June Round-Up - 2012

This Round-Up is a lie! A LIE!

Well, its date of publication is a lie. Coming back from vacation was a hard reality to face, and as such, I have fallen way behind on my bloggy duties. So, let's just pretend it's actually the end of July, and briefly look back at June, shall we?

Movies Seen: Twelve, with four in a theater. You can read my reviews of a two of those below:

Rock of Ages

Magic Mike

Books Read: Five.

Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words by Marilyn Monroe and George Barris

Would It Kill You To Stop Doing That by Henry Alford

Girl Walks Into a Bar... Rachel Dratch

No Cheating, No Dying by Elizabeth Weil

Religion For Atheists by Alain de Botton

Fancy Dinners Out: I took advantage of Dine About Town and had dinner at Forbes Island, (my second time there, and it's definitely worth it...if you're eating at a discount!) and the Burritt Room, (I like their curtained booths; food was OK).

There was also a Father's Day brunch at Town Hall, in which they sold out of the fried chicken--which is what my dad wanted to order--right before we got there. Doh!

Live Shows Seen: One. A live taping of a Kristen Schaal stand-up special for Comedy Central. We were seated in the second row on the right side of the stage, so when it's on, look for me!

Shoes Bought: Two pairs, though only one pair was kind of bought. My mother got a pair of these Chelsea Crew t-strap heels in a light pink, but they didn't fit, so I bought them off of her. And Michele gave me a pair of vintage white, black and gold stilettos, just like these, that didn't fit her....
