+ Had a great time in Maui.
+ got some decent pictures (will be posting them for the next few days).
- didn't get as many good pictures as I wanted...
+ was too busy enjoying myself.
- back in the snow of Boston.
- forgot my digital musical device today.
+ read really good book last night / this morning.
+ read good book on way to Maui.
"As She Climbed Across the Table," by Jonathan Lethem.
Great book, fairly quick read. I'm really liking most of Lethem's writing.
"The Anubis Gates," by Tim Powers.
People kept telling me to pick up some Tim Powers, and I'm glad I finally did. Anubis Gates is a really good book, which takes ye olde time-traveling thing but does it really well. Good writing, solid plot, leaves you wanting more.
Welcome back, Ry! =D
snow is quite a kicker to the system after maui, isn't it?
man, tell me about it.
it's t3h sux0r.
Luckily it's not biting cold out, just plain cold.

i will be in boston this weekend and monday night, too and plan to see you and meg so get ready!
I look forward to finally meeting the Amy!
I love the 2 Lethem books I've read: Motherless Brooklyn and Fortress of Solitude. Read 'em?
Those are the two I've heard aren't as good as the rest. heh. I have a copy of fortress, but haven't cracked it yet.
What?! Lies! Sagacious lies! You've been lied to, my friend.
Motherless Brooklyn is fantastic, and my personal favorite. Fortress of Solitude is probably better written in terms of contemporary literature.
have you read all his other stuff then?
