Home sick, and killing time. I’m half way through reading Scott’s Blue Noon, and enjoying it immensely. Nothing, however, could prevent me setting it aside momentarily to jump into Terry Pratchett’s Thud!, which showed up mid-morning. Spent some time watching Clint Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby, which was excellent, and discovered that ripping music from cd onto the computer is weirdly addictive. I’ve ripped about 5 gig today, and can’t seem to stop. I should be well and truly ready for the ipod when I actually get it. Back to work tomorrow, but don’t want to go. Maybe a half day. Cough, splutter!
