library gets and other news

Picked up the latest sequel to Ender's Game, Ender in Exile. It's starting strong. Also, an updated version of E.M. Nathanson's classic The Dirty Dozen, which I haven't read since I was stationed in Germany; the new version has some art that wasn't in the original Random House version, and Nathanson did the typesetting on this one himself. Looks nice. Finally, Sewer, Gas, & Electric by Matt Ruff, which seems to be popular with the TV Tropers. This may not necessarily be a good thing, but I guess I'll find out.

Finally touched base with Don Beyer, got the bad news about the bill, and promised to get the Sportage out of hock tomorrow (unlikely) or Friday (more likely) if for no other reason than I'm tired of dealing with the Subaru's foibles and want to listen to my own music again.

Tomorrow I have an appointment downtown at the VA vascular clinic; we'll see what they say about my legs. They've been hurting lately, so it could get interesting. I also need to pick up copies of my chest X-ray results from the Alexandria clinic, and doubtless other tasks will present themselves as the day wears on.
