Tonight I will ramble about this past weekend and my new hobby. I had a 2 hour drive ahead of me to Houston and instead of planning out my newest playlist of the latest Billboard top 100, I chose to buy an audio book.
I had never listened to an audio book before. I always thought they would be boring, or well a little creepy. Right now my favorite romance author is Maya Banks. So I decided to start off with her book “Rush”. It’s the first book from her The Breathless Trilogy. To my surprise I loved it!
I was able to do all my household chores, and run all my errands without having to stop “reading”. Usually if I’m reading a good book I get nothing else done. I would sit on the couch an entire afternoon and get nothing done. The audio book somehow made me more productive. Before I knew it I was back home with my Dre beats on changing my entire bedroom around and paying all the bills before work!
For 11 hours the Narrator Paul Adam had my full attention, with breaks in between of course. He gasped when he needed to and made all the necessary voice changes for each character when necessary. The drive went fast and I made it to Houston with 30 minutes to spare. I found it hard to get out of the truck in the middle of a chapter.
I’ve only found one con to the audio book thing which was quickly dismissed. They are expensive! But I’ve been told that I can check the books out for free at local libraries. So I will soon be listening to another. If they don’t have Maya Banks…well I will soon be broke. :-)
The hunger strikes When you least expect It grabs you in ways That you don’t forget It reminds you of the things You cannot have It reminds you of a time That left you sad But you feed off of it As much as you can Squeeze your eyes shut And pretend there’s this man Giving you the pleasure That you’ve never had And you reach for the high Because you need it bad You float in the clouds As your fingers roam But as you glide down the hill You find yourself alone

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
