Round-up

It's been a while, but here's what I'm up to...
Reading - The Twenty-Seventh City by Jonathan Franzen. I think I wrote about reading The Corrections a while ago and mentioning that it took me a while to get into it. This one had me from the very beginning and it's been hard to put down and go to bed each night. I'm obviously loving it and I'll let you know if that changes by the time I'm done.

Listening - Hypocrite alert! I wrote a while back that I don't really like live music and then shortly thereafter went to see Arcade Fire. This time I've got tickets to see Andrew Bird at Memorial Hall. In my defense, I have always said (to myself) that if I had the opportunity to see him again I would (documentation!) so I could hardly pass up the chance.

Buying - prints from Berkley Illustration. I have wanted some of these for the longest time so now that I have a new space to decorate I'm switching up a lot of my old artwork for new stuff. I ordered the cheetah, the doe, and the goat and I think they'll fit nicely in the half bath. I love the little descriptions of each print so I will probably print those out and label each one once they are hung. These are really just the poor student substitute for Catherine Ledner's prints. Words cannot explain how much I love those photos.
