Hmm, my schedule is whacked this week, so there's no real way I could plan a trip to Maine. Pity... I miss my nephews.
I need to get some new shoes!
I need some new books, too. Just finishing up Yarrow and the rest of the Charles de Lint books I had in storage and had almost forgotten about. Mmm, urban fantasy is probably my favorite type of fiction, though there's not a lot of it out there. (Urban fantasy is basically combining traditional faery and other mythic elements into a modern setting.) Much of de Lint's stuff is good, particularly his middle works; Memory and Dream is the one that sticks out in my head at the moment. My friend Crystal also introduced me to Emma Bull's War for the Oaks, which is one of the earliest and best books of this genre, and which finally went back into print only a few years ago. Hmm, I really need to find more authors of the genre; pity there aren't that many.
Hmm, I'm hungry now. I blame tzisorey for that, as he's talking about pasta and Chinese food over on ICQ. That brat! I'll get him later.
