To the “actually read” list I can now add Take the Cannoli, Here On Earth by Alice Hoffman, and Harry Potter 6 and 7. I am still falling quite short of my lofty goal of reading for the snob value.
Another thing I shouldn’t admit to doing is renting and watching Ghost Rider. I don’t know why I rented it – I guess I am flirting with the idea of reversing my longstanding dislike of Nicolas Cage – and I really wish I hadn’t. It was terrible, and not in a bad-but-awesome Die Hard or Speed way. More in a Hollow Man, Premonition, why-did-you-do-this-to-me kind of way. To my credit, I also rented Confetti, and am looking forward to an evening of good British humour tonight to counteract the evils of yesterday.
