Not much partying going on here in Stellabellaland. I have been working working working these past two weeks (70 hours last week and 65 this week) as we are short-handed at Starbucks and I have my usual 40-hour week day-job (no President's Day off for us). That means not much sewing and not much of anything. Le sigh.
I did finally finish reading the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy (or Millennium trilogy). I may have been the third to last person on the planet to read this (two of my Twitter buds are the others lol!). I enjoyed it a lot and am anxious for the next two movies to be filmed. My current book is Just My Type: a book about fonts by Simon Garfield. I think I qualify for an uber-geek award with this selection. I admit I am a font noticer and prefer serif fonts to sans serif fonts (old fashioned in this regard).
In other miscellaneous news, Downton Abbey has ended for US audiences and now we have to wait for Season 3 along with everyone else. I already miss the Dowager Countess. I think I liked Season 1 better than Season 2. Season 2 was a little overdramatic and soap-opera-y in my opinion. The last episode (Christmas episode) was much better although ended a bit abruptly. I guess to set up for Season 3. What are your thoughts Abbey fans?
PS: I got rid of the new, annoying, incomprehensible word verification so please comment away without having to decipher.
PPS: If you do comment, please let me know what you think of my new plain-style blog layout. Too boring? Too dreary? OK? Need different colors? Don't have an opinion? I hope to add a colorful photo banner at the top with quilts/cats/something. S is supposed to work on one for me in exchange for doing his taxes for him. Hint hint S! Thanks!!!
