So I imported a copy of Thicker Than Water by Mike Carey, the fourth installment of his Felix Castor series.  It's definitely my favorite series published in recent years (Discworld stood as a challenger until Unseen Academicals kinda sucked), and Mike Carey is just such a stellar writer.  I hated how the entire series is out in Britain and they're releasing the books one a year in the States.

I want to start it, and I probably will tonight, but there's just so much other stuff I should be doing.

On an entirely different note, I've started watching a tv show: Dexter.  I think it airs on Showtime (as far as I'm concerned, it airs on surfthechannel), and it's about an emotionless serial killer that hunts other serial killers.  It's a lot of fun; I like it.
