The Proust is in the Pudding. I mean, my handback.

Conversation last night while walking on the Embankment
shadowdaddy: It's the dock for the Tate Boat!
webcowgirl: I didn't even know it was sick!

I started The Guermantes Way today, the Mark Treharne translation that's part of the new Penguin edition of Remembrance of Things Past (called In Search of Lost Time for this edition, we'll see if I warm up to this admittedly more accurate translation). This book has a mere 597 pages, so it should be easier to make progress on it, or at least to not be discouraged from carrying it in my bag. (I'm also back on The Battle of Evernight, which I'll probably have done by Tuesday.)

Post on looking for people for theater stuff coming soon ... but a lot of work today! If you've got some free time, I'd love to have you see if you think my daemon (currently a raccoon) actually matches my personality ...
