So, that happened...  
The 49ers lost the Super Bowl, which caused much sadness at our house. Gads, the first half was just awful.

But did anyone watch the Puppy Bowl? I need to track down a vid of that-- there were rumors of hedgehogs as cheerleaders!

Also, before I forget again, this is a few weeks old but still fun. It came around on Twitter: Dealing With Mansplainers (as demonstrated by Hilary Clinton in gifs). It's all in the presentation.

Voting closes on another round of LJ Idol tomorrow, and my story is on the bubble thus far. Hoping to get at least far enough to write some good satire or crack, but you never know. :O

Bookwise, I'm reading The Age Of Miracles (interesting, but NOT convincing as the narrative of an 11-year-old) and The Cold Moon (one of the Lincoln Rhyme novels). I just finished The Dead Do Not Improve, which I should write a blurb for on Amazon. Really interesting prose style, very different from other writers. So much 20-nothing ennui, and not the pretentious kind but rather the workings of a marginally-employed would-be writer barely keeping ahead of urban destruction and the Recession.

So, did anyone celebrate Groundhog Day? Or not much, beyond hoping that winter is ending soon?

I heard we're going to have an early spring, but I don't recall hearing whether or not he saw his shadow...

I'm still reading. I won't be voting until after I get out of work :)

I think no shadow, which means early spring. Though my daughter pointed out that the results were the same last year... but wrong. :O

Takes forever to read all the entries, doesn't it? I was way ahead as of Friday, but the last 20-25 took the rest of the weekend.

Isn't that cute? I have no idea where the picture comes from, but it's just perfect. He looks so happy and at home in those other spiny balls. :)
