Good Reading

I’ve been spending a lot of time reading on the internet recently. Mostly because my U2 biography is a giant coffee-table book and when I try to read it in bed, it crushes my chest. The internet is lighter.

I’ve really enjoyed reading Meg Fowler recently. She writes, I think, in a similar fashion to how I do — I think (because I don’t know her, I am only imagining) that she probably writes very much like she talks. I like that style. I like the whole “storytelling” aspect of it. Plus, she’s funny like a funny thing that’s funny.

And then, of course, there’s our very own lovely and talented Fiona at Confessions from the Home Office. Fiona also has a lovely storytelling style, full of gentle wit. And she is my exercise guru. (Do not tell her about the snack food fest that’s been happening here this weekend — OOPS. Never mind.)

For those of you who are fans, Zach Braff has a blog. It’s kind of in newsletter format, sometimes intermittent, but he has a fairly earnest style of writing, very kid-in-a-candy-store, that makes me think that he’s just as jazzed to be part of the entertainment business as you or I would if we were suddenly plopped down in the middle of it. He seems to be a decent sort.

And then, for my own personal geekness, I’ve installed an RSS reader. So now I’m getting feeds direct to my desktop about adoption, Ethiopia, volleyball, entertainment… totally the laziest way to surf the ‘net. I like that now, the internet is my bitch, man.

And now, off to read.

  1. I do like Zach Braff. Scrubs has some great one liners.

    I enjoy reading Fiona, but I can’t comment on it. I loved the pie entry though.

    I am not at all hurt that I didn’t make the list. 😛

    Lastly, I thought *I* was your bitch.

    Sigh.

    I’m simply a fuel envying geek.

  2. How lovely that I made your list! I love knowing that people read, it’s fabulous motivation. I check out CinnamonOpus every day, too. (And, um, I ate potato chips two out of three nights this weekend, so….)

    I work with a guy who went to college wiht Zach Braff.

    Kelly – you can’t comment? I’ll take a look and see why.

  3. Fiona – I’m just teasing. I did, quite honestly, LOVE the pie entry. I’m not sure if you knew, but this is the YEAR OF THE PIE in some households.

  4. Oh, ha! I hadn’t had my coffee yet. I’m an idiot.

    Every year should be the year of the pie, if you ask me.

  5. I don’t know. Last year was the YEAR OF THE SAUSAGE. Nominees for NEXT year have included YEAR OF THE CHEESE and YEAR OF THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE.

    It’s still early. Pie might just squeeze in for another year.

    Cheese IS going to be a tough one to beat though.

    Oh, the food decisions! So very, very important.

  6. I am SO not happy with the Cheese. It is my sworn enemy.

    Therefore, if I have any veto power at ALL, I will veto the Year of the Cheese.

    The Year of the Pie still works for me, for I had lemon meringue for dessert. Homemade, no less.

  7. I vote for Year of the Chocolate Mousse, myself. I need more excuses to seize and consume its tasty wonderfullness.
