Books...love books and seem to buy way, way too many...always have
too many going on at the same time...on the nightstand at the
moment...."Bloody Confused" (Culpepper) - an American sportscaster
falls in love with English soccer; "How to be an Adult in
Relationships" (David Richo) - pretty self explanatory; "Nothing to
Be Frightened Of" (Barnes) - a disquisition on death but funny;
Four Fish (Greenberg) - a culinary history of the fish that
dominate our tables; "Life" (Richards) - was not really a Stones
fan but genius is found in strange places; "Secret Ingredients" - a
New Yorker anthology of food and drink articles; "Light on the Yoga
Sutras of Patanjali (Iyengar) - I can't explain how this one got
there (I can but not right now); "Blood over Water" (Livingston) -
written by two brothers who competed against each other in 2003 in
the 149th Oxford-Cambridge boat race...enough of all this.
Music - like jazz particularly singers, piano players and sax guys.
Stuff that's been played this weekend....Mark Murphy, John Proulx,
Kevin Mahogany, Charles Brown (!), Scott Hamilton, Gene Harris, Red
Garland, Monty Alexander, Ellis Marsalis, John Pizzarelli....it's
not all jazz so heard a little Keb' Mo' ("Just Like You" is the
greatest) and Lyle Lovett (he grows on you).
Movies - anything that is a feel good story...my kids constantly
accuse me of crying at moves (IT IS NOT TRUE!)...a sappy example
would be "One Fine Day" with George Cloony and Michelle
????....loved the King's Speech (but who didn't).
Like the ballet, dance and plays...would like to go more
Food....see good at making reservations! I like to cook with
someone too....good wine and long conversations!
