Which waaaay back in March I was like 'I'm going to read under that!' and then NEVER DID. So I'm glad I finally did before autumn (which is basically winter) got here.
The big event this week, anyway, was my sister's birthday on Thursday and because I'm lovely I made cupcakes for all the people she works with (supposedly for money, but I have seen no evidence of any yet...) plus I made her a birthday cake that she complained about. It wasn't the best of 'thank yous' I've heard. Anyway, the point is that I could have actually done without the super-hot temperatures for those two baking days because oh MY, I nearly melted. With the oven on as well... It was just too hot. But it's all done now and I feel good for doing a good thing, and also I'll feel even better when she pays me. I'll buy myself something pretty, like my own copy of Attachments.
Oh, and on Friday I went on a picnic with my friend and it was AWESOME and totally picnic weather and would have been a perfect day if there hadn't been a point where I had to pee in a bush. Yeah. That was not the most fun I've ever had, but other than that? It was great! All the days are great when they're sunny! (I'm in such a good mood. I don't even know how I'm going to deal with the downfall when it's all cloudy and rainy next week. It's not going to be fun.)
I'm totally not going to keep you for much longer because I really don't have anything interesting to say (although, allow me to observe: reading scary-ish stories when it's sunny and lovely? Totally diminishes their scariness. Take THAT, We Need To Talk About Kevin!) because I've just basically been reading and baking and getting outside as much as humanly possible while it's still lovely. But I just want to announce, or rather, re-announce that:
You can read The Grapes of Wrath with me and many other awesome people this October! It's going to be awesome, I can tell already! So you can sign up HERE, and if you've already signed up and refrained from putting the bad bad picture thingy on your blog as requested, you can now put this way classier one on there if you wish to do so! Now, you might be on the fence and all like 'ooh, I don't know, can I manage to read The Grapes of Wrath in one month' and I'm here to tell you that Bex is taking part, and she's going to have a baby in the middle of it. So you can probably manage it, is what I'm saying. So get your sad gifs at the ready, cause October is not all that far away!
