It is I, she of the still sore neck! (and shoulders and back too)
I know, it's Thursday and I usually send these out on Mondays, but trying to get all my stuff done while still working on stretching out my shoulders and neck AND get all the running in (which I haven't been good at) has been a bit much. But here's the usual show:
Jen Talks About Her Book
"The quest to visit all 50 states: How many have you seen?" in the Associated Press
"Beware the gray, humid race day" for The New York Times
"What is a project management office (PMO) and do you need one?" for CIO.com
What I'm Reading
Two books for you: First, Annie Oakley by Charles M Wills. This is a biography aimed at young adults, and I bought it before I adopted *my* Annie Oakley (I was pretty sure on the name but I had to find the dog first to make sure it fit. One alternative: Figment). This covered the basics. I'm glad I read it so I know more about my dog's namesake. And second: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I heard he won the Nobel Prize and immediately hopped onto eBay to buy a used copy without knowing what it's about. It's beautiful and slowly rips you apart inside (I don't think I could handle the movie). Now I'm reading Garrison Keillor's Pontoon, which I found in a Little Free Library.
What I'm Watching
Short review time again:
- Jane the Virgin. I'm done season three. I'm not sure how I feel about that plot turn that came mid-way through.
- Ballers. I had access to HBO for a few days so watched all three seasons in three days. It's silly. But it also had men talking about things you don't often see them talking about on TV, including substance abuse, fertility and mental health.
- Soapdish. This was a scream!
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Mehhhhh. I watched it for the vintage coats.
