random blah update
Yesterday was a good day; went way down south (Mokena) to watch the bears get trounced by Minnesota. Minnesota! My pride is inexorably damaged. Came home and napped, and hung out with the puppers some, and finished The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve. I've falling in author-love with both her and Margaret Atwood, and have a desperate urge to read the rest of their books. I think The Weight of Water is next.

Plus, I got to babble at Pat, who, while enjoying MN, I miss lots. He always makes me laugh.

I haven't seen any movies at all in the last several months, and I need to go do that; I must go see White Oleander before it leaves the theater.

Yay! I love Margaret Atwood and Anita Shreve. Have you read Fortune's Rocks by Shreve yet? And Cat's Eye by Atwood? :)

Yes to Fortune's Rocks -- I loved it, and that house is the same one in The Pilot's Wife!

I'll have to pick up the Atwood one for my CA plane trip.

I did my Senior Seminar in college on Atwood. It was awesome!

Read Surfacing. And the Edible Woman. And Cat's Eye. And the Robber Bride.

I suppose I could go on and on but I won't. There's only one I didn't love and I think it was bodily harm. Oh wait, there was another but I don't remember the name.

We can have in-depth discussions too because I learned them.

I've read the robber bride, and liked it, though I thought the writing thing was odd.

I've got weight of water checked out from the library, and am reading _dancing girls_ right now.

It's pretty terrible.
