Brief Updates

Nothing majorly exciting is going on these days. But today I met one of my knottie friends, Sheri! We had a long lunch at Applebee's. Since shopping at the outlet mall got rained out, hopefully we'll meet up again for that before Shawn and I leave for Seattle. This is Sheri and me.


Tonight, I finally finished reading Love in the Time of Cholera. I don't care that it's on the list of "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die." I don't care that Oprah chose it for her book club. And I don't care that it is now "a major motion picture." I didn't like it. Next up is a book I picked up from the library this afternoon: A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby. This is the same guy that wrote High Fidelity. I really liked that movie, and I'm hoping that this book will be a major change from Cholera.


Finally...I'm pretty sure that I heard a mountain lion tonight! I've heard this same noise outside my apartment before, but I've never seen whatever animal is making it. I found videos online that have mountain lions screaming (thank you, YouTube), and I'm almost positive it's the same sound. I would link the video that has the best example of what I heard, but frankly, the pictures that are on the video are a bit too graphic for my blog. (If you really want a link to the pics of a lion eating a freshly killed deer, let me know and I'll send it to you!)

I think hearing mountain lions would make me nervous. How's that working out for you?

By the way, is Leanne safely moved? I was keeping up with her on her blog, but . . . ;)
