- back in Lancaster. I was longing for my own bed, and it felt great.
Until my neighbors dog started barking. Apparently they are on
vacation, and the dog barked all night, steadily. I finally gave up on
the comfortable bed and slept on the family room couch. The cats didn't
care, I woke up with them draped over me.
The fish tank looks good. Changing from Koi pellets to Goldfish flakes has cleared up the water tremendously.
Book #55 is Dzur,
by Steven Brust. This is a fantasy, and just the latest in a
number of books set in this universe. But it was thin gruel - size-wise
and plot-wise. I feel a bit cheated.
Daylight savings time starts tomorrow...
Friday 2 November
- on the road, back to Lancaster.
In their infinite wisdom CALTRANS decided to close the I-5 South to
I-14 North transition road, at 8 on a Friday evening. It defies
comprehension - this is still a heavy commute hour. Morons. I had to
drive south down the I-5 until I could get off on a side road and come back,
up the I-5 and pass though the stop-and-go I-14 junction. Jeez. About a
half hour added to the commute.

I see a lot of advertisements for the movie adaptation of The Golden Compass.
This is a fantasy trilogy, and TGC was the best of the three books. The
last book ends on a somewhat depressing note, and with a seriously anti-Christian message. I wonder if the studio plans to finesse that, and if so, how?
