an update on me
Work: Things are settling out, and I'm excited about my new role, though it seems a technical architect slash implementer slash project chickie's job is [drum roll please] going to meetings! And, while I won't have any direct reports, I will be queen of the dotted line reports and be pulling in people from all over to get things done.

Weekend: Supah! I relaxed, read, got a library card (after a year of living here, lazy me), got some books, anchored my bookcase to the wall, and emptied most of my books into it.

Wtonight (work with me here on my w theme): vacuuming, laundry, and Skee-ball with gopherbomb! I lurve me some skee-ball, though I cannot believe that a) Pat didn't know what Dave & Busters was (!!) and b) that S didn't even know what skee-ball was (!!!!!).

Random note: I seem to have been labeled a tart. Blueberry, even.

xoxo!

Current Mood: giggly giggly

SKEE-BALL! Ooh.

The funny thing about getting a library card is that they don't make it EASY. You have to have all these forms of identification to prove where you live and who you are. So you actually do have to live in an area for a little while to get a card. Now one quick way around the standard "we want two pieces of mail and your first born child" is to go register to vote. To register to vote they don't usually ask for utility bills as the two mail forms...

Anyway it's early. I still haven't had much caffeine. But the library card thing I don't really understand. Don't they WANT people to read? If they are afraid that people will check out books and never return them...well, that happens anyway.

What are you currently reading?

Well, I just brought my last gas bill and all was okay :)

I still need to change my registration to vote, and I'll do that when I get my license changed tomorrow.

I'm currently reading: Pasquale's Angel, by Paul J. McAuley. It's pretty decent, for an 'oh that cover looks neat, and the jacket lining reads interesting' library pickup.

Re:

What is a really really good book that you read in the last year or so? I'm always looking for suggestions on what to read. I'll read almost anything.

Ooh, I have two!

or three, even.

I love Sharon Shinn's Samaria trilogy: Archangel, Jovah's Angel, and The Alleluia Files.

Also, loved this one: The Blind Assassin

There's another one I want to recommend, but I can't remember any of the titles!

And dangit, I'm buying these RIGHT NOW off of Amazon, because I love them and I keep forgetting the names:

The Black Jewels trilogy by anne bishop: Queen of the Darkness, Heir to the Shadows, and Daughter of the Blood
