Overdue Library Books

  • Greg Iles: The Footprints of God : A Novel

    Greg Iles: The Footprints of God : A Novel
    Just started but already addicted. I've read most of the other books by this author and I've never been dissapointed. My favorite so far has been "Black Cross."

  • J.R.R. Tolkien: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3)

    J.R.R. Tolkien: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3)
    Reading it before seeing it on the big screen. I read the first two last year and loved them.

  • Wally Lamb: I Know This Much Is True

    Wally Lamb: I Know This Much Is True
    This is a book that is so deep and intense, there's no way to barrel through it. I've found it a bit of a roller coaster ride. I was hooked in the first chapter and then spent then next 6 chapters convincing myself to keep reading. I'm really glad I did. By the end of the book I felt I knew the characters personally. The author does an excellent job of drawing you into the story. I highly recommend it. It's very long, ~900 pages, but well worth it. (*****)

Popcorn with Genuine Imitation Butter

  • Just Married (2003)
    I went into this movie with low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. It's mostly slapstick/situation comedy but was quite amusing. Ted and I both enjoyed it. (7/10)
  • High Noon (1952)
    If you haven't seen it - rent it! Although I did feel like my parents... "Isn't that so and so? Is he still alive? Wasn't he in...?" Great drama and suspense. 9/10
  • Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
    Great movie for the whole family. Erin and Teddy both enjoyed it and they usually only like cartoons. It's also a great way to learn about another culture - the kids had a lot of questions about the Indian culture after seeing this movie. (8/10)

On the Tube

  • American Chopper
    Yes, they're dysfunctional - but they make such cool choppers!
  • The Apprentice
    I accidentally watched the first episode. Now I'm hooked. Damn these reality shows.
  • ER
    This is the only show I watch religiously.

We had a week like that too. Lillianna's fever didn't go as high as your son's did but it went between 99.9 and 102.
She had a viral infection. The doctor said it was kind of like croup. Her cough was so bad she couldn't always catch her breath. She was so afraid she was going to choke and die. She kept losing her voice so she had to use sign language and finger spell everything to me.
At one point during a coughing fit she spelled PANIC!
It was a rough week during her school vacation. It sure was.Especially on her clingy day when she wouldn't leave my side to let me shower.Tuesday was a pajama day!!
Hope your sick one is recovered by now.
