Week-end and one word meme

Hmmmm, I didn't re-shelve my books this week-end. Instead, I laze around, slept and read. I wasn't feeling too well anyway... cramps on Saturday and lack of sleep on Sunday :( However, I'm determined that I will start today :P

I did read though. I read Shaken & Stirred and Sex, Straight Up. Both are Blaze HQN by Kathleen O'Reilley and they were recommended to me by Rosie. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy them as much as Rosie did. I liked the premises in both books, especially Shaken & Stirred... but not where the storyline went. As for Sex, Straight Up, it was actually good. However, I don't really know if it's the books or me... :(

I've been in a mood lately. Or perhaps, better saying, no mood. I don't feel like reading anything, although I've bought tons of books last week. I'm just feeling quite weird... and it's not just reading. Perhaps I'm feeling restless? I haven't been doing much lately and it's been bugging me. I went out with a friend on Friday evening... a little bit of shopping and eating. We've decided to join a gym, but we're trying to figure which one... The thing is trying to find a cheap one, but convenient for both of us, not easy.

I'm aslo pissed at another friend. See, I have this group of friends and we've been hanging out together for a couple of years now... almost 8 years. We've all met in school; however, now, we've all been doing our own things. Some of us are still in school, others are working. Long story short, we have friend no.1 that is now working in Seattle and she's coming back for the week-end and want to go out. She sent out an email... and after talking with a couple of ppl, I sent out an email setting the date, this Friday night. Then, I have friend no.2 who sends out an email and she wants to combine her b-day party with friend no.1 night-out. I really wouldn't mind combining the event, esp. since I was planning to celebrate a friend no.3 b-day at the same time... However, friend no.2 has invited other friends (that we, the group, do NOT know)... and that annoys me. Especially since friend no.1 invited some other acquaintances. Anyway, long story short, I'm not happy about the situation... and I've been unhappy with friend no.2 for quite a while now. So this does not help. Ugh.

Okay, enough ranting. To lighten the mood, I've been tagged by Zeek for the one word meme.
