The Thursday Three Season Opener

Finally, the Thursday Three has returned from summer vacation.

1) What are three new books that you’ve read recently?

Hmmm...can I count my new cookbook as something I'm reading? I just got Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook. It's got some yummy recipes in it.

I'm reading House Thinking: A Room-by-Room Look at How We Live too. It sounded interesting when I heard the author on a recent NPR show and so far I'm enjoying it.

I'm also trying to slog through G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy, which my husband insists I need to read. I think making a nine month pregnant woman read even lightweight philosophy is rather cruel. I'm on page 20 and although Chesterton is witty and has already had some great lines, I'm not sure that the other 80 pages of the book won't kill what little brain I have left.

2) What three new products have you tried lately and what were your experiences?

I can't think of anything too new and different that we've started using in the Adams' household. I guess we're relatively slow adopters around here.

3) What are three new movies or shows or plays or whatever that you have seen lately, or would like to go see soon?

Movies? What are those? I think I've been to about three movies in the theater since my son was born 6 1/2 years ago. Clearly, I don't get out much. I don't even know what's coming out soon. Then again, I suspect my ability to get out is soon to be hampered even more, so it is a good thing I'm not pinning my hopes on getting to see any new releases any time in the near future.


I know what you mean about the movies. It's like planning some sort of major expedition.

I figure whatever we don't see in the theater, Reba will go buy at the store when it's released on video. Which is actually more my style anyway, since we don't have to spend nearly so much money on popcorn.

We do watch movies at home. I put anything that sounds interesting on reserve at the library and eventually it gets to me. I consider it my free version of Netflix, but I can't say it is very steady or predictable.

Netflix is about the only movie supplier at this house, apart from occasional library impulse borrowings (I picked up The Majestic today). Since Paul's in charge of the queue, it's always a surprise to me. I made sure he put Cars on the list, though.

Lyman and I have never been to a movie theater together.
