Week in Review

I'm turning the opening of this post over to a special guest blogger:

As Emmy said, we were away this weekend; Chad's grandmother's birthday is this week, so we went down to Long Island on Saturday morning to see her. His parents also came down, and we had a very nice dinner Saturday night with the family and the two couples who live on either side. Sunday we left after a surprisingly excellent lunch in a little strip-mall Chinese place. One of the dishes was roast duck slices wrapped in a pancake with a little sauce, kind of like a fajita, which was so amazingly good that I ate much more than I should have and regretted it for the rest of the day. And night.

The week proper was pretty busy; Chad has a lot on his plate at work at the moment, hence the shut office door that so distressed Emmy, and I am starting to have things pile up in a very ominous manner. On the other hand, I won two cases since I've last updated, one slightly more important than usual and one rather important: good reminders of the results all this work can hopefully produce.

I'm trying out Furl, an online bookmarking/file-cabinet service, which looks reasonably promising so far. I'd used it to note a number of articles as possibly worth blogging, but looking at them again, they don't make the cut. So my only news for the week is that there are not one but two new Dortmunder books due in April: a new novel, The Road to Ruin, and a collection of short stories, Thieves' Dozen (I had no idea that there were short stories).

By the way, does anyone out there know if it's possible to put permalinks (that is, http://www.livejournal.com/users/kate_nepveu/####.html) in an S1 style? Attempts at hacking it myself have been unsuccessful, and I really don't want to move to S2.
