Hold on to your butts....

Over a month without posting, my bad! Here's what I've been up to in between working my booty off:

I got this gorgeous little guy:
I love him so! It even makes R2-D2 noises when you turn it on and off! I'm in love!!

Now I can blog and watch Hulu all at the same time! Speaking of which, I've been Huluing it up like crazy! If you don't have a Hulu account I highly recommend getting one. It's only 8 bucks a month and you can sign in on your IPad, your IPhone, your XBox, or your computer. Hulu even has a few shows (mostly British) created exclusively for the online channel and they are brilliant! 

I first started watching a show called Misfits and then after watching the entire series, checked out some other Hulu Exclusive programs. If you do have an account, look up Misfits but fair warning, it's extremely foul and you will experience nudity, both male and female. It's hilarious though so look past the dick and balls and enjoy the awesomeness. 

They also have a show called The Only Way is Essex, it's basically a British version on the Hills but better because it has more "characters" and a lot more humorous situations. If you just can't help yourself and need to watch other people's drama unfold, I totally suggest you check it out. 

My crazy work schedule has also allowed me to get a ton of reading done. I try to stockpile books because I go through about one every three days and once again I find myself looking for new titles. You may think reading one book every three days isn't a big deal, but when you consider I'm only reading said books while on my break at work, I think it's a pretty fast rate. 

Here's the stuff I've had my nose in most recently:

I make it a point to read books right before seeing the film so everything is fresh in my mind for comparison. I would have waited to read the other books until their respective films came out but I was out of books so I just went through the final two. I don't need to add to all of the other reviews out there. The books are good, Suzanne made serious bank this year, the end. 

If you would like to know what it would be like if I wrote a book, please read this. Mindy's book is 100% everything I would ever say if I were given the chance to write a fun story. Granted I did not grow up in an Indian household nor am I a successful writer living in Hollywood, but everything else is pretty much exactly as I would have said it. I could not stop laughing. 

Speaking of which, after Mindy's book I read Tina Fey's (actually because in her book, Mindy said she wished she could have written Tina's book so logically I had to pick it up):

I would like to say that Tina's book is full of everything I'd love to say but to be blunt, she's older and has had experiences very different from my own but it's still a wonderful book. Again, I feel like Mindy's is a little funnier but Tina covers just as many different and wonderful topics and actually curses! - Alot! 
What I thought was pretty cute was how both women positively gush about Amy Poehler which is just so damn cute, they love and admire and appreciate her with all sincerity. It's really sweet. 

This week I'm starting Betty White's (yes, Betty White's) book:

As most of you know, I'm obsessed with the Bronx Zoo so this book just seems like something I'd positively love to check out. It's all about Betty's relationship with various Zoos across the country and the animals she's connected with over the past forty years. She was actually a Zoo Commissioner for 8 years! I don't even know what that is! But my birthday is coming up and I'm taking an entire week off in which I will be traveling to the Bronx Zoo and the Staten Island Zoo, so what better time to read this book then right now?!  I'll let you know what I think once I'm done but I doubt I'll be disappointed, it comes complete with full color photos-how can it be bad?!

I've also been going to a ton of movies people, there is some good stuff out there! On my birthday week I also plan to see EVERY film currently out that tickles my fancy and it looks like that will be quite a number of flicks. This week I plan to see Lockout, Safe and Snow White and the Huntsman. I know there are a few other titles I was interested in seeing but I can't remember them right now. But coming out soon is the Avengers (yes!) and What to Expect When You're Expecting (a ton of big stars AND babies?! Yes please!)

Speaking of babies-let me give a little shout out to my friend Kristen, her third girl will arrive this month on my very first day of vacation so in addition to going to my favorite place on Earth AND catching all of the latest movies, I get to hold a fresh baby girl in my arms! Happy Birthday to me!!!! And Happy Birthday to baby Bonacci, I can't wait to meet you!
