Hoc Est Qui Sumus

In other news, liver transplants for your cat are a good idea, and the cure for the antibiotic-resistant staph virus will soon be patented: patented Scottish rock-slime. Fuckers.

1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?

I don't usually read newspapers in paper format, and I rarely read magazines. There you are. It's "set exclusion" - nooch.

2. What is your favorite novel?

The Glass Bead Game by Herman Hesse.

3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)

Um, no - that's a little hard for me right now. I have a book where I keep my "short list" if you ever want to read them.

4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?

I take this to mean my "to read before I die list" - GEB: Eternal Golden Braid (Hofstadter), Infinite Jest (David F. Wallace), Phillip K. Dick, Sandman (Gaiman), A New Kind of Science (S. Wolfram), The Boomer Bible (Laird), Understanding Physics (Asimov), On Concurrent Programming (Schneider [no, not that one!]), Every-/Anything translated by Thomas Cleary, Collected Poems (Auden), and stopping . . . now.

5. What are you currently reading?

Oh, you shouldn't have asked that: SQL Queries for Mere Mortals by two guys (I don't remember who), A Love Worth Giving by Max Lucado, The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass, Popular Music by the inimicable Stephen Burt, Paris out of hand (a wayward guide) by Karen Elizabeth Gordon, Building Secure Software by John Viega and Gary McDraw, Security Engineering by Ross Anderson, Testing Computer Software by Cem Kaner, Jack Falk, and Hung Quoc Nguyen, Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckels, and A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar.

People on Amazon who bought these items also bought this. ;)

I wasted too much time on that - Logjam's been sitting on for about a day now. Argh.
