The plan currently is that I'll be going to South Africa in 2010 for the World Cup, so that will fulfill a lifelong desire. It will be hard keeping my eyes off all the international lovelies in the stands, though.
I just finished Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Very quick read for as long as it was but that may be cause it kept my interest so well. Next in the large stack that I haven't had time to read is Pagan Babies by Elmore Leonard.
