I just finished another nonfiction book, this one being The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary, by Simon Winchester. Fascinating, and odd, detailing the background of one of the major contributors to the scholarly arts of English. Worth a look.

While forestcats attended my sister the artist's surprise birthday party (which I thought I couldn't get to in time due to work issues), I sat down with a Netflix disc, and watched the initial show of Oz. I wasn't sufficiently impressed to consider watching any more of it, and I'm fairly certain that it isn't to forestcats' taste. Onward and upward!
