...or why books and tv rank higher than sleep

Some nerdiness my fellow "bookies" will understand

So just a minute ago I totally threw my husband off-guard by conferencing him in with Alex the Cox Cable man. See I totally forgot that tonight Pillars of the Earth begins on Starz. Now, Pillars is tied for my favorite book of all time and I've been pretty giddy that they did a miniseries.

Side Note: It goes to show you just how stressed/depressed/out of sorts I have been to forget about this.

Thank goodness my cousin made a comment to me about it or I would have missed it. Unfortunately we don't have Starz. And I'm not authorized on our cable account (never get around to finding the pin #). So that's why I had to conference in my completely confused husband and tell him to repeat after me "I want to order Starz". Then I disconnected him and finished my order. Voila!

So the bright spot on my cruddy week is to pop open a bottle of wine and enjoy Pillars of the Earth tonight with my beagle boys. I might even sample the rum cake I am making for a girl's night tomorrow night.

I too have been totally looking forward to this. Pillars is one of my top 10 fave books of all time! Unfortunately, I don't have my satellite service right now, but my dad is recording it for me so no worries. It will be a few days before I can see it, but I can wait! Glad you will get to watch it too. =O)

I hope you get to see it soon. I have to say it's a lot different than I expected. I'm not sure exactly what I think about it yet.

What do you think so far of Pillars. I have been happy and disappointed at various points. I was talking it up so much to my family, I think they think I am crazy because my husband says it is boring.

The book is not boring at all, but somehow they changed the pacing of the story and made it somewhat boring.
