Lately I've become a student of a few things.
of Steve Jobs. I am reading his biography, the 500+ page one (whoa), which is basically the story of the greatest company ever. It's extremely fascinating, and full of words like "diodes" and "bitmapping." Did you know Steve originally wanted to call the Macintosh "the Bicycle"? crazy.
of Cheeseslave's Healthy Whole Grains online class. Totally registered for this. It starts this week. Can't wait!!! (Hurry and register if you want to get the launch discount!) By the way, did you hear that Grant bought me a waffle iron for valentine's day?!
of Mad Hungry. Not typically a fan of cooking shows, I am surprised at how much I like this. Usually I just get embarrassed for the person I'm watching.. it's so unnatural. But Lucinda Scala Quinn is a pretty smooth sailor, and I've actually tried several things that I've learned from her. So, I dvr it for when I'm on the couch nursing Hadley.
of the U.S. Constitution. Grant and I are watching the e-course Constitution 101 offered by Hillsdale College. (hello, Bethany and Elsa!)
of Downton Abbey. Well, I'm more of a fanatic than a student. But maybe I am learning a little lesson on 1920's culture in England :) I hope my sisters are watching this. I hope you all are watching this. I hope you get a little shiver when you hear the theme music play. (I'm in love.)
