gozer: I made this! (Default)

Much hilarity in watching the cats express their deep feline disgust about Snowpocalypse Deux! I love it when they shake a little kitty paw, take a step, shake a little kitty paw, take a step, repeat. Even Zack, who resembles an Arctic Fox more than a cat, doesn't like this heavy, wet slop of a snow. Especially when he takes a step and sinks to his chest. The affronted look on his face is priceless.

The week of Dec 8, 1958 had some heavy-hitter books on the bestseller list, the kind of books that are still remembered, loved, and read today (also? Several kick-ass movie adaptations!) Over the years, I've read numbers 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 14.

Here is the most recent New York Times Bestsellers list that the site would give me, from December 2010:

1 THE LOST SYMBOL Dan Brown
2 THE HELP Kathryn Stockett
3 I ALEX CROSS, James Patterson
4 SIZZLE Julie Garwood
5 FIRED UP Jayne Ann Krentz
6 THE HONOR OF SPIES W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV
7 DEEPER THAN THE DEAD Tami Hoag
8 THE LAST SONG Nicholas Sparks
9 ALTAR OF EDEN James Rollins
10 UNDER THE DOME Stephen King
11 ā€œUā€ IS FOR UNDERTOW Sue Grafton
12 PIRATE LATITUDES Michael Crichton
13 FORD COUNTY John Grisham
14 I SNIPER, Stephen Hunter
15 THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE Stieg Larsson

I see several movies in the making from these, but I wonder how many will still be read in 50 years?

STAY HOME, STAY WARM AND HAVE SOME HOT COCOA IF YOU ARE IN DEEP SNOWAGE!
