I think you should know:

  • I finished "19 Minutes" last night. Wow. Seriously, wow. Jodi Picoult is one extraordinary writer. Although the jumping of time frames and people makes it a little confusing to keep track of at times, it's still so good and I think that's what sort of makes it better. Unlike "My Sister's Keeper", I definitely did not see the twist at the end of this one coming at all. So all in all, I highly recommend this book. Just know it's sort of a tough subject (like all Jodi's books apparently) and may be a little rough to read at times, but definitely a good one. Next up on my reading agenda: "The Time Traveler's Wife."
  • I finally watched the season finale of Greek. Oh man. That show is so Dawsonesque now it's sort of ridiculous. But of course I still love it. And Spring Break? Who doesn't love an episode about Spring Break? I mean really. I wish I was going on Spring Break. And I loved how they actually involved something in the show that was basically "ripped from the headlines" a la Law and Order, haha. But I think the best part was the very end. I laughed out loud and can only imagine how the season premiere will begin.

  • Apparently my brain is mush before 10. I walked out of my house this morning without my car keys (nice job) and then bought a birthday present online for the fabulous Kiki and forgot to change the shipping address so it's coming to my house instead of hers! Ah!

  • I had a dream last night that I had lunch with Barack Obama. Don't really know what we talked about but we did the fist pump, and it was awesome.

  • The Lakers finally pulled out a win against the Celtics, making the series 2-1 now. And my Dodgers beat the Padres 7-2. Finally, LA sports teams are kicking ass (at least for a night).

  • My friend Liz, along with family from Hawaii are coming into town tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited! All the makings for a fabulously amazing long weekend :)

  • Today the all wonderful Charlie Conway aka Pacey Whitter aka Joshua Jackson turns 30! Happy Birthday Josh! Maybe for your birthday you should come by my job, it's a trendy spot. I'll buy you some birthday coffee! Or a cupcake! You have to want a cupcake, I mean that's amazing incentive right there. Anyhoo, hope you and Diane celebrate your birthday to the fullest!
    You rock! :)



happy wednesday!

Dreaming about Barack??

Welcome to my world!

molly said...

your obama dream sounds fantastic!

Lauren said...

Oh my god, i'd love to fist pump Obama. That's hilarious!

Glad you enjoyed 19 Minutes! I've been really interested in reading it. I read "The Tenth Circle" by her and it was...alright. I heard "My Sister's Keeper" and "19 Minutes" are much better, though. The subject IS tough to read about, but incredibly interesting. Since you enjoyed it, i'll definitely have to check it out.

Carrie said...

Awwww, Joshua Jackson is so adorable. I miss Dawson's Creek - a simpler time, when Katie Holmes was Joey Potter and not Tom Cruise's wife.

brookem said...

a little bird said...

What an awesome dream. I'm jealous. Next time you dream about him tell him I said "hi."

I loved 19 minutes and really enjoyed Time Traveler's Wife. The only book I haven't like by Jodi Picoult is Plain Truth.

I read "The Time Traveler's Wife" about 4 years ago...it's a beautiful love story but a little...ummmm weird I think...you'll get it ;o)

"...All the makings for a fabulously amazing long weekend :)"

Could it BE any other kind? lol

Auburn Kat said...

Happy Birthday to Joshua! Hope he stopped by to see you! Seriously, who doesn't want a cupcake?

I bought 19 Mintues awhile ago but haven't read it yet. I've also wanted to read the Time Traveler's Wife.

Mama's Losin' It said...

I'm totally giving you a shout out tomorrow morning!!

Cara said...

Nineteen Minutes is one of her best. My favorite is probably Perfect Match, and the newest one - Change of Heart - is really intense. Dang.

In case you haven't heard yet, Joshua Jackson has a new show coming this fall on FOX. Apparently he plays the estranged son of a doctor known as our generation's Einstein. I saw the "trailer," if you can call it that, and he looks just as beautiful as ever! :)

La Petite Chic said...

Ahh, you totally made me miss Dawson's Creek right then and there.

L Sass said...

I want to fist bump Obama!

Although, isn't it bizarre how much press that has gotten?

Lexiloo said...

19 Minutes was SO good, and I was NOT expecting that twist at the end! I met her a few months ago, when she was here in DC doing a book tour for the new one, Change of Heart, which I liked less then some of her others, mainly 19 Minutes, actually. That is probably my favorite of hers.

I have Time Travelers Wife, but have not read it yet...

Vanessa said...

I've been meaning to read 19 Minutes. Thanks for the mini review!

Larissa said...

I would pay money to fist bump with Barack. Sooo cool.

Kristen said...

19min is on my TBR list. I havent ready any of her books. I may have to bump it up because I have heard so many great things.

Amanda. said...

The Time Travelers Wife
is a great book.
One of my faves!
And it doesn't hurt
that Rachel McAdams and
Eric Bana are starring
in the movie. Holla.

I love me some Pacey Witter.
He is simply the cutest!
Loved him all the way
back in his days as Charlie.
Quack Quack.

"19 Minutes"...I *still* need to finish it, i've been reading it for like a year!

I'd LOVE to talk to Barack. I went to a speech he gave down here, and it was interesting (i'm a repub). I may still vote for him, we'll see!
