the friday 5



Life

Still hot.

Still humid.

Still whining about it.

Reading

I’m beta reading so I haven’t had time to read anything for fun but I did finish Free Fall by Emma Barry & Genevieve Turner last week and will have a review up later this month. (a few nitpicks but still enjoyed overall)

Santa Clarita Diet S2 – Netflix

This  show is a fun take on zombies, realtionships and mid-life crisis. It’s over the top and a hoot.
*warning: it’s pretty graphic as far as blood and guts so not for the squemish

Listening to

LSD (Labrinth, Sia, Diplo) – Genius


* And I’m going to see Janelle Monae this weekend!!!!!

I loved host Lillian Cunningham’s first podcast – Presidential and she’s back with Constitutional: 

"With the writing of the Constitution in 1787, the framers set out a young nation’s highest ideals. And ever since, we’ve been fighting over it — what is in it and what was left out. At the heart of these arguments is the story of America.

As a follow-up to the popular Washington Post podcast “Presidential,” reporter Lillian Cunningham returns with this series exploring the Constitution and the people who framed and reframed it — revolutionaries, abolitionists, suffragists, teetotalers, protesters, justices, presidents – in the ongoing struggle to form a more perfect union across a vast and diverse land.”

  1. You're beta-reading again! Not so long since I last did, and I already miss it LOL. I mean, it's work in a way, but SO rewarding.

  2. It's so humid here, it is making me remember what a woman in North Carolina told me. She said, "We don't breathe the air here, we wear it." Yeah, it's like that here right now. I had no idea I moved to a rain forest, but those are the current conditions in Jersey.

    1. Her concert was a blast!!! Not many special effects but she's an incredible entertainer - costume changes, a fun set, dancers. It was awesome!

  8. It actually has gotten nicer here, less hot and humid. I hope yours goes away a bit... although I know summer in Florida, it's probably not going to for a while. :(

    I'll bet that podcast is super interesting! I haven't seen Santa Clarita Diet but I've heard it's a trip!

    1. Jealous! Yeah - it's not going anywhere until maybe October here. We have a pool but had t have work done on our enclosure so we haven't' been able to use it for weeks.

  9. I've been so on the fence about Santa Clarita Diet but it seems like everyone loves it! Maybe I'll have to give it a shot...

    1. As long as you can handle gore I say watch it! Especially if you need escapist fun.

      Delete
  10. I've been complaining about the heat as well! Even the pools are too hot. The last time we went the water was 85 degrees. It felt like a warm bath on a hot day surrounded by other people--yuck. I keep thinking it will rain or a cold front will come through, but no... it's really not helping our garden.

    Santa Clarita is a show I've been thinking about starting! <3

    1. We've had lots of rain this summer which in some ways just makes it steamier after because it's still hot. We have a pool but haven't been able to go in because we're having maintenance done in the enclosure.

      Can you handle gore?? It's (SCD) pretty bloody and yucky but I love it!

  11. Thanks for the cupcake post love, wifey!

    Also, Santa Clarita is EVERYTHING! I love the husband he is so hilarous! My only complaint is i need season 3 now!

  12. Santa Clarita Diet is so messed up but it's hilarious. I learned read quick that it's not sit on the couch and snack of food while watching it kind of show though. HaHa

    1. It's SOOOOO over the top but it works.

      But definitely not for the squeamish. I can handle quite a bit of gore and even I go EWWW sometimes watching this lol

  13. I feel you on the humidity. And the daily dose of thunder showers just makes it worse. Ugh.
    Free Fall sounds interesting. Unique time period that I don’t see covered a lot, and I’ve never read a book that featured an astronaut.
    Cupcakes based on books... love it! :)

  14. I have also been dreading the humidity. I used to beta read but quit after a while because I wanted to get back to reading books I was excited for.

  15. I've only watched the first couple episodes of Season 2 for Santa Clarita Diet, so I need to get on it. I do really love the show though. Too funny! The neighbor kid cracks me up.
