We spent several hours this morning and early afternoon watching the rest of season 3 of Downton Abbey while the tantalizing smells of a brisket cooking drove us mildly insane. The brisket just came out of the oven, but the potatoes aren’t ready (John’s in charge of those). I’m SO hungry. I will attempt to distract myself with the best science fiction and fantasy short stories from 2007 and our ongoing CD-ripping project. Wish me luck.
