So, I haven't done much posting or commenting because I haven't been doing that much fandoming (possible word? WHO CARES). Work and various other RL things have taken precedence. Heck, I still haven't finished What's Up and that was like the one thing I was watching.

I gave the first two episodes of Wild Romance a shot but it didn't do anything for me. And after the fiasco of Flower Boy Ramyun Shop I'm not about to stick to a drama that I'm not hooked on. There is too much out there to waste time on something that doesn't click. Then I started History of a Salaryman, but was so beat when I was watching it that I drifted in and out of consciousness during the second episode. So, even though I liked it, I also have a mental block when it comes to picking it back up... because I FELL ASLEEP during it.

Book reading has been very slow, even though I told myself that I was going to read more this year. I still need to finish True Grit which I enjoy, but I also need to be in the right mood to read. I randomly picked up a YA ebook called Angelfall (yeah, I know... angels. But it was on $0.99!!!) and was pleasantly surprised with it. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Though I'm not keen on waiting. I'm all about coming into a series once it's done (Hunger Games!) or nearly (Leviathan!).

In less fun book news I'm reading The Land of Painted Caves the final (FINALLY) installment in Jean Auel's Earth's Children series (historical fiction set 30,000 years ago). She started writing them 30 odd years ago with Clan of the Cave Bear (A book that I still enjoy despite the precipitous drop in quality throughout the rest of the series) and is finally wrapping up this pile of dog poo.

Personally, I started the series early in high school when just the first four books were out. The first three are pretty good, but the series just got worse and more boring with each book. And now we're on the 6th book and there just isn't. any. plot. But I have to finish it. I'm about 2/3 of the way through the 800 pages and it is PAINFUL. If I have to read any more descriptions of cave paintings, the multitude of uses for cattails, or how strange Ayla's accent sounds... I can't be held responsible for my actions.
