I have two copies of Idoru and can't find either of them. This is what happens when I pack up books. I never know what I'll want to dig out 6 months from now... so how do I know what's safe to pack away?
So, instead of reading the next book in the series (I just finished Virtual Light and all I can say is, I miss the deck cowboys and molly) I've been reading Fraud by David Rakoff. David is the David who went to Disneyland with Sarah Vowell in Take The Cannoli.
He's pretty damned hilarious and actually used the word Logorhhea. I'm probably way out of the loop, and you've already read it, but luvrhino would definitely enjoy this book.
I've also been sporatically reading I Thought My Father Was God, from the NPR story project. It's a collection of short, true stories submitted by listeners. The stories are about just about anything, but all seem to convey a sense of wonder in the world and it's been a nice thing to read and discover that these things can still be moving in the face of my incredible cynicism.

I've also read several books on religion, re-read several ed gorey books (amphigorey, amphigorey too, amphigorey also), re-read the Book of Leviathan, and parts of Everything You Know is Wrong, the second book from Disinfo.com. No Noam Chomsky articles this time, but lots of things about what the cia and fbi knew before september 11th last year (those were the ones I skipped over. I'm full up on that for quite awhile) .

I am disgustingly rambly today.

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
