The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors

So much random I had to make a second post...

First, I saw someone wearing this shirt at Yosemite, and I might actually have to buy one. Click the close-up of the text. Nerd humor rulz!

Second, a friend sent me a video link that's too cute not to share: Kitty playing with an iPad.

Last night, I dreamed that I persuaded clex_monkie89 to write a story about her (our?) adventures on Survivor. She did, but was disappointed by the turnout at the book-signing in her apartment. Later, my "character" was played by Catharine Keener, and an evil caroussel appeared with Trip and Malcom from Star Trek: Enterprise trapped on it. Yes, the whole dream was a giant WTF. Most of them are. o_O

I'm trying to finish up some reading (like, ANY of the books I'm currently working on). I'm one gym session away from completing How To Paint A Dead Man, a few chapters from the conclusion of Overlook (a Michael Connelly mystery novel, featuring Harry Bosch), and woefully far from the end of The Four Corners Of The Sky. With that last one, the author described it as a "romance" in his foreword, but I'm hoping he didn't mean the romance genre. No signs of it so far. I was hoping the main character would be a black, female pilot. One out of two isn't bad, but still.

I HAVE finished Everlost and Everwild by Neal Shusterman, and am looking forward to the final novel. The author likes inversion in his fantasy writing- I also read Downsiders, which involves an entire society below the surface of New York City made of up of people who have some interesting notions about the Topside and what goes on there (the sun will burn the skin off your body!) Previously, I'd read two comedies by him that are equal parts pathos: The Schwa Was Here and Antsy Does Time. I liked them so much that I reviewed them for, because I wasn't sure other people would find their way to them. Speaking of which, I have GOT to finish off Gator A-Go-Go and review that, because it was a VINEs book.

So many books, so little time! And that's before the whole fanfic territory that I'm so behind on...
