It's only been two months since my last books post? It feels like longer though I'm not sure if that's because I read more or not. I guess I'll keep track through May and then do the usual three-month round-up.

The problem with trying to use DW to journal is that it crossposts with my public fandom journal, the one where I have far less to say these days, and not my personal journal. I have no idea what I want to do with that one, though these days I'm getting the highlights down on a physical journal every day so there are more infrequent updates over there as well. Sometimes it's nice to have a longer post to muse aloud. And sometimes I try to avoid all that musing, so maybe therein lies the problem.

Had a quick Vegas trip this past weekend with my friends to see the Backstreet Boys in concert, and they were old and so were we, but we all had fun and it was super worth it. We also managed to escape tourist trap city (i.e., The Strip) briefly to go eat in the glorious suburban wilds, where we got amazing taiyaki (fish ice cream!! I love calling it that because it's both true and sounds terrible) and then handmade Asian noodles. Damn, foodie paradise at all price points.

So the Vegas feels lingered after getting home, so along with some Elvis ("Viva Las Vegas" and "A Little Less Conversation"), I rewatched Ocean's Eleven and rediscovered my love for slick-talking well-suited dudes pulling off cons and heists. And that Danny/Rusty dynamic is still understated great. Shame the fandom never got big enough to get fanvids, or so it seems. Or maybe the movie was just one long one...

Well, more on everything later; now to cook and to drink! And to figure out all the things going on this week/month.
