I love Thackeray to tiny little pieces. He’s so clever and funny and his illustrations crack me up. The Rose and the Ring has nothing on Vanity Fair, of course, but it’s still an entertaining book. I must admit to a smallish crush on Giglio, to be honest. Again, he has nothing on Dobbin, but then there are degrees of awesome.

It’s getting late here (it’s past midnight now), so I’m going to take a break—to sleep and to watch the latest episode of Doctor Who (I am hopelessly addicted to new Who, and that’s a fact!). I’ll be back in six hours or so. I wish I could stay up all night reading, but I start work again on Monday and I need to be wellrested then, which is not going to happen unless I go to bed now. I’d risk it, if it weren’t for the fact that it’s the Euro 2008 final tomorrow night and I wouldn’t miss that for the world, so…
