I’ll be the first to admit that I can be pretty lazy, but if you need some proof, just take a look at the last time I posted. Over a month, yikes! I haven’t even been writing book reviews.
So what have I been up to? Well, mostly watching hockey. If you aren’t a hockey fan, then you probably don’t understand the awesomeness of the NHL playoffs. Let me tell you though, the playoffs are pretty damn awesome. The quality of hockey is exceptional (except that Pittsburgh/Philly series maybe), the hits are bone-crunching, and the excitement is incessant. And then there’s overtime. Simply amazing.
So with every game being broadcasted this year, I’ve had a bit of a tough time dragging myself away from the TV. Even as a type this, there’s a game on in the background. It just happens that this one isn’t particularly close… Even though I typically reserve this blog for my geekier passions, I felt compelled to express my excitement about the NHL playoffs.
That said, I’ll eventually catch up on my book reviews. I’ve several great novels recently like Good Omens and The Lions of Al-Rassan, and I really need to put some of my thoughts into words.
I also really need to put write a post about Twin Peaks. I finished watching the series on Netflix and there are just so many things that need to be said.
Oh, and The Avengers premieres later this week. I’m really pretty excited about that. I’m a big Joss Whedon fan and I think he’s going to do a great job with the film, although I’m pretty sure I would have seen the movie just to see Scarlett Johansson in that leather getup. :)
