Monica: Readathon Update 6
Congrats on making it this far, if you're still awake, at least sort of upright, and semi-coherent! =)
I've been working my way through Assassination Vacation by my new best friend Sarah Vowell -- that woman is ridiculous. Who writes books that make their readers super-interested in presidential assassinations? Who has that kind of power!? (Also, guys, lesson learned -- if you're president, don't let Robert Todd Lincoln touch you with a 39-and-a-half foot pole. That guy jinxes everything he touches.)
This may be my last update of the night, though, as a warning. I'm not suggesting that I'm currently curled up in bed with the gentle light of my bedside table lamp shining on me and a dog asleep on my feet, but... it's entirely possible. Given this -- and the fact that my Red Bull supply ran out an hour ago -- I can't guarantee that I'll hold on to consciousness. Oh, pillow, you are soft and wonderful....
So on the offchance that I don't reappear, thanks to everyone who has stopped by to participate in the Mini Challenge, or to cheerlead, or just to say hi! And, of course, thanks to all the ridiculously fantastic people over at the Readathon itself. Today has been an absolute blast -- Shel and I are already talking about how we'll work the next one!
