Status Report

I am currently:

~ Enjoying October–or High Holy Month as I call it.  My fruit chutney has been made.  Pumpkin bread is in the works.  Fall decorations are out.  The bike ride to school along the river is amazing–even in the rain.

~ Working to make an upcoming submission deadline.  If I don’t make it, I suck, right?

~ Enjoying the new Dar Williams and Shawn Mullins albums–and basking in the afterglow of their concert last month in September.  I’d like to post about all that and some other music related items some day.

~ Looking forward to the new Cure and Killers albums!  Awaiting the Teddy Thompson album I ordered from Amazon.

~ Working on the Mid-Term exam for my classes.

~ Trying to get through the Raymond Carver collection I picked up in August while visiting my nephew in North Carolina.  SO good–it’s just taking me forever to read non-school stuff this semester.

~ Looking forward to eventually reading the new Sarah Vowell book, The Wordy Shipmate.  I caught her on Talk of the Nation and The Daily Show yesterday. (Click to watch the clip, seriously!)  Tried to get through to NPR, but failed. 🙁  I love her.

~ Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2008!

~ Listening to the Greatest American Hero theme.

~ Going to see The Mushroom Picker at Notre Dame tonight.  It has two of my favorite things–solo performance and World War II.

~ Surviving Notre Dame home football weekends at the restaurant.

~ Being annoying by the obnoxious neighbors across the street.

~ Slightly bored with the Election.  Can we just get it over with already?  Though I am enjoying the Tina Fey as Palin bits.  Amazing.

~ Still going through Australia photos!

~ Trying to keep up with everything else.

~ Thinking that should about cover it for now. 🙂

Punkins for Sale!
