Happy Twelfth Night

Today is the 12th Day of Christmas, tomorrow Epiphany. I wonder how it was our celebrations of Christmas changed so much that Christmas Day is pretty much the end of the season, instead of tomorrow. (Of course, starting it in September pretty well kills it for everyone by the time it finally rolls around, and everyone can't wait to get things taken down and put away.) Anyway, in keeping with 12th Night, I cracked open my new bottle of Italian Sparkling Asti (Casa Sant'Orsola, just as good as my old favorite Mondoro, which I can't find in stores anymore), and found these lovely cocoa-roasted almonds at Sprouts. Nom.

Day 126, moar kittehs in boxes. Kitteh joy!
Set laser eyes for stun:

Stupid Kindle commercials. I wants. I wants bad.

Or even something like it (iPad?)... so I can read Web Comics somewhere where there is not my computer.

Bad night's sleep. My poor wife was very sick, although we know not why. I ate all the same things she did. It's better today, but she won't eat any more of the chicken curry I made last night (which I had for dinner tonight, as well).

ANYWAY. Brain is too tired to continue work on revised Chapter One. So I'm re-reading Gunnerkrigg Court chapters, just to watch the drawing style change over time.

And then there will be sleep. Oh, yes.

Bravo for laser eyes! And I wish people would leave their Christmas lights up year round, because I think they're cheerful and make the nights better.

PS - I hope Barb is A-OK now.

He loves that box. We are sad that eventually it MUST go away, but we didn't even break it down when all the other boxes went out...

I find them very cheerful, too, but I have to admit I worry about the people who have them up (and lit) in February...

I think she is. She was better last night, but didn't push it. She also had PB&J on an English muffin!

I read that as, "Brian is too tired to continue work on revised Chapter One." And, for some reason, I didn't find that too weird. There's another lj friend of mine who has a name for her writer side (Steve).

I recommend the Pandigital Novel for cheap, color screen reading. I believe you can get the latest one through Best Buy for something like $150, which includes the service warranty. The Novel works with Barnes and Noble.com and you can download any of their NookBooks, magazines, etc., plus any pdf files you want. It's the one I have, and I LOVE IT SO FREAKING MUCH I'D MARRY IT IF IT WEREN'T ILLEGAL IN TEXAS. *ahem* Anyway, my godfather remarked that he might buy one for its lightweight portability, since his iPad is heavy and cumbersome.

Laser eyes! Scary kitty is scary.

Squee, I'll have to look up the Pandigital. (And I read that as "Pandorica" originally, so you're not the only one -- and thought nothing of it, as well.)

It'll have to wait until I pay off some Christmas bills, though!

I forgot to mention that it has enough storage that you can save music onto it and have it play while reading. I've bought one of those "99 songs for $5" albums on Amazon and put it on there so I can have something to block out sound while reading at the clinics.

Oh, that's awesome. I definitely have to look at this one.

hope she's feeling better now

yay kitty in a box

i got a request to fill an empty fandom stocking and Gunnerkrigg Court was one of the fandoms. what is that, any good?

Gunnerkrigg Court is the most awesome, mind-sucking, amazing web comic I've ever read. I adore his designs, his storyline, his humor, his darkness, basically everything about it. How a Brit came up with such an amazing design for the god Coyote I'll never know, but I'd spend money I don't have if he ever offers Coyote art for sale. It took me less than a week to read all the archives the first time, back in November, I think, and I'm already reading it again.

I think the only complaint I have is the story is moving along so slowly from the current point, but that's largely because, as of course a web comic which is updated three pages a week, it DOES take a while (and the author doesn't make a living from it, so he has a day job, too)...

oh this looks very cool. I will have to read it...at work (after seeing my last verizon bill trying hard not to go over)

I hope Barb feels better soon.

I'm tired and achy. No reason why. Just am.

Kittehs in boxes for teh win!
Jan. 7th, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
Seems better now. Still won't eat any of the leftovers! :-)

My alarm got turned off and I slept until 6 o'clock (I usually leave between 6:10 and 6:15). I had to hurry hurry hurry.

But I made it...
