reading to look forward to

I finished my Lupin book the last night, and it was back to "La Vie, Mode D'emploi" for the bus ride to work.

But the book group Sara and I go to is reading "House of Leaves" for next time, and it looks very long and complicated. So I picked up a copy at Dawn Treader and plan to get a serious start on that on the train to DC tommorow.

The "train" is actually a bus that leaves Ann Arbor at 8pm to meet the train in Toledo at 10:45. Given Amtrak's record, that's likely to be closer to midnight. It'll be interesting to see how that works.

Anyway, with lots of reading to look forward to, life is good.

band idea #1023

Listening to the stirring BBC News Hour theme this morning, I realized that someone needs to start a band devoted entirely to covers of the theme music for news shows. It could become the first band with a full-time typewriter player.

hydrogen, lupin, illusion

Saturday night I played with hydrogen a bit. It's fun for a while, but no matter what you do with it seems to sound too much like a drum machine....

Sunday I mostly sat around and read the Arsène Lupin book I started last week. It's kind of preposperous at times, but mostly fun.

Sunday night I watched Renoir's "La Grande Illusion", which I expected to be boring for some reason, but I ended up liking a lot.

My folks finally got their DSL up and working last week. They only have the one laptop hooked up to it right now, though. I'm visiting next weekend and figure I'll spend some of the time trying to get their network set up.

should I move my blog to drupal?

I've been keeping a blog of sorts by hand for a while now. But I'm going to try out Drupal for a while just to figure out whether I like it better.
