Voyage 7: Day 21

Little more than a week left. In fact, one week if I’m lucky. It all matters on a few uncontrollable elements. One, how fast we can pump off this cargo. Two, if we run into any weather on our way back. And three, what the port schedule is like when we get back to Texas. So yeah, luck. It all comes down to luck. Which when it comes to luck I am a conduit of the most negative, black luck one can imagine…hmm.

Anyway, with the end coming soon I have been scrambling to catch up on my reading list. Specifically, the books I brought with me at the beginning of this voyage.

First off, I finished World War Z by Max Brooks, a grim, gripping series of interviews about a fictional, present-day war agains’t the legions of the Undead. I’d been meaning to read this for a long time, and I really enjoyed it. A must read for anyone with a zombie plan.  

Secondly, the book I’m currently reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett. Hilarious. Simple hilarious. I haven’t laughed so much reading a book since I read Mogworld by Ben Croshaw. That being said, I have a confession to make. This is the VERY first Terry Pratchett book I’ve ever read. My sins having been revealed, I do plan on reading more of his work after this, namely some of the Discworld novels. Can’t wait to read more.

Lastly, Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card. Honestly, I’m reading this just to continue on with the Ender series. Damn my completionism!!!

That’s all for now. Hopefully by the next log, I’ll know when I’m getting off the boat.

signing off,

Major D
