Last Words on the Roku Digital Video Player
I watched 88 Minutes on my television screen last night via the Netflix Instant Play Queue and our new Roku Player. I give the process and convenience a thumbs up. The only thing that might be a problem for some viewers is that most of the new releases I looked up on the Netflix site were not yet available in streaming format. Doesn't matter to me, as I have lots of older movies in my DVD queue that do have the instant play option.
Good Reads from Colorado Authors
This week I read Mike Befeler's second Paul Jacobson Geezer-Lit Mystery, Living With Your Kids is Murder and Amy Kathleen Ryan's YA novel, Vibes. Loved them both. Note that Amy has a new book coming out in early 2010: Zen and Xander Undone.

Progress or Lack Thereof
A month ago I listed Five Things I Want to Accomplish in the Next 39 Days. I am proud to say I've upheld the writer's tradition and procrastinated to the point I can now be certain I will fail on all five items. I will admit I'm close to finishing the first draft of the suspense novel, but it now looks as though I'll be about 10,000 words short on December 31st. (Shrug) Whatever.
