Today I actually got to write code, and it made me happy.
More importantly, I finished To Say Nothing of the Dog, by Connie Willis, and I can report to you, dear reader, that it is a great book that you should read. Very funny! It's pretty clever, because it's a nod to (sendup of?) a famous British comedy (Three Men In A Boat, by Jerome K. Jerome, subtitled "To say nothing of the dog"), a comedy of manners, AND a mystery novel. Oh, and there's time-travel, so it's technically science fiction. Mostly, it's a lot of fun, and the author does a really good job of keeping the reader just a few steps ahead of the characters, thereby deriving much humor and suspense, without making the characters dumb.
I had read a number of Connie Willis books before, and they were well-done, but not much fun, so I wasn't really sure why she was so acclaimed. Now I get it.
