Barely a week into the new year

Wow - today I've finished my first book of 2011. That means that I've bought new books, seen a movie, squeezed in three plays, and bought a book (by Jasper Fforde, a kid's book I bet I'll really enjoy). That means all of the side links for this blog have been updated - I doubt most of you read them, but I've been tracking these three things for about seven years now.

Today I did some planning for my Easter travels, picking up a ticket to Palermo for Tuesday, April 18th. Irritatingly, I think the price doubled over the course of the day. Grr. My plan is to go from there to either Riga or Talinn on either Easter Monday or the Wednesday after. I'm a bit torn; I like Sicily a lot but I kind of think I'll be wanting to move by Monday. Then again, maybe I'll get bored in the Baltics after four days. It's hard to tell.

Meanwhile tonight was a quiet night of Pilates (first time in a month, actually did an exercise perfectly I'd never managed to do before, as if forgetting to think actually helped me do it smoothly), a dosa, and studying for the scuba class this Saturday. The video section is BORING. I think tomorrow I'll watch a few episodes and focus on the book. My guess is that I'm going to really be feeling the Pilates tomorrow.

Do tell on the "Dragonslayer!"
I've been waffling about ordering that book for months now so please let me know what you think when you've read it. -em.

Re: Do tell on the "Dragonslayer!"
It is a sight better than Shades of Grey, that's for sure. Seems to be the same voice as most of his other fiction.

huh,funny you should mention Riga - I'll be there the weekend before easter, accompanying my boss at a conference! looks very interesting but i reckon it's more of a weekend place.
have you been to napoli? that was one of my great cravings in 2010 but didn't manage it :-/ maybe an interesting place and easily accessible from sicily if you feel like visiting another place as well, though you've probably already been.

You're right, I have been to Napoli, went there as part of one of my 10 day trips to Europe when I lived in the states, combined it with a trip to Pompeii, of course. J and I think it's the most purely Italian of any city we've ever stayed in and really awesome.
