Well, today I was finally over the worst of it. I realized that when I cracked a joke in IM with Rusty. I’m still playing mahjong obsessively and I was just made a full member of the Brotherhood of the Smackdown (if you know what that means, then you’re playing the wrong game). But if fits and starts I did a chapter by chapter breakdown, listing each and every scene, of If Truth Dies. I’m trying to see if I left out some characters and things that should have been mentioned in the edition of the book that Renebooks brought out.

Improvement, but a long way from normal yet.
