Killing time

It's another lazy Sunday around here. We saw "A Serious Man" last night, which was an excellent movie, but it meant we were out pretty late, so I'm all sleepy today. We're still mostly just killing time. Which makes for lots of knitting, and video games (we've moved on from Lego Star Wars to Lego Indiana Jones), and jigsaw puzzles, and of course reading.

I'm still reading Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates and Happy Alchemy, and they're still both really good. The Tom Robbins is just so funny and strange, and Switters is a fabulous character. I get the feeling it's about to get really good, too. I can feel a big plot movement coming on. And Happy Alchemy is fascinating. He's postulating on all this really interesting stuff about Greek culture and society, and how we really can't understand it from our cultural perspective, because there are such enormous differences in our cultures, even though our "democratic" society is somewhat based on theirs. It makes for great reading.

And that's about all I have to report today. Not much, but it's still pretty nice for a lazy Sunday.
