I have still been up to my neck in "real work". I hope it will slowdown in the next month or so. When I do get a few minutes - I am trying to read, and maybe catch up on TV a little.
I'm carving out enough time to finish Neal Stephenson's "Baroque Cycle." I find these books to be amazing. Exciting, intellectually challenging, but very rewarding. I feel like I've actually visited the late 17th and early 18th century. And Neal's themes about science, technology, commerce, etc. are quite intriguing.
As I side note, I TiVo'd the whole "Firefly" series, which I'd like to watch before I go see "Serenity". I haven't heard anything but good things about the movie.
