Last weeks post was titled My boring life, but this week was full of good stuff. Wednesday was book club. I've been asking for a "man's book", one that was told from a man's perspective for a change. It was my turn to recommend a book and I chose The Searcher by Tana French. Unfortunately, only two of us finished it, and only two of us showed up for book club. The member that came is one I didn't know very well, so we spent the time talking and getting to know one another. The book was a mystery with a lot of drama and an unexpected ending and I enjoyed it.
We were out the other day and I bought another of Tana French's books. I also bought some cookbooks. I love sitting down to read a new cookbook and try new recipes. It appeals to my sense of adventure.
On Thursday night, we went to see Jinkx Monsoon! That was fun! Her show was a mix of cover songs, original songs and stand-up comedy. I love her dark wit and sarcasm! Other than being kind of loud, it was a great show!
I hadn't been to the Paramount theater since the 80's. It's a very old theater that was restored just after I moved here and has seen many great performers in the years since...we just didn't see the shows. The architecture is beautiful. This is from the lobby ceiling.
