Technical Difficulties

I've been known to go offline when I get frustrated/have nothing nice to say about weddings/live/love/Los Angeles.  This is not one of those times.  This time, it's because my at-home internet is not cooperating AT ALL.

Since I don't/won't blog at work (except for this PSA), posting has been light this week.  Hopefully I'll get it figured out asap and I'll be back with new posts shortly (tomorrow, all going well, dear internet gods?)

And, if not, I will continue to do some low-tech reading tonight instead.  If your internet crashes in the next few days, I can highly recommend The Time Travelers Wife as a gorgeous piece of language and story.  And although I live in Los Angeles, I genuinely had no idea that this book was made into a movie until after I borrowed it from a friend. I prefer books, thankyouverymuch.

Anyhow, hopefully I'll see you back here tomorrow.

    PS. The Time Traveler's Wife the movie was terrible. so much so that i don't think that i could even stomach reading the book no matter how good it is. that's the last time i see the movie before reading the book.

  2. Totally agree with Bowie Bride. The book was ten bazillion times better than the movie. At least I didn't have to pay to see it — airplane movie.

    Sorry to hear about your internet too!

  3. @Bowie Bride - reading the book, I have NO IDEA how they thought it would be good in movie form. It's the language and structure that make it so evocative, not really the strict plot. Give it a try.

  4. Ugh, boo on the internet access. That was me in Asia. It's almost the weekend anyway so sit back and relax and make us jealous with your LA weather tales (hmm next week?) Can't wait for more stories love/life/wedding!

  7. One of my favourite books! Can't believe how off the movie was.....books are always better than the movie versions.

  8. Ooh! If you liked the Time Travelers Wife you will like "Her Fearful Symmetry" by the same author. I just read it...and the ending was crazy!
