I finished The System of the World today. It's the last book in Neal Stephenson's Baroque trilogy. I had been putting it off, and reading other books just to prolong the story's inevitable ending. Cryptonomicon and this trilogy are in my top ten for detailed, comprehensive worlds, intricate plotlines, and enormous casts of characters that you can actually keep track of. Others on that list include Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, Dan Simmons' Hyperion/Endymion, and Herman Wouk's Winds of War/War and Remembrance.

Tonight, I played Everquest on two computers at once, and listened to my CD changer on random, playing mellow songs. Sean's druid was helping my ranger stay alive, and I scooted back and forth between the two screens. Then, I watched Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. It wasn't as dumb as I thought it would be, and I mean that in a good way. The best part was when they started singing along to Wilson Phillips. And yes, I am aware that I shouldn't even know which group that was...

And now, I am off to bed, a little later than I should, but feeling pretty good. My parents did take Honey back, but at least I got to take care of her for a week.
