Bits and Pieces

Been extremely, with no time to write, so here are a few things to catch up, while I have a moment....

1) We're back online at home! I'll post a house pic soon as proof, but J HAS resolved our phone jack issue and I feel more whole now that I know I can get online here again...

2) Travelling to NYC tomorrow for a conference. Not a lot of time to hang out, but there is a stray chance I may get to have coffee with my friend who is back from SE Asia -that'd be super cool. If not, I'll take a moment to shop a bit...
For the trip, I'm taking The Marriage of Sticks by Jonathan Carroll and Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. We'll see how far I get....

3) We actually watched a whole movie Saturday! - The Big Lebowski. Very fun, loved the counterpoint of the dialogue. I did go in thinking that Donny would die at any moment, because of the Sentimental Favorites song - though maybe Jesus would kill him over a lost game or something. That didn't change my enjoyment of the movie, though.

4)We've finally discussed The Lovely Bones at bookclub. Everyone found it hard to deal with, especially those of us closer to our fathers or our pets. All in all, I liked it though. I think the message of being able to come to terms with your grief, in your own way is important and was well told. We need to deal with it in the way that we each best can, but not let it consume us, because then an even greater tragedy has occurred. Next up for bookclub - Drop City by T.C. Boyle

5) Saw a great follow-up article about the evidence that the hobbit people I mentionned here are actually a new member of the human family, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet because of general chaos in my day. Will bring it up again, most likely.

That's it for now. Could use a vacation like Sonny's, though I do know that drawing is a lot of work. Could use time not in the office, I guess is the thing. Guess I need to plan something.
