Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Finished another library book a little while ago, The River of Lost Footsteps: Histories of Burma by Thant Myint-U, the grandson of U Thant, the former Secretary-General of the United Nations. He writes well about Burma's past, scattering in it his own family's history. It adds a distinct flavor that other historical tracts often don't have. He comes to an interesting conclusion about the Free World's sanctions on the military regime now in charge of the country. Worth reading.

First of all, L'Shana Tova to all of our Jewish friends. We spent last night and this morning at services relating to the holiday, and forestcats chanted a portion of the Torah reading. She also prepared fresh-baked pita all morning, and brought home-made hummus as well. Oh, yum...I'm still bulging at the waistline.

Last night, when we got home from services, we had received the first disc of season two of The Big Bang Theory, and we watched half the disc at a sitting. I wasn't just amused by this show, I really was LOL. Cool.
