i was always convinced that i had read persuasion. i never could remember actually reading it or what it was about, but i knew that i had at one point or another. turns out, i hadn't. so yesterday, i corrected that, and can i just say that if you haven't read it yet, you really should. unless you're not an austen fan, in which case, what is wrong with you?! (side note: is it just me or does it look wrong when people write !? instead of ?!) anyway, i was very grateful to all the people that kept talking about it to me which made me want to "reread" it when i saw it as one of the free books on my ereader. now, though, i want to watch lost in austen and then curl up in bed to reread it, and i can't.
i felt like i had more to say on the topic, but my brain has decided to launch a sit-in until i sleep and just won't do anything it should be doing. you know, like thinking and whatnot.
anyway, i'm cold but if i get under my covers i know i'll fall asleep and forget to pick up my sister. occupational hazard of being a baby sitter. well, that and waking up at five. my dad just got back from the hospital, and i know that i should go down and ask about my mom, but moving from my current position just doesn't seem possible. i can't even get myself to get up and shower, though i smell of baby spit and sour milk. lovely, no? there are also dishes that need to be washed that i've been doing in small bursts throughout the day, but i think i'll just leave the rest for tomorrow morning.
this post was written for the sole purpose of keeping me up and occupied until it was time to leave. now, it is time to leave. yay.
