Our Internet connection has been on and off (mostly off) for the past few days. It’s been on for more than five minutes now so I thought I’d take a chance and try to post something.
We had a nice little Thanksgiving at my sister-in-law’s house. Saturday we went to my brother-in-law’s house and watched the Arkansas vs. LSU game. It’s hard to believe that football season is almost over. I still do sort of like football but I will be glad when it’s over. I look forward to watching something besides football on Sunday and Monday nights. Although, come to think of it, there’s not anything else on Sunday night.
I finished reading Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott. I downloaded to my Kindle from Project Gutenberg. It’s an odd little book about a two dimensional universe, narrated by one of the citizens of that universe who gets a look at the three dimensional universe. At first it seems like just a silly little thing for geometry geeks but you soon realize that it’s actually about society and attitudes. The “people” in the two dimensional universe are, in some ways, very much like us.
I have started reading Moby Dick. I’m up to Chapter 6.
I’ve already done a lot of Christmas shopping, all online so far. I need to do just a little bit more and will probably brave the local stores soon. But I’m almost out of ideas and it’s getting close to panic time.
