Me and this giraffe? We had an understanding.
Speaking of Sorta Awesome, we've launched a LISTENER SURVEY to find out who our listeners are and how we can make the show even more awesome. If you're a Sorta Awesome listener (even just an occasional one!), we'd love it if you could take 5 quick minutes and fill this out.
If you're not a Sorta Awesome listener, but really like to answer questions, stay tuned. I'm going to do an HH reader survey in the next few weeks as well.
Jeff's documentary Angry Sky aired on ESPN this week. Don't worry if you missed it, it's also airing on Saturday on ESPN at 1pm/ET, and will probably re-run even again after that. This is a great story, I highly recommend it. There's also a great interview with Mat Hoffman about producing the film.
For your weekend reading pleasure:
- How a book becomes a movie. (This is jam-packed with interesting Hollywood information. And as our family is sort of living this out right now...yeah. Movies can take a long time to make.)
- This will make any classic literature reader laugh. (And speaking of classic literature readers, I swear I haven't dropped out of the Read Great Books literature challenge. July was just tough with our rotating houseguests, and I figured most of us were engrossed in our summer reading anyway. Click here if you want to see what I've been reading lately, and know that I'll be posting the date for the next discussion soon. If you want to get a jump on the reading, our next pick is Their Eyes Were Watching God.)
We have a houseful again this weekend, and I'm already sunburned. Just before I'm hitting publish on this post, I'm heating the grill for burgers, and out the window above my desk I can see the boat pulling my kids on the tube. This is a summer, and it is good.
