Went to Zodiac tonight for dinner. Yay for super-messy chicken sandwich (for once I didn't order
- dammit, I can't type the word, I type "queue" too much at work.... - BARBECUE, dammit!!!! duck!) Spent a large chunk of the time with a couple of sappy lovebirds at the next table giving each other dental exams with their tongues and groping and whatnot. (If you've never been to Zodiac, well..."at the next table" means they're practically shoulder-to-shoulder with you.)
So these two were really irksome and I was seriously considering addressing them directly. I mean, for serious people, if you want to get it on, go somewhere that's not arm's distance from my dinner table.
In other news, I finished reading Scar Night last night (http://www.alanmcampbell.co.uk/
) I recommend. The first third is kinda slow, but well-written. The rest of it though is quite great. I wait for the sequel this spring.
Now I need to decide what my fiction for the month of February will be...I'll probably try to make another effort to grab one of the books I own but never read.
But before I pick up another piece of fiction, dammit, I am going to finish Walden so I can move onto something else and make some progress on the CTP.
And again unrelated, I found a couple of poems by Keats to Apollo tonight. I will probably post them tomorrow.
