Finished the Illuminatus! Trilogy fnord. It is much more a written cross between a guild game and a unit of philosophy than a novel. You could totally imagine the whole thing being an edited transcript of a 10-day, with the appendices being part of a poorly-organized wrapup document. I was disappointed to see it has sequels, for reasons that are somewhat complex.
In other news, I really need to figure out what I want and then girl up to flavor.
