NOT the cake I made... See the recipe for it here.
So, a whole week happened, huh? What exactly happened I can't remember because, let's face it, it's Sunday and I am therefore good for nothing. And this Sunday is my papa's birthday, so happy birthday to him! I have, of course, made him a cake (it's a funfetti cake and I only discovered the existence of such a glorious thing a month or so ago and OBViously I had to make one!) and that promises to be the absolute highlight of the day! False modesty never did anyone any good.
But! There was a whole week before today, and stuff happened in it. Not a lot of stuff, admittedly, but I did manage to make my mum drive me to a local-ish mecca of charity shops to look for books, and well, I obviously bought some! I got one of the few remaining Bill Bryson books that I didn't already have, and I also got two of the fattest books, which I really want to read, and yet may never because they're just too massive (The Corrections and Infinite Jest, if you're interested, which you obviously are because this is primarily a book blog!) And yeah- I finally finished all the seasons of Breaking Bad, and I watched everyone on Twitter doing the Bout of Books Readathon jealously (I'm probably going to do the next one, because it seems SO fun!) and also wrote like 3 blog posts in a day, which I've been doing more and more recently which is weird. Like... I save them up or something until I have nothing to post, and then write loads in one go. It's one way to do things, I suppose, and it works for me, so whatevs, I'm not going to think about it too much!
Also in blog world this week I've been doing some blogging admin (this is what I call the boring but necessary things) basically in the form of pinning all my reviews of things to Pinterest. Have we talked about Pinterest before? I really like it, just as a way of keeping interesting things I've found on the internet in one place, and also to look at pretty things that other people have found. I mean, sometimes I don't have the energy for it, but mostly I just find it useful. So, hey, follow me here if you're on it too and we can be Pin Friends! (note: we don't have to call it pin friends. We can call it something much cooler.) ANYWAY, so I've been pinning relevant posts on there because I feel like there are just hundreds of people calling out for book reviews of not even newly released books. I just like feel it, ok? To do this, I've basically been going through my entire blog, and if you've never done this before, may I highly recommend it? I mean, really- there are LOADS of things on here that I'd forgotten about, like videos of Daniel Day Lewis licking necks; AND I wasn't even as embarrassed of my old writing as I thought I would be. I literally used to cringe every time I hit the 'Publish Post' button, but now I'm kind of like... No, I did ok!
Back in the real world... Yesterday was fun because it was basically an extension of my birthday- my sister bought me a theatre ticket as a present and the show was yesterday and yeah, we went! I'm sure there was a more concise way to say that, but I'm pretty tired! Anyway, we did a bit of shopping and had pizza for dinner and then went to see Legally Blonde: The Musical. I should say, firstly, that I'm kind of morally opposed to turning things that are already things into musicals (it's like, get some ideas of your own, you know?) BUT Legally Blonde was actually pretty good and retained the essence of the movie whilst also being unique in a few ways that were interesting and fun. So yeah, I liked it! Definitely the highlight day of my week, I'd have to say.
And basically, that's about it. Can't really grumble about any of the week, especially considering that I didn't have to go near a hospital or a chemists or even the doctor's surgery even once! Always a plus in my world!
