Jenn Read Fifty Books...

...and counting. She finished her 2007 News Resolution a little over two months ahead of schedule. Typical. As for me? I've got two books that I'm sure to finish before the end of the year, which will bring my own lame total up to twelve.

My Mind on Sports

I've been venting my sports thoughts over at a BLOG I started on Sporting News earlier this year. And thank goodness too, since the Red Sox are in the World Series, the Patriots look great this season, the Celtics picked up Kevin Garnett, and the Bruins look pretty lively. But you can't also forget the New England Revolution, the local college teams (Boston College, Boston University, and sometimes Harvard can break into the national sports consciousness), golf, tennis, the Olympics (summer and winter), and everything in between. And if you scroll down a little bit, there on the left is a nifty ticker so you can see what's in my sporting mind. Go Boston!

Since 2005, I have been traveling for work. Over the past few weeks, I discovered FlightMemory, and it's a little delight. I've learned that my smallest flight was between Minneapolis and Eau Claire, Wisconsin (85 miles). I've learned that I've flown almost 45,000 miles over eight different airlines. I've also been reminded that I took one "international flight" to Toronto. I wish I could map my travel over time, because it's increased over the past year, much to my immediate household's dismay. Next week offers more travel; check the map next week to see where!
