Pic of the day – Aaaand that would be my bedroom

The workmen finally started today. I don’t know exactly what’s going on in there, but I know (1) I am staying out until they are done, and (2) I sure hope they covered the bookcases!!

On an only slightly peripherally related note, I’ve started reading David Brin’s new book, Existence. It starts out with a similar “OMG, what have we gotten ourselves into?” slash “Danger – Microbial Hazard” sort of feel to it. I just finished Daemon by Daniel Suarez, and it is very interesting seeing the related themes of technology as evolutionary at the species and biome level, but being played out in such different ways.
