Hello! Happy Saturday! I'm on a roll this weekend. Friends got me an hour session with the trainer who runs our boot camp so I did that last night. This morning I got up early to run and tomorrow is regular Sunday boot camp. I want Michelle Obama arms and Jillian abs. Please and thank you.

I got a hair cut after my run and then spent way too much money at Victoria's Secret. It was an accident! Last night I bought some bras on their website to avoid going in the store itself but the panties lured me in. They're so pretty and lacy and perfect. I even got this hoodie from their Pink Collegiate Collection. Forget that I'm not a U or M graduate. Living in A2 is apparently enough for me to drop $50 on a sweatshirt. Victoria's Secret is like crack. Seriously.

After the shopping splurge I went into work for a couple of hours and headed to Borders to spend my "40% off a book" coupon. I left with "Einstein’s Telescope: The Hunt for Dark Matter and Dark Energy in the Universe" by Evalyn Gates. Right now, I don't know much about dark matter/dark energy beyond it's abundance and importance. I came home to find a borders.com delivery: "In the Zone: Epic Survival Stories from the Mountaineering World" by Peter Potterfield.

Both of those books have to fall into the queue, though. Today I'm going to start "Star Trek Countdown" - a graphic novel prequel to the Star Trek movie and, after that, Waltz with Bashir: A Lebanon War Story is on the docket.

So, life is busy lately. I'm working a lot and wish I had just a bit more free time and bit less stress. I've had to walk away from some tv shows. There's just no time. By and large, I'm left with Criminal Minds, House, SPN, and Bones. At this point that's all I can manage and I miss reading fic more than I miss Kings or Dollhouse.

It seems, this week, I'm self medicating with my credit card. In addition to everything I already mentioned, I also bought Amy Ray's three solo albums: Stag, Prom, and her newest, Didn't It Feel Kinder. They're awesome. I can't believe this is the first time I've ever listened to her solo stuff.

There's a fantastic NPR interview with Amy here. It's from February and includes a long interview and three song performances. I wish this was available via podcast so I could take it with me. Even more, I wish that the songs were available to download. I'm sure there's some way to rip the audio but it's well beyond my skill level.

Moonshot is updated with the 7 stories I loved in April:Moonshot is updated for April with 7 recs:
2 SPN
2 Criminal Minds
1 SGA
1 Bones
1 SPN/Watchmen

And there's a finally a release date for The Road! October 16th!! FINALLY!

Now I'm ready to tackle the Star Trek GN before heading to a friend's house for dinner. This is a nice weekend.
