Sadly, Peter Benchley died. Jaws being one of my favorite movies of all time, I will mourn the loss of its creator. I have also read The Island by Benchley (good old Literary Thrillers class with Gary Hoppenstand) and he's a fun writer, sort of bridging a gap between fine contemporary literature and fluff horror/sci fi. In other words, what I like to read.
Today is Monday, February 13. Garfield the cat's least favorite day. I do need to note, people, that in fact Stirf the cat is not my cat. He is, however, extremely photogenic and thus a good subject for experimentation with my new digital camera. He was on loan from Steve and Melissa.
