Holiday reading

Ah, memories. Years ago I went to new orleans with some of my closest friends - 8 years ago I believe - and here we are again, on a trip, this time to cedar city. Well four out of 7 are the same - the others got married. Anyway, on that trip I discovered what a nerd my good friend lynn is. He brought along dickens' bleak house. When on holiday don't most people bring something lighter? Well, on this trip I caught dan reading cervantes' don quixote (english translation, though). What's up with them? Lynn's driving but for his spare time he brought lonesome dove - we're in the same book group. He claims he also brought cyrrano de bergerac - to prep himself for the play he's seeing tonight. Nerds all around. Earlier dan passed around past issues of the ensign - I remember the days she brought copies of entertainment weekly. I'm thinking our age might be showing. And for those interested I packed middlemarch and at the last minute grabbed austenland - for something light and fun. I'll get to it as soon as I finish the article on addiction in july's ensign.

I love nerds. I totally would have brought along The Crucible and my Portable Dorothy Parker.
