I'm at home, sick with some kind of strangulating throat malaise, and have been since yesterday morning. And the fact is, I'm bored stiff. I haven't enough mental horsepower to do anything worthwhile, and my attention span is on the order of fifteen minutes max. What to do? Read blogs!
Of course, it doesn't take all that long to make the rounds of the blogs I usually read--at least, not when you're making a day of it--so I've been trawling through the blogrolls. The only blog that I've seen so far that's new to me that I feel like linking to is this one.
I realize that under the circumstances, this probably doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement. Oh, well. I feel rather like Marvin the Paranoid Android this morning-- "Don't bother trying to engage my enthusiasm, because I haven't got one."Posted by Will Duquette at April 27, 2005 08:13 AM
Definitely, link to and read Mental Multivitamin, very good. And on another post, of course, I remember Watership Down. It is a good book, although I'm surprised to hear that there's another book like it. I always thought it was a sort of an oddball book.

The similarity is very strong in some ways, but very remote in others. Watership Down is by far the better book, and I'm already looking forward to sharing it with my kids in a few years. I might someday read Duncton Wood again, but I doubt it.
