The Sunday Rundown

I know I haven't done one of these in a while so here goes.

Reading:

I recently picked up George RR Martin's "Dreamsongs Volume I & II" and "The Bibliphile's Dictionary" for $12. Did you know that the term 'bohunk' is a disparaging term for a Hungarian or a person from East Central Europe. Who knew?

Watching:

I'm always happy when September rolls around because it means my shows start up again. One of these shows includes "How I Met Your Mother". NPH is by far one of my favourite tv personalities. He's such a professional and oh so hilarious. Take this clip about Barney Stinson learning how to drive.



Listening To:

This imaginative piece comes from Jarbas Agnelli who saw birds sitting on a wire and thought they looked like musical notes. From this inspiration he decided to create a song. Enjoy!

Those birds DO look like musical notes. What a beautiful idea! Have fun with your shows (and fall)!

Hmm, I always heard bohunk in reference to Ukrainians (my background) -- name-calling for all Eastern European I guess!

And that music piece is amazing. Wow. Love it; thanks for sharing!

(I think word verification is also prejudiced: the word is Dumbody!)
