a little light reading

Just for the record, I don't recommend reading The Road to Wigan Pier the week after you become unemployed. I took it with me on the plane, and was just about ready to shoot myself by the time I landed in Portland. I'd read it about 10 years ago, and it's much more brutal this side of graduation.

Portland? Yeah, I decided that I should get out of town for a few days to figure out where I want my life to go next, and the one-two punch of Southwest Airlines and royalbananafish made me an offer I couldn't refuse. So I'll be out here for a little while, serving as her scotch taster and personal chef.
