Quote of the day:

"I'm tired of the conservatives in this country inflicting their beliefs on everyone else."

Yeah. Cause you know, how dare we vote (or legislate) according to what we believe in.

Apparently we should be asking Howard Dean and the Democrats what our priorities and convictions should be, to make sure we aren't stepping on anyone's toes.

I'm sorry, but that is one of the stupider things I've read lately.

The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold

Have a mentioned how much I love this book? The story - it's fantasy, if you couldn't tell - is dark enough, with betrayal and torture and murder and murder/suicide spells and "death demons" and so on, but something about the writing is just so kind of warm and comfortable. And the main character... he's not a stud, he's definitely not cut out of the same cloth as Jack or Shep, say, but he's just awesome and squishy and brave and tragic but not tragic in the dull, crappy way; he's funny, too. And there's UST!

*happy sigh*

Randomness

I was going to put this in the previous post, but my love for this book is currently so great that it deserved its own entry.

Some other things:

- Shanks will be in 16 of 20 episodes next season, and the writers are apparently considering some kind of "controversial" Daniel arc. Hey, want to be really controversial? Put him in 0 of 20 episodes! Mwahaha! (via Gateworld)

- I didn't watch ER tonight because it looked boring in the commercials, and I wanted to take a bubble bath. Did I miss anything exciting/important, specifically in the Abby/Luka arc? *loves them*

- No tennis fic yet, folks.

- In related news, I'm teaching my first lesson tomorrow! It's on temperature and using thermometers. My university supervisor is going to be there, too. I'm not so much nervous about the actual teaching (the last three school days I've taught calendar and I think that's given me something of a handle on how to manage these guys in whole group, although seeing how they do in pairs should be interesting) as dreading the critique afterwards. I hate critique. It's really only peer pressure that even leads me to get most of my stuff beta-read ;) On the upside, once it's over it's over, and then I can come home and relax and watch SciFi Friday, yay!
