Maybe I should pick up Jacques the Fatalist, too. I think Kundera (who's making the news again) said that and Don Quixote were the two greatest novels. I got my annual bonus today. I already have all the other books I could need.
I should begin work for my exam in May. If I don't make it, I will be ruined. Seriously.
Wow: it's 12:43 and I've pretty much only done work. I worked through lunch, even, but there was a breakfast to celebrate something or other this morning, which cut an hour or so out of the working day. Um, I guess I should have lunch. Yesterday was much the same. I was about to get lunch at 12:45 and the Chief Something or Other Officer called and was all, "Dude, I need some numbers and your coworker wasn't there to field my call." And I was like, uhhh...... And at that moment somebody was all, "We're ordering lunch in," and I said, "Deal!" And got him the numbers.
I love The Odyssey. So much more than The Iliad. I think I was assigned the Odyssey twice in college and The Iliad once. The Mahaabhaarata, though, that's where it's at. Epic literature! Try it! Which makes me more ashamed for not having read Cervantes. It's not really an epic per se, but it has the same spirit. I'm not too ashamed for not having read Ulysses. I tried once and felt silly, because after like 90 pages I felt like the whole sum of my education has been to catch all the clever references in the text and I had just BEEN UNABLE TO TRANSLATE THE SANSKRIT WHICH I SPEAK BUT JOYCE CERTAINLY DID NOT. C'mon! Oh well. I enjoyed it a bit. I just didn't bother to pick it up again.
