*Got my project 5.9, with a lot of thrash and inelegance. Also got a pair of new routes, probably each a 5.7, and half of something I really hope they are going to dub a 5.9+ or a 5.10. And two of my usual warmup/warmdown routes.

My flist is full of book finishin' determination today. It's inspiring.

I will not be finishing a book today. I am contemplating, in fact, whether I will even try to finish this chapter. I'm in the last scene, but I don't know exactly what Mallory finds under the hydroponics bench.

In any case, after this post, the deathmarch is officially suspended until Monday morning, 7 am. (with possible delays for staying up too damned late at Boskone.)
