I was out for my morning walk, and stopped by the lab to take care of fish, and then by my office to grab another stack of papers that need grading. They were unexpectedly heavy. I think my weekend is about to get longer and more miserable.
But I also continued my walk on down to the coffeehouse, and I’m procrastinating horribly. I fired up an old book on my iPad — Swords And Deviltry, by Fritz Leiber — and now I just want to sit around all day revisiting Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Leiber was a phenomenal writer who actually gave his sword&sorcery stereotypes unique personalities. I’d almost forgotten how good these stories were.
I just had to mention that. Before I start walking home. Before I lock myself down for a few hours of grading papers.
