Spent some time on Landscape today. I’ve got it to the point where you can drag icons around the land,
I spent most of the day today on chores: mowing the front lawn (the seasons are moving along now such that I only need to haul out the mower every other weekend), taking my weekly backup tape to a safety deposit box, cleaning my pond, etc. I then treated my parents to a dinner of fish and chips at Applebee’s, on a whim.
After dinner, we wandered a nearby bookstore, where I followed my standard modus operandi by buying a motley crew of books:
- A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Podium, a collection of quotes and humorous stories
- Big Trouble, a novel by Dave Barry
- From the Dust Returned, a novel by Ray Bradbury
- The Essential Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson (the first C&H collection)
- Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind Perfect Collection, Volume 1, a manga by Hayao Miyazaki
