Reading: Am currently devouring Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, which is just staggering. It’s one of those books I’ve been wanting to read for quite some time, and now I’m really getting into it. One of the blurb quotes say it’s a novel-lover’s novel, inasmuch as it recreates a world – so far, I’m inclined to agree. Also on the nightstand are The Weaker Vessel: Women’s Lot in 17th Century England, The Hours, and my nemesis, Anna Karenina.
Watching: After a cheese fest at Hannah’s (I think the nadir was when we decided watching The Lizzie Maguire Movie was a good idea…I blame the red wine), I have three new, shiny, pretty DVDs from Amazon rentals to watch in the next week or so – The Terminal, Dodgeball, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Projects: To finish writing my thank you notes for birthday and Christmas (or should that be start?). To find a good muffin recipe to use in my new and spangly star shaped muffin pans (thanks, Naomi!). To work out how long it takes me to walk into work, as it looks like that’s going to be my best option when the snow comes (I know, how 19th century).
I can’t believe I go back to work soon. Gah….underprepared!
