Time Off...

I worked seven days straight after Christmas, so I felt I truly deserved the previous three days I've had off. They have been quite rejuvenating. The following things I got accomplished...

-- Written two fairly short posts to try and get the blogging back on track.
-- Watched Borat. (Hilarious.)
-- Watched We Are Marshall, of which I plan on writing about very soon. (Cried.) (Melissa, you were right.)
-- Watched the first five episodes of the first season of Scrubs. (Laughed AND Cried.)
-- Read Cormac McCarthy's latest novel, The Road. This book was on just about everybody's "Best of 2006" lists, so I had to give it a shot. It's the best work of fiction I've read in a long time.
-- Had lunch with my friend Jonathan.
-- Had a New Years night dinner with a bunch of UBC'ers.
-- Began work on a chapter of a possible book.
-- Changed the light bulbs in my room. I really wanted to use those expensive ones that will save the universe, but Fiesta didn't carry them. Next time, though.
-- Took naps.
-- Woke up at 5:00 every morning to watch Imus in the Morning. He has become my news source and he always has the best guests call in.
-- Began reading David Garrow's Pulitzer Prize winning book "Bearing the Cross," which from what I understand is the definitive biography of MLK's adult life. It's already more interesting than any history book I've ever read.
-- Began reading Joshua. (The Bible one.)

Well, that's a lot of stuff. And you know what? I didn't think about work hardly at all. What a great feeling.

That's it for now. Good night.
