Busy as yesterday was, I still managed to finish a book. This is the new reprint of the third book of the Prohaska series by John Biggins, called Tomorrow the World: In Which Cadet Otto Prohaska Carries the Habsburg Empire's Civilizing Mission to the Entirely Unreceptive Peoples of Africa and Oceania. Once again, it's a good read about the ficitionalized naval experiences of an officer in the Austrio-Hungarian Fleet at the turn of the Twentieth Century.

In the evening, we got out of the house and took in the film Stardust, which was cute/sweet and very much a fairy tale, done up rather nicely. It might not be worth the $ to see in a theater, but it'll be well-worth renting when it's out on DVD.
