Happy 2011!

Welcome back to yet another one of my returns from an unexplained blogging hiatus.  Between a new, more demanding job, thrice weekly Muay Thai sessions, and a holiday trip to Sydney, I have hardly had time to do laundry, let alone blog.  I'll work to carve out more time, though.

I've seen The King's Speech, Hereafter, and The Fighter, and I am finally going to watch Inception on BluRay tonight.  I've read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and have loaded the other two Larsson books onto my new Kindle, along with Infinite Jest, Water for Elephants, and The Hunger Games.  Over the holidays I read a new nonfiction book called Blue Ribbon Babies and Labors of Love, about the racial and social politics of adoption in America today.

Big Love is back on for its final season, and so far it's off to a better start than I thought it would be after the craziness of last season.  That said, it does make me miss TLC's Sister Wives.  I bought myself the Lord of the Rings trilogy on BluRay for Christmas, as well as seasons 1-3 of Mad Men.  Gotta love Amazon Gold Box deals.  So uh, yeah.  And Parks and Rec is back with a whimper, but I'll try to do a full Thursday night comedy rundown this week.

I've missed you, internet box where I type things I think!
