novels and noise

So I’ve been getting really weird forms of spam lately on my blog, where someone will leave a comment on a really old post but it doesn’t sound like spam at all and (at times) actually has to do with the body of the post. Clicking on the author’s link takes you to a website where they are selling some sort of product, which again looks fairly legit and set up like a blog. Its a very odd form of spam that isn’t caught by spam detectors obviously. Anyone else getting these kind of comments? haha

I just finished “The Girl Who Played With Fire” by Stieg Larsson today. Once again, as with the first book in the trilogy, it started out super slow and boring and then picked up really rapidly after the middle to the point where I couldn’t put it down haha. Because of that I’m never sure what to think of his books because I always love the second half but am bored by the first half. At any rate, it ended rather abruptly because it pretty much directly continues into the next book, which is the last one in the trilogy…which I don’t have. meh. Might check out Border’s tomorrow but I have a feeling they’ll only have hardcover which I never get.

I’m going to Charlotte next week from Thurs – Mon for the Labor Day weekend holiday to see Shawn. Looking forward to that. I need to get a hold of little travel size containers to put lotions and shampoo and such in. Decided to just bring a carry-on this time because I don’t feel like giving them $50 of my money to check a bag.

I was awoken quite rudely at 7AM this morning by my sort-of-new neighbor’s chain saw. X( Apparently they’re installing new windows and/or doors (as evidenced by the “so-and-so’s windows and doors” truck outside our house). What I don’t understand is…this truck has been coming almost every day this week. I see them pulling up around 8AM when I leave for work. How friggin long does it take for one to install windows and doors? And why the need to start sawing various materials at 7AM on a Saturday, in the backyard, directly next to my window? I can’t say I’m a fan of the sound of screeching metal directly in my eardrum at any point during the day, but a weekend morning (3 hours before I would normally have gotten up) just makes it all the more annoying.

As a result, I’m very tired. 😕 I should workout soon but I’m not feeling it. Might have to force myself to later though…even if its just for a little bit. Or maybe I’ll just take a nap. Yea….that sounds good.

  1. I’ve been getting tons of those crazy comments!

    And noisy neighbours suck. Our upstairs neighbours vacuum constantly. Very annoying.
