...it's my first third-ly update, four months = one third of the year!!! Bwahahaha!!!
Still, allow me to present to you January, which will be the end of it until May!!!! YAY!!!
Completed_9 tasks for a Grand Total of 42/ 101

BOOKS:
11 & 12_The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov which I've counted as 2 since it is a trilogy, just three books in what is an apparently a 152 book series :D Actually there are a couple of prequels and a couple of more sequels, all of which I plan on reading as I enjoyed the FT sooooo much.

MOVIES: This category is finis_wheeew. Again, I had seen all of these except Gone With the Wind, which I enjoyed more than I thought I would. David and I watched a couple together, The Wild Bunch and Lawrence of Arabia, Lauren and I saw Singin' in the Rain and we all saw It's a Wonderful Life in the theater which was very cool. Every one was more than worth seeing again. I enjoyed doing this!!

74_Update Lauren’s Art Journal
I'd been very good about maintaining the bits and pieces of Lauren's art, everthing from her first human, face, eyes, nose & mouth all in the proper place, before she was two, to the workbooks she and I did together before she started school, to more complex work done through Art Vista at school, putting everything in an album, one of those large Hallmark-y kind, but then, I filled the album and work started being put into a large manilla envelope instead, but now, with the addition of a second album, all is properly displayed and while it was fun going through all her owrk, it was also rather dipressing. We all grow older.

Done is done.

I love your list of movies. I wish I had more time to watch some of those films.

Just plan on one a week and then suddenly, you're done. Pretty easy especially if you have Netflix, several of them are streaming. So cool.

I only read the the original Foundation trilogy. I talk about Hari Seldon to this day.

I know, Seldon sticks with you. Later this year, I'm planning on take up the saga again, I have to read Paradiso and Crime and Punishment first, they're on the list...le sigh.

Let me know how you like Crime and Punishment.

I will, it's up next. I tried once before, but failed, to read it. The translation I have now was recommended by a highschool junior friend. I promised him I'd try so, we'll see :D

Good luck this time around!

It is done and done and I did like it even if the main character, Raskolnikov, is so incredibly frustrating and basically annoying and the reason I stopped reading in the first place because you are inside his head almost always. Not always but almost.

Now...Paradiso.

Good for you and yay Paradiso!

I know, right? I hope yay! for Pardiso, all that religion is kind of bringing me down. Inferno was definitely more fun :D

nice to see you around.

Congratulations on your progress over the four months - I've just read all of your updates - you've done an amazing amount. I hope the next 'third' goes as well for you. x

thank you, sweetie, it has been a pretty successful four months, although I did take down the easier stuff first so, we'll just have to see how well I do in the next four.

Brilliant movie list... I've actually seen them all.

That's why they are on at least someone's Top 100, I think the New York Times but I can't really remember. You have me one better, very cool that you seen them all.
