so i've been reading a lot. which, combined with the working and the eating and the sleeping and whatnot, means that i don't have a lot of ammunition for posting. except about books.
and wouldn't you know it, there's this other place where i'm doing that!
so check it out, if you miss the sound of my voice or something.
(by the way - do any of you still have that childish predisposition to pick at bug bites? because apparently, i do. i have five bites on my left arm leftover from vacation that are, at this rate, going end up as hideously garish scars, given the intensity and regularity with which i pick at them. and yet i can't stop! it's embarrassing, actually.)
(oh, and one other thing. the hotness? not nearly as bad today as it was yesterday. yesterday was pretty swampy, but today - at least the 8:00 am hour and the 6:00 pm hour, when i was actually outside - just felt like regular old summer. hot town, sure, but not wheezing like a bus stop, you know?)
