Teaser Tuesday: Lasher, part deux

Same game, another week.

"German? Yes, I had to teach myself that, as well as Spanish and Italian."

P.S. I'm working on a new, non-book post. I just need to get some pictures uploaded for it.

Teaser Tuesday: Lasher

You know it.

Your mission should you choose to accept:
1) Grab the book you are currently reading.
2) Open said book to a random page.
3) Post two sentences from that page (no spoilers, please).
4) List the page number, title, and author of the book.

"He smiled at her vaguely, too tired to argue, too tired perhaps to even remember the phone numbers he ought to call. What evil things drugs were."

I'm back... sort of.

Or, at least I'm going to try to keep up with this again. Here's a quick(ish) rundown since I last posted (over a year ago!). Oops.

- I did run that half marathon and I felt great about my time. I finished up at 2:37:15. Then, I ran it again this past October beating my 2010 time by nearly 4 minutes (2:33:31). I'm fully planning on running this year's half.

- I lost my job at the university in November after that first race. Right before Thanksgiving and my trip to Ohio to visit Nate & Ash. It sucked, but I'm ok with it now. The place was starting to turn me into an unhappy person. I found a new job three days after getting fired on the day I was flying to Ohio. Such luck I had.

- I've taken two trips to Ohio to see Nate & Ash. Both trips were quite fun and I took a bajillion pictures, mostly in the Air Force Museum. I don't think I could get tired of going there.

- I found a new beau. We've been together for a bit over a year. Yes, I know that's not long after ending the engagement but it's ok. He knew the situation from the start.

- Speaking of the old beau, I found out recently that he is engaged again. I hope he has many happy years.

- I FINALLY(!!) graduated this past December with a B.S. in Horticulture!!!!!!! Which reminds me that I should be receiving my diploma near the end of this month.

- I still plan on moving out of the state when I: 1) get my license, 2) buy a vehicular device, and 3) figure out where I want to go.

I don't think there's much else to update about. I'll definitely try to keep up with this blog often. I plan on getting back in with Teaser Tuesdays since I do have ample time to read now that I am just working. So, here's to 2012, hoping it's a good one.
