Finished Joyland in two days. I liked that it wasn’t normal Stephen King, and I still liked how he managed to flip the world upside down. I wasn’t expecting the killer to be who he was, and for the first time in a long time, King actually wrote an ending that didn’t suck. I look forward to his next novel. :)
I still need to pick up Adam Christopher’s Age of Atomic, which will be done sometime next week, Im sure.
Meanwhile, I am now a level 15 Gnome Rogue with pink hair in WoW. My nerdrage knows no bounds.
"i will remember your small room, the feel of you, the light in the window, your records, your books, our morning coffee, our noons, our nights, our bodies spilled together, sleeping, the tiny flowing currents, immediate and forever. your leg, my leg, your arm, my arm, your smile and the warmth of you who made me laugh again."
"When you’re twenty-one, life is a road map. It’s only when you get to be twenty-five or so that you begin to suspect you’ve been looking at the map upside down, and not until you’re forty are you entirely sure. By the time you’re sixty, take it from me, you’re fucking lost."
Having a fan girl moment over here. I emailed Sam Kean, told him I considered him to be one of my favorite non fiction writers, and asked him if he had a new book in the works.
He mailed me back, stating he does indeed have a new book he’s working on, and it’s on the history of neuroscience. I am squeeing so hard over here! Its like he knows me personally or something. His two other books rocked my socks off, this next book will blow my mind, Im sure.
In other news, Waterjabbers has me playing WoW now. Im a level three Gnome Rogue, named MizzStabbers. :D He bribed me with Lewis Black tickets, how can I say no to that?!?
Fathers Day is tomorrow. This is going to be interesting, because, well, my dad died little under a month ago. Its still a little strange, I called him the other day, and it pissed me off that he didn’t answer. It was a stupid question I had, but still. He always answered my stupid questions.
Waterjabbers asked if I wanted to re-acquaint myself with my biological father. I politely declined. Ugh.
