slow times

not too much going on.
i read a few pages of baudolino each day on BART,
but mostly i'm reading You'll be the Death of Me, by Miriam Lynch, 'a zebra mystery puzzler #25' from 1979. The idea is it's a whodunnit and there's a few sealed pages at the back which you're supposed to write your guesses on and then unseal to see who actually dunnit. I'm pretty sure i'll have no idea. I pretty much never use my brain. Or i second and third guess myself and the author and mistake clues for typos or stylistic oopsies. The pleasant part here is that Miriam Lynch actually did a fair job of writing and i'm enjoying her style. Yay!
