sineala: Detail of Harry Wilson Watrous, "Just a Couple of Girls" (reading)

What I Just Finished Reading

Arkady & Boris Strugatsky, Roadside Picnic (tr. Olena Bormashenko): The Strugatsky brothers have been on my to-read list for a long time, and this seems to be the only book of theirs in print in English; I think I would have preferred Monday Begins on Saturday. Anyway, if you want bleak Soviet SF about a world where the aliens came but didn't care about us and left their trash behind, I've got a book for you right here. It's about a group of "stalkers" who go into the Zone to pilfer said alien trash, an avocation which is occasionally deadly. And also, you know, what is intelligence, what is humanity, etc etc. And a lot of drinking. Really a lot of drinking. It was good, and the translation read very fluently, but I think maybe next time I'd like a book with more people and fewer faceless lonely murderous voids of existence.

What I'm Reading Now

Black Panther #13, Infamous Iron Man #7, Mighty Captain Marvel #4, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #18, Ultimates 2 #6, X-Men Blue #2, X-Men Gold #2 )

What I'm Reading Next

Dunno.

Here we are midweek and so it's time for our anti-procrastination post. What is the one thing that's hanging over you, dragging you down and all those other descriptions that apply? Something that if you just had the oomph to tackle it would fix it and leave you free of its nagging and gleaming with pride at your accomplishments.

Well this is the time to tackle it, you know why? We're here with you cheering you on, because we know you're awesome. So tell us about it and let us know how things are going (and whether you can hear our cheers or see our flying pompoms!).

Good luck team and go go go!

Catching up on The Voice, and there's a dude on here (Jack Cassidy, bless his heart) who sings the way I write sometimes, where I think I am maybe skating the edge of greatness, writing without a filter and letting it all hang out, but in actuality I just need to be patted on the head and sent home. ♥

I was just thinking about this the other day, that zone you get in where you're like, fuck it, I'm gonna stop self-censoring and just write what I feel, this is amazing, and then later you're like, WTF WAS THAT METAPHOR? I DIE OF EMBARRASSMENT.

I participated in [community profile] firewhiskeyfic last night and I just spent a few fun minutes going back through the threads at our encouragement/support post. As fun as we are when sober, we're even more hilarious when drunk.

Alas, it's too late to participate in this round, but if you want a laugh, go check out the post. *shakes head* We're pretty wacky. And you can definitely tell when someone gets drunk. :P

Oh, and the results of our drunken revelry go up on Tuesday, so plan to check that out.
I, for one, will be interested to see what I wrote, since I have no clue. (Did I mention I was drunk?) :P
I'm prepared to be very surprised. *g*
