12:40 pm: We appologize for the inconvenience
I'm just waiting for my breakfast pizza to cook. I began watching MST3K episode 04, "Gamera vs. Barugon" shortly after I overslept but I don't think I'll continue before going to work. It's not one of their best but it is one of their first. Fourth, actually. It's still good and I know I'll watch it all the way through when given a better chance but I'm not really in the mood for it this morning.

Part of it is I'm nearly through reading the fifth book in the Hitchhiker trilogy. It's probably my least favourite of the five and I'm at the point in the last few chapters where I just want to get it over with. There's more drama than comedy in this one and early on events turn in a direction that begin to worry me and never quite turn back, thus leaving me rather unsatisfied with the ending. I should stop at the end of book four with god's final message to his creation but it's difficult to stop when I've read so much already.

So basically, the sooner I finish this book, the sooner I can begin Long, Dark Teatime of the Soul, found at a used book store a couple weeks ago. sacredspud has been recommending this to me for as long as I've known him and I'm anxious not only to see why he enjoys it so much, but to also read something new by Douglas Adams since I've only read the Hitchhiker books so far.

Sounds like the pizza is ready. Time for breakfast.

Good to hear you're checking out Long, Dark Teatime. It might be my favorite Douglas Adams book (but maybe not, I hate choosing favorites). It follows Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, but don't worry about reading the books out of order. Most of the people I know who have enjoyed both stories either read the second one first, or read it after not liking or not understanding the first one, enjoyed it, and then reread the first book. That's how I did it, and I would recommend doing it others.

I began reading yesterday. The first line made me laugh and by the end of the first chapter I was hopelessly hooked. I'm going to seek out more by Adams whenever I get a chance which will probably make reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series next all that much more difficult.
