so tired, and very very random

I'm really not into eggplant. I should be, but it just feels like I'm eating a sponge. I think I'd rather try the cactus pads, at least they should be crunchy and not spongy. I already know I like bell pepper, but I think my next eggplant tasting will be ratatouille, and then I might just be done.   I say that with a twinge of guilt, I hate to give up, and maybe I'm just making it wrong.  I have a friend here who loves it plain and grilled.oh who am I kidding, I still won't give up, I'll just keep pinching my nose and squirming.

On a completely unrelated note, I watched a very sad tale yesterday. It was a quick dissolution of a long time friendship, and I was helpless as I saw it disintegrate in front of my eyes in a rapid succession of heated exchanges.  I'm tired, and I understand the one parties need for space and rest, and to not talk about it. I also understand the other side as well, there was no expectation or push for help or assistance. It was all emotional, and filled with years of things that I was not privy to, and then the friendship vanished as one person packed up and left.
Where ever you are in your friendships, please I beg of you, don't make me witness the death of your friendship with a long term friend of yours. It's painful and there is nothing that I can do, and I hate that feeling.  So myself and the remaining party are going to re-group and get focused on healing and living life in the most normal way we can until she is back a whole and can be completely independent again.

I've been up really really late everyday now for the last two weeks, so I'm pretty much exhausted.  But I have been reading another good book, although it is all about violence against women, and none of the characters are christian, so there is lots of sex, but none of the happy experiences are explained. The bad news is, the violent stuff that happens in the book, it is explained...it helps you understand the main characters and want revenge along with them, but it's not friendly  in any way.  "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". I also should explain that although I have links for amazon still, I am not an amazon affiliate anymore, it's because I live in California and that's how it played out with them and amazon regarding the collection of taxes, or rather the non-collection of taxes.  I'd get into how this state really needs to learn how to budget like they obviously want everyone else to, but I'm pretty sure you all have heard it before and are tired of that conversation by now. Getting back to the book, if you like mysteries that are rather thrilling, this one is a good one.  Now, I also have to point out the beginning of the book is rather long and filled with the histories and developments of the characters.  It gets moving in the middle, i have not finished it, but I've heard that the end kind of moves in a different direction.


So that's my week in a nutshell. I'm looking into starting up some other new books, there is a Fallen series by Lauren Kate right now there are three books and a fourth is on it's way. I'm thinking of getting these and reading them, has any one else read them? It's more of a teen book I suppose.
