Hogmanay, Twilight, and a Bicyclist

I had to work midnight to noon on New Year's Day, so we toasted the Leap Second at 6:00 PM (when it took place) with hard cider and oat cakes, and then I went to bed. At the stroke of midnight, I was at my desk, reading four days worth of e-mail. Responsibility is its own punishment.

I am plowing through "Twilight", and am both impressed and horrified. Meyer has managed to perfectly capture the voice of a precocious, angst-ridden 17 year-old girl suffering from a bad case of hormone poisoning. The voice is so perfect its SCARY. On the other hand, I find the experience of time spent inside the head of such a creature EXHAUSTING.

And then we have the following bit of divine lunacy: Tony Adams is living the road from the seat of his recumbent bicycle.

Truly divine madness. I do not envy him his life, but I certainly envy his freedom.
