Today's CD: a Shawn Colvin CD (sorry, can't recall the title and I'm too lazy to pop it out of my computer to check).

Jeff and I went to see THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH last was pretty much what we both expected, so neither of us were disappointed. :-)

Started ANGELA'S ASHES; love it so far. Also was surprised to see that much of the focus so far seems to be on Limerick County in Ireland, near the Shannon river. Jeff and I and some other friends rented the wing of a castle (Limerick Castle) in County Limerick, on the banks of the Shannon River, nearly ten years ago. Gorgeous countryside, friendly people. The Knight of Glin greeted us in his bathrobe our first morning there, which was both odd and reassuring all at the same time. We had much fun rambling through the castle, exploring the rooms and castle grounds. Jeff and I also got engaged during that trip. :-)

Hey, I've incorporated! Inkspot is now "Inkspot Inc." on official documents. Interesting how that whole thing works, really...I had to choose between "Limited", "Ltd.", "Incorporated", and "Inc."; I can't really alternate between them even though they all basically mean the same thing.
