I have achieved a revelation.

If I were to read a book a day for the next five years, I would not have read (or re-read) all the books which I possess.

...It's a bloody good thing I'm a fast reader.

Books 2011: 147-150

147-150. Barbara Hambly, The Time of the Dark, The Walls of Air, The Armies of Daylight, and Dragonsbane.

Ebooks. Further commentary should eventually appear at Tor.com, and I'll try to remember to linky to it when it happens. Suffice to say, I like these books very much.

I need to stop living on sugar, caffeine, and meat. It can't be healthy. On the other hand, today in the gym I ran 1.5 miles in 14:30 minutes, no stopping for a breather, and 2 miles in 21:40, which is getting towards where I want to be. (I need to shave another two minutes off my times, which I suppose means more training for running faster, and more training for running longer.)

I also cycled, rowed, and made with the lifting of the weights. And tomorrow, because I need to hit something, I'm going to karate again.

I have learned that Dublin has an Occupy protest of its very own. This makes me happy. Thank you, New York, for helping show the world a place to stand.

I'll head down next week. This weekend I need to crank out another thousand words on the thesis, or my supervisor will make I Am Disappoint face. And right now, my supervisor's goodwill is the only thing I have going for me.

Sleepy now.
