What have you been reading? This week I've been trying to demolish:
Trust me, if you buy this you'll get your money's worth. I can't believe I used that expression, but I'm standing by it. The collection is jammed with short stories. Sometimes I get so immersed in them that I turn the page expecting to start the next chapter and then get sad because it's, well, a short story and not a novel. But then I cheer up because there's more amazing stories to come.

What have you been watching? In the last week I have seen these movies in the theater:
Happy go Lucky
Wendy and Lucy
I really wish that the tag line for Notorious was "No dream is too biggie."
