By tomorrow evening I'll be partway towards Deming on the big gray dog. Finished The Apprentice a couple days ago, but Macy's was closed yesterday for the 4th so couldn't pick up any new reading material... rectified that today and picked up Hesse's Siddhartha, which I just finished reading about an hour ago, and Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness, which looks like an interesting read.

Gerritsen's book was of course excellent as usual, and I'm kicking myself for not having read Siddhartha earlier in life. I guess we all have to make those same mistakes anyway, though, if Siddhartha's understanding is correct. Hesse's background, from the short biography at the end of the paperback, is a lot like Daniel Quinn's from Providence, anybody notice that before?

Must control myself at the bar tonight and not drink too many Tecates. Diarrhea on the bus is particularly unpleasant.
