Amy’s Night Of The Living Blog

I knew it would happen – it was just a matter of time.  Amy’s blog finally ate her brain.  It’s 4:30pm and she’s in her bathrobe continuing to work on her blog.  Amy’s a writer and it’s fun to watch her get completely absorbed by something.

In particular, I love it when she jumps up and down and rants at stuff.  She usually does this in close proximity to something she’s reading, especially the NY Times.  Today she wrote about a quote from Evelyn Husband and an editorial from Salman Rushdie.  And yes – she was jumping up and down and screaming rude things when she told me about it – she moderated herself for her blog.

In addition to being willing to talk about politics and current events (something I rarely express an opinion on other than to hand out copied of Atlas Shrugged to people), she’s a much better photographer than me.  If you want to get a feel for our place in Homer, check out her Alaska 2005 pictures.  Moose or gulls anyone?


P.S. If you are too lazy to read Atlas Shrugged, try the Atlas Shrugged (Cliffs Notes).  Yo – Amy! – time to go for a run on the Homer Spit.

  • Ok, another Atlas Shrugged reference. You’ll be happy to hear that the used seller I bought it from via Amazon delivered it a few days ago. Holy shit – it’s thick! I’ll get to it in the next 30 days. I’m looking forward to reading and then reviewing it. I will put aside my serious reservations with Ayn Rand the person (a nutjob) and evaluate her philosophy on life.

    Oh – and even if you don’t like talking about politics, you can still learn a lot just from listening (and therefore good reason to start off a conversation). One can learn a lot, not about politics, but about the thought process of someone; how they separate emotion/reason; how they argue; etc. For some reason I think certain parts of people’s colors come out during political conversations.

  • Speaking of Atlas Shrugged, have you seen the “Taggart Transcontinental – Producers not Looters” t-shirts? (link) I have no financial relationship with those folks but I did buy a t-shirt. Alas, no one I’ve worn it around yet has gotten the reference. But it’s about as much of a political t-shirt as I’m going to wear.
