Okay, so, this past weekend was gorgeous, weather-wise. It could’ve been any more beautiful without being … I dunno. October. Cool, partly cloudy, low humidity … heaven.
I didn’t get anything from the library to read last time we went. I didn’t finish the books I had from the time before and returned them, so I have nothing for books to talk about. However, I’ve been doing a LOT of reading just the same. For one thing, you won’t be disappointed if you check out Sara Fryd’s poetry. I’ve been hooked, and I don’t even like poetry all that much. (I know, I know, I’m a philistine. Sue me.) But every time I see a post by Sara, I’m off to read it. And I’ve not failed to get something from every single one.
Sara’s not alone in creating my addiction to poetry though. No, no. Calliopespen is another poet penning poetry which compels me to read every line, despite my profession of ignorance on poetry’s structure and styles. I don’t need to be a critic to appreciate the wording and beauty she injects into those nuggets of gold.
But, like Billy Mays used to say (I miss him), I’m not done yet.
If you like poetry, you’re also going to enjoy Jaymie Thorne’s blog. Another person who can make poetry appealing and visual even for a clod like me. There’s so much to the lines I can read them a few times and still have to check the comments to make sure I didn’t miss the point (I usually do). Hey, I don’t know art, but I know I like it.
So I read a lot, even if it’s not a book. And I can see in those poet’s lines ways of capturing visual images in concise wording … something which can benefit any writer. Thanks, gang; I appreciate you sharing your work.
My beloved and I enjoy watching The Next Food Network Star, and it’s become an annual tradition. We cheer for our favorites, jeer at those we don’t like, have fun, talk crap behind their backs, and generally carry on as we always do. This year, we felt – so far, at least – we agreed with the selection committee’s choices, if not their timing. Sunday night, though, that changed. We’re not happy, and most of the world agrees with us. Check out their site and get a gander at those comments for further information. Next week will decide whether we ever watch the show again or not.
I was approached by a company last week to do a software review of their product suite. I’ll be testing the software and putting my notes together for a full review, coming soon to this spot. Watch for that. I’m excited about it. I also dropped the ball; I was supposed to download and install the program over the weekend but sort of fell asleep at the wheel. I’m going to do that today.
Other than that, not much happened here. As per usual.
How was your weekend?
