duck from book icons

(no subject)

another book before year's end:

Today I finished Eats, Shoots and Leaves, which I found amusing, and even helped me with some confusions I've had with punctuation over the years. Thanks mrsmartian for the tome; it's very cool.

forestcats and I sat down to watch a Netflix item that was not intended for deep introspection called Like Mike, a cute little film, heavily wish-fulfillment, about a kid who suddenly (magically) becomes a capable pro basketball player. Silly, very predictable, but nice.

I've watched a few more Crusade episodes, along with a commentary track. Fun, but not quite as good as B5.

forestcats and I had a restful couple of days, except that I wasn't really offwork. The beeper refused to shut up the last two nights, and I start oncall again tomorrow at 0700. Still, it was lovely to be with her. We spent a couple of hours with the dogs at dog park, and I watched brushette interacting with little kids through the fence. We also had a chance to have lunch with Ben and Raquel who we haven't seen in a couple of years; they've moved to Chicago for his work with one of the game software companies. Lots of folks I know seem to be caught up in that field...
