I like the Trout shirt. And an all-Vonnegut team would be tough; Montana Wildhack bats cleanup.

Sweet Charlotte"s Seventh Mistake
by Cori Crooks
her mom had 15 names 7 husbands and 10 children. She didn't know who her dad was and her mom faked cancer twice before dying from it for real. yet the scrapbook style makes it endearing. good quick read. I am amazed Cori turned out as well as she did.

I just read the last two Twilight books after years of making fun of the Twilight phenomenon. :oops:

Flame away... they were good.

And Robert Pattinson is hot.

about to dig into this one i love baseball history


One of the most amazing experiences of my life was being at Yankee Stadium for the first game after Munson's death. From the moment of silence that spontaneously turned into a roaring, extended standing ovation to Luis Tiant's masterful pitching in what turned out to be a heartbreaking loss (I want to say 2-1, could have been 1-0), it was a magical, emotional night that was rooted in baseball but transcended it.

Older? Am I now OLDER? :cry:

Yeah, I'm pretty obsessed with the Twilight thing. I read three of the four books in a week, one of them in one day. It's definitely like heroin for me.

We went to Seattle for Spring Break this year and I said lets go to the Olympic National Park so the kids can play in the snow and my wife said we can also go to Forks. I said what the hell is a Forks? The town is cashing in big time and had Twilight crap everywhere.

Fascinating and well told tale of a globetrotting serial killer. True crime doesn't get any better. But you'll probably want to sleep w/ the lights on for a while. For my money, the non fiction equivalent of Silence of the Lambs.
