Happy new year, one and all! In less than two hours, 2005 is upon us.
Howie’s doing the solo home-theater thing, watching Mel Gibson’s We Were Soldiers DVD on his laptop, headphone-clad and sitting in a dark office. I just didn’t feel like watching a movie, so I’m snuggled up in bed with my doggies and surfing the web on my laptop. Every once in a while I hear Howie exclaim, “oh, man…” and “aaaargh”. He could just as easily be watching football, so similar are the exclamations. There’s just no, “yes, baby! Yes! Go…Go! Go!”
I love Melly Boy, so I’ll have to watch it another time. I think we’ll have to enjoy a Mel-A-Thon some night soon and rent some movies of his we’ve not seen yet. We did that once with the Lethal Weapon movies once and really enjoyed them.
Book-wise, I’m reading Robert Serling’s so-so thriller Something’s Alive on the Titanic. It was published in 1990, a few years after the real-life 1985 discovery of the Titanic’s wreck. The foreshadowing is terribly obvious, but it’s not a bad read thus far. Sarah Graves’ The Dead Cat Bounce is next on my list since it’s a library book. It was the author’s debut, first in her “Home Repair is Homicide” mystery series and I’m looking forward to reading the lot of them.
