Reading: George Eliot's Middlemarch and James Woods' How Fiction Works.

Listening to: Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago and the first three songs on my Walking Mix, which are, in order: Corrine Bailey Rae's "Paris Nights/New York Mornings," Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke" and Mel Torme's "Comin Home Baby."

Watching: [renting] "Tyson" (thank you Jen Harris), and the amazing "Rachel Getting Married" for the 2nd time, and [in theatres, but just barely] the fantastic "Fantastic Mr. Fox"

Eating: Too much chocolate, not enough fruit. Too many chips (Ruffles or Doritos) not enough salad. Too much burger, not enough tofu.

Drinking: Too much coke not enough water. Much tea, a bit of Bailey's, the odd lovely Scotch and more red wine. Red wine is good when it's good and we've found a good one, a Canadian one (Oh Canada!).

    You share the chips you are eating too many of but not the name of your good Canadian red?! Tease!

  2. I couldn't finish How Fiction Works....

  3. Good Canadian Red: Henry of Pelham Baco Noir 2007.

    Can't say I'm totally understanding How Fiction Works...

  4. I'm eating too much salad instead of you Jon-san haha.
    but still miss the big bowl of salad in Toronto...

  5. Rie-chan, you were always the better, bigger salad eater. I was always the one to drag you out for burgers in Shinsaibashi. Oh Kuaaina!

    I heartily approve of the George Eliot.

  7. Middlemarch is definitely gainging steam, though was bit of a slow start, to put it mildly.
