J-Dub’s Review of “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng

From the jacket – Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of long-held secrets and the ferocious pull of motherhood-and the danger of believing that planning and following the rules can avert disaster, or heartbreak.

No spoilers.  Plots and sub-plots.  Haves and have nots. Putting on facade for others.  Lost dreams.  Choices.  It’s all in there.  Despite the ending being a little too unrealistic (can’t explain more or I’d spoil it), I enjoyed this book and rated it 4 of 5 stars.  Goodreads over rating is 4.12 as of 6/2/19.  Okay, now I am really done. 🙂

As always, more to come.

Random Musings 6/2/19

  • It can’t be June … Oh but it is!  Does time go faster as we get older?  Nope.  Time is the same. Still only 24 hours in a day.
  • I say we stop keeping time.  One day when I retire that’s just what I’ll do.  Throw out the schedules.  Do what I want when I want … like sleeping … at 3 in the afternoon. Or awake and reading at 2 in the morning.  Get my days and nights all mixed up as mom used to say.
  • Great! Now I miss my mommy.
  • I am nearing the end of my current commonplace book.  Wonder what is a commonplace book?  Well look no further … LOOK HERE.
  • I never thought I’d fill this one up.  I started it on 12/23/16.  Wowser!  And just now I re-read it start to most recent page.  Dang!  Like I have nothing else to do.  Starting my retirement plan to throw out my schedule very pre-retirement.
  • I need better penmanship.  Some of my commonplace book is not legible.  So … I made stuff up.  I am famous for MSU.
  • I stopped packing to wash clothes and will get back to packing later.  Have I mentioned I hate to pack?  Because I do!
  • One of these days I am going to randomly go to the airport with only the shirt on my back … well and pants … and shoes … oh let’s just say I will show up at the San Antonio International Airport fully dressed.  No bag though.  Just my purse.  I’ll buy clothes and accessories when I get there.  And a new suitcase to bring my new stuff back home.  Where?  Well wherever there turns out to be.
  • Our luggage selection is lacking.  If I wasn’t such a cheapskate, I’d have bought a new better rolling suitcase.  The kind with 360 wheels.  But not for using only once.

Okay, well I’m done.  For now anyways.  See ya in a week.  I have scheduled some stuff to keep my streak alive.  The “real” as opposed to fake me will be away for a bit.

As always, more to come.

Will Someone Pack for Me Puhleese????

… because I don’t wanna.  Worst part of taking a trip is PACKING.

Can’t I just time travel?  Something like Star Trek beam me up Scotty or even Quantum Leap’s Sam where I simply wake up tomorrow in KC.  In someone else’s body ?!??  That’d be awesome.  Lol.

Anyone remember that show? … With Scott Bakula?? He’s Mister NCIS: New Orleans these days.

Nope!  Not possible?  Well that’s a bummer.  I guess better get crack-a-lack-in.

As always, more to come.

For 6/2/19 ~ “Love Street”

Our prompt today is Avenue/Boulevard/Drive/Lane/Road/Street and I picked “Love Street” … a song by American rock band the Doors. It appears on their 1968 album Waiting for the Sun.

She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens

She has robes and she has monkeys
Lazy diamond studded flunkies
She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has you

She has wisdom and knows what to do
She has me and she has you

I see you live on Love Street
There’s this store where the creatures meet
I wonder what they do in there
Summer Sunday and a year
I guess I like it fine, so far

She lives on Love Street
Lingers long on Love Street
She has a house and garden
I would like to see what happens

La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
