What are you currently reading?

Jingo By Terry Pratchett, concerned with war, politics and land issues, and is a Watch novel which are almost my favorite kind of Discworld novel (If not for the witches)

What did you recently finish reading?

Nightwatch by Terry Pratchett.  Another Watch novel and a Very good thing to read shortly before watching the new Les Mis movie since most of the action takes place in the framework of a street revolution.  (Takes several views of it, which are mostly opposites of pretty young well educated boys try and start a revolution for freedom*)

What do you think you'll read next?
In a complete change of pace, either the memoirs of an Infantry officer by Siegfried Sassoon so I can work on my Nanowrimo or some Scottish folktales to inspire some more silly fairy tales.


*Discworld is fantastic for showing how there's usually more than one opposite of something.

It's my first post graduation summer and time is going fast as it always does, faster ever year but bizarrely now It Doesn't Mean Anything.  September doesn't mean it's time to buy a notebook and some awesome new pens (still might, I always need more pens, especially in Technicolor) doesn't mean oh shit gotta figure out my schedule and write it done so I'm not wandering around going where does the math go? I can't find the math because it's in the Education building because my university is backwards.   I'm happy my friends will be back in the city but there's a lack of sense of impending doom which is quite frankly bizarre.

Well according to Rowling start making those sprog.
Best part of the Midnight Showing? When "19 years later" popped up and as one the theater groaned.
Second best part? Finding another use for my graduation robe.

Everyone is always complaining about noise in space, but no one ever complains about one of the great Sci-Fi cliches (at least Sci-Fi fanfiction) having to huddle for warmth because the life support syestems turn off.
Space is a vacum, not cold in the normal sense and in both the space shuttle and the soace station they don't have a heating syestem they have raditors that let off the extra heat generated by all the peoples bodies into space. It is a reallly fun cliche, but the science just keeps bothering me.

What's the best April Fool's joke you've seen today?

First Porn in No gravity!
My exploration of space teacher always has a power point unning during the begining of class with interesting facts and this week in space, stuff like that. Today tucked in among the real stuff were fake slides. Warren Buffet is going to make first no-grav porn "to boldly come," Kennady banned Cuban Cigars in space, and the Russians tried to blow up Apollo 11's landing site but they missed and the rocket came back and exploded over Sibera.
Then we talked about the pyshics of Sex in space, I think the answer would have to be some sort of stretching sleeping bag thingy, though magnets and some sort of harness were also suggested

It's the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. What season do you want it to be where you live?

I like spring, especially now that I'm at college and there's concret so I don't have to trudge through the mud. I like the birds and maple syrup season and the warmth. Also nancing anbout in springy skirts and frolicing

What's the story behind your username?

When I was 13 I shaved my head and my friend and I decided to try and trick the teacher by proclaiming me a new student named Fred, after a cartoon charecter I used to draw for her. the trick didn't last but the name stuck and I remained Fred for several years (at the same time cross dressing and keeping the short hair. oh the many many interesting conversations that lead to. Including my science teacher calling my mom to say what a fine young son she had.)
My other friend already knew someone who went by Fred the god, so I became Fred god of fill in the blank.
