It helps to look at your bookcases occasionally, especially in rooms one doesn't ordinarily read in where the flotsam ends up. And so I am happily reunited with my childhood copy of The Divine Comedy, the one with the Doré engravings. (Well, not actually *mine*- it was my parents'. But the one I read in childhood, yes.)

I don't know how good the translation is, but I've bounced off both the Ciardi and the Pinsky, both in verse form, so a nice unrhymed version might work better.

And aside from that, if it's so bleeding cold, why are there still mosquitoes in my house and why are they still biting me?,

I've noticed that, too—the mosquitos, I mean. They didn't bother me all throughout the hot, hot summer, but now that it's cool, they're out in droves.

Of course, I do live in a house on a reclaimed marsh, so I suppose that's part of it.

Or the very very wet weather we've been having up here. Plenty of breeding grounds. It's just, now we're hitting 40F lows, I expect them to *die*.
