This weekend's partying, visiting, and relaxing: a success.

And it's not over yet.


Also, in different news, I liked the borrowed-from-Alicia Young Adult novel Incarceron (by Catherine Fisher, 2007) enough that right after finishing it I put a library hold on its sequel, Sapphique (2008). The book's last 80 or so pages could have been silly, but that stretch was handled well to defuse the potential silliness. And I really like these characters.

Also also, I've heard of the third engagement among my circle of friends in the past month. This gladdens me. EDIT! Happily corrected I stand: it's two engagements, and a couple who I didn't even know were engaged who got married yesterday! I knew they were a couple, and I knew that they are really good for each other, and I'm smiling like an idiot that they took that next step!
