A fun timewaster: Keys to History: Games . See if you are a good Victorian. The "Mind Your Manners" game is especially good.
I got the name for this journal from World Wide Words. It seemed very appropriate--both for my life and my conversational style.
In other news, I finally got the SFBC order, although Old Man's War is apparently backordered. The invoice claims it'll be shipped March 31....
Memory In Death (JD Robb) is the latest in my Guilty Pleasure addiction to this SFish series. This particular one I liked better than Origin in Death, the previous book. It's a bit different--most of the book is taken up with a case out of Eve's backstory, and the other characters make fewer appearances than usual.
Online Sudoku, one game per day. They are supposedly about to implement rankings.
This looks interesting. SimSchool. As soon as I get arountuit and move some big files off on CD, I think I'll give it a whirl.
Found via Download Squad yesterday, this Portable Puzzle Collection has a lot of good stuff, including NetWalk, which I used to play regularly, as well as a Sudoku game and a version of Planarity, although it's not as nice as the online version.
Recently re-joined the Science Fiction Book Club and got a stack of books to add to the TBR pile.
The Wizard's War dduane
This is the 8th book in her wonderful Young Wizards series that begins with So You Want to be a Wizard. I'm also reading the 3rd volume in the Feline Wizards series online! She's publishing it chapter by chapter at The Big Meow.
I also got an omnibus book club edition of Betsy the Vampire Queen (MaryJanice Davidson) containing Undead and Unwed, Undead and Unemployed, Undead and Unappreciated and Undead and Unreturnable. I enjoyed them, although not as much as some of the other vampire series I'm reading.
Still in the queue:
This Witch for Hire (Kim Harrison) another omnibus edition with Dead Witch Walking and The Good, the Bad and the Undead. This series is a good bit darker than the Betsy series but I like the main character better.
Solstice Wood (Patricia McKillip) is a followup to her Winter Rose and I either didn't read that or I've forgotten too much. I may put this one aside until I can get a copy of the earlier one.
The Big Over Easy (Jasper Fforde) is the first in a new series by the author of The Eyre Affair. Haven't really started it, but noticed that either the cats or oangelo143 got some water or something on it (grrr). It's not tooo damaged though.
I've also got 3 more coming, yay! Memory in Death (JD Robb), Shadowmarch (Tad Williams) and Old Man's War (John Scalzi).
These should keep me busy for a week or two....
Only years after all the cool kids got a LiveJournal, here I am.
