I have, sadly or amusingly, finished two books already this year. Sodom and Gomorrah, unfortunately, is not one of them. And, well, I haven't really been much up for reading it in the last week. That said, I'm at page 444, 70 away from the end, and not the least bit closer to getting a hardback copy of the Penguin new translation of The Prisoner and the Fugitive. What, did every library in the world buy a copy before it went out of print, and now no one will let go of theirs? Is a hardback copy of this novel just not an impulse purchase? Me, I need a copy I can carry around for five months or so and paperback just isn't cutting it. I don't want to hear any BS about US copyright law* keeping me from getting one, I just want the freaking book!
Oh yeah, and here's my schedule for the week. Key element: do nothing after work.
Sunday: nap sporadically, fetch things for shadowdaddy, drink hot toddies. Monday: work, come home, see how shadowdaddy is doing. Tuesday: work, come home, let wechsler make dinner for us. Wednesday: work, come home, REALLY hope this cold is on its way out. Maybe see a movie across the street. Thursday: work, come home, pack. Friday: work, panic about trip, possibly go to birthday party. Please let the cold be over. Saturday: er, leave on trip. This will be interesting ...
*It's sold out in England but hasn't even made it to the printers in the US, in case you care, and probably you don't.
