Things to do in Austin while you’re sick

My partner had work in Austin this weekend so I tagged along.  My goal was to visit friends and have a few days off before the stress of our wedding.  Unfortunately something I ate disagreed with this plan.

 

So I spent 2 nights in Austin laying in my hotel room reading and watching TV.  I really enjoyed Dawn by Octavia Butler and really want to read the rest of the series.  She is brilliant.  Every time I read one of her novels i’m engrossed in a world so much colorful than the one we live in.  It’s like going through withdrawal to finish it.  

 

I also watched Season 5 of Mad Men and I have to say… Better than Season 4 and I continue to be impressed with how well written it is.  The show captures how mundane and banal evil can become.

  1. I LOVE Octavia!! I’m pretty sure I own that trilogy. Remind me what Dawn was about? Lilith, right?
