Slowly it returns...

Its been a while since I've had a Starbucks Mocha with Whipped Cream, and right now I'm realising why I liked them so much. Lovely and tasty little numbers they be.

So what's new in the world of weirdness and insanity. I've started reading The Rule Of Four, which so far has been mildly entertaining and just about readable. I do want to see where its going, but I expect its going to be a bit of an anticlimax. Still, I'll keep at it. The library at home is looking better, got a couple of huge floor to ceiling bookshelves from ikea up at the weekend. They worry me in that they do not appear to be highly stable, and my attempt at using the wall bracket failed due to lack of a proper sleeve/plug for plaster board walls. Doh.

I'll get ADSL this weekend, so I'll finally be able to surf the blogs I like in peace. Its not possible at my new project. Shame.

World-wise, I think there is something afoot in the scheme of things. Lots of police at Paddington today - guess there was another threat?

    I read The Rule of Four. I'm looking forward to your thoughts. :0)

    I suspect they've probably just maintained the high security presence at Paddington and will do for some time.

    Finished Rule Of Four...
    Didn't think tooo much of it.
    Found Katie a bit of a filler-character. Wasn't developed enough. Found some of the sub-plots weak. Didn't think the evil characters were developed further enough to give you insight - I mean you couldn't empathise against them. I did like the puzzle solving. I did like the ease of writing/reading. Wouldn't highly recommend the book, its more of a commuting aid than an intellectual or emotional ride. Just my 2p.

    I agree. I think the puzzles were the best part.
