So I have a few calls to field a bit later today, but I can still relax and have breakfast in the meantime. I also may go out to the library and pick up the copy of Orson Scott Card's _Ender's Shadow_ that's on reserve for me. I'll be done with _The Diamond Age_ today, with any luck.
Hmmm, I can't think of anything else important to put up here... I don't feel quite like ranting yet, so I'll save that up for later.
