Let it snow!

It's snowing here. Really, really snowing. Virginia and I took our morning walk in the flurries before it turned to serious snow. Welcome, beautiful winter, my favorite time of year!

Happy birthday to tuilelindowen and whswhs, and happy early birthday to arkhamdenizen. Best wishes for many happy returns of the day!


* I can't say enough good things about The Apex Book of World SF. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend doing so. The related World SF News Blog has now been syndicated for LJ as world_sf.

* This is a scream: "Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Author." (Thanks to euclase.) Read and laugh.

* Heartfelt thanks to dodger_winslow for the shout-out here and Happy Catholic for the shout-out here. I greatly appreciate it. And thanks also to all of you who have sent me holiday cards. I've been thoroughly enjoying getting lovely mail from my friends from all over the world!


And here, for your Friday amusement, is what happens when Dangerous Minds meets Harry Potter (thanks to The Hog's Head):



Student: “My father’s in Azkaban. My brother’s in Azkaban. What makes you think I have a choice?”
Ms. Granger: “What makes you think you don’t?”

So can you quote Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons?

"If my knowledge of sci-fi movies is correct, which it is, the black car is an advanced probe for the mothership. Now, if you're through, I'm going to spend my last hours on Earth complaining about movies on the internet."

The Sterotypes are funny! But although I see Lovecraft AND Poe on the list, I don't see Tolkien! So for me, other than "being into bondage" I guess I'm safe. :D (Yes, I love me some Shakespeare.)

I know! I was looking for Tolkien, too. I'll just go with short people who like mushrooms, since I know that applies to me. ;) LOL!

Woot for snow :) We might get some tonight and tomorrow. We'll see... just wet out right now.

And thanks for the snowflake cookie :) A herald of things to come :)

You're most welcome! I hope you're keeping warm over there. I'm sipping cocoa at this very moment. ;)
