Won't complain about the weather (even though it's been raining off and on forever and the humidity has got to be around 1,000%) because compared to the rest of the south we've gotten off easy. My heart goes out to those poor people. I don't think I could live where tornadoes are a regular occurrence, I'd have to move. We've kicked around the idea of moving to southern Florida, but the thought of hurricanes and tornadoes puts us right off the idea.
Saw where Bob Hoskins died yesterday, always enjoyed him. I think my favorite role of his was as Vivian Van Damm, Judi Dench's stage manager in Mrs. Henderson Presents. Great little movie if you've never seen it.
We got tired of wanting DVD's that are available in the UK, but being unable to watch them on our American DVD players, different format, so I broke down and bought a region-free DVD player. Bored in the rain yesterday Mac hooked it up to our tv and it worked perfectly. Of course ordering DVDs from Britain is expensive, so I will get foreign ones from Amazon and stock up when we're in England this summer.
Finished 2 really different books this week, the first was the very short and funny Candide by Voltaire (I'd been meaning to read it for years), enjoyed it very much. The other was of course very different, the more than 1,000 page Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson, the continuation of his Stormlight Chronicles. I enjoy his writing very much, though I about got a hernia from lugging the book around the last couple of weeks.
