I am very "catlike" as a person, so this isn't really a surprise. :D The ocelot's a little fancier than I would have expected (Hi, I'm wearing jeans and a t-shirt to work like I do every day-- whoo-hoo!).
So where, I wonder, are the Badger people? The Serpents? The Wolverines? Mmmmmm-- Hugh Jackman.
I just finished Book One in the "Golden Compass" series, and (unpopular opinion alert!) I have mixed feelings about it. I was pretty compelling, pulling me through the story fairly well. But the AU takes on our own world are the kind of thing which sometimes hack me off. I'm not a big AU fan, in general-- sometimes it works for me, but mostly not. The basic premise would work better for me if it were not set in our world-- along with most of the story, actually. Why not make a new planet? The quoting of the Garden of Eden story but mangling it with the AU take of this story-- that bugs. If you remember that I'm not at all religious, you'll really know how much that bugs!
Just began a new Patricia McKillip book at the gym today, and wanted to keep reading after my elliptical time was up (but no-- off to the hated weight room). There are NO new Men's Health mags at the gym since about November-- that's my second favorite after the glorious trash-fest that is People magazine.
Also, I may or may not have snapped the head off of the flexible shower wand in the women's locker room at work. *hums innocently* It's been loose and leaky for awhile, and apparently it was joined by wimpy welded plastic. Well, I guess the repair folks will seriously understand that it needs work now, huh?
Hey, it's SPN day! Did anyone notice except me? :P
