Hey, guys. Haven't written in a couple of days, but still not much to say. Just been reading and relaxing and resting. Had a lovely tea at Elissa's yesterday, and some good meals elsewhere. Still wading through e-mail. Really enjoyed the latest de Lint novel, _Trader_ -- if you're a fan of urban fantasy, definitely pick it up. Quintessential de Lint. Recently read a book, _The Bride Wore Red_, author forgotten, which was okay, but a bit skimmy for my tastes, and am currently reading _In a Free State_ by Naipaul, which is definitely not skimmy. Dense and often depressing, but good.
