personal ramblings

It took me four and half hours to slog through today’s news. Normally I plow through it in about 2 hours. It didn’t help that I got sidetracked by c-span.org’s stream of Clarke’s testimony from today. I watched about an hour of that. It didn’t get interesting until an hour in anyway. Clarke started getting grilled on his conflicting book and ’02 press release. This world is getting more and more complicated. I might have to give up my day job just to keep up with what’s going on.

Books I’ve finished reading recently:
\Lament for a Son\
\The Problem of Pain\
\I, Robot\
\A Grief Observed\

The subject of three of those books is rather depressing, and two of them had a high emotional charge. The book I plan on reading this weekend is Night by Elie Wiesel. The subject of this book is about Wiesel’s experience in the Holocaust, so I’ll be reading yet another less-than-happy book. I need to read something happy.

This blog has become a lot less personal these past few weeks. Not sure what to think about that. Maybe it’s because my life is so boring these days. Or maybe it’s because of the heated and ominous political atmosphere. Who wants to hear my life anyway?

One thought on “personal ramblings”

  1. More interesting than my life. You actually read entire books in a weekend. I can get through a book in a month if I’m lucky. I’m about halfway through Peter Wood’s “Diversity: The Invention of a Concept.” My suggestion is, ignore current events and talk only about celebrities, gadgets, pop culture and relationships. Shallow life is more enjoyable than life devoted to the public good. That’s why the Greeks were always depressed.
