Somehow most of what I did yesterday was avoid reading "A Game of Thrones" by George R. R. Martin ... it's not what I'm in the mood for right now, so I keep getting distracted. But I need to re-read it as we've got the fourth book out of the library and I've got to pick that up today and we both need to finish it in 3 weeks (no chance of renewal, it's reserved from now till kingdom come). But, I'm not in the mood for it. Not sure what I am in the mood for - maybe the history book I've had out of the library for ages.
So I played some Civ, I played some Quake, I poked at some logic puzzles, I read my friends' friends page ... and read a little, but not much.
And waited for a parcel, which arrived. But as it's mine & J's christmas presents, I shall wait to witter about ooh-shiny computer speakers till after Christmas.
Today is shopping and present wrapping (before shopping, in case I run out of wrapping paper, not sure how much I have). Oh, and Civ. Read some more about cultural victories ...
