Just a minute... in August

Here is round #2 of the 'Just a minute...' roundup, thanks to August Street. Basically it's my past few weeks in a nutshell.

Reading... "The Mole People: Life in the Tunnels Beneath New York City" by Jennifer Toth. It's about the thousands of homeless people who have setup communities in disused subway tunnels, up to eighteen floors below ground.

Watching... a lot of DVDs at the moment, but highlight by far has been The Dark Knight, which I saw at IMAX last week.

Listening... to Black Mountain's album "In The Future". Particularly good winter music, although not necessarily for everyone.

Eating... mainly mushy foods, like soup and risotto. My boyfriend just had his wisdom teeth out a few days ago and is desperately craving toast, poor thing. Bought "Vegan with a Vengeance" (a recipe book, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz) today too, so will be trying out some of those soon.

Knitting... less than last month. Have moved on to crochet, especially granny squares!

Learning... a bit more about web stuff, like editing websites and using Google analytics. I'm a nerd.

Let us know how yummy the recipes are from 'Vegan...'. Good thinking with the google analytics. I signed up but yet to work out what all the reports mean.

I've been to New York a couple of times and never heard anything about it until my friend mentioned this book. It's a great read, really insightful into their lives.

The analytics stuff has mainly been for other websites I help out with, although it's good for the blog to know what people read the most. I'm not taking it too seriously for the moment anyway.
