Yep, I am one of those people who is super excited about the Super Bowl today. Even though intellectually I know there are a lot of things to criticize about professional sports, I still love watching a good football game. Come tonight, I’ll be on my couch cheering and eating snacks. I still haven’t decided whether to cheer for the Ravens or the 49ers, but I think this guide to picking a team may help me choose.
If you’re not into football, Jenn over at Jenn’s Bookshelves is hosting a read-a-thon today, The Big Game’s On Read-a-Thon, that looks like a ton of fun. And if you’re not into reading or watching football… I’m not sure I can compute 🙂
But before the big game, I’ve got some work to do. I got a lot of weekend chores done yesterday, but today I still need to do my laundry, make soup, and go to Radio Shack to pick out my new cell phone! My family just got to our two-year upgrade, so I’m heading out today to pick a new phone. I still haven’t quite decided what to get, but I’m leaning towards the Samsung Galaxy S III.
This week, I managed to finish two books: The Revolution Was Televised by Alan Sepinwall and The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. I liked both of very different reasons, and I hope to have reviews up sometime this week.
When I do find some time to read today, I’ll be picking up either Marvel Comics: The Untold Story by Sean Howe or The Amazing Absorbing Boy by Rabindranath Maharaj. I started The Amazing Absorbing Boy last night before bed and, so far, I think it’s awesome. The main character, Samuel, is a 16-year-old boy from Trinidad who gets shipped off to live with his estranged father in Canada after his mother passes away. I think the book is going to be about family and expectations and new places and adjustment, all wrapped up in a love for comic books that I find appealing.
Anyway, that’s my Sunday. I hope you all are staying warm — it’s been BITTERLY cold in Minnesota this week, so I’m staying under blankets as much as I can. Have a wonderful day!
