I haven't been posting on this blog for a while, as I've become completely obsessed with paper crafting as a hobby. My blog Lens is the most active right now, with pictures of cards I've made and the occasional photo. I occasionally post on Twitter.
- The best book I've read so far this year is Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier, about a woman who made a lot of great fossil discoveries in England in the early 1800's, but didn't receive a lot of recognition because she was female and from a working class family.
- I'm current reading The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris. It is engaging, yet difficult to read. You can't help but put yourself in the shoes of the protagonist or his wife and feel the stress of their situation.
- I thoroughly enjoyed the Vancouver Olympics. I felt like I got to see almost everything I was interested in and that the coverage by NBC was better. There was a lot less emphasis on medals, and gold medals in particular (which we all understand is the goal and motivation for the athletes, needless to say) and the winners from other countries were recognized and interviewed. It seemed like there were fewer biographical pieces and the ones they had were generally shorter.
- The TV show Lost is in its final season and it boggles the mind to imagine that any of it will make sense in just few months.
- I enjoy American Idol, but I honestly can't imagine the show without Simon. The other judges' comments are a lot more relevant this season, but he's the most straight-forward.
