Boss Coffee

Other synthetic delusions of the electric head

In the end, I spent the evening ripping CDs, composing a playlist, and re-reading Grant Comes East. I need to finish unpacking some of these boxes, since I'm pretty sure a couple of my missing CDs are wedged in there somewhere...anyway, no progress in the kitchen tonight. Maybe tomorrow.

One of my other Christmas presents was The Best Alternate History Stories of the 20th Century, edited by Harry Turtledove and martin Greenberg. It's a fairly decent collection, though some of the stories seem to be more time-travel than straight alternate history (Sterling & Shiner's "Mozart in Mirrorshades") and Allen Steele's "The Death of Captain Future" is straight-up hard SF. Still, overall it's a decent collection, with Larry Niven's classic "All The Myriad Ways" and Ward Moore's "Bring The Jubilee".

HALO

Can't sleep, Stuart's cavalry will eat me

Plans to get up early and do a buttload of baking before the Board meeting fell afoul of Never Call Retreat, which I got into last night (er, well, early this morning) after finishing Grant Comes East. It kept me up until about 0230, which meant I slept in until 1100 this morning after whacking the snooze button on the alarm a couple of times.

I was going to do a massive year in review post, but there's really no time for that since I'm being hired to play taxi for P, and I want some solid food in my stomach before I go off to the work (and party) of the day.
