Oddly, I have been listening to Agatha Christie on audiobook- lazily. Wow she relies on the absent clue.

Hi, I am listening to Mr Tickle by Roger Hargreaves, which fortunately conforms to my own level of intelligence. The story has taught me that is is acceptable to chase and attack people, as long as I have long arms, which I do. That is my book report. Thank you.

Okay, I’m adding that to the story.

The Chin and Nacia story is well under way. Jack (chin) is now going to read Mr. Tickle in it. Works well with his character—adds depth.

In the end he will be collared, subjugated, abused, and begging for every second of it, so a brief pleasure like Mr. Tickle will be a reward. Who knew Cacian (Nacia) could be so cruel-to-be-kind?

I was sent to boarding school on the strength of spelling that word wrong...I wrote my own sick note...to account for a three week absence.

About 1/2 way through Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals


About 1/2 way through Chris Ferrarra's "Liberty, The God that Failed"


I dug out an old book (from the 1980's) from Donald Westlake titled "High Adventure". Even after all these years it hung together and was a fun read.
