Happy November!

I fig­ure it’s past time I check in again. Obvi­ous­ly, I’ve giv­en up on the Blog365 thing. I did make it 9 months or so, at least.

Katie turned 18 at the end of Octo­ber, so she vot­ed in the elec­tion for the first time. I’m real­ly tick­led that her first time was so his­toric! We’ll all be vot­ing in the Sen­ate run-off too, of course. I real­ly hope Jim Mar­tin makes it.

I turned 42 this week. I nev­er do under­stand peo­ple moan­ing about get­ting old­er, reach­ing a par­tic­u­lar age. It’s cer­tain­ly bet­ter than the alter­na­tive, right?

I haven’t been read­ing near as much late­ly, because my eyes don’t want to focus and I have trou­ble con­cen­trat­ing. I’m re-read­ing C.J. Cher­ry­h’s For­eign­er series, since it’s eas­i­er to fol­low some­thing familiar.

I fell into watch­ing NCIS some­how, prob­a­bly because I got all caught up on all three CSIs. I’ve watched True Blood, but I don’t like it near­ly as much as the orig­i­nal nov­els by Char­laine Har­ris. It’s much dark­er, and nobody is near­ly as nice/sympathetic. I don’t even like Sook­ie much, Sam Mer­lotte is an ass, and Jason—goddess, why give that waste of flesh so much screen time? Why all the added empha­sis on sex and sub­stance use? As usu­al, the South­ern accents are abominable.

I start­ed watch­ing sea­son 3 of Dex­ter, but I’m just not enjoy­ing it as much as the first sea­son, for some reason.

So then I was lured into watch­ing Crim­i­nal Minds, large­ly due to Eliz­a­beth Bear’s reg­u­lar episode reviews (post­ed to her LJ).

At this very moment, Sam and Katie and I are watch­ing the first DVD of Car­nivále. That is one weird, but beau­ti­ful, show. The preach­er char­ac­ter looks a lot like our friend James Jowers.

Sam and I watched Iron Man Fri­day night, I think it was. It was fun but loud. Good thing I did­n’t try to see it in the theater!

  1. Always love­ly to hear from you!

    And yes — what a won­der­ful way to start voting!

    I’m glad to read your review of True Blood. I got all excit­ed when I heard it was based on Ms. Har­ris’ nov­els — now I’ll know to keep my expec­ta­tions low. It’s a pity, real­ly — it does­n’t seem like it would be hard to do it well.

  2. Wow, I can’t get my mind around the fact that Katie’s old enough to vote — that is so awe­some, for her and for Amer­i­ca! Shachaf is a year younger than she is, but of course, I see him grow daily. 

    Hap­py birth­day to you, belatedly. 

    And did you see my new project? (link in the web address). I’m putting togeth­er a team with­in my com­pa­ny that will be ded­i­cat­ed to trans­lat­ing new media: blogs, twit­ter streams, youtube and oth­er videos. It’s very excit­ing, and appar­ent­ly quite rare: most peo­ple assume that all blog­gers blog sole­ly for fun, and are just sur­prised if their ven­tures make money.
    Con­de­scen­sion is a very bad busi­ness prac­tice… …I hope to pick up the mar­ket that oth­er trans­la­tion agen­cies can’t even see.

  3. Dena, I have trou­ble believ­ing she’s “grown up” too 🙂 

    I did­n’t know about your new ven­ture, but I vis­it­ed and it looks fascinating!
