The Sunday Salon

I can't believe Christmas is just a little over a week away, how does this happen? I thought I was going to have this super long Christmas season to enjoy but it's just flown by.

I managed to read a short Christmas romance this week, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas. It was one of those reads that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! I'm also still struggling to get through Lilith. Jason, don't hate me, but it's truly a struggle. I just really struggle with fantasy and no matter how much people I love rave about individual books, when I read them I'm still stuck. It's one of the saddest things of my life. It happened with One Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, too.

The Hobbit came out and I don't care about seeing it, but does anyone else? Did anyone see it?

I also, um, sped through the third season of Six Feet Under. Ugh this show kind of makes me want to write and write about it. I'm also thinking a lot about what Jenny said about the portrayal of mental illness, particularly Billy's and I think she might be right, Billy was barely in this season, though, and I felt like his...relapse? was very plotty, but I feel like it would have been better if the show had given Billy more of a POV. Anyway, I don't want to say too much because I'll probably want to write a real post soon, but I was SO DOWN after marathoning like 4 episodes that I decided I need to try to take a break from the show, it was just so so heavy there at the end and I cried a lot in the season finale again. Also, I was super irritated by some plotlines and I need a break from those characters in particular! But ha, we'll see how long my "break" lasts. (probably until tomorrow!)

I don't even know what to say about what happened in Connecticut. It's just so sad, you guys.

I guess that's all I've got for today! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the end of the year! Let me know what you're up to!
