Am I allowed to be vaguely disturbed that 'spontaneous human combustion' appears on the list when the word of the day is Bandoliers? o_O;
if you insist *g*

nice doggie!
Actually, she is a kitty (lion-ish thing) from a long defunct comic strip that was a vague rip-off of My Little Ponies. ... As Opposed to Shiny Happy Sparkle Ponies, which is 100% parody of everything 80's. ^_~ *grin*
How's Darcy working out for you?
I'm sorry; do you think, between the full time job, the other full time job, the deadlines and the conventions, that I've made any significant progress on reading?

You must be issued more hours in your day than I get.
Heh. Actually, I take a bus to my job, so I don't have anything else to do at that time but read.
*g* busses are good that way.
I don't see the IROSF review. The June issue is still up for me. :(
It's in the April issue.
Doh! Thanks!!!
I think I fixed the link.

Semagic hates me lately.

That was wonderful!
My niece's name is Rhiannon. You're not my niece, are you? [Pauses, to check chibicharibdys's profile & LJ] Nope, don't believe so. Fine name, though...
It's a most excellent name.

And Rhiannon is great jazz singer. She used to be the front woman for a band called Alive!
Holy crap, that Rosenbaum story was effing brilliant.
Ben is very very very good at what he do. *g* Also, a nice boy.





Re: awww...

You're welcome.

Also, I love that story a lot. *g*
You are such a stud, eBear.

While still so cute and frisky.

You are just so damned complex.

shyucks, ma'am.
Yike, I been linked!

Had I thought such a thing would ever happen, I would have provided a permalink for each entry! Maybe I'll do that while I'm hiding from the horrible terrible sun all weekend. In the meantime, this should do.

And yes, I liked both books quite a lot. Now I am waiting for james_nicoll to finish reading Carnival so it can be sold in stores already!
We all have to wait for James. *g*

And hey, I link whatever Google Blogsearch gives me. *g*
