Catching Up

Well I'm back from a week on the lake; eight days without access to the internet, my Blackberry, Twitter or my blog. We caught and ate plenty of fish - trout, bass, pickeral and pike. But imagine my surprise upon my return yesterday when I discovered that the posts I had set to post automatically - didn't. My apologies dear reader. While the posts are dated as intended I only just posted them manually, yesterday. So, anything since June 28th is a week later than intended. Sometimes technology sucks.






There was one thing upon my return that made me very happy. I've won another award while I was away! But what's so special about this award? Well, while the others were for captioning pictures on fellow bloggers sites, this award was given to me on the merits of MY site.


Yep, my good blogging buddy, fellow rocknroller and zombie devotee Quirky over at Musings of a Quirkyloon awarded me the creatively-named "I Heart Your Blog" award! Thanks for the blog love, Quirk. You rock.

Welcome back!! As long as you didn't catch West Nile along with those fish it sounds like a great break.

I don't know about that blogger Quirky. I've heard some strange stuff about her, but I'm always willing to give a blogger the benefit of a doubt..so if you say she's cool...then I trust you!

nispy: Good to be back. No viruses, just yummy fish. Hope all's well with you these days.

Quirky: You're too much, girl. You're one funny (and sweet) lady.

My mornings were totally messed up while you were gone. I'd log on just to re-read your last post.

This 'displacement activity' (heh, got that from a prior post!) totally sets the tone for the rest of my day wherein I have been known to aimlessly re-read everything I come across, as if for the first time.

Now that you're back, (whew) things are back to normal. Today was so much more productive.

Missed readin' ya!

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
