize for starting the CrackTube so early.)
(click the link, this post will make more sense that way.)
So apparently reading about vampires means I stop sleeping at night. I was very good yesterday and worked on my query and synopsis for five hours, then read a couple chapter from my Dreamweaver book before picking up the shiny black book. I figured I'd finish it by midnight, maybe 1am. Wrong again - 4am! Ugh.
I think my problem is unlike some of you skimmers out there, I tend to hover over particularly delicious phrases, rereading them until they are locked in my brain. I'm sure those of you who read it are thinking to yourselves, "Delicious phrases? All I saw were ridiculous adverbs and an abundance of sighing," but Stephenie Meyers sure knows how to build up sexual tension. For those of you who haven't read it, there's only minimal kissing; the rest is all build-up.
Where am I going with all this? Ummmm, let's just say suddenly I'm even more excited about my mom and sister arriving tomorrow because my sister has promised to wrestle New Moon (the second in the series) way from my niece. I'm not sure if I'll be able to wait until they leave to start reading. I also might have to ask her to bring all three of the books.
I need help.
The good news about my whacked out sleep schedule is I'll be able to stay up a little later with my sister. I'm sure we'll be going out and staying awake past 10pm is usually helpful when you have houseguests. :P
It's not that big of a deal, but my hits have passed 20,000! Woohoo!
