Well, I think I can talk in complete sentences now. It was a rough go there for a couple of days. I'd come home very zombie like, sit in front of the TV and stare at - not really watch - The Young and the Restless. I'd be thinking "I don't really want to watch this. I could be reading instead." But I just didn't want to have to try and comprehend another thing. And while I do love it, reading is also comprehending something.
I think the brain is kind of like a sponge. Mine is older than some and as a result, already has a lot of useless tidbits of information soaking it up. So anymore I don't bother trying to remember things I don't need to know at the moment. One of those things is peoples names. I'm terrible at it at the best of times. Although I've been where I am now since November, if I didn't have any interaction with some of the people, I didn't try and clog up my brain with their names. Well, now I'm interacting with a whole bunch of people I never did before so now I not only have to try and remember what to do in the new job, and man is there a lot, I also have to try and remember the names of people now too. I've been concentrating so hard and writing such copious notes, I'm just a wreck when I get home.
And not only that - I've been loosing very badly at Free Cell too! I think my winning percentage is about 35%!!!
In other news - while looking at me rather oddly on the weekend as I tore up pieces of paper with names written on them, I told Lisa she had to pick one.
She picked Ames! Ames who is trying to lessen her book pile *g*. So, if you send me an email with your addy, I can send you a most excellent book!
I also asked Lisa how she would like to write a review for me for the blog. She said she didn't like romance and I replied that would be part of the fun - a romance review from a non-romance lovers point of view. While not exactly agreeing - she gave me another odd look, she said that would mean I'd have to read one of her books - she's a mystery reader.
So now I'm trying to think of the perfect book for her to read. The only ones we have in common that we both like are the Stephanie Plum books. (I ask her who she likes better, Joe or Ranger - but she kind of rolls her eyes at me). Nance, our other sister, likes those ones too.
I'm kind of leaning towards To Die For by Linda Howard. But then again - there's always Dreaming of You. But I think that one might be further down the road - once I have her converted :)
