Fridays Rule

Friday tends to be a good day here. It is the one day that tends to be a bit quieter than the others. Kind of the same at home, as the teenagers stage a mass exodus on Friday afternoon, and tend to make only sporadic appearances until late Sunday evening...and even that will be changing with school ending this next week! I may never see my 16 year old again :-0

Oh, man, I have to tell you how much I am enjoying The Time Travelers Wife. It manages to tell a complicated story in an understandable way. The whole thing makes perfect sense thus far and is quite lovely. I've been doing soooo much reading lately and while most of it has been good enough, I have to say that this is one I would really be comfortable recommending to others.

Lately I have been listening to more CDs than radio. It gets like that occasionally, even with the XM. Sometimes you just want that much control over what you listen to, you know? I am playing old and new favorites. Most recently "Tonight and the Rest of My Life" by Nina Gordon. My honey sent it to me, it has our song on it, and I love it! I've also been listening to that Decemberists one I mentioned before, and Billy Bragg's "William Bloke", which I enjoy and has some pleasant associations for me....Oh, and the "Ray" soundtrack (which is the only Ray Charles I own, so I guess I am a pretend Ray Charles fan!) No, I love it. Very hot and sexy stuff.

Thanks, veovus! I finished it pretty quickly, couldn't put it down. It is one of the best things that I have ever read also.
