This is a certain kind of pleasure, a small & specific but deliciously satisfying pleasure, in finding that someone I really admire has their own website. I can now be an Aimee Bender completist because she has links to stories I haven't read before! I love the net, I really do.

Another pleasure this week, a bigger but perhaps more diffuse pleasure, kind of an open-ended pleasure, is the fact that I tested out my audio setup on a Chinese restaurant yesterday & it sounds *really good*! I mean you can hear the wok sizzling like it's right there! Wheeeeee!
