Quick update: my feet are tired

Well, Dev's graduation party was today, so we had about 75 people shuffling through the house at one point or another. And I don't really know what's the deal--I've walked miles (okay, one and a half miles from the train station to my friend's house) in these wedges and don't feel a thing, but then I wear them during the party and at the end of the day my feet can't even stand flip flops. 

The sangria and Asian noodle salad were hits. The lights went up nicely. Someone came with balloons. My mom and I both wore white shirts--they made it through completely unstained! 

It was a wonderful, wonderful party. 

My iTouch and iPhone came in handy, as I had to keep buying new songs to accommodate the millions of song requests from Devin's friends so I just kept switching the two in the speakers so I could keep the music going and sync new songs as they came in. 

We have so much extra food. I don't want to think about it. 

But now I'm in bed. We've stopped cleaning up for the day. We've collapsed. 

I am now rewarding myself with some quality time with E. L. James's Fifty Shades of Grey.  

So I know I said I wouldn't make any unnecessary purchases this summer. But I really wanted to see what the hype was about this book. And there were 1200 people on the holds list for this book at the local library. And as we were in Costco stocking up for the party, I saw it on sale for $10....

...and I bought it. But I had legit reasons, right? 

Well, last night I decided to surrender going to bed at a reasonable hour so I could start it. So far the writing isn't horrible, but it isn't amazing either. However I am intrigued by the characters and want to see where this is going. I find myself really wanting to get back to the book, which is a good thing. However, I'm beginning to see how this story is a bit twilight-esque...with the clumsy girl (who isn't amazingly attractive yet somehow all males within a 10 mile radius have a thing for her) and the older male who is the "epitome" of male beauty, who happens to act ten times older than he really is, and who tells Ana that he is much too dangerous for her yet continues to contact her. 

Hmm. 

Well, until tomorrow...
