This is a listing of all the people I might reference in my journal. There are plenty of relatives not included here because they just aren't really a part of my life and I don't see them but once every several years. All people included here have or have had an active part of my life within the past ten years or so.

one of the (many) reasons I adore you is that you have Peng listed at the top of your family list.

Well, next to Shobhit, he's currently the only other member of my immediate family, so it makes sense!

oh, and I finished The Road. I was so moved by it. So stark and oddly hopeful in some ways. By the way, I think he ran the bath so they'd have a water source, not to take a bath.

I'm so glad you read it! I was going to offer to loan you my copy when you came to the party, but then, you didn't make it to the party. So I'm glad you went to read it anyway.

I would like to know, though, if, now that you've read it, you can see why it scared the shit out of me. Or was it just me? It didn't scare Barbara at all. But it creeped the shit out of me.

yes, I can absolutely understand why you would find it so terrifying. It was so dark and unknown and, well, scary.

I have just finished his "Border Trilogy". Also quite dark in many ways. I can't believe I've never read him before. Now I'm reading Blood Meridian, also by McCarthy.

I'm a book worm.
