thanks universe for creating the internet.  and al gore's penis.

thanks reader

thanks to my parents, whom i neglect to thank every now and then.  and thanks to all of my ancestors whose shoulder i now stand upon... for toiling in africa, escaping from trees, walking to the promised land, diaspora'ing to europe, taking a boat to new york, taking TWA to LA, and leaving me here... on the top of all of your collective struggles.  in case you can hear me somewhere, this is awesome!  i'm gonna go eat some ice cream.


That's fiction for chicks. Kinda like chick flicks, except it's reading. So it takes a lot longer and you can't sleep through it.
I've been spending my last 6 weeks reading the Game of Thrones epic saga. I'm on book 3 (of 5).
It was really cool til (spoiler alert) book 2 had the surprise ending of dragons! Oooh how mystical. Maybe we'll get fairies and unicorns next.
That said I can't put it down cause every now and then there're beheadings.
So I guess it has crossover appeal.
