Been very busy for the past two days, mainly because they are my only days off this week. Yesterday I finished my teeny-tiny bit of Christmas shopping and read two whole books, plus finishing a third.

The first was Jacqueline Carey's Saints Astray a good read but nothing particularly earth-shattering. The second was Amy Kathleen Ryan's Glow, a SF YA that doesn't quite deliver on it's potential and is by no means "the most riveting series since The Hunger Games" (actual back cover text.) The third is Bunheads, which reminded me of another book I read a couple years ago, except that one was about a model instead of a dancer (they both have the exact same ending, for one) and snore. There's nothing in there that's not mildly familiar from Black Swan and Center Stage.

Today I took Louie to the vet, where I found a lump on his tail just as the doctor walked in. It turned out to be just a cyst, thankfully, but I do have to keep an eye on it. And I just finished Jhumpa Lahiri's The Nakesake, which was quite good.

Unpopular opinion annex: The trailer for The Hobbit looks impressively LOTRish, but between the singing and the dwarf parade it reminded me exactly why I could never much get into Tolkien. But I'll probably see it anyway, because somehow Jackson's brand of tweeness annoys me less that Tolkien's. Go figure.

Oh, and I finally installed iWork! Pages is no Indesign/Quark, but it'll do.

FYI, for folks who don't like the redesigned comment pages, I'm hearing that you don't need a code to create a new Dreamwidth account for the rest of the month. I'm going to try to be better at crossposting.
