Friday mega-review #38

Cover of "Catching Fire (The Second Book ...
Cover via Amazon
Wow, folks.  Between the chaos of November and the chaos of December, it's been a while since i did one of these.  I'm sure you don't care about every little detail of the last two months, so I'll just bullet-point some highlights:

  • Had a friend stay for the weekend
  • Saw Thor: The Dark World and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
  • Was attacked by a coffee carafe at a burger joint
  • Tried Sam Adams Utopia
  • Did dinner and drinks with friends on several occasions
  • Volunteered some
  • Ran lots of errands
  • Attended several holiday parties, and at least three birthday parties
  • Did two Thanksgivings, two Christmases, and much shopping in between
  • Went to Philadelphia for three separate weekends, thanks to the above two bullet points
  • Saw the live reading of Welcome to Night Vale
  • Spent a pleasant, staycation-y day in New York, which included fancy cocktails, fancy tea, a 40-block walk in mild weather through holiday-lit Manhattan, and the last of our Christmas shopping
  • Celebrating the unseasonably warm days before Christmas with Australian food with my brother and sister-in-law
  • Got angry with Macy's on three separate occasions
  • Went bowling (Chris bowled his personal best)
  • Enjoyed a surprisingly low-key New Year's Eve party
  • Obtained many books
I think that's about it. It's enough, anyway. I also worked on two scarves and a sock, and finished a gift bag, a dog neckerchief, and an ornament.  I picked at Women's Life in Greece and Rome, finished Blue Remembered Earth , and got most of the way through The Forge of God.

Whew! So, what have you been up to?
