Today's Activities Include: tornado warning, summer reading arrives, month of cancel

A moment ago, the cell phones in the house went kinda nuts with a tornado warning for my area until 2:30 p.m. That's always sort of entertaining. I'll be listening for that characteristic sound, but skeptical as long as there is so very much sunshine pouring in through my windows.

Today, summer reading arrived on my kindle: the latest in the Kitty the Vampire series by Carrie Vaughn and the latest in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Yum! Looking forward to them, but sufficiently involved in the Vanza/JAK novel I'm currently (re)reading to not feel like interrupting it.

Also, I picked up _The Dark Side of Valuation_, because I saw the author on Bloomberg yesterday and while I don't think you'll make a ton of money following his investment advice (he's one of those people who produce what-it-is-worth estimates that guarantee you'll NEVER have a chance to buy the really good growth stocks), he is wicked smart and has fantastic perspective and great frameworks for thinking about new companies, old companies and other enterprises that are resistant to standard valuation metrics (e.g. p/e).

It is a full month of cancel! The play therapist is off to England. And various travel plans for my Dutch instructor and for me ensure that we are not going to have a lesson this month. Or see each other for social purposes, for that matter, which, sad face, but hey, September is another month.
