Blogs for the week of Dec. 7-11

Last week for 2009 – oh, where has the time gone…

last week, i read andrew zow’s autobiography – zow was a quarterback at alabama my last three years i was there – so i learned a bit more about the drama that was going on back then – some of it i knew – most of it i didn’t – anyway, i enjoyed it so much i read all 175 pages in a day – of course, some of my enthusiasm might have been for the bama game

i also read “the year of the hangman” – highly recommendable – a historical fiction book with an alternate history – that the british had won the revolutionary war in 1776 and now it’s 1777 – the story is told from the POV of a british teenager who gets sent to the colonies – and his adventures

finished that book in two days and then read on “paradise lost” and the article on sports illustrated’s sportsperson of the year – derek jeter – before coming back home and getting eli gold’s autobiography – gold is bama’s sports announcer – i saw him in the press box saturday – great guy – good book so far (36 pages – i did have to watch a dvd yesterday evening – hoosiers – indiana basketball – pretty cool)

guess that’s it for now – hope your last week of journaling is great


Week of Journals, Nov. 30 – Dec. 4

Okay, so I read the late Senator Kennedy’s autobiography over T-Day weekend – pretty good – one lesson I learned was that politicians have to be optmistic in public – or at least they should be

I’m now reading “Paradise Lost” by John Milton – or re-reading it – written in the 1600s so every time I read it, I learn something new (this is the second time to read this book – read it originally a year ago)

Let’s see if this works and you can respond


I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention

I know this will come back to haunt me at some point, but in case you truly are lost w/o your community of Twilight support, there is a Twilight Convention this summer in Dallas, Texas – imagine, you could be surrounded by the actors and fellow fans – I’ll leave it to you to figure out what the website is that has the information… oh, and if you go to TwiCon 2009, don’t let me know:)

 honestly, i thought the whole thing was funny when I read about it (yes, i am still reading:)
