Lots happened last weekend. It was Readathon weekend and it was such fun. I started out strong in the morning but we went out for lunch and did some window shopping and well, I ended up finishing just three comics. Still it was a good day. We took my in-laws out for a nice izakaya meal.
And on Sunday we all got up early and sent my father-in-law to the airport. Then went for a browse at Books Inc and an early lunch at Gott’s.
A House without Windows – Nadia Hashimi (for an upcoming book tour)
More Gilmore Girls
We just had lunch at Gott’s Roadside in Palo Alto. I split mahimahi tacos and a kimchi burger with the husband. The kids had hotdogs and we shared some sweet potato fries and a root beer float. My kids have never really had soda, so when the 4yo had a sip of the root beer float he made a disgusted face and hurriedly drank his milk instead! 😛

This Will Make Me NOT Want To Read A Book
Y’know, I’m still watching the GG because you nudged me into it, and now I’m on episode 21 of season one (you warned me the first season wasn’t necessarily a hook) and there ARE more books in the show now, but not as many as I’m craving (fortunately I also enjoy coffee and there is more of that). But her friendship with Lane remains a big draw, so I’m persisting. Are you watching straight through again, or do you just pick randomly?
I think that the Lane-Rory friendship was a HUGE draw for me – back when it was released 2000 to 2007 there were far fewer Asian faces on American TV and I loved that Lane was this rocker girl defying her strict mum!
I’m watching it straight through again and am currently on Season 4. She’s bookish yes but books don’t always come up. I like the small town charm, the quirky characters, the fun dialogue. Season 7 though (when the creators left) was just so wrong…
