I can't stand to see this weekend end. Dinner last night was fabulous. Good grief, my friends can cook. I brought my standard - wine, bread, and cheese (humboldt fog, shropshire blue, and a manchego)- and they made monk fish over vegetable fried rice w/ steamed spinach. YUM.

This morning I went to boot camp and then sat outside for a few hours at Caribou Coffee with "Waltz with Bashir" and, then, "Einstein's Telescope." It was beautiful out - the perfect weather for a book, my iPod, and a large nonfat latte. I love this time of year.

I can't say enough about Waltz with Bashir. I've just recently started reading graphic novels and this is among the best I've picked up. The artwork alone is reason enough to check it out but that's just the beginning. A true account from the front line of the Lebanon War, "Waltz with Bashir" is a stunning, and heartbreaking, commentary on war - both the immediate impact and the aftermath. It's a fairly quick read but it's gripping and leaves you with a reminder this is not fiction. Now I really want to check out the film.

Next up, I'm on to Einstein's Telescope: The Hunt for Dark Matter and Dark Energy in the Universe by Evalyn Gates. I'm 100 pages in and I'm loving it. This stuff is so fascinating.

I want to turn you all on to Amy Ray and the only way to do that is with her music. I can't pick among her songs so, here, have two from her new album "Didn't It Feel Kinder." : Bus Bus and Cold Shoulder. [right click/save] There's such diversity to her music, though, that I'm not sure any two songs fully reflect her style.

That's all I've got. This is my first shot cross posting from DW. Let's see how it goes, shall we?
