H.G. Wells Is Not a Glass House

I’m busy working my way through H.G. Wells’ doorstop-worthy tome, Shape of Things to Come. Therefore, this will be a short update.

On Friday, Jean, Sunshine, Ardy, and I walked down Smithdown Road and over a bit to Sefton Park. I got a lot of cool pictures (see above) that are available online here.

My weekend was filled with class work, and the beginning of this week is more of the same. Also, I finished my book review of John Scalzi’s The Android’s Dream, and I emailed that to Ed at the SFRA Review. Hopefully I won’t need to do any revisions!

I devised a new burritos recipe that I tried out at Ardy’s on Sunday. I made the burrito mix more like chili by adding a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of kidney beans. It turned out very well, but I have some further ideas for the next batch.

Once I get caught up, I want to read some stories in the books that David Seed gave me today. He had four stacks of books on a filing cabinet and he told Sunshine, Christian, and I to take what we wanted–the more the better. I filled my satchel, and the others grabbed a few too.

I need some sleep, but I have too much reading to do. Back to it!
