I'd make a "hard wire pulling" joke towards NeoTifa, but I recently learned that such jokes can have bad results.


Oh, good stuff. Now all the jocks and the brogrammers can get their panties in a wad about how they're being picked on. How nice for them.

The Easter Bunny has completely slacked off this year. Just starting my shopping one week before the holiday. Way to be on top of things, mom!

I didn't make it to the laundry mat before the blizzard started. :( Now I'll have to wear dirty pants to work. Oh well, they're already mud stained. Also, who wants to donate to the NeoTifa-is-a-poor-bitch-and-needs-new-Redwings charity?

Modi - would you prefer the One Direction themed basket or the Big Time Rush themed basket? Both include blanket, books, book lights, hair barrettes, earrings, a plush bunny, and a shitload of chocolate.

P.S. Baskets come in your choice of pixie dust pink with daisy print or Barney purple, also with daisy print.

P.P.S. Easter grass is not included because Easter grass is evil.

I don't know who 'one direction' is, but I do watch enough Nick to know 'Big Time Rush'. Preferably I would take a nice iCarly basket.

Today, I am reading 'A Memory of Light' by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.

The final book in the Wheel of Time series, which I have been waiting around 13 years for.

Tomorrow, I'll be staring at my bookshelves wondering what to read next.

If you want something in a similar vein, Fritz Leiber's stories in the Lankhmar universe - the doings of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser - are excellent stuff. There are about four collections if I remember right, and they're not very long, but they'll tide you over. Also, there were some great stories in the Thieves' World books.

If you want something that goes in a different direction, Cory Doctorow's Little Brother is worth a look. It's aimed at the YA audience, but it's actually quite enjoyable even if you're a little ways removed from that market.

Thanks for the advice there Jon. There are actually a couple of fantasy books I'm after at the moment, which I'll probably end up buying.

Magician's End by Raymond E. Feist - His writing has gone downhill over the years, but I'd still like to read the final part of his Riftwar novels.

Traitor Queen by Trudi Canavan - I've only recently started getting into her books, but I think she is a good author.

The Lies of Locke Lamora - I've forgotten what the author is called , but I recently picked up the sequel to this without realising it was a sequel, and it was really good (for that matter, I'm only half sure that this is the title of the first book).

Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson - I read Sanderson's first trilogy, the Mistborn series, after he started writing the finale for the Wheel of Time (due to Robert Jordan's untimely death in 2007), then went looking for the prequels. The characters are that well developed at the beginning of the book that I wanted to read about their previous adventures. Imagine my surprise when this excellent series of books turned out to be the first series he ever wrote. Alloy of Law is, for all intents and purposes, book 4 of the Mistborn series.

Fun stuff. I've gotten out of touch with the current fantasy scene, good to know there's stuff out there.
Another good one I've read recently was K. J. Parker's Engineer Trilogy. Not fantasy as such, there's no supernatural happenings, but it's set in an invented world (very much like, oh, Europe, but without language barriers and much smaller) with a roughly medieval level of technology. Great fun.
