Blue Skies again

The weather had a turn around this weekend, and we had some nice blue -- if somewhat hazy skies. The haze was a little odd though, from dolores park you could not see past the city to the bay as you normally can.

Read the Kite Runner. Great book. Easy read. Sad on numerous levels.
Saw Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and thought it so-so. Rewatched Rushmore thinking I had not seen it before. Better, but as good as the raves it gets? Not sure.
Still reading Wilson's Consilience.
Am going to attempt to read the King James Bible. The intro was a fascinating lesson in bibilical history which I'd been wondering about recently (how different for instance is the Jewish bible from the Christian bible (turns out, beyond the new testament, the order is different, and there are some additions and subtractions of books) )
Finished Prince of Persia the Warrior Within which wasn't so bad once you turned down the sound and got used to (and could ignore) the annoying voices of characters one had to fight.
