Reading Steig Larsson. I just finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and have started The Girl Who Played With Fire. Marvelous. I'm not a pop fiction fan, and I think these will hold up, much in the vein of John le Carre.
Air conditioning in this dreadful heat. It's been 90+ F for days and days and days. Thank you Mr. Carrier - you helped civilize the South.
Moe's return from Boy Scout camp. I retrieved him Saturday afternoon, stinky, unwashed, and happy. I made him strip in the laundry room. He was wearing some moccasinc he had made. He was also in possession of a large number of blisters on his feet and ankles, the result of not wearing socks for several days.
The blisters look much better now that he is away from the filth. And he has hugged me over and over again. Moe is a good boy.
This summer's comfy sandals. Lots of room for my toes to wiggle, and kinda cute too!
Reading Dick Cavette's columns in the New York Times. I lurve Dick. I used to love watching his show as a kid. And his columns are sooo wonderful. Mr Cavette is sublimely erudite and urbane without being condescending. And he's damn entertaining too.
Things I am NOT enjoying:
The Damn Heat. Jeez. 'Nuff said.
The fact that my thighs and calfs are covered in dozens of little tiny scratches, courtesy of That Bad Kitten, Vader/Sylvester/Demon Spawn. He is fierce. I have several loaded water pistols stashed around the house to ward off the attacks. Fortunately, said Bad Kitten doesn't seem to be dumb and may be trainable. But he is persistant.
I has an owie. My right wrist has been hurted. I think it is a repetative stress injury related to too much use of computer key boards and mice without proper wrist support. Started bothering me on Friday, after I had spent most of the week deploying all these stupid tablet PCs. I gave up and put the wrist guard on yesterday, had to sleep in it. Ouch. I does not like it.
What are you enjoying - or hating?
