I thought wrong. When I reached his house, I realised that the book was not in my bag like I assumed it was. I called TCC a while ago and they told me that it's not there either.
THIS REALLY SUCKS. I'm on page 67, and this is significant because I hate starting on a new book without finishing the one that I was reading. Sigh. Time to go to Kino and get a new copy.
Wei Chuen and I had lunch at Tony Roma's today. He told me about what he learned in Psych classes, about the brain, over lunch. It was scary. We all like to think that our personalities as individuals are shaped by something bigger than mere biology; but in fact, everything is so mechanical and efficient. It's very humbling. It sort of makes you realise that you're not that important in the grander scheme of things; you're just an incidence in the vast expanse of the mystery of the universe, sometimes barely significant.
