Mundanity, fiction, & conversation

Lousy morning and afternoon full of paperwork and cleaning. Began getting better in late afternoon when I had a chance to relax for a bit and continue re-reading The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin.

In the car on the way to SF finished listening to A Family Affair by Rex Stout, on tape. This line goes into my quote file:
Confound it, quit scorning my diction. -- Nero Wolfe (Rex Stout)

Evening with my sweetie Maggie (aka kyubi -- check out her great interest list): dinner at Godzilla Rain Tree, hanging over the retaining wall at Ocean Beach, and drinking sweet hot things at Simple Pleasures Cafe. Much conversation.

Dragged over from...

...wcg's journal: an explanation of my license plate.

No, it isn't a variation on "No Drama". Actually, it's from this quote:
The dharma of the dharma is that there are no dharmas. But now that the no-dharma doctrine has been revealed, how can the dharma of the dharma be a dharma?
(dharma=law or doctrine)

Don't ask me why I love that quote so much, because I'm not usually a "no rules" kind of person or anything...
