Started Einstein's Dreams recently (Sunday night or Monday morning), and I'm almost done. A very short novel. Each chapter is supposed to be a dream, some conception of how time works. Little vignettes taking place in Germany in 1905. time flows backwards time is subjective, there is no future, the future is determined, everyone knows when the world is going to end, no one remembers anything, and on and on. Lots of different ideas of time. There is a prologue, an epilogue, and several interludes, where we actually see little glimpses of Einstein's life as he struggles with his theory.

A fun read, and I actually have two copies, so I'm happy to lend one out.

Pretty excited about the game tonight. Oh, and speaking of games, I won a Seafarer's game last night. It was pretty one-sided, so not as much fun as Catan games can be. Still hanging out with friends and playing games is not a bad thing.

I wonder what the weather is going to be like. Not sure if I am going to go to the Museum of Science or not. Of course, I found out that my housemate is going to be out tomorrow night, so I could have the house to myself all evening. Not that I'd do anything exciting with it, of course. Speaking of exciting, I made a dollar waiting for the bus this morning. Someone asked if I had change fo a five. I only had four ones, but she took it anyway, since she needed to get on the bus. After the fact, I thought that I might have asked for her phone number to give her the other dollar at a later time. Of course, that would have likely seemed desperate and creepy. And, as far as I know, I'm neither desperate nor creepy. Still, it might have been an interesting thing to do. Some time, I should do something like that, just to see what happens. If nothing else, it would give me something to write about.

Red Sox game in the company box. A game when they're on a winning streak and free food. Woo!

Its a good thing I'm not going. Me showing up at a Sox game is a sign that they are going to loose badly that night. The last game I went to, they lost not only that game, but two games thereafter. They sent me a nice letter asking me to stay away.

Book + ballgame

I received _Einstein's Dreams_ as a birthday gift, must be close
to a decade ago. I liked it quite a bit, too.


P.S.: Have fun at the ballgame, but not too much fun. Your
Guys are at odds with the East Bay's Own for the wild card
spot... enclosed please find a ticket for majes! ;->

I got the book for the first time a decade ago, too (it came out in 1993). It is inscribed from an ex interest, someone I spent the summer after high school discussing dreams with over the phone.
