    I love the espresso colored hair, Annie. I know it will help you in the living big. I think it looks the same as your old color: brown.

    Welcome to Nashville!!!

    1) 1/2 marathon. You’d have to spend your first four months here avoiding people and hitting the streets to run by yourself, which isn’t a good idea when you first move to a new town.So maybe not this year.

    2) LOST marathon. I started watching LOST one year ago, halfway through season three, so I had to do a few marathons over the weekends to watch all of seasons one and two–but then I was caught up and caught in. I love LOST now. We watched the first three episodes of season three tonight, and I’m still amazed at how important these characters are to me. Orhan Pamuk,in his Nobel acceptance speech, said that good authors build characters that matter to us. It’s a good story if what happens to the characters is important to our own storylines. And I feel like the characters in LOST have taught me a lot about myself. When did TV start doing that?

    So that’s it. My two points for the eve.

    See you soon!
