"Name me one thing, one, that we've gained from technology." "Electricity!" "That's one."

This year I am keeping track of the books that I read. I've never done that before, and I was inspired by Bob. I have a list of read books in my sidebar. If you glance at it, you may notice that I read four or five books a month in January, February, and March. Certainly not an amazing feat by any means, but at least it means that I was reading a few chapters a day. But then...did you notice April and May? One book per month. Wow. Sad. So I started to analyze...

Now I could argue that it is easier to read more in the winter months. The evenings are longer. It's cold outside. There aren't as many social activities. Sure, that sounds okay. Maybe I'll stick with that excuse.

Or...I could be honest. I could admit that my husband and I stopped watching television during the Lenten season, which occurred primarily during February and March. I could tell you that my husband took our laptop computer with him to work for several weeks, and frequently had to take it to evening meetings as well, thus leaving me Internetless. And then the TV-watching and Internet-browsing resumed in early April. Hmm.

Kind of makes me question how much time I spend in front of a screen. (Ironic that I would say that on my blog, isn't it?)

You've Got Mail

Yes, indeed! One of my favorite movies. It has been nine years since that movie came out. I think it's high time for Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan to do another movie together.

Maybe Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore can make another movie together in the mean time? They're kinda the ghetto version of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, neh?

I love that movie...(you've got mail). I also noticed that another one of my favorites is the same as yours...keeping the faith. I need to re-watch that someday.
