So, this is how being 40 feels...

Anyone know what the warranty is for a 1969 Scorpio? ;)

Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone. It means a lot.

Arisia Arising

So I've officially registered (and made reservations) for my 20th Arisia in a row. (scary, no?)

Anyone know when panel signup starts? :)

In honor of the day...

Better by far to live and die,
Under the brave black flag I fly.
Then play a sanctimoninious part,
With a pirate head, and a pirate heart.

Away to the cheating world go you,
Where pirates all are well to do.
For I'll be true to the song I sing,
And live and die...

A PIRATE KING

Honest opinions needed

Has anyone on my flist read Blaylock's Langdon St. Ives stories? Are they worth picking up?

Ugh

And here I thought I'd dodged the "con crud" bullet....

4π-Con

I'm not even close to coherent enough to do a con review, but I would like to thank the Pi-Con staff, my fellow panelists, the Hot Chi With Books, and the con suite crew for a most enjoyable time.

Special accolades to [livejournal.com profile] hughcasey, who will be next years Guest of Awesome.

In closing, a zombie haiku:

I used to be dead.
Now, I am a lumbering corpse
Give me your brains.  Braaains!

Thunderous Tuesday

Bleah...

First, it was hot & humid, so I opened all the windows & had the fan going.

Then, I must have annoyed Zeus somehow, because my town was the only spot in RI to get thunderstorms. So the windows get closed.

Then the power goes out, so I lose the fan, too. Note that at no time did the heat actually break.

Finally, shortly before midnight, power returns. I open the windows, flip on the fan, and collapse back into bed.

Shortly thereafter, the burglar alarm resets....

And to top it all off, a stray dog (at least, I hope it was a dog) chose the door to my office building to perform his morning ablutions...

Is it Wednesday yet?

Ave, Josephus!

So, I took my sister to see GI JOE today. And as usual, some thoughts:

Spoilers within, of course... )

All in all, a decent popcorn flick.
