IM IN UR TREE, SCARIN UR BIRDZ
There's a massive carpet python currently residing at the top of one of the trees in our backyard. It's been there for three days now (but might have been there longer, as I was only alerted to it by a large group of scared birds kicking up a fuss over it), and doesn't seem to be intent upon leaving anytime soon. It seems to have eaten fairly recently too, leaving us all dreading which of the local brushtail possums it might have picked off for its meal.

Now that my forty-day Lent embargo on buying books is over, I've stormed Amazon.com, which is always great fun. I pre-ordered Alan Alda and Hugh Laurie's next books (both out in September), and from one of the marketplace sellers bought Loitering with Intent: The Child, the first volume of Peter O'Toole's memoirs. When I'm actually going to have time to read these books between all the church fathers literature and early Judeo-Christian stuff I'm reading presently, I'm not exactly sure. But they'll get read eventually!

Current Mood: relaxed relaxed

Hugh's book is coming out in September? Oh, fantastic! It's called "Paper" something, isn't it?

The Paper Soldier. If it's anything like The Gun Seller, I know I'm in for a good read. :D

Wonderful! Thank you so much for keeping me in the loop about this!

So Paper Soldier is ACTUALLY coming out? It's had a tentative date of "about five months from now" since 2004 and I want to read it!

Well, Amazon's got a page and a release date for it now, so I'm thinking yes. Of course publishers can be absolute wankers about delaying these things, so I'm not surprised about the tentative date thing. But Amazon's already processed my order, so I would hope that it's released at the time listed.

Snake? Wow! Take pictures if possible! (Or maybe call in Harry Potter.)
