Currently Reading: What Is The What: The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng by Dave Eggers


Deconstructing Penguins: Parents, Kids, and the Bond of Reading

Watching: Rome, complete seasons 1 and 2 (Titus Pullo is on trial at the moment! He will be condemned to death in the Arena! Soon Lucius Vorenus will come—reluctantly—to his rescue in a scene that has no gory rival! Why can I not let this show go?! Why am I yelling?! I don't know!)

Managing: the penning of thank you notes

Sweating: the penning of thank you notes

Contemplating: Wii Fit

Anticipating: Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Resisting: a cold

Enjoying: the sight of Risa lounging in a chair and reading Roddy Doyle's hilarious (from what she tells me) The Giggler Treatment

Trying: to drink more water (I do this every January; every January I pretty much fail)

Appreciating: The painting by Joy Mallari that serves as the inspiration for this year's Romeo Forbes Children's Storywriting Competition
