"This American Life"

I haven't listened to NPR in alsmost a year. I used to listen to them in the morning but all the news about Iraq really made me sick. I have recently discovered "This American Life" on Showtime. It gives me a NPR fix without the depression. I usually have it on in the background while I am blogging or cleaning. It makes for some interesting fodder. They are some really wacky stories/people out there. Plus Ira Glass reminds me of Cameron from Ferris Bueller :)

I'm a celebrity!

Well, not really. I did a presentation for work a few months ago in Ocean County, NJ. My contact there took some photos and a couple of weeks ago my photo ran along a story. One of my bosses brought the article to work. I'm so kewl :)

Holly Black

I picked up two teen fantasy novels that have piqued my interest in writing again. Holly Black writes gothic, funny and intriguing novellas that you find yourself wrapped up in. She has also written a series called the "Spiderwick Chronicles" that have been optioned into movies (as have the rest of her books). I have been toying with the idea of writing some teen novels based on some of my life experiences but the fantasy genre has been very compelling. I'll start some writing and see where it takes me.

Home happenings.

Now that I am finally home I can concentrate on working on the house. My K and I are somewhat satisfied with the condition of the yard. Things have grown in nicely and we are enjoying sitting under our trees and BBQing. I started two compost bins. I attended a class given by our county a couple of weekends ago and purchased a bin. The second bin is just some leaves that I have out in the open. Last night I went to the library and borrowed a book on vermicomposting (or composting with a worm bin). It looks rather easy to make and maintain. This weekend I am going to go out and look for a suitable worm habitat (aka tupperware bin from Walmart).

Tornando warnings, think I saw the wicked witch.

I am halfway thru my final work trip (until the fall anyway). I was in the Venango county area and had a nice lunch in Franklin, PA. There is a good pizza place on the main street and a nice cofee shop. I had a nice hour or so there and then headed back to the hotel to get some work done. Last night we had a Tornando watch and the weather got really nasty here. Apparently something touched down near Oil City (where I had my meeting). I thought about staying in that area when I was planning my trip, I am glad I didn't! That was a rough couple of hours last nite. I cant wait to get back home. There is a Wegman's in Erie (where I will be on Thursday) I am def going to hit that!
