Just when I thought we were done with this whole meme thing for 2005, I get hit with another one from Marko. Thanks buddy, thanks a lot! You know, in order to stop these things, somebody has to refuse to do it. That is the only way…amputate the branch before it becomes a trunk. (Pardon my nerdy anology…I was up way too late last night, and I’m working on nested code this morning.) I would take my own advice, but doing so would suggest that I don’t listen to music and don’t read books. So…in an effort to not come off as an uncultured, illiterate jerk…I’ll keep the Baton moving.
Number of Books…in Boxes
All of our shelves have been dismantled and packed up for the move, and all of our books are in boxes. My best guess is that we have 5 or 6 boxes worth, or about 3 tons.

Book Reading Right Now
Well, most of our books are in boxes right now…but I’ve been reading a lot of Mastering 3ds Max 4 (co-authored by Chris Murray, one of my college professors) – Yes, it’s old, but I needed to brush up on some things for a 3d project that Amy and I have been trying to wrap up.
