Lunches


Wanted to start the new year out with something good for lunch the next couple of days. Lentil and spinach soup with onions, carrots, and garlic. Yum!

New Year?

I have been really bad posting here or on Tumblr. I just got used to using twitter. Which I really like except sometimes I do want to write something longer than 140 characters. My question is then do I post here or Tumblr? Both? Which site would be more likely for people to read it? I am not sure...

Catch up--Bitch Planet

I finished this on January 2. I have heard so much about it I had to give it a try. Wow it gets right up in your face to make its points. But it has a right to and I have no problem with that. I liked the art work, I liked the attitude, and I will check out the next volume when it gets collected. 4 out of 5 stars.

2016 Reading Goals

As usual I am late sitting down and writing this. January is almost half over already. At least I have been been reading this month. I thought about trying one of the many reading challenges I have seen on the internet. Or just coming up with my own challenge. In the end I decided to just do it like I always do and read what I like or sounds interesting. I will keep an eye on what I read and try to mix things up, but not worry too much about if I am hitting all the genres, etc.. I am putting a number on my Goodreads page for a goal. I am shooting for 100 books this year. I usually split my goal and do so many for books and so many for graphic novels. This time I figured I would combine them into one total. I don't really care how it ends up. I figure it will be at least 50 books and then the rest as graphic novels. The plan is to then blog about how things are going. I know I am not good about blogging so we will see how well that works out. I have read 6 things so far which I will try to write up in a different post or posts. Happy Reading!

Boys of Summer...

Or should I say Spring and Summer? It is baseball time again. My time of year. I am not sure when or why it started, but baseball has always been my favorite sport. Even today with both the NFL and NBA probably passing it in popularity with the younger generation I still would rather watch baseball.

One of the big criticisms of baseball is how long the games are and how slow they can be. I do not have a problem with either thing. I like the idea of a game with no clock. Everyone is always in a hurry and wants their life in short bursts before moving on to the next activity. Baseball refuses to play that game. Each team gets three outs an inning and can take as long as they can before moving to the next one. More of life should be like that.

I have never been a cold weather fan. Give me the warm weather all the time. Baseball fits in perfectly here. I love the idea of sitting outside on a warm day with a cold beer and watching or listening to a game. You will never catch me freezing outside at a football game. I never have and I never will. I will admit to some fond memories of playing football in the cold weather. That is a whole different story.

Sunday is the start of the new MLB season. The time when we all are in first place and can dream about this being the year our favorite team finally wins the World Series. My team is the Cleveland Indians. They have two World Series Championships in their history. Both Long before I was born. They have three other appearances in the series which the lost. Two of those were when I was able to watch. I still have not got over the 1997 loss in Game 7. We have a good team this year. We also are in a division with three other good teams all of which can easily win our division. We have a long way to go before we know who will end up on top. For right now we are in first place and the dream of a championship is still a possibility. Maybe this could really be our year...

Comic Catch Up

I seem to read comics in batches. I will go a time without reading any and then will binge read. The problem is I let things I want to read pile up. When I do feel like reading I have trouble deciding where to dig in and end up haphazardly reading random things. Not the best system I know. My question is should I try to be more systematic? Should I make a reading plan to try and work through my backlog?
