Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Graphic novels continue:

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century: 2009. I liked the earlier ones better. What can I say?

Then, there was a more dry piece of work, Osprey Weapon #13: The M1 Carbine, a weapon from WWII primarily, though it was used up into the Vietnam War. What brightened this book were the anecdotes that peppered the prose. Not bad.

Finally, a few minutes ago, I finished reading another graphic novel, Get Jiro! written by Anthony Bourdain. Something of a chef's wet dream, crossed with an Akira Kurosawa movie in comic form. Not bad, and the artwork was something to see.

I got home fairly late, last night, though the sun was still up, but that's because the days are so long.

Still, I was home early enough for one good thing.

Standing out in our backyard about ten to nine, we saw the ISS orbit overhead. Awe-inspiring!

I was also blessed with a bowl of jambalaya. What was cool was that the tomatoes and the okra in it were all from our garden; you could really tell in the flavor. Much tastier. You just can't get any fresher ingredients than right out of the ground!

I'll be on call all weekend. Oh, well.
