Reading The Subtle Knife, which is the second book after The Golden Compass in Philip Pullman’s trilogy, and enjoying it, but not being “wowed” by it. Climbing at Metro Rock with, among others, Deirdre! Playing the occasional game of Settlers. Trying to understand the cat’s neuroses, including his constant need to stare at the ceiling. Watching the first Battlestar Galactica of the new season, and loving it. Watching the first Doctor Who of the new season and hating it. Skiing at Mount Sunapee with Jer and having an absolute blast.
