When I'm Not Reading Meme

My good friend, D31S, and fellow book blogger Missie from The Unread Reader is hosting this new weekly thursday event, so of course I'm participating!

I love Missie to death and she was the first online friend I made over 2 years ago. I had the pleasure of meeting her face to face in New Orleans in the beginning of June, and I have to tell you that she is even more amazing in person. If you haven't visit her blog, you have no idea what you are missing!

So, the question is: what do I do when I'm not reading?

Well, I'm a big nerd. If I'm not reading I'm usually watching movies or TV Shows that I like. Currently, I watch True Blood, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Glee, Grey's Anatomy and Sons of Anarchy. If these shows are not airing, I might be found watching my DVDs of Buffy, Angel and Veronica Mars (my all time favorite shows). Nothing beats a good book though.

If I go out, which I usually don't, I'll probably go to a movie theater or to have dinner with friends. I really do like to stay at home, I'm the biggest couch potato you ever met. 

I also love to travel, but unfortunately I can't do it all the time. It's too expensive. I just spent about a week in New Orleans meeting Missie and LanYap, my awesome online friends that are now real life friends as well. Here is a picture of me and Missie taken in the French Quarter just a few weeks ago (I'm the one on the right):

I'm also remodeling my home, so that takes some of my time. It gives me plenty of headaches, but I'm very excited to see the end result. That is actually the big news in my life right now. 

My life is really boring at the moment, but it did't use to be. I was a tax attorney, can you believe that? I quit though, it made me miserable. I also went to Fashion Design School for a year, but dropped out. I'm on sabbatical and trying to decide what to do with my life. Book blogging seemed like a great idea, thanks to Missie, so here I am.

 Anyway, here is how the meme works (it's all explained here too):

1. Every Thursday make a post in which you share a little something about yourself or what you like to do outside of blogging. Include pictures or videos.  Make it fun and wild or simple and sweet! 

2. The point of this meme is to get to know other bloggers!  And the one thing I've learned is that bloggers love comments! Everyone that agrees toparticipate will try to visit each other's post and leave comments!

3. Anyone is welcome to join at anytime, but no one is obligated to participate every week.

4. Be sure to sign the Mr. Linky Widget that will be posted here on Thursdays.

5. In your post provide a link back to this When I'm Not Reading intro post so that other people can find the information about participating and grab the coolest button ever!


  1. I loved this meme idea by Missie =))) sooo cool! and so cool to see you both in the pic hehe

    I cant wait to meet ya in person B! =)))

  2. D31S, You are so awesome! Truly! Thanks so much for participating in my little meme. And you are not boring. I'm a cough potato, too, and I can tell you it is exciting to be able to relax and read or just want re-runs of Buffy! There is nothing I'd rather do. Well expect to spend time with you! :D

    Oh, don't forget to plug in your link to this post on Mr. Linky.

  3. Found you on the blog hop! I'm getting a head start ;) LOVE your blog! It looks like one I'll want to keep up on! Your so lucky you got to visit some of your internet friends that are now RL friends! Next year I plan to do that myself!

  4. Visiting fellow bloggers who are online friends for the first time in the French Quarter in New Orleans has to have been a hoot! Not participating in this one yet but do love to read all the bits posted, very cool of Missie to start the Meme and help us all learn more fun things about our fellow book bloggers!


  5. Aww, great post! I need to start my own blog now! But I'm a slow reader and even worse at writing reviews. *hides from Missie*

    Sweetie, you may call yourself a couch potato, but Missie and I have seen you shake your groove thang, and you ain't no boo-tay slouch on the dance floor. Just sayin'! ;p
