I thought I'd try to keep this site more on the lighter side...more upbeat and geared towards the positive things in my life instead of the negative crap. Instead of just grousing about all the injustices and whatnot in my life I thought I'd share the things I like such as books, movies and the like.
After years of living on mac and cheese, frozen pizzas and take-out I yearned for more home cooked meals. Since I was living on my own there wasn't anyone there to do it but me...so I learned to cook. I'm not gourmet standards by any means but I'm not too bad and I realized that I really enjoy cooking. I have a few standards that I like and have begun experimenting. My favorites are here.
Reading Is Fundamental. I love reading. For as long as I can remember, books to me were the absolute ultimate best thing ever. They opened up new worlds and got you thinking. Then came the internet and my books got less and less attention from me. And now that I don’t really have the time to read the back of a cereal box let alone a whole book, I’ve been listening to audiobooks at work like there’s no tomorrow. Not quite the same as curling up and losing yourself in the words but it works. The point of this section is for me to share some of my favorite books. I’ll be adding them here as I can get the time. Maybe someone will find something they might not have bothered with before.
Movies rank right up there with books for me. Another form of (sometimes) mindless entertainment to take one's mind off of the everyday stuff for a short time. I tend towards any movie that is not mainstream Hollywood blockbuster type. Give me an obscure unknown film any day. That can be good in many ways, notably in that I never had any problems finding the movies I wanted when I used to go to Blockbuster! :D
The place for all the miscellaneous stuff that doesn't seem to belong anywhere else but is still important. You never know what you'll find in here!
