So… I didn’t say anything the other day because I was SUPER tired, but I was working the night shift the last few nights annnnnd the first night there, who should walk in but on of my FAVORITE booktubers.

Now….if you know me, you know I sometimes don’t say things when I should because I get all awkward and nervous, but this day I just couldn’t help myself. I mentioned that I followed him on youtube and we had a great chat about books while my coworker and I made his sandwich.

And then he turned around and talked about it. On his vlog. On youtube. So…yeah… GO WATCH IT! Mostly because he’s such a great person to watch.

( If you’re wondering/only want to see what he says about our interaction, skip ahead to like the eight or nine minute mark.  SERIOUSLY, though, guys–you should TOTES go follow Peter for his booktube if you’re not already following him, because he’s awesome sauce and I adore him so hard.  His booktube channel can be found RIGHT HERE MAH DEARS! )

HEY HOWDY HELLO!

I know, I know–it’s been a few since you heard from me last.  I am SO super sorry for that, really and truly–there’s only so much this little penguin beak can handle at times, you know?!

There’s not been much excitement in my world recently.  I’ve gotten some books in the mail and in the email, I’ve done some work stuff, I’ve…tried not to lose my feathers?  but that’s a day-to-day struggle and honestly I feel like I fail at it most of the time.

So…how about I just share some music and fun stuff with you?  Sound good?  Good.

So this week was “get emails from ALL TEH AUTHORS/PUBLISHERS” week in my world.  And by that, I mean all those I’ve worked with in the past.  And by that I mean…okay, not ALL of them, but a good amount that added up to a decent number of new books on my shelves to read YAY!

Because…books.  Books are what excite me.

I don’t really have a whole lot to talk about today.  I am in desperate need of a friend or two or several, but I’m not sure where to even begin with THAT venture.  I mean, PandaPants is one of the bestestest book buddies around, but I’m a little lacking in the friends department in general, and I have basically zero amount of time on my hands lately to go out there and make some, sooooo… any suggestions?  Anyone?  HOW DOES A PENGUIN MAKE FRIENDS?!

HELLOOOOOOO, penguins!  It is I, your royal beakness!

I’m not sure how much I’ll be updating your fins today–since my last Stacking the Shelves, not a whoooole lot has changed really.  Let’s see…. people continue quitting at work (they’re dropping like flies, penguins.  LIKE FLIIIIIES!)  I’m going to be officially starting my OFFICIAL schedule in the near soonish future…meaning 9am-5pm…six days a week.  On the plus side, YAY OVERTIME!  On the negative side….there really isn’t one actually, so YAY that too!  Seriously, I’m really enjoying this job.  My bosses are fantastic, I’ve been offered a SUPER awesome promotion packet for when I take on the GM position, and I’m super enthusiastic about this opportunity–seriously, the timing could not have been better with all of these life changes.  Obviously something wanted me to be in THIS place, doing THIS work, at this exact time.

Keith apparently ordered the DVD shelves earlier today, so we’ll be receiving that around Valentines Day, which means YAY I can actually unpack some of my boxes finally (seriously, all my stuff is still pretty much in boxes.  Or hampers.  Or bags.  We really need to start working on sprucing up the apartment.)  He also informed me the other night that we will be celebrating Valentines Day with dinner out and a movie.  Having come out of a series of relationships where Valentines Day wasn’t really a big deal….this is interesting for me.  Because honestly, until he said something, while I KNEW subconsciously that VDay is a thing…I had forgotten?  the VDay is a thing couples actually DO?!  I’m so terrible at this game, I can’t even.

Wyoming is getting DUMPED on by mountains of snow and all I can do is sit here and laugh because I SO TOTALLY don’t miss that frickfrack right now.  I mean, we’ve had some cold days here…but…I’ll take this cold over the snow and the below zeroes and the ICK that’s happening back home.

I actually have tomorrow (Saturday!) off, so Keith and I are gonna do….I dunno what but hopefully something fun because I sort of need to get out of the apartment for a bit.  Maybe I’ll talk him into going to a movie, or something… SOOOOOMETHING DIFFERENT, at the very least!

Other than that, I’ve just been doing the usual–going to work (I went in like two hours earlier today than usual because YAY catering orders! boooo I’m exhausted.  YAY tomorrow off!), coming home, eating dinner and sleeping….rinse and repeat.  Oh, and also squashing ants, because apparently the last tenants weren’t clean at all and so we have those.  Little tiny ones.  EWWWW.  (side note…why is it I can’t get away from the pests, no matter where I go?!)

What’s been happening in your worlds, penguins?!

Sooooo…

I changed up my blog a little bit.  Not much.  I mean, I’m not even sure you’ll  have NOTICED, it’s such a small change.

But if you HAVE been paying attention and you DID notice…let me know what you think?!  I sort of decided very very late Thursday night that I wanted–nay, NEEDED–to do this.  I guess it was time?  My blog wasn’t feeling very seamless and cohesive to me anymore, and I wanted to change that, so…

how did I do?  Is it more cohesive now?  A little?  Please tell me it is?!

How are YOU all?!  What did you do this last week?!  What blog posts did you put up that you think I should check out?! TELL ME ALL THE THINGS!

Hello!  It’s me.  I was wondering after all this time if you would like to meet….

TO TALK ABOUT BOOKS, DUH?!?!?!  I mean really, what ELSE would we talk about?  Books.  Books all the time.  Books 24/7.  BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS!

And music.  Because they go hand in hand.

Currently playing on my spotify:

I have done almost ZERO reading since the beginning of the month.  OOPS?!  But I’m loving all the blog-hopping and commenting I’ve been doing, so I guess it’s a good trade off.  Hopefully I’ll figure out a new routine and be able to do both.

I decided last night to rewatch TRUEBLOOD, because why not?!  I only own seasons 1-5…but that means I’m only missing 2 seasons, so when I think of it like that, it’s all good!  I haven’t watched Trueblood in a while, so…it’ll be entertaining to go back through and rediscover my love for the series! (at least, that’s what I’m hoping happens!)

How are you all doing?!  What have you been up to?!  What are you listening to, watching, reading, eating, drinking?!?!?!?!?! (I’m a bit nosy, okay?  I refuse to apologize.)

As ALWAYS, click the covers to go to the goodreads pages for each title!

Hello, and welcome to Friday Fever–your one stop igloo for all things bookish and sales-worthy!

I decided to make this meme because:

2.) I’m too lazy to go seeking out the new host, if there is one;
3.) I always did my own thing with Friday Finds anyway, so why not just make it OFFICIALLY my own idea?!

So, it was decided this last week (rather spur of the moment–I swear, penguins, I don’t live my life day to day anymore, but minute to minute!  I mean, I’m not complaining about this, but…weird!) that I will be moving in December!  I am suuuuper excited, though also just a smidge bit scared–I’ve never moved so far away before, and while I know I CAN handle it, it’s still nerve-wracking to say the least.  So far, though, everything’s been smooth-sailing.

It got super cold this week in Wyoming–snow, even!–and my poor basement apartment is being overrun by beetles.  Seriously, they must live in the walls–I don’t see where else they’d be coming from except under the front door.  I’m hoping they freeze soon and leave me in peace.

What else, what else… I think that’s about it, actually!  Been kind of quiet around here; I spend most of my free time reading these days, so not much else to report!

How are you all?

HAPPY SATURDAY, PENGUINS!

Wow, that was maybe just a smiiiiiidge overly enthusiastic.  I apologize.

I think I also promised to tell you guys aaaaaaaaall about my weird family drama that cropped up this week?  But… long story is long, so let’s just leave it at this:  I had dinner with my family twice.  The first time was SPECTACULOUS.  The second time, my brother’s new girlfriend came with.  It was supposed to be focus on the new girlfriend and get to know her better night.  Right?!  RIGHT?!…

It became Grandma preferred to focus on BETH night and make everyone else uncomfortable.  Because that sounds like fun, right?  WRONG.  Basically, my grandma threw herself off a cliff and dragged me with her because why not.

YAY, long story magically shortened!  Let’s move on, yes?
