What with all my microblogging... well, anyway.

H is in Boston visiting her sister for the weekend, so I've been left to my own devices. Which seem to consist of many naps, baths, and lots of reading. I finished The Iron Dragon's Daughter, by Michael Swanwick. Nothing I'd recommend to anyone. Maybe to people who enjoy Laurrel K. Hamilton and are looking at a poor gateway to better fiction. Started the sequel, The Dragons of Babel, which is much, much better.

Beyond that, I've done little. The XBOX 360 is still broken (bloody Microsoft) and I haven't had the mental power to get over to Gamestop to get it replaced yet. I should do that. H is no doubt missing rocking out, and I'm sort of interested in Dead Space after hearing rjbs and a few other guys on IRC talk about it for a couple weeks now.

Tonight I apparently missed out on Social Activities, thanks to napping and headphone usage. Phone being on mute probably didn't help much.

I made some edamame to snack on earlier (yum!) but should probably find something more akin to an actual meal. meh.
