I was going to write up a bunch of cocktail recipes that I developed over the summer, but after two or three minutes of Internet research, I see that I didn’t invent anything new. Diet cranberry cocktail plus Bombay Sapphire has quite a few Google pages, as does Maker’s Mark and diet A&W cream soda. Oh, well.
Guys, I’m getting older. I’m slowing down. Thinking maybe it’s time to wind things up. Finish the book I’m working on now and then start work on the last book I’ll ever write, and then I’m done.
(I say that every year. Ha, ha.)
I’ve been watching TV like it’s my religion, lately. I watched Breaking Bad and True Blood and I’m still watching Louie and So You Think You Can Dance. I’m waiting for New Girl and Mad Men and Game of Thrones and Girls to come back.
I’ve been reading a little and now that it’s fall, I’ll start reading a lot. Right now I’m reading the books my youngest son was required to read for school this year, plus a book about a video game he plays. I always read what my kids are reading.
I haven’t been knitting at all. I’ve been making jewelry, instead.
I’ve been looking at the Internet while sitting on my bed with my cats sitting next to me.
I’ve been buying some new music, but mostly old music that I used to have on record or cassette 20 years ago, because I was inspired by Yacht Rock on YouTube. I love Yacht Rock, and I love Steely Dan.
That’s about it. I hope y’all are doing fun stuff and absorbing lots of good pop culture.
