went to the bank to deposit checque (yay, we shall live another couple months thanks to our small company contract whose owner is fantastic about paying, while the big company screws us over some more). stopped by the little asian food- and giftstore to buy curry and some other random goodies, like coconut spread, kimchee, and japanese "calpis water" (which was, contrary to its somewhat unfortunate name, très yummy, albeit not carbonated as the store owner claimed). and to chapters, to look for farthing and the virtu. they didn't have either, *mope*, though that means i'll be able to calm down about the latter, and make myself wait until it comes out in paperback. the paramour bought up almost their entire stock of kakura puzzles. and of course i couldn't walk out without buying something; that'd be the day.

also went into canadian tire to see whether they'd have a kickboard, but no win. bought two thick noodles instead, with which, in combination with a piece of lexan yet to be acquired, i am hoping to fashion myself a see-through kickboard.

and now i go swimming with the noodles to inaugurate them. i love floating in the water, looking below at all the life in the intertidal zone. neap tide!

I'm liking the Czerneda series so far, and Ilium/Olympos did a lot right that I think you'll enjoy. Not sure about the Carey despite reading Kushiel's Scion somewhat avidly right now. :)

i started reading the czerneda, and while loving all the BC and salmon stuff, am seriously annoyed at the junior high behaviour of mac and em. i think i might have to put it on the back burner, since i just finished mélusine against which little other writing will be able to stand.

I really liked The Virtue. Haven't seen Farthing yet, but I reread The Prize in the Game and it made me cry again.

I think there's both fizzy and non-fizzy Calpis, and I prefer the non-fizzy.
