SOMETHING SET IN NORWAY

I started reading Jane Austen's Persuasion as yet another means of procrastination. I've never read any Austen before. Already realizing that Pride and Prejudice is in Joss's top five novels he would take to a deserted island, I want to impress a girl I know at school who is kind of obsessed with the nineteenth century author.
Talk about semi-colons.
I also just saw "The Lakehouse," which makes reference to Persuasion quite a bit. I liked the movie a lot for some reason. Maybe its becuase my family has a house on a lake in the middle of nowhere, the lore surrounding it and all the family history inside it giving it a sort of mythical, or magical, countenance. Anyway, since I'm studying to be an English teacher, I figured it was high time to read Austen. Shame on me.
I've also been reading Brian Kitely's The 3 A.M. Epiphany, a book of creative writing exercises and short, writerly advice essays. Lots of fun actually. Nothing on poetry or songwriting though. haha. It's been a while since I've had the top blown off my head. The last time might have been while listening to Amputecture by The Mars Volta, or Lenny Breaux.
The only lit. class I had this semester was History of English language, so I had virtually no reading classes. The coolest part of Hist. of Eng. was learning about Olaf Trygvasson, a semi-obscure Nordic/Viking whose life, actually just a footnote in my text, proved to be quite interesting when I did a little internet research. Not as significant as say, William Wallace, to some one like Mel Gibson. But, I'm no Road Warrior.
