OK, we're back finally. Man is there a lot to catch up on. Have lots of nice presents to put away, have to update here, have some work to do, and not least of all, have to read all of your silly blogs that I missed last week. This was the fisrt time I was thankful that Joel hadn't updated his in a while. One less thing for me to read. Speaking of reading, got a good ways into The Count of Monte Cristo on my trip. Not deep, but a great adventure story. Also finished An Instance of the Fingerpost which is one of the most unusual mystery novels I've ever read. Four different narrators tell their recollection of the events with an actually suprising ending.
