I am sitting in Brewberry’s, having finished coffee (in a real cup!), a carrot cake muffin (300 calories, conservatively), and a few more pages of The Big Short by Michael Lewis (Moneyball, The Blind Side). I just got it from the library, where I’d been on a waiting list for a couple of weeks. A great if sobering read, especially for me, since my job currently is to set up a computer system for bond traders. I also have been reading Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist by Stephen Batchelor, on Kindle on the iPhone and laptop. Historical Buddha, sans reincarnation.
