eliphas, napping

Stupid weather forecast. Also, books.

The weather forecast had prophesied mostly clouds for Saturday, and partly-sunny for Sunday, so I spent a brilliant autumn Saturday grocery shopping and riding my motorbike, and the evening bicycling all over town for the Tech and Science Open Night.

Then I went to bed early because the following day (today) I wanted to go for a hike in the hills. Only, when I awoke at 8, it was raining. I slept two more hours and it was still raining. So much for my plans for the day, and I went back to bed and slept another four hours. Only when I had breakfast, the rain ceased. In the late afternoon, some blue sky was visible through the clouds. Stupid weather forecast. It used to be that something as irrelevant as rain didn't keep me from long walks, but hiking in the flatlands in the rain is pleasant if one is dressed for the weather, in the hills it's a muddy and slippery affair.

At least I got enough sleep.

Last week I was very busy fighting entropy by putting an immense amount of energy into getting through my to-do-list, with some success.

I also read a few books.

ETA: Fandom is all over it. Neil Gaiman has some very reasonable things to say about things the author knows about the characters. There is the expected howling and gnashing of teeth from the expected non-fandom places (mocked here).
