The Scarlet Pimpernel

I liked this one much more than i thought i might. The Scarlet Pimpernel, by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, is about an Englishman who risks his life during the French Revolution to smuggle aristocrats out of France. He has a secret identity as a rich, dumb, idle English lord, rather like Batman. Although because i am such a comics fan i knew immediately who the Pimpernel was, i still enjoyed the adventure.

I have realized i am probably NOT going to finish my Armchair Traveler Challenge, unless i pick some other books or suddenly feel like reading On the Road. I have had it from the library for about 6 weeks and just can't get into it. i am going to try the Forster this week so we'll see where it goes.

In other news, i went with BF to the Titans' game today. His first pro football game. I went a few years ago with some friends to see Pittsburgh and Jerome Bettis beat up on us. Today i got to see some great defense for 3 and a half quarters then LT break out. So i am 0 for 2 of the Titans' games i've gone too.
