Cryptonomicon Mention

So the Mercury Retrograde period is just about over, and everything is just about to go back to normal. Just about. I’ve been arguing with the webmaster about what things I approve of having in the “bookstore” and, in fact, why I insist on it being Amazon UK instead of the US version.

Amazon US doesn’t carry my favorite astrology texts, they still owe me money, and the stuff from Amazon UK is usually a better edition, as long as it’s done by a British publisher. Besides, most of the books listed aren’t even available in the States. It doesn’t look like I’m going to get to the grocery store anytime too soon, but there was only one real item that I wanted: Captain Crunch Breakfast Cereal.

“Dude, get the Peanut Butter Captain Crunch, it rocks,” admonished my neighbor.

A few weeks back I read Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon, and there’s a fair amount of text devoted to the main protagonist’s description of how to eat this one cereal. I will, at some future date, attempt to duplicate the actions described in the book — it just sounded like such an appetizing endeavor. Besides, an almost inordinate volume of the of the novel is dedicated to the description of how to eat the cereal, including how to keep the milk in the coldest part of the ice box. On a hot afternoon in Texas, it really does sound good.
