Conan the Librarian is no longer gunning for me.

Overdue fines are paid. I can go back to my childhood dream of reading the entire library now.

Why I don't read Heinlein
dinpik
Because apparently he's supposed to be the touchstone of SF fandom or something.

The same reason I don't read Harlan Ellison: he bores me.

"We enter a perilous country when we decide that because we mean well, or because we are largely good, that we are thus allowed to do something we know is wrong." -- Caradenus Primrose, The War of the Flowers

I can't read Poul Anderson

That's not quite true -- I managed to read one book of his, The Merman's Children. But it took days because it was so boring. Mind-numbingly so.

I should like his stuff. He used Norse mythology in a lot of his work. His books are plodding, though: "This happens, and then this happens, and then this happens." His characters are cardboard-stiff.

Not going to waste anymore money on him, not even at the buck-a-book shop.

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.” -- Will Rogers.

Got a call from my sister Debbie a little bit ago. She had to have her dog Roxy put down this morning; she had a stroke over the weekend.

This is the deal when a pet comes into my life; I will do the best I can for them and I know the day will come when they leave me behind. It is not unfair or cruel, it’s the deal.

From a friend's post on Journalfen about losing two of her dogs in the same day.

I spent the last two weeks driving to my sister Debbie's to watch fourteen-year-old Roxy, her beagle/husky mix, because Debbie was across the state at our older sister's and her husband was working OT.

There will come a time when they won't need me to do this anymore. I hope that time doesn't come soon.

I dog-sat for my sister yesterday,and watched the couple episodes of Game of Thrones season 3 that I missed while marathoning it at the nephew's on Thursday. And so, a question for those of you have had read the books or seen the HBO series:

Do you think Tywin knew about Jaime and Cersei's incest?

Nearly six months since I posted here. Life's been either boring or a little too intersting.

And.. sigh. If you were in Tower Mountain and can email me any of your stuff again, I'd appreciate it. (Margaret, your emails are safely in a Gmail folder!) My operating system crapped out again a couple weeks ago. I'm rebuilding my files of every damn thing. >.
