Mixed Bag

Things that make the day go faster
After a week of weird smells we gave up and called the pest control dudes. The former rat decaying in the ceiling has been removed and, well, removed.

What book I'm listening to
Had to give up on Vanishing acts by Jodi Picoult. Just not the thing for me to listen to while still grieving the loss of my father. That and it just seemed to be a downer. I dunno.

Current dominant thought: film and music
Finally saw Evita. Thanks to DVR and "digital" cable. Nope, wasn't as good as it could have been. In fact, I'll bet the stage show, which I haven't seen, did a lot more impressive job with the pagentry, riot, and other scenes. Nope. Director made some choices that kind of flattened it out. It didn't even showcase Madonna so much. Odd. But the music is still with me. The music is as moving as ever.

I watch too much reality tv. Big Brother, Hell's Kitchen, Top Chef and So You Think You Can Dance. So shoot me. We all know I'm just killing time until Project Runway starts again. Make it work, people!

Keeping the World Away by Margaret Forster, Release date: August 2007. Could be of interest to Da Vinci Code enthusiasts

Acacia by David Anthony Durham. Might have been released in June. I do not like Fantasy but I will try this. It has had a lot of blog-buzz.
