I’m changing my schedule. March was supposed to be no TV month, but I decided against that. It’s not that I’m super addicted to TV, quite the opposite. I barely watch it, so while it’s a worthy goal for anyone, it wouldn’t be a sacrifice for me at all, or a challenge. Furthermore, the only time I do watch TV is in the morning when my 2 girls are waking up, just before we eat breakfast. I value that those 30 minutes on the couch and cannot sacrifice that time.
So, I’m moving up “Read a book a month which was supposed to be in August. In fact, I’ve already started. So this means, I have 3 months now that I don’t have a task or goal for. So, if you have any ideas, please leave comments.
Sidenote: Amanda Overmyer just brutalized “Carry On,” looked like Cruella DeVille and sounded like she was killing a dog.
I read “The Franklin Affair: The Novel,” which was fairly ok. I don’t regret reading it, but that’s mostly because it only cost me $5 in a hardback. I ordered it on Amazon over a year ago, and it sat so long, the price dropped to a penny. I paid $4.99 in shipping. Damn UPS.
Anyway, you can read the reviews yourself, what I found interesting is that Jim Lehrer, a flaming liberal, uses the book to blast conservatives. Must be nice to use the pen as a sword. I guess it’s his right, but he can at least be a little more discreet. To me, a good use of symbolism in a book is when you don’t figure it out yourself. In this book, the evil plagarist was the author of a Ronald Reagan novel and characterized to be a fat Ann Coulter. She’s Rebecca Lee, Rush Limbaugh in disguise.
Of course, the liberal protagonist stumbles into a series of stupid mistakes which remarkably don’t affect him. Go figure.
