Finally finished Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance". It was a good time for me to read it (although it occurred to me that any time would probably have been a good time to read it), and I wish that I had a little more time just to chill and think about it. Unluckily, I've got an assignment for my MBA which I need to be getting started on. ZatAoMM was good reading: I've been doing quite a lot of work on "knowledge" recently (partly for the MBA), and it slotted some of it into place. If only it had taught me a little more about motorcycles, too. (-8

Office party on Friday night was good, and we didn't get to bed too late. Spent Saturday morning present shopping, and had a nice rest of weekend, including leaving Moo to do the wrapping (at her suggestion), doing a big recycle run (how do we get through so many bottles?), more MBA work, a post-wedding party on Sunday evening (ridiculous time for it), tuning my pppd on-demand settings (now connect at 50+kpbs, was around 19kbps), and stuff. Life seems good.
