Read Coraline by Neil Gaiman.  I was in the mood for something light in reading style, and this caught my eye when browsing through the public library’s e-texts.  Dunno if I’ll count it as my #18th book read.  Maybe I’ll double-head it with Bradbury’s “The Playground.”  But back to Coraline.  I appreciate that Gaiman chose a girl for his explorer.  There aren’t many good adventurous girl-characters.  At least not many that I’ve found.  That’s probably past of the reason why I don’t pay too much attention to the gender of characters…

Writing-wise, I did some thinking about Divine Fire (which I understand is much different than actually writing Divine Fire) and finished another AC article.

Ran three miles today and played a good amount of disc this week.  It’s so much easier to go out and run when it’s overcast.  If tomorrow is like today, I might have to go running in the morning.  Something I never do on Saturdays.

Ah!  I never mentioned in my lj that we aren’t going to Colorado this weekend.  Eric checked the hotel and found it to be nearly as expensive per night as one of our plane tickets.  Just too much for a disc tournament.  We now have yet more credit on Southwest Airlines which we’ll use come WFC time.  Disc-wise, sectionals are down in Tucson and regionals are here again.  There’s a one-day in Flagstaff that I’ll go to if I can bum a ride.
