Words Vs. Pictures

As I'll be here for six months, I brought quite a few books with me. If I don't finish all of them, I'll blame it on my current addiction to Parks and Recreation, which I've been watching on Hulu (which I can't access in Italy, but for some reason, it flies here in Qatar). I know it's similar to The Office, which I like, but I feel like I didn't really get in on the ground floor. Perhaps, one day, I'll start renting it on Netflix and make my way through the whole series. Until then, I'll stick with P&R, most of which I can currently watch online.
As for the books, here's what I brought:

The Dart League King by Keith Lee Morris
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
The Insanity Defense by Woody Allen
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
Rabbit, Run by John Updike
Zeitoun by Dave Eggers
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
The Song Is You by Arthur Phillips

Glad to hear that you are safe and sound in Qatar. I was worried that you haven't responded to my last e-mail, when I discovered that it was still sitting in my Outbox--STUPID OUTLOOK!
Anyway, I've hacked my work's firewall to read your Blog, so I can stay up to speed with things now.
I'll be sending you some good stuff at the end of the month--so keep an eye out for it!
Hope all is well!
