I feel like I’m always rushing around. I know some things could be cut out but I’m not cutting them out.
We went to Seattle last Tues to see the Man U v. Celtic soccer game with Kenman, Hannah and Andy. Super fun time. We took the train and I got a clue what we were getting into when they announced at 9:05a that the lounge car was open and a herd of jock-types in shorts and soccer themed t-shirts headed in that direction. We saw soccer people all over downtown Seattle. I think the game would have gotten a lot nuttier if Celtic had managed to get on the board. We had a whole section next to us in green and white striped t-shirts and drums and large quantities of high priced beer. We had a great time.
I used my time on the train to make progress on Empire Falls which I finally finished — fantastic book. I immediately jumped into Ian McEwan Atonement which was also fantastic. I had trouble transitioning into McEwan though. Both writers have such strong distinct voices that I guess I needed some sort of palate cleanser before diving into the second book. Finished it this morning. Next is a book Sinead let me borrow and I still have Life of Pi to look forward to.
