you know that wall you hit when there's so much going on in the news that you just want to hibernate and watch Battlestar Galactica and Dr. Who all weekend?
well, i've hit it. i've crashed into it and it has given me a headache. i have no idea what's going on in pennsylvania, have almost lost all interest in our political shenanigans and, frankly, if someone told me the moon exploded and killed hillary clinton or barak obama i'd sort of shrug.
instead, i've been spending my time doing things that i really like: hanging out on a friend's back porch, drinking beer, petting her dog and catching up on what's going on; shooting pool in a tiny neighborhood bar with maybe a new friend; enthusiastically writing the crappiest first draft of a romance novel ever, reading comic books like Scalped and Mouseguard; going on a few dates (shrug) and watching the days slowly stretch themselves longer as we leave winter behind and impatiently wait for summer.
(chicago has decided to skip spring entirely, this year.)
so let's hear it.
what are you all up to while the days get warmer?
some things i'm reading this morning:
