Grey moist Sunday

There was a mammoth yard sale down Borden benefitting some Ugandan youth project. Passed it yesterday on my way to acupuncture, when I didn't have time to stop, so went round today after my eggs benny at Pauper's. (Their eggs benny are merely so-so, but my delicate gut today wanted eggs and only eggs, so Pauper's it was.) If I were in furnishing mode, there was much to tempt me there, but I'm in the opposite just now (de-nesting? possessions weigh the soul?) so I picked up half a dozen ancient Agatha Christies that will do me for when the hot weather melts my brains.

Meanwhile I finished both Nightwatch and Point of Sighs and feel pleasantly replete. What to read after that? Well, I do have a police procedural set in Ghana that might do the trick, though the overarching and congenial Discworld/ Points theme of The City is absent from that one. Still, best to end diminuendo.
