Green Mean Day... Where's My Guiness and Scotch

Started reading Hermann Hesse's 'Steppenwolf' last night around midnight and found myself at page 184 a few hours later had to finally put it down so i could get some semblance of sleep. I think I'll have it finished in the next day... what a great book. Kanka gave it to me for my birthday. After I finish it I'm going to start reading the Marc Eliot's new bio book on my hero Cary Grant... I'm really excited about this one. I've been struggling to do a few sets of work on grant but just can't find the right footing to start it. Hopefully this will help. Also picked up along with my new Cary grant book, Patrick McGilligan's 'Alfred Hitchcock : A Life in Darkness and Light'.... should also be a good read (Hitch is the greatest director of all time.. we should clone him).
Also just finished reading John Gribbin's 'In Search of Schrodinger's Cat: Quantum Physics And Reality' and am going to move on to another work of his called 'Schrodinger's Kittens and the Search for Reality: Solving the Quantum Mysteries'. I really like Gribbin's books, he has a way of dealing with extremely complex ideas in a matter-of-fact kind'a way. There is a hell of a lot of math involved with these books... so I'm having to teach myself algebra, geometry, calculus, and trigonometry (should have paid more attention in high school). This is all working out extremely well for me though. I have been trapped working on the '100 Small Works' series 'Hot, Young, and Eager on 25¢ a Day' for well over a year now. Concepts from quantum theory as well as several sets of number theories I've been working with, are all being utilized in these works are finally starting to make sense and a chaotic pattern is finally beginning to take shape. Just as I had hoped for. It'll be another year before I finish the works due to their intense detail... plus i have to make a trip to Vegas with them to put on the final touches.
Plan on going over to Kanka's tonight to have a Patties Day drink... no bars far me. To many wacko Jacko's around... plus days like these are as my father always says 'amateur night'... I'd have to agree.

Just created a small set of postcards to mail to a select few... Robert Blake victory correspondences. I'm really happy with them... hope all who recieve one enjoy. I'll be mailing them tomm.
