Undead Blog Sighted on LiveJournal

Born in 2004, the blog of squidminion lived on LiveJournal until its untimely end. A victim of corporate policy and familial conflict, it passed away (to InsaneJournal) and was pronounced dead in August of 2007.

Hours ago, however, semi-credible witness reported seeing signs of activity. Early hopes that the blog was still alive, though, soon turned to horror. Instead of fresh, healthy posts, the blog was a shambling mockery of its former self. Animated by strange forces, its posts seemed to be missives from beyond.

It is yet unclear if the semi-risen blog poses a risk to public health. Readers are advised to be wary, particularly of its links which may lead back to the dreamlike realm that now supplies its motive energies.

M_ ordered some t-shirts for me. Actually, she ordered me one t-shirt in four different sizes because it's hard to figure out the difference between regular, big, tall, and big & tall. When I looked at the label on the bag, it clearly said "DARK CHAHEA".

M_ claims that's an abbreviation for the color dark charcoal heather, but I think she just fears the terrible evil majesty of the Dark Chahea.

While I wait for iOS 7 to install itself all over M_'s phone, I'll take a break to write some more book reviews. Why don't I skip this and write something in the actual blog? Good question.

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Search, Part 3Collapse )

Officially, I never stopped trying to write mini-reviews of the books I read. I'm not sure anyone except maybe [personal profile] ruthling is reading them, but it helps me keep track. I kind of took a break after I finished writing up 2013, though, and that break's been going on for... well, you know.

So, here's a stab at least. We'll see if I remember enough to make this pointful.

An Officer's DutyCollapse )
The Last DarkCollapse )
Happy Hour in HellCollapse )
Locke & KeyCollapse )

This brings my 2014 total to nine. You can probably guess there are just a few more coming.

I have, unwisely, allowed [personal profile] ruthling to tempt me into installing the new iPhone version of Ingress. Like I have the time or lifestyle for this sort of thing.

So, I've only had brief naps for the past 2-3 days so I could work and work and work. I've been goofing off since I got home this evening because I know I'm getting to a point where trying to design or code would be a mistake. I ought to get my ass to bed. If I'm too dumb to go to bed, I ought to try to do some work. So let's review books!

Mountain EchoesCollapse )
Avatar: The Search, parts 1 & 2Collapse )
LibriomancerCollapse )
Perilous ShieldCollapse )
Three Parts DeadCollapse )
Agatha Heterodyne and the Siege of MechanicsburgCollapse )

This brings my total for 2013 up to sixty-nine.
