Where Does My Time Go?

I just got a book that I ordered a while ago: Cagebird. It's the third in a trilogy of science fiction novels, and it just came out. When I went to put it in my room I realized that I have a stack of books that I'm planning on reading and it's six inches high. Maybe it's a good thing athena is RAM-less for a week or two.

You may be wondering what you get out of all of this, because, well, you're very selfish. And I support that. Why should you, random person who likely doesn't see me very often (if at all), care that I have a stack of books that I am resolved to spend more time reading?

The answer is that when I read, my mind gets into a more--if you can imagine such a thing--analytical mode; I "think better," if you will. Besides the increase in analiticality0, I also have more material, and more time to process, plus a greater desire to share my ponderings on this my pulpit of pontification.

So: I resolve to read this week. I've been a bit bogged down in Dave Hunt's ramblings, but I think if I get through him, I can get to some Orson Scott Card. I fugure it's a good idea to alternate between theological works and science fiction so as to keep my fantasy bug happy, and get to study intriguing and practical issues concerning the most important matter in the universe.

Speaking of bogging down, I'm going to go to bed now so as not to bog you down and to get a good night's rest before work tomorrow. Maybe I'll even crack open a book afterwards.

0 It's a word if I say it's a word! Seriously. English is delightfully extemsible.


  1. More power to analiticality!! (...which is highly esteemed in these parts.)

  2. Now you have to change your text for the tuxbox link to Athena.

  3. I am totally with you on making up words, Mr. Tizwick, but if I myself were to stick an "-ality" on "analytic," I would spell it ANALYTICALITY. In fact, this is a little known fact, but ANALYTICALITY is the third cousin of ANAGRAMMATICALITY.
