I seem to only read books about wine and Italy lately. Oh, and Sherlock Holmes. I will probably be in need of a nice hard dose of Sci Fi sometime soon, but for now this passage from Under the Tuscan Sun really resonated with me. I was starting to feel this a bit on the walk home from work today, which is good because I am deeply in need of answers.

Lying awake, I feel the familiar sense of The Answer arriving. Like answers on the bottom of the black fortune-telling eight ball that I loved when I was ten, often I can feel an idea or the solution to a dilemma floating up through murky liquid, then it is as if I see the suddenly clear white writing. I like the charged zone of waiting, a mental and physical sensation of the bends as something mysterious zigzags to the surface of consciousness.

You can borrow my Sci Fi Hall of Fame collection if you should like to move away from boring real-world based stuff.

Oh wait. I forgot you hate books that are printed on honest-to-god paper with ink. :p

No, I actually quite like paper books, they're just significantly less convenient for having with me at all times.

Perhaps you can just read me some more of The Caves of Steel to keep me balanced. :)

I know you really don't. But making false accusations is fun! It's the American way.
