Lions And Tigers And Elephants

This fine Thursday morning I'm waiting here for the termite guy to look around the inside of our house and tell us we don't have any termites. At any rate, that's what I'm hoping he'll say. I've no reason to suspect otherwise, but you never know. Our walls could be teeming with the wood-eating vermin, chewing away at our equity. Or they could be filled with pirate gold. One never knows.

[Update: No termites. Also, no pirate gold. Guess everything's a tradeoff.]

Yesterday afternoon Lisa IM'd me from work to say hello. Unsurprisingly, she's been pretty tired lately (helping someone grow a liver and bones and a heart is pretty exhausting), and when she gets home, all she can manage to do is have dinner and then sit quietly, trying not to fall asleep in front of the TV. So she said she wanted to do something fun this weekend, something we've never done before. I resisted the urge to make a few dirty jokes (never, ever, ever antagonize a pregnant woman), and we now have tickets to the circus this weekend. I think the last time I went to the circus, I was in third or fourth grade. Very excited.

Finished Toby's book, and was quite pleased. Looking forward to the sequel, man.

Now Reading: Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, by Gary K. Wolf. It's all part of my new entertainment strategy: see the movie, then eighteen years later, read the book.
