alone on a swing

(no subject)

Just finished reading a really cool book by Eric Flint titled "1632" about time travel and war and stuff. Good story.

Mum took me out to dinner and forced me to eat squid. Whole squid. Yes, they were babies so they weren't that big... but they had TENTACLES, and purple bumps, and TENTACLES, and funny mouths, and TENTACLES!! They were fried, too. Gagh...!

But I got chocolate mousse for dessert, so all it right with the world. Mmmmm, chocolate...

I reviewed "An Exchange of Hostages" by Susan R. Matthews for because it was such a cool book.

Comics I bought this week: Green Arrow #7, JLA #57, Top 10 #12, Tomorrow Stories #8 and #11.

I went and saw "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" today with my family. I was the only one impressed, although my mum thought it was at least nominally funny. I thought it was very fucking funny (for a "dick and fart joke" movie). Hmm, time to watch "Mallrats" again. I don't care what Kevin Smith and everyone else says, "Mallrats" is a really fun movie!

Three day weekend, yay!
