I’m sure I say this every Friday, but I’m really glad the week is over. It went by pretty quickly, but all I wanted all week was time to do what I want to do, without feeling guilty about not being busy at work. That’s true of most weeks. This week, though, I think it means I need a vacation.
Hey, I finished The Android’s Dream yesterday and started Dune. Dune is one of those books I know too much about without ever having read it. So far I like it, but I’m having a hard time not picturing the movie. I don’t think I’ve ever watched the whole thing, but I’ve definitely seen scenes from it. And I keep flashing to scenes from Total Recall. Not sure why. Back to The Android’s Dream. I liked it. Fun. It was kind of a mixture of Douglas Adams strangeness (though not quite as silly) and Bourne Identity-type action. I am definitely going to look for more stuff by John Scalzi. And I need to remember to keep an eye out for Joanne Harris. Books by her. It’d be kind of hard to keep an eye out for her without knowing what she looks like. Big book sale next weekend! Woo! I need to make a list. That’s a fun thing I can do this weekend.
Speaking of books, I started watching Veronica Mars this week (episodes are online) and there was an episode where these two guys were in detention. Their punishment was to organize all the books in the English teacher’s classroom. They were supposed to put them in alphabetical by author and then title, and they thought it was awful. That doesn’t sound like punishment to me. 🙂 I was a little jealous, actually. Although I do still have books to organize. The fiction downstairs is all in alphabetical order, but the nonfiction upstairs is a big ol’ mess. So is that sentence, but that’s okay.
This weekend is all about catching up on sleep, so I’m going to bed.
