but I've had to get used to not having any TV while I'm out here in the woods. Yep, I've grown accustomed to it as a means of destroying unwanted hours of consciousness. It turns out the service I ordered can't get an installer out here before January 7, so I'm forced to find a new way of living.
The result is I'm reading a lot of weird stuff. Brian Martin's The Bias of Science (which I may discuss at Stayin' Alive); War and Peace -- really! Never read it before. So far it's boring; The Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems -- the original, by Galileo, and holy shit was that guy ever ahead of his time; and Human Knowledge, by Bertrand Russell, which is interesting because by now, we know more than he did. But it's surprising what we did know in the 1940s.
I will become an insufferable bore. And I won't have anything to say about last night's Celtic's game. Is this a good thing?
