My crush on Nathan Fillion grows ever larger. Between the hammy reading of Richard Castle’s book at Comic Con; the whole Mal Reynolds Firefly/Serenity thing and now this? I’m all *hearteyes*. Read this bit of information over at ALA’s website and then tell me that he isn’t a thousand times sexier for being a supporter of reading.
The first few chapters of Bujold’s new Vorkosigan novel, CryoBurn, are available at Baen. If the direct link doesn’t work, click on the Webscription link at the top of the main Baen page, which will take you to CryoBurn‘s ARC page, where there is a link to the chapters. I haven’t read them yet, but am somewhat intrigued by the book summary. Of course, it’ll be an autobuy for me just because it’s a new Miles book.
I ordered a case/cover for my refurbished Kindle (known as The Hairball, because for some reason my cat loves to lay on it, which leaves it covered in cat hair). Anyway, it’s been more than two weeks since I ordered it, so I poked the vendor. Oh, sorry, busy. Okay, but if it was going to be delayed, just say so; yes, you risk losing a sale, but with adjusted expectations, I would be much more inclined to leave positive feedback for you as a seller.
The Legg Mason Tennis Classic is on. Have tickets to the Round of 16 on Thursday. Don’t need to go to the semifinals and finals on Saturday and Sunday, right? Right?
Picnic at Mom’s yesterday. Her deviled eggs are the best ever. Something about the ratio of bacon bits to relish to seasoning just rocks. Nana’s Chocolate Cake, too, yum. And steamed crabs. Brought some home and picked them this evening. Crab cakes for dinner tomorrow 🙂
