That particular tirade is triggered more by the fact that Derek is thinking about pets in today's post, For Better or Verse; Chapter 42, Brown 68 , than by anything else other than that I happen to be pretty tired from trying to get things done today, some of which I had intended to do yesterday but that my weekend was largely requisitioned by the lady of the house who had two days off and expected me to drive her to one end of the earth on Saturday and another on Sunday, so she could get fantastic Craig's List deals on things she has long wanted to have for the house. Sorry, I'm ranting again.
I did finish reading another e-book, and wrote a Goodreads review of it, Immortal Betrayal, a book which was not really bad. I should probably have praised it for breaking genre conventions, as I couldn't really tell you what kind of book it is. It also had some interestingly creative ideas.
