Books and Movies

About all I’ve had much time to do recently is read and watch TV/movies.  I had surgery on my hand on September 21st… We’ve been fighting scar tissue formation and I’ve still been on heavy narcotics for pain control.  Doing hand exercises every hour keeps my hand in a constant state of, at minimum, uncomfortableness 😦

So, I’ve figured that gives me time to catch up on reading and movie watching.

Today, I read Gone by Michael Grant.  I can’t wait to read the next one.  It’s an interesting look at human nature before adult morality sets in.  Everyone age 15 and over disappears and it’s up to those 14 and younger to look after themselves and those too young to look after themselves.   Of course there’s some mystical mutations going on, but the whole way leadership forms and develops, what happens when you throw in kids with bullying allready being developed in them… it was a great book…

And now I’m watching “Away We Go” with John Krasinski (msp?).  It’s a very interesting look at parenthood.  You have just about every messed-up parents you could probably imagine… and it’s been an interesting look at trying to get pregnant and start a family in your 30’s rather than earlier in life…  It can be slightly offensive, and I’m only half way through it, but if you can get past the language and crazy parents, I’d recommend it…
