What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme geared toward readers and writers, allowing us to touch base with blog friends and let them know what’s up. Should you wish to join us, you will find the link widget at the bottom of Jaime’s post. We really hope you will take part!
What I’m Reading
Last week I read The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. I loved it (I read it in two sittings), but felt like the ending wrapped things up a little too neatly. Now I’m reading Pivot Point by Kasie West, which is entertaining, although I probably won’t be gushing about it like a lot of people did.
What I’m Writing
A lot of sub notes? I spent most of last week asleep because I was sick, so that’s pretty much it. Except for the 450 words I wrote yesterday! That was exciting.
What Inspires Me
The Seahawks won the Super Bowl! I’d expected a game that was actually, you know, a game (me and everyone else…), but it was awesome to see all of our guys doing so well, especially since so many of them were players everyone else underestimated because they didn’t fit some preconceived notion of what a “great” NFL player is supposed to be.
Also, Russell Wilson’s whole “Why not us?” philosophy? Love it.
What Else I’m Up To
Like I said, I spent most of last week asleep. I dragged myself through work Sunday-Tuesday in a DayQuil-induced haze, and then when I got home Tuesday afternoon, I didn’t leave my house again until work on Saturday.
Fortunately I was feeling better on Sunday, since we were hosting a Super Bowl party! I didn’t take many pictures since there wasn’t any time between all the touchdowns, but my roommate did make sure she got this one:
Fortunately, I never needed to use the chair because I behaved myself the entire game 🙂
