    I meant to throw this out there tonight: Life of Pi is still showing at a *few* locations in town this week including the Mann Highland just next door to Chatterbox. I know we talked about possibly going before. I don't know if it is still going to be around next weekend, but if anyone is interested in still seeing it this week, I'd be willing to try to work out for someone to watch Lyd.

      I've got the go ahead for Thursday night! I heard there might be quite a bit of snow. Do you guys still want to push for it if there is a significant snowfall? I'll set up a meetup!

      Bah! When has snow stopped this meetup? I'll be there.

    I would be up for it. My schedule is locked tonight and Tuesday, but the rest of this week is free. And yeah, the first few episodes of Dr. Who never impressed me much. But soldier on, because the show gets really, really good.

    No matter what we thought of this book, I do feel a sense of accomplishment with this one. I'm so glad to finally have this book off my list!!!

    Soooo...I just watched the 1st episode of Dr. Who on Netflix. I can't tell you if I liked it or not because it was a total remake of one of a total of three old Twilight Zone episodes I've ever watched in my life. So now I think my opinion is a bit tainted. I'll give it another go with the hopes of no more TZONE remakes! (And no, I have no idea why TZ bugs me so much. They just always make me want to turn the channel.)

    Oddly enough, for starting off really disliking this book, I have to rate it as a "Buy it". Mostly because I don't believe it should be burnt. Enough people did that in the late 30's when it was first printed. It did a good job showing a slice of bohemian life in 1930's Paris and I can't fault the book for it appearing so ugly to me. My mind wandered quite often, but mostly when the author would ramble on and on about something that didn't move the narrative forward. Once again, not the fault of the book, more the cause of my tv mind.

      I agree...I didn't like it, but I'm going to give the movie a shot. I think that might help put the events into context a bit better for me. I was really struggling with the timeline. Even though I mentally wanted to burn it while reading, after all is said & done, the fact that I'm still slightly curious about what the heck he does in Capricorn makes me say it can't be "BURN IT" bad.

    I'll be there. I'm still waiting for Kris to get home. As soon as he get back I'll be on my way.

    Almost done. This book is a chore to read but should make for great conversation. I am tempted to find the movie to see how it presents the subject matter.

      There's a movie??? Oh, dear...How? Wow. Yup, I can't go there.

    Well, I just finished. Let's just say I'm dying to talk about it to see how my thoughts line up with everyone else's. I broke down & bought the CD set so if anyone is struggling to make it to the end feel free to borrow it to make it go a bit quicker. Can't wait to see everyone!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
