Giblets (yeah, I mean the chewy gut-bits of a turkey)

Just a quick update...

In less than two weeks I get to quit my job. I am extatic. I really need to find a summer job that doesn't make me want to open a vein.

Reading (almost finished) Barbara Kingsolver's "The Poisonwood Bible." Well written, but I hope she didn't mean it to be a virulently anti-American as it is coming across. Given her political writings though, I bet it is. Summary: Jesus and Uncle Sam ruin a perfectly happy African nation.

Finished Harry Potter. No reason to live. It was good, but the last word was not "scar." Harry it a total Christ-character.

Reading more Robert Jordan. I wan't to stop, but I can't. Isn't there a 12 step program for this?

Feeling happy for the first time in months. Likely the effect of a new bag of kava.

I will be visiting Boston between Aug 22 and 26. Then to Missouri. Then to 17 credits of madness.
