Otherwise, i haven't been up to much. I've been rereading Neal Stephenson's wonderful Cryptonomicon in preparation for reading Quicksilver. I'm 680 pages into it, which is 60%. Go me. Daily, i've been pummeling various people in various versions of Settlers of Catan, but that's not exactly noteworthy or even news. punkalicia expressed interest in learning how to play. If anyone else is interested, i'm all for schooling people in the wonderment that is Catan.
So you can see why i haven't written. I have nothing to say. Allow me to retire now to plan my celebrations for tomorrow's holiday.
