Favorite Fridays!

The Kite Runner! Khaled Hosseini give us an unique look at Afghanistan. One that most people…including myself at times…don't or won't see in a post 911 world. You really see the tragedy of the Afghani people. The Taliban isn't Afghanistan any more than the Nazis are German or the KKK is American. They aren't what we want to be know as, remembered for, or even associated with. It's a story about betrayal and redemption , it shows how the decisions we make in our childhood affect us even in adulthood. It is a touching, wonderful, truly lovely read!

About A Boy! I love this film! It is sarcastic, British, wonderful. It's all about Will…Hugh Grant…who is self centered, immature man who has never had to grow up and be responsible and Marcus who is strange, being raised by his hippie suicidal mother and how these two very different people become friends…no more than friends family.



Meiko! This week I've really been into Meiko's Boys with Girlfriends. But I also really like her Piano song!

PH! Melanie had her second baby boy on 26 Aug 2009 at 11:54 PM! He was 7 lbs. 10 oz 21 inches! He is really cute and sweet. He doesn't look like PB did when he was born but cute! Being an Aunt is awesome!
