reading the first (I think) of the Travis McGee novels. (Deep Blue Goodbye)

I have to say I started reading it right after the last of the Pratchett books, and was immediately disapointed, the difference in writing style is astounding. I had to put it down and get in the mood for it first.

I am a little put off by the way he spends so damned much time developing details I’m frankly not all that interested in and are not necesarily cogent to the book; I consider the way he’s coyly promiscuous with anything skirtwise a bit crude- but it’s coming along. If the next books straighten up I may enjoy them a good deal. Update: Oh, nevermind, he’s a moron, this will be the last one of THESE I read.

Meanwhile, at the time of this writing I have no stomach for the erection. I am going to get a sound nights sleep and deal with what the morning brings, because that is all any of us can do.

But if Obama gets elected, my life will be a whole lot different by friday. And no, I won’t discuss any of it here.
