Is by Meimi, that wonderful Goddess who brings joy and happiness to the hearts of Ingrids.
This time, Meimi brought joy by doing a layout of Isumi Shinichirou and Waya Yoshitaka, of Hikaru no Go. It is full of wub.

I am full of pancakes, because the Children's Wish foundation was having a pancake breakfast at the co-op.

Also, I like pancakes.

In other news - every time I see photos of Gabe of Penny Arcade fame, I'm struck, and also vaguely disturbed, by how he could easily be one of my brother's friends. Well, without the acne that my brother's friends have, or the horrible haircuts. There's something deeply Wrong about that.

Ingrid's February Desktop.

An excuse to use the rather cute Yuki, Tohru, and Kyou valentine's wallpaper.

Excerpts from a Locus interview with Connie Willis.

Now I can blame September 11th, 2001, for something besides pissing me off with endless, angsty, one-sided news.

I -want- that UFO abduction novel. Now, dammit.

Word is that Willis is also planning on doing two more Oxford books. Hot damn.

I missed seeing her. I've just been lying in bed making myself feel miserable. It's not my fault this time, though. She didn't tell me she'd be up early. She can't even be bothered to get up early when I have work.

Not my fault. I miss her, and I hate it.

Meril got me "summarizing" the first two Honor Harrington books today.

"On Basilisk Station"
Honor Harrington: Everyone hates me, even though I'm incredibly wonderful. I also have a telepathic cat.
(Honor is screwed over by her superiors and does her Duty while a bunch of aliens get high and shoot things.)
Honor Harrington: Yay, people don't hate me anymore! Except for McKeon.
Alistair McKeon: Thanks to your understanding and sympathetic attitudes, I can now handle my feelings of jealousy towards you, Honor Harrington. You're my new best friend.
(Honor saves the day. A bunch of people die. But it's okay, because she gets lots of money for it.)

"Honor of the Queen"
Honor Harrington: I am being assigned to a diplomatic mission. I am certain I will screw up.
(She screws up)
Graysonites: Women can't hold positions of power! You suck, Honor Harrington!
(Many Graysonitse molest Honor Harrington's women)
Honor Harrington: Wah! I can't do this!
(She runs away)
(A bunch of people die and they're important. Honor comes back)
Honor Harrington: Important people have died. No more people should die. To ensure that, I'm going to punch this asshole that's been annoying me since the beginning of the book.
(She punches him and makes him cry like a baby, then proceeds to get a lot of people killed, and many women raped)
(She is given the opportunity to kill her enemies and doesn't, because she is Good)
Protector Mayhew: For keeping us from dying, having this Grayson title you don't want, and heaps of land to make up for the fact that we can't fix your horrible disfiguring injuries.
Old Coot: Because Manticore is better than Grayson, and I want to have wild sex with you, have this meaningless Manticoran title you don't want.

I'm just sitting here, trying not to cry, and feeling very shaky.

I know I said I'd try not to blog depressing and self-pitying things while I had the sparkly layout.

I lied. I do that.

I haven't blogged for a while. I really haven't been in the mood.

Stephen sent me "Fantasy" yesterday though (thanks man) and bell amused me with Hikaru no Go and Fruits Basket fanart. Both helped. Are helping. Something. You guys rock. Lots of love to you both.

I'll try to be more emotionally stable and blog someting interesting tomorrow. Sorry, folks.
