Ms P

Lisa, I'm becoming addicted to your blog too, LOL.

About the Brits: My N° 1 son (aka Robin) left for university in England in October, and then cried and begged to be brought home. I had to call the school to ask them to keep an eye on him because I was terrified for him, the former Big Man on his International High School Campus with the Dreadlocks ... I learned something. I learned that the people from any country that lived as ex-pats, be it in the US in the case of your DH and your in-laws, or in France, in the case of my SO and all our Brit friends here that my son knew when he elected to study in England rather than the US or France ... To make a long story short, all those British ex-pats weren't really typical Brits either, since they were living abroad.

In other words, we all live in a sort of British no-man's land.

Maybe that's why your in-laws have finally gottten huggy, LOL. You're right, we are the world.

Hope this makes sense!

Thanks for helping me out tonight.

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
