Where the hell did that week go? I try to keep this pitiful blog updated on a regular (if not frequent) basis, but that last week just flew by and I think I pretty much stood still.

As ever, I’m behind with just about everything.

I have a huge To Read pile that seems to be growing like some sort of nasty rash. I’ve read an awful lot of junk recently and want to get back to some good stuff, some stuff I actually enjoy and look forward to reading. Recommendations welcome, by the way – I’m pretty eclectic.

I don’t watch much TV, but my To Watch pile is increasing and I’m behind on that too. I’ve only just caught up with the recent season of Lost - fantastic, as ever and I really must make an effort to keep up to date with the final season as it happens. The last episode was great and left me desperate for more. Still didn’t top the end of season 3 though – We have to go back to the island, Kate… classic moment.

Yesterday, I finished the first season of Dexter – loved it, and will probably add the books to my To Read pile.

I still have most of The Sopranos to watch, as well as Band of Brothers, two seasons of Dexter, a Twilight Zone box-set and the first season of Night Gallery. Oh, and countless films too.

See, I’m not exactly up to the minute.

My To Listen pile (OK, that’s not actually a pile as such, more a digital mass) is always increasing, and I’m lagging way behind.

Did I mention my writing? Way, way, way behind on that. Lots to write, lots to draft, lots to edit, to polish, submit, cry over when rejected, submit again.

I just need the world to stop for a while and let me catch up. That’s not a lot to ask for, now is it?

No it is not. I'm in the same boat. In fact, I think you're better off than me. Oh well . . . .

Aaron Polson said...

You want the world stopped? Why didn't you say so?

Of course, there's the whole "shooting off our orbit into the sun" thing, but who cares, right?

Darn it, I thought your blog post was going to have some tips for me.

Rebecca – Well, at least I know I’m not alone now.

Aaron – Why let science get in the way? Impending disaster is a small price to pay.

Cate – You need to check out my other blog: Top Tips from a Tip-Top Top Tipper.

Heh, I could have written this post! A tbr pile of 50+ books and loads of music albums I've yet to listen to... How does this happen? One minute you're on top of things and then-- BLAM! --you need an extra year to get level.

Mike – It’s a case of constantly playing catch-up and right now, I’m not very good at it. Too much to fit into too little time.
