Otherwise, well, we are still pillaging our local libraries. Should write up what all I've been reading, in the vain hope of remembering the ones I like. And my left shoulder is ( messed up somehow - details, such as they are, behind a cut for people who Don't Care. )
Wife is home from an academic conference, with another one next month. Fortunately, even with a bum shoulder, I can take care of myself, for values of 'take care of myself' that mean 'play video games and keep the house clean enough that Wife does not despair of me.' Mariposa was ecstatic, because All The Thia Snuggles! Fluff snubbed me, in place of snubbing her actual mother. Wife is okay with this, because it means she doesn't have to spend half a day reassuring Fluff that she was Not Actually Abandoned.
