Hey, y’all! Hanging in there okay 18 hours in? We’re both doing pretty well; I’m reading Tekkonkinkreet and Jessica’s reading A Fountain Filled with Blood, but she’s thinking of switching to Riddley Walker. It’s about 10pm here on the West Coast of the US, and making it all the way till 5am might be a toughie but we’re gonna give it a go. And you know what we’ve got to tide us over as a midnight snack?
That’s right, suckers. HOMEMADE GUACAMOLE.
We actually ate this batch earlier, but there’s more in the fridge if either of us get a craving for some sweet, sweet avocado. (The secret ingredient? LOVE. Also possibly canned salsa.)
Oh! Also! We built this…creative book-clock as part of the Hour 16 Time Flies Mini-Challenge. So, going clockwise starting at the top, we’ve got: The Once and Future King by T. H. White; Three Hainish Novels by Ursula LeGuin; Life of Pi by Yann Martel; Four Major Plays by Aristophanes; Vurt by Jeff Noon; Babel-17 by Samuel Delany; Farm 54 by Galit and Gilad Seliktar; 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad; and City of a Thousand Suns by Samuel Delany again. Looking at this, I’m kind of glad regular clocks don’t go 1 – 3 – 3.14 – 4 – 12 – 17 – 54 – 172 – 1000. Being on time is hard enough as it is…
