Haven't started drinking yet, sadly--I'm moving pretty well, if slowly, on Matrix. Can't decide if drinking would help or hinder. Also, I'm getting really, really tired of treading water on this one, and I want to move on to Attack of the Clones already.
I did just go back and read "Troy in Fifteen Minutes," partly for old times' sake, but partly... partly because I kind of wanted to see how I did it. You know? I'm starting to wonder how I ever did it at all.
