In the swing of things

I'm finally starting to feel settled in Austin. It helps to actually live here. Working downtown is pretty cool, and I like the bus. Despite the smells, it's usually a nice ride. I get a lot of reading done; too much in fact. I need a side project, so I'm trying to revive my master's project. We'll see how that goes.

November 10th (Saturday), we are having a BBQ from 3ish to whenever I turn into an angry drunk and kick everyone out. If you're reading this, you're invited. If you're not reading this, something is wrong, please stop before you destroy the universe. Thanks.

I need to read something intellectually stimulating, but I'd prefer fiction. Any ideas? Oh, and happy Halloween.
