- I caught V for Vendetta over the weekend. See it. Especially if you live in the US. Or Australia. Or England. Or anywhere in the Middle East. Or Ireland. See it. Oh, and Natalie Portman is tiny/gorgeous.
- I also caught a production of Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance. Auspicious start as the guy I met while walking from parking offered me his extra ticket. Then the company director cites Albee as our greatest living playwright. News to me. It was OK. The dialogue was dense and often funny, but nothing much happens. I'm a Philistine, so not in a position to judge, but that works for a good 30 minute sitcom, but at 2.5 hours, it got long for me. You heard me. Too long.
- I'm currently reading The Line of Beauty. I know, I know, it's SO 2004, but it's GORGEOUS and I'm savoring it. So much goodness on every page. And if some of that goodness includes, within the first 50 pages, some covert man sex in a private park in London, well, so be it.
- I'm now three pounds from the goal weight I stated three weeks ago, so naturally I was trying on swimwear this morning. Sure, my vacation entails multi-layered and forgiving ski clothes, but in-TEG-ral to a day on the slopes is the apres-ski hot tubbing, people. I'm almost ready to leave a lasting impression. 2.5 more weeks.
- Are you a sweater guy? Many gays/girls aren't, but despite the colder than normal temps today, I wore a powdery-blue cotton/cashmere v-neck (from the Banana) and it made me happy. Before that, I layered in the running gear and went out for 5.5 miles on the trail. It was beautiful and briskly invogorating and one of those effortless days that sneak up on you, making me feel like a runner again, even though I can't really claim that as my own again yet.

Regrets, I've had a few
Does it seem like I love everything I consume? Well, this won't change that perception much. Witness as Mike hearts 4 out of 5 more things:
