I'm in the middle of the most recent October Daye book by Seanan McGuire and enjoying it ridiculous amounts. Over the past month or two I've read the most recent Dresden Files book by Jim Butcher (which was awesome and heist-y and delightful), the most recent Iron Druid book by Kevin Hearne (which was overall entertaining but a bit disjointed), Among Others by Jo Walton (which was haunting and distinctive and basically tailor-made for people who were the kind of bookworm I was growing up; unsurprisingly I loved it), Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride (which is the sequel to Hold Me Closer, Necromancer; both were pretty hilarious and fun, as you might guess from the titles), and the first three books of Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles (which were full of fascinating world-building and endearing characters, and I'm eagerly awaiting the concluding book(s) of the series).

I have chilled coffee with agave and milk that my partner made for me this morning and stuck in the fridge for drinking in the afternoon. I have a part-time job that I like and sporadic freelance work. The Yuletide tagset is open for perusal -- there are so many awesome fandoms I want to write for, and I have eight nominations in mind that I must whittle down to six, which is hard because I love all of them, but that is the best kind of problem to have. Soon it will be writing season, which means [livejournal.com profile] mini_wrimo is taking signups for daily writing in November, woot!

And hockey is back! I stayed up late watching the two games NBCSN showed last night, the Dallas Stars & Chicago Blackhawks will be on my television tonight, and I'll be at the Texas Stars season opener (and Calder Cup banner raising!) on Saturday. I wish sometimes that Hockey RPF fandom hadn't essentially jumped ship wholesale to Tumblr, which I don't keep up with, but it's okay, because the best thing it gave me was the opportunity to discover a love of the game, and that I get to keep regardless.

Life has been kind of mixed recently. But today, today is a good day.

Mm, books...

Tumblr alarms me. Mostly 'cause I don't like the sort of change where people move out of the neighborhood, or where I have to. Also, because the internet is too big. :)

*waves hello*

Agh, just realized I never said hello back! So, hello! :) Hope you're doing well!

I feel very similarly about Tumblr. I can see how people might like it for certain things, but for long-form text conversations it strikes me as quite awkward... I don't know. I'm definitely getting crotchety as I get older. *g*

Yay, books!

:)

I'm slogging along on the dissertation, and otherwise having a fairly amusing. :) Drop me a line next time you're out this way if you have time to get together. (I entertain fantasies of someday actually traveling to places where people I know live, but that's on hold until I manage to graduate, at least. Which, with any luck, will be a finite amount of time from now.)

Dissertation progress is a good thing! I hope we'll get back up your way sooner rather than later, but I don't know when. But I'll definitely keep you in the loop. :) And you are always welcome here!
