when i'm not reading

i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again. this is my favorite meme. and not just because Ginger is an elite book blogger with incredible design talent. mostly, i adore this meme because she poses a great question for us to discuss and share more about who we are as a reader and as a person behind the blog. she’s insightful, that way.

so, without further gushing, let us get to this week’s question!

When You're Not Reading: What occupies your time when your nose isn't stuck in a book?

quite simply, i'm gaming or watching something rad.

what my gaming entails:
video games!
having just recently purchased the latest Zelda, that's been occupying a good chunk of my (and my hubby's) time. and i wouldn't want it any other way. i love Zelda the most of anything i do ever.
i've also been giving a decent amount of time to finishing Batman: Arkham Asylum. it's so creepy and awesome and i can't even breath half the time because i'm so skerd.
i almost always have a side game of Pokemon rolling as well. currently replaying Diamond.

board games! 
my husband has a serious board game obsession. i wager he spends more hours on Board Game Geek than the rest of his internet browsing combined. 
we also have a closet full of board games, euro games, dice games, strategy games...SO many games. and i love them so. 
my favorite game as of late is called Quarriors. it's a blend of Magic: The Gathering and Dominion. also, i've won every time i've played. HOLLA.
in fact, we are having friends come in a couple weeks for a board game sleepover weekend extravaganza. that's right y'all, sleepovers didn't stop when i graduated high school. we continue to have sleepovers because they are the BEST EVER.

what my watching of rad things entails:
my favorite tv shows of all time include Avatar: The Last Airbender, Batman: The Animated Series, LOST, Spaced, and Arrested Development.
i have been known to watch cheesy SyFy movies.
i also rewatch the LOTR extended editions monthly. yeah, monthly.
the hubs and i are also severe Netflix addicts.
i'm anticipating a LOST rewatch starting around christmas time that will somehow be incorporated into the blog. just fyi.
i love the Pride and Prejudice with Matthew McFayden. he is so sexy i can hardly stand it.
my favorite Disney movie is Sleeping Beauty. mostly because i love Merryweather.

so what do you guys do when you aren't reading or blogging? let me know and be sure to link it up over at GReads!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. Pretty sure you forgot *emailing Ginger* on this list ;-) haha just kidding. I love that you love Merryweather!! and... previously on LOST. Damn I miss that show.

  2. My hubs and I don't play as many board games as we used to, but I think it's because I burned out on it since our wedding was board game themed. Yep, we're nerds. :D

  4. Cheesy SyFy movies are the best! My fav generally involve mutated or prehistoric animals of some kind.

  5. New follower hopping through :)

    I'm not much of a gamer, but I am I huge TV junkie! My tv obsession is Supernatural.

    Here's my Friday Memes

  6. I'm still going nuts over Arkham Asylum since I have yet to finish it. And I need to catch up on my video games! I haven't had time to play these days because I'm so busy, but I hope I do eventually.

  7. I love Zelda! I really need to get the latest game, it looks like so much fun! I really love board games and would love to play them more, but its so hard to get people together to seriously play haha I'm glad to see someone still has sleepover parties and plays!

    Hope that you have an amazing weekend!

  8. Ginger - I KNOW. on the daily, yo.
    Tara - you are my hero.
    Ash - YES.
    Molly Jo - that's like half of them. I LOVE IT.
    Aechia - I LOVE SUPERNATURAL! you are most welcome here. :)

  9. Alexa - YES. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
    KTJ - Skyward Sword is bomg, yo. And i hear you with the board games. Find some 2P games you like and get going!

  10. LISA!! My husband and I also love board games- his family got me started on them too!! Have you played Jamaica, Tobago, Lancaster or Finca? Those are my faves!!

    Where do you live again...? Lol I think we'd have awesome game nights!

  11. My fiance and I love board games, but we barely ever play because we don't have anyone to play with. Ever play Apples to Apples? Yeah, we make it a team sport by reading each others minds and knowing which card was put down by each other. It disturbs everyone else playing :P


Hey you! What do you have to say?
