Finished "The Alienist" on Tuesday - I thought the first 80% of it was just fantastic, but the final 20% was a huge let-down. Also spotted an enormous error, which didn't necessarily affect the outcome of the plot but certainly had me confused and confounded, until I just gave up worrying about it (and ultimately led me to conclude that it was just an oversight that nobody seemed to catch). I'm re-reading "House of Leaves", which is STILL creeping me out, even though I've already read it somewhat recently.

Other news, other news... I've discovered that my mom reads this journal from time to time. Hi, Mom! I've quit smoking pot and I'm gonna quit smoking cigarettes this weekend! And I say that not just for her benefit - I really am gonna quit smoking this weekend. I've also started eating somewhat healthier food and at some point in the near future I'm gonna get a physical and and make sure I'm not dying. I'd like to eventually expand this idea to actual physical exercise, but let's not get crazy.

I have some other news to report, but for various reasons that'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Finally, in related news, I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to the woman. Happy birthday, kayhoe!!!!
