Two things that made me quite happy yesterday:
1. Traffic stopped both ways on a fairly busy street so someone could rescue a turtle crossing the road. Also, public service announcement: If you do ever rescue a 'turtle', please do not help him by tossing him, however gently into the nearest body of water. Said 'turtle', may, in fact, be a tortoise, in which case he cannot swim, and you will have, unfortunately, killed him. Since most people (including me), cannot tell the difference, please play on the safe side and move him to a nice, safe, grassy area, headed away from the road, and let him do the rest.
2. Snoodity! My snood, which I won from Alana in her giveaway came in. It is currently seated, cutely, upon my head. Very adorable.
An open letter to Mr. Jim Butcher:
Dear Mr. Butcher,
The way I see it, there are two choices - either cease being so awesome, immediately, so that I can get some sleep, or write faster. I am almost finished with Codex Alera, except, of course, for First Lord's Fury, which is not out yet, bugger it all, and then I get to reread the Dresden Files, so I can get to Turn Coat. That's a *lot* of books, and very little sleep for me! And I just want more! So, you know, the only responsible thing is for you to write faster, so I can do all my damage at once! And not have the horrible delay and withdrawals when I finish all your books and have nothing left to read!
Also, it is insane and mindbending to look at the numbers, and realize that you, to be healthy, need to lose an entire person. A *whole* other person. I am carrying around two of me. *brain breaks into little pieces*
