January 3, 2010
Well, today is the first day of the 2nd test match between Australia (Go Aussie Go!) and Pakistan in their 5 game series. Personally, I will be avoiding it as much as possible, but the rest of the household is glued to the couch for the next 5 days. I don't get it?
So I'll be happily surfing the net, studying (not so happily) and waiting for the rain to cool things off here. We've had so much rain recently that anytime the sun pokes it's head out from behind the clouds... instant sauna. Thank god I have my trusty hand fan nearby. Who doesn't!?
Now while I am waiting for the rain - and ignoring the cricket fueled calls from the lounge room - I'll be relaxing with a few books. I have found a new paranormal romance author, Terry Spear, and have read her Destiny of the Wolf. This is a good general lycanthrope romp, but not as involved or compelling as the Anita Blake series lycanthropes. Not something that I would pre-order-and-pray-that-it-gets-here-soon list, but okay for the bus or train ride.
Now I get to sit back, make a cup of tea in my fine bone china english teacup, and kick back and get into the Regency vibe.
Happy New Years
