I'm still here. I've just had very little to say that would interest anyone, that's all. Work's been (surprisingly) keeping me busy, at least. Not terribly exciting stuff, but stuff nonetheless. And I went to Brighton to play some bridge, and didn't do terribly well. I also got a mild dose of sunburn, but it was worth it to swim in the sea for a bit.

Oh, and at some point I guess I should review Metal Swarm, before I forget all about it. I've almost finished The Dreaming Void now as well. By which point I'll have run out of books to read, though I did come across one in Borders the other day I might pick up (it's about superheroes, can't remember the title or the author off the top of my head but I read the first few paragraphs and was interested enough to think I might want to give it a go).

Talking of which, it's Wednesday, so Heroes is on! Yay! Though tomorrow night, it's the last House for a few months. Boo!

I now have Number 962/1000 of this.

I'll also be picking up a copy that I'll actually be reading at the weekend. The above is admittedly out of the shrink-wrap: I had to check inside the cover for (a) the signature (it's there, it's not what I'd call legible, but I'm inclined to believe it's his...), and (b) the number. Naturally taking it out of the wrap and opening the cover has probably already diminished the value. At least it's a genuine first edition, first print run!

Yeah, like, we had that, once? Maybe a couple of months back. Ah well, can't complain. Whaddaya mean, I just did?

Meantime, my usual lunchtime trawl of IMDB has discovered a couple of funny links:
Optimus Prime receives a letter from his insurance agent
Top 6 reasons why Harry Potter isn't for kids

Doing the email rounds this morning was this (only for football fans, I guess):
Sheffield Utd Relegation Saga the the tune of Downfall )

I've also discovered that categorizing galaxies is a great thing to do when you've only got one hand free (due to the other one supporting a baby sitting on your knee).

There's not much else to add, other than that I'm about 2/3 of the way through Black Man and I've decided I may well post a review of it (and anything else I read in the future). These reviews may well get shunted to my long-dormant [livejournal.com profile] marrax journal, which was always set up with literary purposes in mind, but never used.

Oh yeah, and Aliza's starting to eat "proper" food. By this, I mean we shove a small spoonful of mashed-up sweet potato into her mouth, and hopefully she swallows it. When she does, she typically finds it highly amusing - I've no idea why.

This poll is hardly original, but a good idea is always worth ripping off at least once, so here goes....

A quick trip to Border's at lunch time and I came away with Black Man (Morgan) and The Prefect (Reynolds). Now that I've just finished the extremely short The Overlook (Michael Connelly, the latest Harry Bosch novel, based on a newspaper serialization, hence its brevity), I guess I ought to pick out what to read next. Or maybe I should leave it up to my dedicated army of reader(s).

[Poll #1002650]

Get to it people, and make my decisions for me!
