Usually, when I haven't posted in awhile, I feel all this pressure to post something lengthy and impressive, as if I'll make up for all the weeks (or months) I've missed. That way lies madness, so this will be short and hopefully sweet...

My sister's wedding in Chicago on June 30 went really well. She was beautiful, and the ceremony was too. This is about the seventh or eighth time I've been to Chicago, and I love it more every time I go. Maybe I'll say more about what I did another time, but suffice it to say, I walked a lot and rode the "L" a little. Oh, and I had Chicago-style pizza one night, and tapas another. Wow!

My third chapter is behind schedule (I wanted it done late May/early June), but I just need to insert some quotes and do a first revision, and I'll be sending it off to my committee chair. This means I'm roughly 60% done!

28 Weeks Later made me motion sick. I think it was good, but I literally had my head down and eyes closed for much of it...

Frank Norris's McTeague is a great novel. The Pit, Norris's last novel, is not as great, but it definitely has some moments.

I also developed photos from a recent trip exploring a mysterious runestone in the SE corner of a neighboring state. If I get around to it, I will send doubles of them to a certain friend of mine who may have accompanied me;)

I like The Runaways. "Cherry Bomb" was just the beginning.
