    Just finished The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women. I had to stop reading this book a few times because it made me very angry, but it was really, really interesting. You will send Christmas cards and Easter baskets to OSHA after you read it. It's about the women who painted watch dials with paint that contained radium in the 20s and 30s, and their resulting problems and the radium companies' actions. Radium is GOOD for you. It'll brighten your smile! Go ahead and put it in your mouth!

    I am awaiting delivery of this book. Figured I should add the finishing touches to my overall attitude. I have heard it's an excellent book.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I spent a year combing through that genre, and he was one of the very few writers that didn't annoy the p155 out of me with obviously embellished stories, or bad advice.

    Iíve got nowhere else to put this, but Bloom County has been amazing the past few days with the Lair series.

    I love frank so much.

    Finished A Moveable Feast (Hemingway). He's an as-shole, but it's still good writing. I really recommend it.

    Have re-started, for about the 7th time, Sketches from a Hunter's Album (Turgenev). I know I'll never finish it. The stories leave me so out of sorts and disturbed that I have to think about them for about a week after each one, and eventually I just get exhausted.
