wombat

under the occasional sun

Managed to pry myself out of the apartment ~1530 to go get a cheap sub (and sushi) at Harris Teeter, ejecting a lot of garbage into the dumpster en route. Hit Walmart next for paper products, Borders to cash in a 40% off coupon on a Bill James book, and B&N to cash in another coupon on another book. While there, killed time during rush hour by reading the first half of C.J. Cherryh's Conspirator, the latest novel in her Foreigner series. This appears to be her second novel retooling "The Ransom of Red Chief" as a comedy of manners involving humans and atevi, and as such seems very well done so far.

Made a dinner appointment with RS to talk about rehosting my Geocities website, which Yahoo! will be closing later this year (date/time TBA).

Did some other shopping at MicroCenter and did dinner with P at Moby's; we also got caught up on stuff since I hadn't heard from her in a week. Got home from that after another stop at Harris Teeter for milk. Wasted time online for a while, and now it's time to hit the rack.
