Fairly quiet day at work. It's weird to think that I've only got 10 days left there (since Monday's a bank holiday). I've been there over three years now - the longest I've ever been in one job. Went to the ICSF library on the way home to play Magic. It's the first time in ages that I've made it to the Thursday night session - I normally don't finish work in time. But I turned up there tonight at about 20:15, and we didn't finish until 22:00, so I got a few games in, which is good. It's given me some ideas on how to improve my dwarf/minion deck (need flying things...).

Meanwhile, been reading the latest Bujold novel - Diplomatic Immunity. It's out in hardback at the moment, so I was waiting for the paperback. However, I then found Baen, who are selling electronic copies for $5. Bonus! So, downloaded that last night, and I've been reading it on my Palm. Great stuff.

Speaking of books, need to sort out my Amazon order. They tried to deliver some books for me yesterday and today, but nobody was around, so I'll need to go to the depot to pick them up. However, the depot (Acton) is in the opposite direction to work. So, dilemma - do I go there on the way to work tomorrow (arriving even later), or wait until Saturday. Hmm.... Ah, the decision's made for me (via their website) - has to be Saturday. Minor rant - even Parcelforce don't have a postcode database that recognises the existence of our flat :(
