    The Or game

    This is another simple little game designed to stimulate a little thoughtful activity. I'll go first by stating two items; _____ or _____. The next person chooses this or that (explanation optional) and then makes up the next question. Simple! I'll go first: Iambic pentameter or haiku?

    So what's everybody reading?

    My new favorite author is John Scalzi. In the last month I read his 'Old Man's War' trilogy, 'Agent To The Stars', and the howlingly entertaining 'Redshirts'. Today I just picked up his 'Your Hatemail Will Be Graded', which is a book of his blog posts - yes, an actual, published, book converted from a forest, not an e-book. You?

    A weary traveler returns

    Zool listens to Tzimfemme, and smiles. "Free. At last, " the painting thinks wistfully, his face frozen in it's portraitured pose, "She has verbalized the difference between us. That alone makes the pain of our near-meeting worthwhile - to see. Someone. Truly. Free. It's well worth it just to see what that looks like."

    For Zool

    Thanks guys. I'd love to RP a reply, but unfortunately my head just isn't in that space right now - yes, partly because of birthday activities, but also a lot has been going on in my life lately that I just have to attend to. *Sigh* Unfortunately, it's the same old story of the Pen summertime blues. ...but thanks again!

    So what's everybody reading?

    Just finished Alastair Reynolds 2000 classic 'Revelation Space'. Great Sci-fi read! Just starting Dan Simmons' 'The Fall of Hyperion', the sequel to 'Hyperion', which I much enjoyed. If the sequel is half as good as the original, it will be very good. [edit] BTW, your review of 'Shifted' was helpful to me Law.

    Master P - so good to see you! Hope you can stop by more. Sorry to hear you have been in a funk Brighid. I have been running around so much I haven't had much time, I'm afraid, but hopefully the post-holiday rush will abate soon.

    Integrity, or course - and if you doubt that, ask anyone about my reputation. Chicken or the egg?

    What music are you currently listening to?

    Did you know Jimi Hendrix made a Christmas record? I bought this little vinyl record some time ago, but hadn't heard it. Awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8ICJC2ngEo
