Conversations With My Husband: White Walkers

Conversations With My Husband: White Walkers

Salutations Bookworms! I never can predict when Hubs is going to say something blog-worthy, but, well, this happened while we were watching Game of Thrones this week. You’re welcome. Jim: You know, I wouldn’t mind working for those White Walkers. Katie: You mean the ice monsters that control an army of the undead? Jim: Yeah. I mean, I wouldn’t be a mindless zombie or whatever, but maybe they need an accountant. Katie:… Read more »

20 Questions (Because I am Ill-Prepared to Discuss Books Today)

20 Questions (Because I am Ill-Prepared to Discuss Books Today)

Howdy Bookworms! I’m running behind blog wise so I thought I’d tackle the super fun 20 questions game I saw Jen at The Relentless Reader complete a while back. Everybody loves 20 questions, right?! 20 Questions About Me:   1. HOW TALL ARE YOU? 5’3 and a half. The half inch is very important to me. I typically round up and tell people I’m 5’4 because it’s weird to claim… Read more »

Conversations With My Husband: Crankypants

Conversations With My Husband: Crankypants

Happy Friday Bookworms! Everybody has crappy days from time to time. What’s important is surrounding yourself with people who can (usually) snap you out of that mood. In case I needed a reminder as to why I married my husband, this conversation happened recently. Katie: I hate everything today. Please excuse me while I go listen to Nirvana in the dark. Jim: Are you channeling teen angst Katie? Katie: Yup…. Read more »

Vacation: All I Ever Wanted

Vacation: All I Ever Wanted

Hola Bookworms! I’m sorry I was so scarce last week. Actually, I’m not. I was on vacation at Disney World. Because that’s how I roll. (No, I did not go to the Harry Potter parks. Another time, I assure you!) I didn’t warn y’all in advance because I saw once of 20/20 that you should never tell the internet when you’re not home. Not that I don’t trust YOU, my… Read more »

Conversations With My Husband

Conversations With My Husband

Happy Friday, Bookworms! Sometimes I feel that the conversations that go on in my house need to be shared with the world. It might explain some things. The following exchange occurred last weekend. Jim: If your blog were a celebrity, who would it be? Katie: Hmmm… I’m not really sure. Visions of Reese Witherspoon are dancing in my head, but I think that’s just because we share a birthday. What do… Read more »

Keeping it Weird

Keeping it Weird

Howdy Bookworms, I’m going to take a little break from books today because today marks 5 years that Hubs and I have been hitched. In past years I’ve come up with clever limericks and other silliness, but this year I’m going to seize the opportunity to post wedding photos because I am fresh out of clever. The good news? After 5 years of marriage and 6.5 years of dating (that… Read more »

Confession Friday (on Thursday): We Fear the Doorbell

Confession Friday (on Thursday): We Fear the Doorbell

Bookworms, I have a confession to make. Jim and I HIDE when the doorbell rings, particularly if it’s after dark. The last winter’s eve visitor we had turned out to be a Mormon missionary. While I respect the rights of all people to practice their respective religions, I would prefer it if I were left alone to practice (or not practice) mine in the privacy of my own home. In… Read more »

The Third Anniversary is the Limerick Anniversary, Right?

The Third Anniversary is the Limerick Anniversary, Right?

Three years ago today, I got married. Jim’s a good egg, so I’m still pretty glad that we’re official and all. I knew I wanted to commemorate our anniversary on the blog, because it’s my blog and I just can’t read books THAT FAST, okay? Okay. So technically the three year anniversary gift is leather. We just purchased a leather couch. I will consider that our gift to each other…. Read more »

I'm A Sensitive Soul, Though I Seem Thick Skinnnnnned…

I'm A Sensitive Soul, Though I Seem Thick Skinnnnnned…

Happy Thursday, Bookworms! I was having a hard time deciding on what to write today, so I’m straying a bit from books. The other day was rough for me. Like the great Pumbaa in The Lion King, “I’m a sensitive soul, though I seem thick skinned.” I got my feelings hurt, so I was down in the dumps. Jim knew I was feeling crummy, so he decided to bust out his… Read more »
