antidote, picnic and other stuff
Antidote was fun, it was good to see some peeps I hadn't seen for quite a while now. I am not sure I will be coming back often though. A very minor thing, but one that troubles me a bit. It may even be a matter of perception on my part, but still. It still was very good and I do recommend the night.

The picnic in Hampstead was very good, it was perfect weather, nearly_everyone was there. Lots of fun; pics of both events will follow.

Tomorrow will be a day of decisions for me. Some may be taken by other people in my stead, which doesn't make it easier.

In the meantime, still reading Cryptonomicon and beginning to get into it, although I still find it a bit tedious in most of the modern-day side of the story.

Stick with it- I had the same problem with it at first. By half way through, I couldn't put it down.
One of the best books I have ever read.

Oh, I wouldn't put it so strongly. I found it difficult to get into it -very difficult, something about the style of writing, the modern era parts of the story still don't grab me. And I don't need three or four pages to learn that Lawrence P Waterhouse had a wet dream. I like a lot of the WWII story and find it very compelling, though.
