In slightly more amusing news, "Scientists Find Gene That Controls Type of Earwax in People" was a top emailed story in the New York Times. It's good to know people are focusing on the important things in the world.
Running up the ramp to the bus today, I noted that I've become an expert suitcase-lugger. A mere twenty steps to get to the ramp? It's nothing compared to that freaking spiral staircase "of doom" at Bank station! This trip, my bag is amazingly light, though I have, for once, more clothes than I'll need (I even packed a bathrobe, such luxury!). I'm looking forward to a few days out of town, though truly I wish I were going somewhere warm and pleasant with shadowdaddy rather than ducking out on a business trip.
Books: number 2 of the Dresden Cycle (Fool Moon, I sense puns), number 2 of the Richard Morgan's Takeshi Kovacs' series (Broken Angels, purchased at Heathrow because I didn't want to tote around the American trade paperback), and William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom (which I've been working on for about two years now). Somehow I suspect that two of these books will come home read and the third, despite being thinner than the other two, won't.
