5 Thing Friday
1. I had two interviews this week.
I deserved a comforting dinner of spaghetti pie.
2. The second interview was a grueling two hours long.
Which means I more than deserved a froyo treat. Plus it was National Frozen Yogurt Day so we had to.
Okay, fine. I got froyo twice this week. Froyo makes me happy.
3. I finished Loving Frank by Nancy Hovan on Tuesday night and it totally moved me.
The book is a historical fiction about Mamah Borthwick Cheney, the longtime companion of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The author’s characterization of Mamah felt so believable and intimate.
If you know anything about FLW, then you probably know how tragically his relationship with Mamah ended. Even though I knew what was coming, I was still so emotional about the ending of the novel. It was heartbreaking, but incredibly well done.
I may or may not have already bought another book about FLW…
4. I spent the past two days working next to this guy.
I’m not sure if the calls from my desk to his every other minute to ask dumb questions really counts as being helpful, but I’m always happy to spend more time with someone who makes me laugh.
And that picture totally makes me laugh.
5. I just bought a plane ticket to New Orleans for Mardi Gras weekend with my sister.
Despite the fact that we have family living in NO and have been there a million times, we’ve never been during Mardi Gras. I have no idea what to expect, but I’m thinking it will be slightly crazy.
Do you have any exciting news to share?
How long was your longest interview?
Are you reading anything good right now? I’m always up for book recommendations!
