Ola! Back from Cuba!

Coming back from vacation is never fun.  Not only do you leave behind a new place and in some cases better weather, but you always come back to a bunch of work that didn't miraculously get accomplished while you were gone.

My Monday morning has taught me that I am behind in EVERYTHING, and I'm trying to tell myself that it's okay.  I've at least looked at my 100 work and 30 personal emails that I missed and I'm back to foods that don't make my stomach churn... including eating real vegetables (not frozen or boiled to death) and NO alcohol.  Yes, this is a good thing.

I'm gradually going to get back into the swing of things with the blog too.  I have finished 4 books (two fiction, two non-fiction) that I have yet to review, as well as a classic animated movie from 1978 [the first in hopefully a series of book-related classic movie mini-reviews].  There are 5 points for you if you can guess which movie this is, based on this small description.  I'm going to be getting to all of this shortly, and since I have already read all the remaining book club books for the year, I should finally have some more time.

I've also put together a new list for the book club, that I'll eventually share.  Members are currently voting on their favourites, and I'll publish the results when they're all in.

It's good to be home.

Hmm... would that be the trippy Ralph Bakshi adaptation of Lord of the Rings?

Welcome back!

Good guess, Taylor... but not the correct answer.

Just as well... if you haven't seen it, I'd skip it.
