BOOK UPDATE: As of this morning, the count stands at 16,351 words for the book, and I'm doing my best to get the words out as fast as I can -- I can edit them later. I have a notoriously bad memory and I live in fear that good ideas will be lost because I can't get them out of my head and onto a page soon enough.
This second part of the book is more complicated, but I find myself enjoying it more, and realizing that I have quite a bit of work facing me when I eventually get back to the first part. As I say, I don't expect this project to be readable until at least March.
March feels like a long time away.
My wife and I saw "Anchorman" last night.

To that end, I can recommend the movie -- as long as you are not bothered by the absence of a plot.

If there's going to be any string in Los Angeles, it had better be serious string.
