I'm still trying to figure out how four days could go by so fast. More to the point, I'm wondering what happened to the months of June, August, September and October. I'll be slowly trying to get back to a normal schedule over the next few days, including opening Bloglines for the first time since last Tuesday, so bear with me. To start it off, here a few thrown together items mostly of a personal note, just to get the typing tips warmed up and ready to go:
- I know I said that I would be reading nothing but short story collections at least until the end of the year, but I forgot that a few reads would be out of my control--the nominated Litblog Co-op titles. Yes, we are still active. Just took some time off to reorganize. I think there will be an announcement in the next few days so I won't spoil anything here, but let's just say that the books chosen this time around are all quality and made me happy to be reading novels again, even if I had to cram them in under deadline.
- I got around to seeing No Country for Old Men this weekend. I'm going to try to put together something more detailed later on, but I will say that this was one of those rare cases that I liked the movie better than the book. Also, did anyone else feel like this was a strange, Coen-CorMacish 21st Century-revision of The Andy Griffith Show?
- Sick of Christmas? We're still a week away from December 1st, over four weeks away from the day itself, and you can't get away from it. Can't we all just digest our turkey and enjoy a break between the holidays before we let the yule overtake us?
- More later.
