I am swamped under a load of work, so this is a short little bit.
This is a conversation I just heard:
Russian Man #1: You just want coffee, not food?
Russian Man #2: It is too early for lunch. People eat lunch too early here. What time is it?
Russian Man #1: It is 11!
Russian Man #2: Bah!
Beyond that, I have some blog posts that I am working on in the short term. I am reading Clowes’ Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron for a second time in order to feel better about it before making a post. It’s a difficult book, and the first time I read it I couldn’t make heads or tails of it.
I also have some comments on Jane McGonigal’s Reality is Broken, which I am reading in my spare time. It is about video games and is sometimes good and sometimes horribly misguided.
I’m also almost done with Jeffrey’s Anti-Matter about Michel Houellebecq. It really isn’t the best book; I think the review is mostly going to be about my disappointment with the book.
Anyway, have a good day.
