Books I 've read and enjoyed this year include all five of the novels by our esteemed bk and Penny's  Jewish Thighs on Broadway, I had several books 'read to me" via Books on Tape ( my local library lends out unabridged copies) which include Memoirs of a Geisha, which I loved, The DaVinci Code which annoyed me with it's 'cliffhanging" writing style   I mean how many times can you hint about something withourt actually tellingus what it is befoer you just get annoyed and don't care anymore? and which contained toomany unbelievable elements including the 'ending" that left me feeling very dis satisfied and cheated


Kite Runner is a book I can't make my mind up about...the writing style annoyed me a little in this one too... and I found that by midway through the book I no longer cared for the narrator and wanted to give him a good slap, but I cared very deep0ly for many of the other characters in the story

I will tell you about the power of haineshisway.com.  I received a sweet e-mail from someone named Emy.  Some time ago, when we had a topic of the day regarding teachers that made a difference, Dan-the-Man had posted about his English teacher.  Well, that teacher turned out to be Emy's grandmother, and in searching her on the Internet he was led here.  Of course, Dan-the-Man doesn't know about it yet as he's been errant and truant since 12/28 - I've PMd him the e-mail and also given his e-mail address to Emy.

12/28?  Has it been that long?  Seems like only yesterday I was recalling some such childhood memory or other.

Anyway, as I said to you in my reply, BK--this is the kind of thing I love about the internet and about HHW in partic.  And I thank you for making this the kind of place where connections like this can happen.

I plan on watching this tonight, too.

Yes, George, you need to watch IN JUSTICE.  We have to support our fellow Northwest actors.  I believe that Kyle MacLachlan was born in Yakima and he graduated from the U of W.  I remember when he was doing MASS APPEAL at Tacoma Actor's Guild, he had already filmed DUNE,and he was just waiting around for it to be released.  He is quite a good actor and a very nice man.

And welcome back DR Ben and Ant.  I hope you brought back with you a recording of the full hour with Beverley on Showtime so we can hear the entire broadcast.

I'm catching up on all my TIVOd movies from this year, none of which I've even glanced at.  By the end of this evening, I'll have seen three this very day.

Jose, don't forget that the scale can be deceiving. When you work out you are losing body fat and gaining muscle and muscle weighs more then the body fat did. So the improvement from the workouts will be in the way you look and feel.

Now, stop feeling yourself. ::)

And, yes, I do know that scales can be "deceiving"...  And I also know that I've also put on some muscle over the past couple of weeks...  However... And I guess I should have mentioned this earlier... I have one of those body-fat measuring scales... And when I stepped on the scale this morning - which was the first time in two weeks - the body-fat percentage number had not budged from the last time.  -I expected at least one percentage point... So...  *However, they do advise to weigh yourself in the evenings on those types of scales, when you're body is fully hydrated since that will give you a more accurate reading.  So...

Basta!

I watched the new show "In Justice."  I enjoyed it.  Kyle McLaughlin is always nice to look at, too. ;) Since it'll be on Fridays, I can watch it right after "Ghost Whisperer," but it'll be on at the same time as "Book of Daniel," which I also want to watch.

Well.. If I do end up driving down to Richmond tomorrow/today, I guess I better get ready for bed and get some sleep.

Goodnight.

I'm off, too.  Tonight is the last night that I have to house-and-cat-sit, so I think my cat (Ebonie) will be glad to have things back to normal...and so will I.  I don't have to work tomorrow, so the whole day is free!  I have no idea what I'll do.  

Goodnight, all. ;D
