I started reading The Worm Ouroboros. It's good so far. Any book that starts with the characters reading Njal and then has a fatal "wrastling match" has to be good.
Meeting with the academic yada yada in a little bit. Most of the following paragraphs will be written after my return. Okay, running out the door.
Oh, I finished Dune, that's why I'm reading The Worm Ouroboros. It's a fantasy book written in the 20's, a classic, given to my wife by a friend of ours, the sci-fi and fantasy geek who hasn't read Dune. Eddison's works are apparently the best world-building type thing there was before Tolkien. I'm only 10 pages in. I'm considering getting the man's other books. Cheap used on amazon.
Whoa. Work is letting google chat work again, apparently. I'm not using it, I just see that I can see people...
I need to mix up the music on my Ipod. I feel like Ray Charles, but I don't have any on there. Hrm. It's surprising how much of The Beatles' catalog you never really feel like listening to. Like, Abbey Road, there's no reason to listen to it. Let It Be, though, I'll listen to that all the way through. Sgt. Pepper has been listened to so many times that I don't know whether I ever have to hear it again, but I would gladly do so.
Also thinking of getting Gokhale's back pain book. My back feels a bit better now that I'm picking up heavy things again, but it still has some areas that need work. Wife is the same way. It is highly recommended by Dan John and Nobel laureate J. M. Coetzee, so, well, maybe it's worth a shot. Will discuss with wife. Don't want to be unilaterally spending money at a time like this.
Bored with anatomy: I do have a palmaris longus, just like 84% of caucasians and a higher percentage of other ethnicities.
There was something I thought would be awesome to discuss in a diary the other day, but I've forgotten. I'll remember after I submit, most likely.
Why is Captain Kirk climbing a mountain?
