The library here

is really cool. I just browsed through some of the randomly awesome CD's (free jazz, early electronic composers, lots of Dischord Records, Jean-Michel Jarre's Equinoxe [hi Dane!], etc., even a Megadeth CD with a yellow Zia used sticker!) and sat and read a big chunk of Vonnegut. A very pleasant surprise!

Oh, and there's plenty of free used stuff all over the station, books and otherwise. There actually is a small 24-hour unstaffed free store (named Scua Central after the kleptoparasite seabirds that arrive in summer and scavenge anything they can get), so yes, I *can* go thrifting in Antarctica! I got some great wool flannel shirts there the other day.

Man, this already sounds like a major head-clearer, and that sounds nice.
