Reading: I’ve become a baseball fan. According to THE DIVA I have multiple baseball allegiances disorder because I like more than one team (Go Angels! Go Red Sox!) Now I’m even reading books about baseball. Three Nights in August by Buzz Bissinger (author of Friday Night Lights) details Tony LaRussa’s strategy for a three-game series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs. I’m learning so much. I also keep a log of the books that I read on this page of my blog.
Watching: I can’t believe that Game of Thrones is done for the season. I just started watching (no I have no idea how I understood what was going on until about two episodes ago) and now it is done for the season. I’m considering picking up the books at some point, too. Of course there’s also Mad Men, The Big C, and Nurse Jackie. Sunday night is a big dv-r night.
Listening to: I am not so much listening to anything new, I generally find myself listening to NPR whenever I am in the car. The
embarassing fascinating part is that at least five times per week I find I start a sentence, “I heard on NPR…” Oh I also have the new Madonna album, MDNA. It is all in preparation for her concert in October.
Eating: I made this turkey meatloaf last week. I’m not a huge meatloaf lover but this was delicious.
Working on: Well really ruminating on the fact that I’ve run into people in numerous settings who when asked, “how are you?” Say something to the effect of, “It has been a tough _______ (fill in the appropriate time frame).” It seems that so many people are struggling personally, financially, physically, spiritually, and yet no one is talking about it. Why do we, as a society, struggle so much with being honest about what is really going on in our lives?
