Yet another person who reads while walking down the street. I had to run to catch up with him to find out what was so gripping...luckily the book slowed him down.

Reading City of Saints and Madmen, by Jeff Vandermeer.

It was first thing in the morning and I was late for work so the conversation was short (though the running helped me make up time...)--he picked it up because he likes the author and it's a really good book.

So, what is the city of saints? Am I the only one who doesn't know? Rome? Good ole 'Stinople? Looks like onion domes on the cover.

And, uh, what university did you get your PhD at heather? Corn dogs, I mean, they're pretty good.

I totally understand. Deep fried diploma is a delicacy.
