A quick update on that music meme there: I’ve discovered another excellent way to keep up with the hip kids and their music — serve as thesis advisor for the radio station’s music director. I got some great recommendations from him that I’ll be checking out over the weekend, and will post more about here soon after.
Also, on Dennis Lehane: I ended up not reading Mystic River on my flight after all, because I couldn’t find my copy of it. I thought I’d brought it to DC. In fact, I thought I had a copy of it at all. I’m completely baffled — if I had it, it’s totally walked off. The good news is that I found a copy of the elusive Gone, Baby, Gone in the Houston airport. So once I finish the Elmore Leonard I’m reading, I’m on to that one.
And, on being home: Good lord, but I love this condo. That is all.
