Ho-hum, ho-hum…

My weekend? Boring. But that was of my own choosing. I’ve felt anti-social the past couple of days, and therefore have spent massive amounts of time reading. Yesterday I finished “Friday Night Lights”. Fantastic book. Yes it’s about football (I’ve been in a little bit of a mourning period with no football and no hockey), and how it’s an obsession in Texas, but it’s also about the oil boom, a way of life and ultimately, about the cost of success. Fascinating stuff. And did you know that the first George Bush is actually a Yankee – from Connecticut?

With that book finished, I had a hard time deciding what to read next. Satire? Political science? History? I settled on “The Kite Runner”. It’s been disturbing thus far, but obviously good enough to have me read the first 100 pages this morning. That doesn’t happen too often. Hopefully the next 300 will be just as good.

Since Heather was having people over for supper and I didn’t feel like sticking around and visiting, I decided to go and catch a movie. “Finding Neverland” is the story of J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan. This movie is wonderful. Well worth the two hours. It’s really quite brilliant. And the ending – tears were in full force. I’ve never been a fan of fantasy books, but this movie has given me new insight into Peter Pan – I might read the book.
