February 18, 2012 Progress Notes:

On Roadstead Farm

Words today: 300.
Words total: 16,750.
Reason for stopping: I must head to Ossington to catch a DJ set, to see if they would be right to DJ the book launch.

Darling du Jour: The hens rustled in their straw, drowsing. A white wing fluttered, sharp. Behind it, a filthy, searching eye: You're not Marthe.
Words Hallie Won't Admit to Knowing: void.
Mean Things: Even the hens are mouthing off.

Research Roundup: N/A
Books in progress: Dani Couture, Algoma.


Today we hit the inevitable point where I need to draw a map of this farm, because the buildings are all floating in some non-relational fold of space-time, and it has ceased to make any sense.

[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 5:50 pm: I think this draft has hit Map Time. I can't keep straight where I put half the buildings on this farm.

[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:12 pm: Okay, I think I might have bent space and time here. Farm, you make no geographical sense.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:14 pm: Noneuclidian agronomy?
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:15 pm: The furrows are wrong.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:16 pm: The farm dog is a tindalos.
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb 6:17 pm: If even the furrows are wrong, what lives in the well?
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:18 pm: Now someone needs to write Cold Comfort Lovecraft Farm.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:21 pm: The Farmshare Out of Space.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:23 pm: In the Compost Heap of Madness.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:26 pm: Alternately: The King in Flannel.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:26 pm: The Barn Cats of Ulthar.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange 6:27 pm: The Collards Out of Space.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:28 pm: Corn of Man and Woman (okay, not mythos...)
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:28 pm: Ooh, ooh! The Lurker at the Thresher.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange 6:29 pm: Heeee
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb 6:29 pm: heeeee
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:29 pm: Hah!
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet 6:30 pm: The Greens-Quest of Unknown Kadath.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:31 pm: The Cattle-Call of Cthulhu.
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb 6:32 pm: So the lowing of squamous cattle drives men and and women insane?
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 6:32 pm: That is not dead which can eternal lie fallow.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise 6:32 pm: I see I didn't really miss anything.

Moral: You can make a Lovecraft joke about anything. Also, I need to figure out my map.
leahbobet: (bat signal)
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:46 pm): I think Steven is getting a little dragon-happy.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:46 pm): I feel like summoning a dragon should not be your answer to every situation.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:46 pm): heeee
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:46 pm): It so should.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:46 pm): "Catbox needs cleaning!" *dragon*
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb (9:46 pm): Really should.
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb (9:46 pm): "This person eyeballed me."
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb (9:46 pm): *dragon*
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (9:48 pm): "What's for dinner?"
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (9:48 pm): *dragon*
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:48 pm): Oh noes, dragon!
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (9:48 pm): That last one might not work.
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb (9:48 pm): *agrees with Leah entirely*
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (9:48 pm): Dragons would solve so many of my problems with people at work.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:48 pm): "It's cold and I don't want to go get milk." *dragon*
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:48 pm): He wiped out an entire mining town with the dragon.
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb (9:49 pm): The mining town looked at him funny
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:49 pm): Its catboxes were dirty.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:49 pm): It tried to arrest him on trumped up charges. Totally warranted use of dragon.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (9:49 pm): See, some people need killin'.
[livejournal.com profile] hawkwing_lb (9:50 pm): By dragon.

--

[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (9:52 pm): And let's be honest, Amanda. If you could summon dragons at will, you'd be doing it all the time.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:53 pm): This is true.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:53 pm): Traffic?
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:53 pm): Dragon.

--

[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (10:01 pm): But you start to lose plausible deniability when unsummoned dragons show up and burninate the countryside.
[livejournal.com profile] leahbobet (10:01 pm): Well, only if they know you're the guy with the dragons.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (10:02 pm): And if you're dragon-summoning properly... no witnesses.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (10:02 pm): If anyone was paying any attention they would have figured that part out.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (10:02 pm): Also, "Accused of summoning dragons?"
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (10:02 pm): Dragon.

...I'm pretty sure she was talking about Skyrim. But y'know, I'm not asking.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:05 pm: Maybe I'm old fashioned, but some of these things make me say "No, I will not be tolerant and accepting of your alternate lifestyle. You need psychiatric help."
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:05 pm: But then I worry I might wake up one day and find I've joined the Westboro Baptist Church.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:05 pm: (We have a neighbourhood in Ottawa called Westboro... I have never investigated what churches are present.)
[livejournal.com profile] beatriceeagle 10:07 pm: I think as long as you accept someone, you've got one up on the WBC.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:07 pm: heh
[livejournal.com profile] katallen 10:08 pm: I believe the WBC are moderately tolerant of each other.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:08 pm: There appears to be only a Unitarian Church in our Westboro.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia 10:08 pm: Isn't it standard assumption now that the WBC aren't bigots, they're trolls?
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:08 pm: And I don't think the Westboro Unitarian Church would be quite the same.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia 10:08 pm: Oh man, although now I want to start it.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:09 pm: "We hate everyone, except all the people we tolerate."
[livejournal.com profile] beatriceeagle 10:09 pm: I think that if you act like a bigot all the time, it doesn't much matter.
[livejournal.com profile] beatriceeagle 10:09 pm: Ha!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia 10:09 pm: You picket funerals with signs like "We accept your lifestyle and welcome your friendship."
[livejournal.com profile] beatriceeagle 10:09 pm: "We're sorry for your loss."
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:09 pm: "And those we accept."
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia 10:09 pm: "But other than that -- WATCH OUT!"
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia 10:09 pm: "Can we get you anything? Drink? Cookie?"


In other news that is not about shit-disturbing on the Internet, today's e-mail has brought both a copyedited manuscript and an ISBN for Above. I give back the CEM next week, but the ISBN I may keep.

The new issue of Ideomancer is up, with fiction from returning author Sandra Odell, Emily Skaftun, and Su-Yee Lin; book reviews aplenty; and three poems from and an interview with our first featured poet in a while, Mari Ness.

Also, Chilling Tales has hit its Canadian release date and is available for those of you in the Canadas (if you are in the Americas or the UKs, you have to wait longer. Sorry.) This is the anthology that "Stay" is in, alongside a lot of very, very, very good Canadian horror writers. We are launching it at the bookstore in two weeks' time.

Aside from that? It is cold, and I am terrifically busy, although most of it is good busy.

I am ready, I think, for winter to be done now.

Boo.

[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (12:14:07 AM): I should probably tidy up a bit if they're showing the apartment tomorrow.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (12:14:09 AM): Alas.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:15:22 AM): or mess it up more strategically.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (12:16:04 AM): I should leave a note in lipstick on the mirror that says DO NOT LIVE HERE.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:16:38 AM): Lipstick = not drippy enough.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (12:16:42 AM): heh
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (12:16:50 AM): just arrange to have the mirrors spin and the walls bleed.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:17:05 AM): (like my uterus)
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (12:17:29 AM): maybe the mirrors are the problem, there...
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:17:55 AM): Too many or not enough?
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (12:18:00 AM): Any at all?
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (12:18:06 AM): This is actually built on an ancient burial ground.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (12:18:09 AM): But it's a Baptist one.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (12:18:13 AM): I don't know if that's scary enough.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (12:18:35 AM): The ghosts would be very serious.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:19:07 AM): They would leave very polite notes.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:19:17 AM): and casseroles.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:19:47 AM): "Please consider living elsewhere."
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:20:03 AM): "PS 35 minutes at 350."
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (12:20:38 AM): in blood on the living room wall.

Whoops.

May. 5th, 2010 10:02 pm
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:54:21 PM): Nope. There is no fucking joy in Mudville.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:54:34 PM): If they'd named it IceCreamSodaVille they might have had a better shot.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:56:15 PM): mmm, ice cream soda.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:57:32 PM): My choice of metaphor may be indicating that I need a snack.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:57:41 PM): Also, the way I almost just typed "meatphor".
leahbobet: (bat signal)
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:30:51 PM): I feel a vague malaise.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:30:55 PM): A book may be in the birthing.
[livejournal.com profile] jmeadows (8:31:15 PM): Were you on the pill?
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:02:00 PM): I need to make a Mage character tonight.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:02:12 PM): I am being virtupus and not recycling a novel character.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:02:19 PM): Heh.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:02:27 PM): Virtupus is hard.

[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:09:37 PM): What kind of mage do I want to play?
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (9:09:47 PM): A grue mage.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:10:09 PM): Better yet, which fictional character of someone else's do I want to steal?
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:10:25 PM): A grue mage would be awesome.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:10:30 PM): You would just eat everything in the way.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:10:36 PM): *...is perhaps already a grue mage*
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:10:42 PM): First I would cast darkness.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:10:46 PM): Oh right, of course.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:10:46 PM): Then I would eat everything in it.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:09:14 PM): Dashiell Hammett has solved my plotting problem.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:09:17 PM): There is nothing he can't do.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (8:09:55 PM): He's like Chuck Norris
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (8:09:57 PM): Can he fix my scene?
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:10:01 PM): I'm sure he could.
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (8:10:14 PM): Can he finish my book while I work?
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:10:33 PM): (Dashiell Hammett's tears cure cancer, but he's written in omni objective so you never know if he's crying on the inside.)


I read The Maltese Falcon this week. I am not over the ways in which that book is completely fucking awesome and I hope to never be over it. And yes, I picked up The Thin Man this afternoon.

This has been not a book report, but a *glee*.
1) Place into Google the name of your favourite hockey team + "slash". No, I will not tell you in what context we actually did this. Let's say we were running a Rule 34 test.

2) Realize that all the results are about slashing penalties.

3) Read headlines.

4) Laugh your ass off.


Right now my favourites are: "Sharks slash dead-tired Canucks from all sides" (!) and: "The league is reviewing Dany Heatley's slash to see if it warrants a suspension."

Oh, I think it does. I think it does. :D
"The frown surfaces on my mouth before I can turn away."

Well, yes, Matthew. Where else would it surface, your ass?

*rewrites*

(Understand, this little beauty survived through five drafts.)
leahbobet: (bat signal)
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (8:13:04 PM): I need to figure out what Our Intrepid Heroes could find in the spooky ruined castle before they get attacked by birds.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:13:49 PM): A Rod of Lordly Might.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:15:25 PM): I just love the Rod of Lordly Might for being the most phallic magic item ever.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (8:15:44 PM): Jamie, you love it because you are the patriarchy.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:16:47 PM): I have this theory that it's not that kind of might.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:16:56 PM): That it's like the Rod of Lordly Maybe kind of might.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:17:53 PM): Whatever might it is, when you handle it properly it gets longer and it grows a pair of balls.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:17:57 PM): You tell me that's not phallic.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (8:18:38 PM): The patriarchy produces about 98.5% of all phallus love.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (8:18:51 PM): Everyone else thinks they're kind of...well, okay.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:18:55 PM): Well, we've got it to hand.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:19:11 PM): To be fair, the Century Worm is kinda nasty.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:19:20 PM): (And pairs well with the Tunnel Terror.)
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (8:20:16 PM): ...
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:20:22 PM): ...
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:20:32 PM): Century Worm: http://www.hordelings.com/cache/7296ddc53e4c12857ee65cf5ce56f166_0x-1x0.png
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (8:20:33 PM): Is there a Chalice of Unsubtle Symbolism, too?
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:20:34 PM): I do not want any Century Worm in my Tunnel Terror, thanks.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:21:16 PM): Tunnel Terror: http://www.iwozhere.com/SRD/images/88268_620_159.jpg
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:21:24 PM): Note the clitor-- er, tentacle near the top.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:22:01 PM): Amanda, I believe you're looking for the portable hole.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (8:22:08 PM): *prepares for bucketing*
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (8:22:24 PM): Most D&D guys are.


See?

Now go to your room.

[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (10:30:00 PM): to get *that* nasty taste out of your mouth, you can then safely click on this: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/22/dining/22mlist.html
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (10:30:25 PM): ooh, food.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (10:30:49 PM): Imagine what macguyver could do with those salads!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (10:31:09 PM): Molest them.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (10:31:17 PM): bad touch! bad touch!
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (10:31:50 PM): Why must people make the simple pleasures of my childhood seem awful?
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (10:32:22 PM): Because we don't get to go to the moon.
[livejournal.com profile] tanaise (10:32:34 PM): *wins all arguments ever*

(It's all your fault, you damn teenagers!)
(And that's Evil Sexy LeonardCon, not English as a second language.)

[livejournal.com profile] cristalia: Okay, so I've pared down my list of concerts to see before I die: NIN and that's next month, the Tragically Hip, and Tom Waits. But Tom'll be hard. He doesn't tour much.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala: He's the endboss.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:44:13 PM): Would Jamie Hyneman be as peculiarly attractive without access to C4? Discuss.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:44:19 PM): Hrm.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:44:25 PM): Does he still have power tools?
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:44:43 PM): He would still be hypercompentent without the C4, I think.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:44:45 PM): I'm gonna say yes.
[livejournal.com profile] stillsostrange (9:44:46 PM): so probably.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:44:50 PM): Then I too say yes.
[livejournal.com profile] kennethrapp (9:45:06 PM): yes.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:45:12 PM): He could still have 30,000 match heads.
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (9:45:21 PM): 0.0
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:45:25 PM): Even if he didn't, I'm sure he could get them.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:45:49 PM): Through some plan that requires only unflappability and a conspicuous moustache.
[livejournal.com profile] kennethrapp (9:45:59 PM): He could find a way to blow up a car using a cheese sandwich and a box of pencils.
[livejournal.com profile] kennethrapp (9:47:23 PM): And some secret Navy trick he doesn't discuss on camera.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:47:45 PM): "I love it when common materials are dangerous."
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:47:51 PM): Yep, Jamie would still be hot.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:47:53 PM): o.o
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:47:57 PM): yeah, that's hot.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:48:09 PM): He has 30,000 match heads!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (9:48:10 PM): (He's like Minnesotan Batman.)
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (9:48:14 PM): He's gonna blow some shit up!
[livejournal.com profile] katallen (11:54:23 PM): You know, I really wish people would stop using phrases like Darwin in action... Darwin really wasn't a particularly murderous person.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:54:30 PM): Action Darwin!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:54:36 PM): With kung fu monograph grip!
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (11:54:45 PM): with kung fu evolution gr--
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (11:54:49 PM): ahem
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:54:53 PM): hee.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (11:55:01 PM): Kung fu opposable thumb?
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:55:12 PM): WATCH Action Darwin give papers to naturalist societies!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:55:29 PM): SAIL Action Darwin with the HMS Beagle playset!
[livejournal.com profile] katallen (11:55:34 PM): WATCH Action Darwin take decades to make his mind up to publish!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:55:50 PM): GROOM Action Darwin's copious beard!
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (11:56:09 PM): Also available: Action Darwin's Galapagos Tortoise! Limited edition!
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:56:21 PM): (tortoise not to scale.)


[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (12:01:39 AM): (Action Darwin is not suitable for children under 5 or creationists.)
leahbobet: (milk?)
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:33:03 PM): (Iggy informs us that he's a punk rocker yes he is.)
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (5:35:37 PM): I thought Sheena was a punk rocker.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:36:14 PM): Iggy says him too.
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (5:36:27 PM): I can deal with that.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (5:37:11 PM): Iggy was there first.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (5:37:15 PM): Sheena's a copycat.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:37:18 PM): hee
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (5:37:27 PM): Besides, she has no subject position.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (5:37:32 PM): How do we know what she thinks?
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (5:37:50 PM): Joey told me.
[livejournal.com profile] stillnotbored (5:37:56 PM): I took his word.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (5:38:00 PM): See?
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (5:38:18 PM): We need Sheena's self-identification.

[Poll #1369536]
November 29, 2008 Progress Notes:

"Sugar"

Words today: 550.
Words total: 3500.
Reason for stopping: It's late. Again.

Books in progress: Vernor Vinge, A Fire Upon the Deep; Robert Graves, The Long Week-end.
The glamour: Worked a signing at the bookstore, promptly introvert-fitted, and came home.


Reading for The Enchanted Generation continues apace. I spent a good chunk of last night and some of tonight reading buckets of WWI poetry to pick out epigraphs for each section, and have, I think, more than I can actually use. There is a terrible embarrasment of riches there, which is just serving to further convince me that WWI was actually the Worst War Ever. In summary:

[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:56:07 PM): It is good for me that WWI veterans were all into poetry and not, say, peggle.
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (11:56:59 PM): heee
[livejournal.com profile] matociquala (11:57:10 PM): I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by popcap.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (11:58:33 PM): (bloated hysterical naked, wedging themselves in their office chairs at dawn, looking for an angry fix)

I may actually make a filter on which to babble about my TEG research stuff. If that happens and you care to hear me natter on upon said filter, speak now.

And tomorrow is the annual trip to the craft show, so I am crawling off to bed.
I have finally conceived of a cruise-style vacation that would actually appeal to me:

[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:40:49 PM): http://www.bookbarn.co.uk/
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:40:52 PM): *drool*
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:41:22 PM): ohhh.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:41:26 PM): There's a day's work there...
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:41:37 PM): Five. Million. Books.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:41:44 PM): They give you a sheet telling you where the categories are.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:44:26 PM): It's almost enough to tempt me to Somerset.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:44:40 PM): But I'm not sure even Krista would approve of flying to England to go to a bookstore.
[livejournal.com profile] kafkonia (5:44:48 PM): Although she just bought a half-dozen or so books today, so maybe she would.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:45:04 PM): I think there's nothing wrong with flying places for giant bookstores.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:45:11 PM): We could have a junket or something.
[livejournal.com profile] cristalia (5:45:16 PM): "Large Bookstores of the Mediterranean"

You would sit on the boat, eat nachos, and read your books. Until the next bookport.

Tell me that doesn't sound like the best thing ever.
[livejournal.com profile] jmeadows (7:34:59 PM): *destroys bad writing*
