Holy Mother of God.  Week one of work.

Suddenly, I'm the proud owner of about a dozen casefiles.  Thankfully, only half of them have court dates scheduled for the next month.  This means I will actually have some days in the office to get some real work done.

Amazingly, in the span of a week, going to court has gone from a novel and flawless experience to a significant chunk out of an otherwise busy day.

But then, I can see how having half of a day out of the office every now and then can be good, too.

Now, it's the weekend and, really, the last thing I want to do at home in my free time is to look at a computer screen.  Off to read this.  And, if I get tired of that, perhaps this new arrival instead.

Back when I can come up for air.

Yikes. Hardly restful reading. Maybe you should try one of his books. I highly recommend Mad Laughter.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the new gig.

Heh... I know: it is kind of sick that I consider these "brain candy," but it is for me.

Doris Kearns Goodwin is a little lighter than most of the history I read (but then, I was a history major, and a geek at that), and I also picked up a fascination with Tibetan Buddhism when I was in college. I'm certainly not a Buddhist myself, but studying it (even the little that I have) acquainted me with the first belief system that compelled me to re-examine everything I had previously thought about the worldview I had constructed.

I'll have to look into the ones you recommended, though.

Oh sure, first you abandon us for work and then you abandon us for books. Jeez!

I swear, I'm sure you'd enjoy it.
