What's the buzz, tell me what's a-happenin'

So here's what I read every morning.

I read the parts that interest me from The Cincinnati Enquirer -- front section, editorial page, comics.

Then I fire up the old computer. My default page is Google News, and I skim the headlines to see if there's anything interesting there.

I read my e-mail, and look at LJ responses.

Then I read my favorite web comics: PVP, Day by Day, Kevin and Kell, Tumbleweeds (weekly), Tales of the Questor, Under the Lemon Tree.

Then I read a little commentary: Right Wing News, Little Green Footballs, occasionally The Weekly Standard online.

Finally, I go to The Daily Mustard and read my Friends page. If I've got something to say, then I'll post.

I continue to read throughout the day/week: mail; fiction; work stuff; Scripture. I average about a book a week. I watch a little TV (mostly Fox News, Sci Fi, or History Channel). I almost always check my e-mail & LJ before bed.
