I have -- due to circumstances that are really mostly beyond my control -- been unable to snork as much of my yummy new books as I'd liked, to my great chagrin.
The trick is doing that without letting the baby-sat ones kill each other. Most of the time they're well-behaved, but they know how to push each other's buttons, and that's the problem.
Despite this, I managed to read through some of Emu, getting to the grid stuff. Slow going if I don't have a 'puter to fiddle with code right after reading; tomorrow, though, I should have my machine freed up while they peruse a film or two.
For now, though, I'm going to curl up with Karamel Sutra and the Camel.
