~~My post on Bujold’s A Civil Campaign is up over at Readers Gab. It took forever to write. You may not have noticed, but I’m having a hard time writing about my reading lately. Which matches up to the epic reading slump I’m in.
~~Milk is the best movie I’ve seen in a while. Sean Penn sometimes is too much for me, but he just nailed this role and he deserves an Emmy, a Golden Globe, an Oscar, an All Time Best Ever Forever and Ever award. My only knock on the film was the bit with Jack (played by Diego Luna); what was the point? He could’ve been edited out of the film entirely without harming the storyline, which says to me that he should’ve been.
~~Yay for flannel sheets.
~~The Daily Coyote was interesting, but not really what I expected. What did I expect? More photos, less narrative. The stuff about Charlie was interesting, but some of the pop psychology and personal philosophy of the author was a little too much. And the judgmental advice given at some points struck me as patronizing and vaguely offensive.
And now I’m off to the post office and to do the last of my holiday shopping. Maybe I’ll even bake some cookies to take to work.
