Just Read

I finished reading this last night. I started reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" last week and it was slow going. I kept wondering what all of the fuss was about. Boy was I proven wrong. This novel exploded into something more by part three. I had to force myself to go to sleep at one o'clock in the morning Thursday night as I had to wake up at 5:30 to go to work. It's been some time since I have found myself wanting to forgo sleep in order to finish reading a novel.

Today I...

  • watched five episodes of Mad Men in a row from season 1
  • came to the realization that I desperately want a telephone bench
  • finished reading Lynn Barber's memoir An Education
  • watched a lovely video from Regina Spektor "Somedays"
  • decided to get bangs
  • also decided to purchase a Nikon DSLR, perhaps a D5000
  • pondering what to read next...perhaps I will read Gogol for the first time
  • have spent entirely too much time on the interwebs

From Lynn Barber's An Education

My knowledge of the world was based on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, George Eliot, and the Brontes and none of them had a word to say about living on a kibbutz or making Molotov cocktails.
