HP and Goblet of Fire

We saw "Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire" tonight. It is easily the best film so far in the Potter series. The most laughs, scares and drama by far. Those crazy wizards are finally becoming horny teenagers. This is "The Empire Strikes Back" of the series - that is probably the best thing I can say about it.

And a long overdue shout out for Earl. "My Name is Earl" that is. As in the funniest show on TV. Check it out on NBC Tuesday night. Features a fantastic cast of goofballs and is so original and creative I can't believe it's from the creator of one of the lamest sitcoms in history - "Yes, Dear". Last week's show was absolutely hilarious. Don't let Earl go down like the last great new comedy "Arrested development" which has been yanked by Fox for shitty ratings.

AF and Lori take the fieldYesterday the New England Patriots won their second game in a row. This two-game winning streak is the longest of the season. Wow, what a difference a year makes! Last year all the talk was about their 21 game winning streak. We even got to be down on the field before the game. So I can take credit for the win due to my inspiring words to Brady just before security dragged me away. It was all Larry's fault. Check out some pictures.

Great Book

I read a fantastic book this week, A Million Little Pieces. It is a non-fiction account of one addicts' stay in rehab and it is one of the most gut-wrenching, heart-breaking and inspiring things I've ever read. It is actually an Oprah's Book Club recommendation and I bought it after seeing her rave about it. (Yeah, I watch Oprah. You just wish you could work from home and watch her too.)
It is written in a style that pretty much ignores most rules of grammar and punctuation, so it takes a bit of getting used to. But you do quickly get used to it and I laughed and cried pretty much every time I read it. This is such a powerful book I had to read it in small bits as opposed to just flying through it. The story isn't for the feint of heart, but you certainly don't need to be an addict to get something out of it either. I highly recommend it.

National Novel Writing Month

November is National Novel Writing Month - NaNoWriMo for short - where thousands of people around the world try to write 50,000 words by the end of the month. I'm officially declaring my intention to play along. I've got an idea and a title, but since I'm starting a day late I don't have time to say anything else. For more info visit
