Sad Destiny

I know I haven't been around much lately. I haven't been reading much. All very sad.

But even sadder is that I was hoping to make a big comeback today by participating in Dewey's 24-Hour-Read-a-Thon, for which I was super excited. I cleared out my weekend, stocked up on easy-to-prepare food, and bought a bunch of short books to read including the first Gossip Girl novel.

But yesterday I got a message. Somebody is visiting from Germany, but at the last second, his accommodations fell through. The person he was staying with had to go on a surprise business trip.

You may not know this about me, but I have a strict personal rule about not letting anyone including my worst enemy stay in a Brooklyn hostel with ten people sleeping in one room and open showers and probably scabies all over. This German is definitely not my worst enemy, but he is also not somebody I've ever met before. So instead of read-a-thoning, I am playing host and tour guide this weekend to a sort-of stranger. On the plus side, so far it's been absolutely great!

Anyway I hope you guys are having a way lot of fun! If any of you are reading Gossip Girl, maybe you can dedicate an hour to me. If 24 of you are reading Gossip Girl and you all dedicate an hour to me, maybe I'll feel like I participated. Happy Reading!


  1. Too bad you couldn't make it to the read-a-thon. I hope you have fun today playing host/tourist!

  2. Argh, sorry about that. But hope you have a fun day nevertheless.

  3. We miss you, but it sounds like you are being a great host.
