– After the unofficial vote yesterday, I don’t think I made much progress convincing myself (or Maile) that watching Lost on dvd fits within the parameters of our no-tv-for-a-year rules. Bryan, I’ll be returning the box to you bright and early Monday morning, hoping to re-borrow it on January 1st, 2011. For anyone who is counting, the final tally I calculated was 6-6 (many people never said what they actually thought, so I had to use the tone of their comment to decide which way they were leaning…I know, I know, a totally subjective method)
– Check out this link to the Fireside Writer’s Conference being held this fall. We’ve got one speaker’s bio and picture up (but you have to go there to see who it is), and many more to come. (Editor’s note – make that two; now you have twice as many reasons to click over and take a look).
– I’m about to go on a guest-posting tour to a blog near you. Let me know if you’re interested in having me swing by your site and do a guest-post (email me at shawnsmucker(at)yahoo.com).
– Currently reading: Deep Church, A New Kind of Christian, A House For Mr. Biswas (still), and the most recent volumes of The Missouri Review and Glimmer Train (yes, someone throw me a life preserver because I’m drowning in books)
– Spend these days listening to: Innocence Mission, Over the Rhine, Sting, Natalie Merchant and David Gray
So what are you reading? Listening to? Looking forward to about the weekend?
