One of my all time favorite albums is Nine Inch Nails “Pretty Hate Machine”. I received this cd as a gift recently and was so happy to have it in another form other than my old tape from my college years. I listened to the whole album this morning, I know it’s Sunday but good music is good music no matter what. The most popular track on the album is “Head Like A Hole”. I had a NIN t-shirt for years in the early 90’s and I would listen to this album over and over again with my friend Erin as we rode around in her well loved but beat up Honda Prelude she had named EDDIE after Eddie Vedder. She also had a black dog (Black Lab and Cocker Spaniel mix) named Zepplin. If you want a good jolt of energy than this is the song for you today!
How did we get to Sundayand the SUNDAY SALON again so quickly? Time has flown by this past week. I have gotten a lot read but not all in one place today. After having lunch with my friend Rene at an AMAZING burger joint (yes for you Oki dwellers- I said BURGER JOINT!) and then running a few errands I headed home and to my study. I read up on some news, checked out Perez Hilton’s site and then caught up on some friends blogs. After about forty-five minutes of this type of reading, I hit the guest bed with the book I’m reading at the moment, “Nineteen Minutes”. I didn’t pick it up at all on Friday or Saturday, so after refreshing myself with a page of so, I settled in to reading before giving in thirty minutes later and taking a nap.
In “Nineteen Minutes” there are secrets that have yet to be revealed and it’s getting a little annoying. Please Ms. Picoult, unravel some of these secrets so the story moves a little faster!!! SOON!! (Readers of this blog, pelase don’t leave any spoilers in the comment section.) I am still enjoying the book but I am finding myself getting a little depressed when I imagine the students and faculty of Columbine HS and Virginia Tech living these situations. To keep the book in the fiction realm, I am imagining the characters resembling some of the actors in the tv shows “Heroes” and “Friday Night Lights“. I am looking forward to finding something a little lighter to read when I’m done with this book though. Any suggestions?
