What have you been doing?

Between January 1st and July 1st of this year I have done the following:

Read 38 books, counting picture books. 3 picture books, 1 graphic novel, 5 YA/Juvenile, and 29 for adults. 14 were nonfiction, 23 were fiction, and 1 was a fable. I also started, but did not finish, at least four books.

I have played numerous hours of video games as well, primarily Lego games. Sunshine introduced me to them with the two Star Wars Lego games. We have subsequently purchased Batman, Indiana Jones (that was actually a gift) and most recently Harry Potter. I also got Kung Fu Panda which has been fun, but not as much fun as the Lego games.

I have seen the following movies: Up, Wall-E, Fanboys, Office Space, Alice in Wonderland, A-Team, How to Train Your Dragon, Half-Baked, Wolfman, Capitalism: A Love Story, Kung Fu Panda, and a number of assorted documentaries and shorts that Sunshine was previewing for selection for our local film festival this summer. There are probably loads of other movies too, I'm just blanking right now.

I got engaged and started planning a wedding.

All in all, a pretty full six months. What have you been up to?

Well lets see, I don't know the number of books I've read but I know I've read a few I'd been wanting to read- The Glass Bead Game, Beatrice and Virgil and currently Once Upon a Moonless Night. I've seen a few good movies, Kickass stands out as one of the best of late. I'm terrible at video games so I tend to stay away from them. I gave what I believe was the performance of my life time as Brick in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, started a new challenging job at Wix and most recently adopted two orphaned kittens. I've had a pretty full 6 months as well, thanks for making me take a look back.
