So far, no actual writing -- but it's still better being in the cafe. I've been focused about revising my to-do list and dealing with various small tasks. At home, there would have been much puttering. And it's nice having company for working -- I ran into Aaron, an old friend who apparently comes here to work on programming stuff on his own, and Jennifer just showed up. Happy typing sounds. :-)

My fingers are cramping a bit (out of practice, clearly), so I'm going to take a small break and read some of Monica Ali's Brick Lane. I was reading it while on the plane, and I'm almost done. I'm enjoying it so far, though I'm now curious what all the controversy was about (there was a big flap when this book was published, though I can't remember why). Seems like a fairly standard South Asian-immigrant book, well-written enough, but not really jumping out at me as anything special.

Sigh -- that's how Bodies in Motion could be described too, I suppose, aside from the slightly unusual linked-story structure. Though I suppose there's a fair bit more discussion of varied sexuality in the last major section of the book. I hope there are other elements that differentiate it from the crowd...
