This guy is so stupid that the burning from his stupid alone might offset the high heating costs during the current cold weather. (via [livejournal.com profile] cereta)

I'll now imagine Xena doing something entertaining to him. And then I'll read my new comic books, because I was at the comic book store today and got Terry Moore's "Echo", the new Courtney Crumrin, and "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier".

The weather forecast had prophesied mostly clouds for Saturday, and partly-sunny for Sunday, so I spent a brilliant autumn Saturday grocery shopping and riding my motorbike, and the evening bicycling all over town for the Tech and Science Open Night.

Then I went to bed early because the following day (today) I wanted to go for a hike in the hills. Only, when I awoke at 8, it was raining. I slept two more hours and it was still raining. So much for my plans for the day, and I went back to bed and slept another four hours. Only when I had breakfast, the rain ceased. In the late afternoon, some blue sky was visible through the clouds. Stupid weather forecast. It used to be that something as irrelevant as rain didn't keep me from long walks, but hiking in the flatlands in the rain is pleasant if one is dressed for the weather, in the hills it's a muddy and slippery affair.

At least I got enough sleep.

Last week I was very busy fighting entropy by putting an immense amount of energy into getting through my to-do-list, with some success.

I also read a few books.

Jo Walton: The King's Peace / The King's Name (2000/2001) )
Rosemary Sutcliff: The Eagle of the Ninth (1954) )
Terry Moore: Strangers in Paradise XIX (Comic) )
Stan Sakai: Usagi Yojimbo XXI -- The Mother of Mountains (Comic) )

Latest News: Dumbledore was gay. via Making Light.
ETA: Fandom is all over it. Neil Gaiman has some very reasonable things to say about things the author knows about the characters. There is the expected howling and gnashing of teeth from the expected non-fandom places (mocked here).

I've been lazy, so most of this is old news.
