Today is the last day of voting for LJ Idol (the poll is here). Feeling more nervous about that than usual.
Other things I should have done last week but did not: mammogram (ugh), buying new tennis shoes, getting toys ready to sell on Craigslist, and getting the outside Xmas lights up. It's hard to want to dive into that last one, because it takes about half a day (we put up a lot of lights). We may get a break in the rain next weekend, though. Right now, it's a sogfest through Friday. We badly need the rain, so that part's good, but the rest is a pain.
I finished The Spark And The Drive, which I was afraid would turn into a romance at some point... but fortunately never did. Just general fiction. Got kind of frustrated with the characters (ALL of them) at various times, but sometimes that's a sign that they're very human. \o?
I've been reading a lot of Neal Shusterman. I finished Unwholly and Unsouled, and finally got Unwind (the first in the series) back so I could refresh my memory on how the whole thing started. I have Speeding Bullet by my bed, and another book waiting. Plus, I put a hold on Tesla's Attic, which might be children's fiction instead of YA, but who cares? Tesla! And Shusterman! There is no bad in that combination. :D
I read an article from Wired yesterday, on women in technology, India vs. the U.S., that made some good points. Ironically, when I went to wired.com to look for it, I stumbled across a blurb for "National GeekDad Day" (on Father's Day, no less), with no mention of Geek Moms... and comments for that web article are disabled. *sigh*
All right, back to work. At my tech job. Where I am a firmware programmer. \o?
