No more excuses

la-zy: (adjective) averse or disinclined to work, activity, or exertion; indolent.
la-zy: (adjective) (of a livestock brand) placed on its side instead of upright. **who knew?**

Egad. I have been thinking a lot about blogging but, of course, thinking is not doing. But I want to get back to it because there are things happening right now that I want to blog about: my new job, the publishing world, what not to wear to work, the Canadian election, the U.S. election, weight loss, feminism, pink ribbons, hockey, mental health, my two-week headache.

Oh, and I’ve decided to start my next “project” on October 1. I’ve decided to read all the books on Time Magazine’s 100 Best Novels of All Time list. And I’m going to blog about it here. I’ve already picked the first three books I’m going to tackle but that will be in the other blog, as will my reasons for reading all those books and for picking the Time list as my guiding light.

I was planning on starting all this at the beginning of September, but I’ve been busier than expected this month (and the two-week headache didn’t help things much). But now that it’s really, finally, officially fall I feel more inspired to start all those things I put off in the haze of summer. Fall is my absolute favourite time of year so I really feel ready to get some stuff done. Really, it will just be reading and knitting…but I can’t think of anything else I could want.

What a great idea! I'd love to read all those books, but I'm up to my ears in magazines. So many subscriptions, so little time. But I will read your book blog to keep me in the know!
