Last night the beau and I visited our local library because he had a book on hold and had just finished his last (Jay-Z’s latest, Decoded). I went skipping along because a) I love the library and b) I thought, hey, it is the eight month of this calendar year and I’ve only read one book (my goal was twelve!). And I wanted my first soft serve ice cream cone of the season.
I quickly remembered a book that I had thought about purchasing months ago… Ellen DeGeneres’ Seriously…I’m Kidding. Little known fact about me: I will spend hours, and man do I mean hours, watching Ellen on YouTube. If I were to buy a television it would be so that I could watch her show each day at four o’clock. But because I work until five and have no interest in a television, I can’t watch her like a normal person. Nope. Instead, when I’m about to fall asleep, I’ll think, “oh, let me waste hours that I should be sleeping on Ellen.” And I do. Quite more frequently than I’d like to admit. Take a look at my bucket list. Does it all make sense now? I have been trying for FOUR years to get a ticket to her show. And I’m not being picky about only wanting to attend the “12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.” Nope. I’d watch her pick belly button lint for an hour- I just want to be there. Someday. Somehow.
Anyway, after a delicious kiddy vanilla cone dipped in toasted coconut, I was back in the apartment by nine and reading her book. Hilarious. I was literally laughing out loud and sharing lines with the beau. I don’t think he was too happy about this because I was interrupting his reading. But I couldn’t contain myself; Ellen and I have so much in common. She’s allergic to penicillin. She has a great love of hummus. We are both January babies and even better, both Aquarius. We both have beautiful blue eyes.
Needless to say, within 24 hours I finished the book. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of hers but do think the audio book would be even better. I may purchase it for my next road trip. Book number two: done!
