The Rookie's Library September 7, 2006

What I'm Reading:

"The Man who Ate Everything" by Jeffrey Steingarten (he's the food critic for Vogue and one of the judges on Iron Chef America, and his style reminds me of humor writers like Patrick F. McManus)

"The Practice of the Presence of God" by Brother Lawrence (the monk the book is about practiced experiencing Christ's presence in every part of his daily life, and I want to do that too)

"Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget" by Marianne J. Legato (it's an outline of what they're calling "gender-specific medicine" which is a good invention, but it's not a Christian book by any stretch of the imagination; a good read for the biology, but don't apply the morality)

What I'm Watching:

DVDs, looking for scenes with someone making spectacular jumps:
"Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"
"The Goonies"
"The Longest Yard"
(Watching movies at work.. I love my job, I love my job, I love my job...)

What I'm Hearing:

Irish punk bands who aren't really Irish:
Dropkick Murphys--multiple albums
Flogging Molly--multiple albums

A Recipe I'm proud of: Lentil Soup

1 can beef broth
2 cans water
1/2 cup chopped canned spinach
1 tsp. chopped garlic
4 green onions, chopped fine
black pepper
1 cup dry lentils

Put it all in a pot at the same time and simmer for an hour.
