WHAT I'M READING
I'm still not done with Coriolanus, but I think my reading slump is over! I did act on my own curiosity and start WE WERE LIARS, and I'm halfway through. The voice is superb! I'm really enjoying it.
WHAT I'M WRITING
Tinkering with that new project (figuring plot and such), which I hope I can start soon. It's a little mystery, a little poetry, kind of experimental, and it's a collaboration!
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
I think many of you have probably heard of this amazing in-the-works thing from Amtrak - Writer Residencies! There's something definitely romantic about trains and train-travel, and I would love to have a writing residency on one. It's also one of the few forms of transportation where I could probably do writing/reading without getting motion/airsick.

WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Rested up this weekend, but didn't get a chance to go through my camera pics of our UK-Paris trip. There are A LOT of pictures from the Harry Potter Studio Tour.
|Like this one of me in King's Cross!|
The Sister and I also got post-trip manicures to fix up the ones we chipped on vacation. Mine was neutral gray and neon pink. Hers was red tulips.
Also, Loki got his first professional grooming. He took it pretty well, especially for a first timer. I think it's because we give him a lot of baths. He's resigned to his fate.
It was awesome because he was SO SOFT afterwards, and he smelled like apples and vanilla!
The weekend marked my parents' birthdays (literally within days of each other), and my hometown's annual Camellia Festival - complete with small town parade and carnival.
AND I am ridiculously excited for Friday because it's the Season 2 premiere for NBC's HANNIBAL. That show is so disturbing, but I love it - the mood, the visuals, the acting. It's moody and poetic, surreal, somehow gruesome and gorgeous. I AM EXCITE! (Yep, we're fannibals around here - not Alz though.)
What's up with you?
