I started letting my beard grow after thanksgiving. It’s been 2 months, and I decided that this Saturday, Ground Hog’s Day, would be a time to make a decision on it. So, I am looking for opinions:

One year ago today the “thing” in my head was confirmed (I heard about the possibility on the 11th due to the sinus CT, but it took the full head CT to really prove and confirm it). Well that’s the past, and I am glad. Now to figure out what to do today to celebrate!

By my book list, I read 57 books in 2007. Here are some stand out entries to my list (which is viewable online in it’s entirety. If you don’t know where to go, send me a message).
- Best “New Fiction” (where new is defined in the past 18 months or so): Blindsight Peter Watts – I think this should have won the Hugo. It’s different, and cool, and good.
- Best “Old”: Beowulf – A New Verse Translation Seamus Heaney – a classic tale, need I say more?
- Best reread: A Wrinle in Time Madeline L’Engle – this book almost had me in tears, as I sat reading it in park in Tsukiji, Tokyo. It’s so lovely, and I am very sad that L’Engle passed away last year.
- Best Nonfiction: The Best American Science Writing 2006 Edited by Atul Gawande – I read two of this sort of collections in 2007. They were both good, but the Redwood essay in this one pushed it over the top, for the entire year
