My Friday Five...

1.  Cold weather hit South Florida this week and I was in bliss. I just loved it. It was such a nice change from the usual humidity and heat. Of course, it meant that we had iguana warnings on the news. Yep, we had to watch out for falling iguanas. Apparently the cold weather stuns them and they become immobile. They showed footage of iguanas littering the streets and sidewalks. How crazy!

2.  Books.  I've finally gotten over my reading funk and have been devouring books like crazy. Woo hoo! Here are a few I've recently read:

3.  TV Shows. Housewives. Yep, I'm still watching Housewives and right now I'm hooked on Jersey. Its beyond ridiculous this year, but I am enjoying watching. This last episode the women heard the awful way Joe speaks to Teresa, which had them all feeling badly for her. Jennifer called Jackie stingy, because she didn't throw her kids a lavish birthday party. Yeah, apparently, Jackie is really rich and now Jennifer is impressed by her (sort of).  Things got heated at lunch and Melissa looked like she was going to thrown down with Jennifer. Crazy!! I keep bookmarking shows on Netflix and not watching them. I do plan on seeing the Taylor Swift movie coming out next week, Miss Americana.

4.  My next read is:

5.  Music.  Vampire Weekend. I am obsessed with listening to Ezra Koenig sing Harmony Hall at Live From Here with Chris Thile. Love, love, love.


Hope you all are staying warm and ready to enjoy a relaxing weekend. Happy reading!!

We had cold weather, too, but, thankfully, no falling iguanas.

How's the new Paris book?

Lark said...

Falling iguanas...that's kind of awesome! :D

Kathy, you're lucky :) As for the new Paris book, it was good, but seemed to drag on a bit. I think its because of the plot idea that the book needed to be shorter. Plus, its pretty predictable. I think I enjoyed it, because I was just in the mood for a quick read.

Lark, I know right? They looked like little dinosaurs, which was pretty creepy. LOL!

Falling iguanas is the craziest thing I've heard about today. I remember reading about something similar falling from the skies and thinking this was a sign of the world going to end. Could be true with these iguanas falling too but I'm glad to read a scientific explanation. Have you seen any fall yet?

Yay that you are out of your reading rut!

A Bookish Way of Life said...

Athira, I know, right? How can that thought not cross your mind, especially with the way the world is lately. Its crazy! No, I only saw them on video on the news. They were just scattered all around the ground, like they had been stunned. It was so weird to see.

This instinct is so built-in to a man's mind that it will make him try harder than before to take care of you.

As a matter of fact, triggering this mighty instinct is absolutely binding to achieving the best ever relationship with your man that the second you send your man one of the "Secret Signals"...
