I consider myself to be a fairly intelligent person. I read conservative and liberal news websites for fun. I try to stay abreast of current events. And when I go to the library I try to choose at least one book from each of four categories:
Non-fiction (generally about a social or political issue)
Self-improvement (marriage, parenting, etc.)
These are the last five books I've read:
Save the Males: Why Men Matter, Why Women Should Care
Spoken From the Heart (The memoirs of Laura Bush)
Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage
Left to Tell: Discovering God Amid the Rwandan Holocaust
Hmmm... Apparently I really enjoy books with two-part titles. (They were all worthwhile reads, by the way).
But seriously, I try to be well-rounded and informed. And I really dislike the fifteen-minutes-of-fame culture that celebrates crude, rude, and edgy. I don't even like the word "fart".
So why is it that every time I come across news articles about the unfortunately-named seventh planet, I can't help but smirk?
Gah! What am I, twelve?
